  1. Provide an init.d script with install for Linux users

    I'm struggling to get Bliss set up as a service in Ubuntu 11.10 that auto starts on boot and can be stopped/started/restarted with the standard Linux "service bliss start" style commands.

    I'd really appreciate it if you could include an init.d script with the Linux install, or provide instructions for setting this up on the blisshq website.

      • Provide a Way to Identify Whether Album Art has been Selected Automatically or Manually

        It would be useful to be able to differentiate between Album Art selected by Bliss and which has been selected by the user. This would allow for a quick verification of Bliss selections, whilst ignoring those albums which I have already chosen the art manually. Even better, if I could filter the display by this criteria (ie "Show Bliss Selections Only") then I would only be reviewing choices made by Bliss.

        • undo button

          there should be an undo button for when a slip of the mouse has applied a change that was incorrect.

          • allow bliss to remove all surplus embedded art work automatically

            Some albums have multiple embedded artwork.

            I would like bliss to automatically remove all surplus embedded artwork without me having to do it for each individual album

            • drop "The" from result when using group token

              When using group to create a folder structure, is it possible to drop "The" from the result? example, The Beatles would result in B, not T.

              • The ? condition should have an else option.

                I generally use the ? to check if something exits, if true do this, if not do that.
                Example
                <discnumber>?(<discnumber>,1)<tracknumber:nn> so if i have multiple discs I get 101, 102, 201,202 etc.. and if is only one or not set I get 101,102, etc

                • Switchable alphabetical sort

                  Currently bliss display album covers sorted by artist or album name etc.
                  The fact that names are sorted result in thumbnails constantly appearing before the "current" mouse position thus shifting position of album you're working on.
                  If albums thumbnails were displayed in the same order that they are scanned it would allow me to be more productive by not invalidating the working screen area.

                  • Manage playlists with regard to the planed "Organise files" feature

                    I really like the idea of the upcoming "Organise Files" feature (files are renamed and moved into directories based on their tags, like: artist/album/tracknum-trackname). However there is one major reason for me why I would not use that feature at the moment: it would break any playlists that have those files in them (at least all the ones based on file path, most I guess).

                    My suggestion is to add a feature that corrects playlists when changing the path of a music file (name and directory). To keep things simple I would have the user supply one directory of playlists…

                    • being able to apply the same genre to whole album

                      so if you select a genre for one track in the album, there should be an option to apply it to the entire album.

                      • On the installed page, provide an option to show the size of the album art

                        Under each album art picture on the Installed page, optionally display the size of the picture; e.g. 300x300, 500x500, etc.

                        • Merge Artists based on aliases

                          Some musical genres may be more concerned by this feature than others, but there are many artists (including famous ones) who release music under aliases.

                          At the moment, Bliss is "only able" to manage renaming and file sorting through the artist field. This feature idea would require a database connection such as discogs in order to scrape the "main" artist.

                          Example : Aphex Twin in his long career has released records under the name of Aphex Twin, AFX, Richard D. James, GAK, Polygon Window...
                          Renaming through Bliss would move all these files around with no connection whatsoever.

                          Discogs manages to…

                          • update multiple art changes for various artist albums at once

                            I have a box set of various artists -- bliss got something like 60 covers wrong, and it seems like I have to change them one at a time.

                              It would be handy that you can see which files and folders haven been handled by Bliss. I have more than 3400 albums on high quality resolution, but it is impossible to see what still have to be changed

                                  right now the "fix all visible" button doesn't seem to work (miught be a UI issue). Regardless I would like a button to fix all issues... not just the 96 visible on a page.

                                  • I picked this but there were choices

                                    For missing cover art there may be a number of choices - have Bliss select one (the first one it finds perhaps?) and flag for the user to 'override' or 'accept'.

                                    Right now I'm looking at >900 to choose manually, in lots of them the first picture found would be quite OK and would save me many hours of clicking. But flag them so that I can review the selection at leaisure.
                                    OK, this is essebtially what's going on right now, but the difference is that right now there's NO artwork - I'd rather have some with the wrong artwork…

                                    • Monitoring a master music server library but storing music local

                                      I am storing all my music on a central music server in the house. New music is discovered and added to iTunes local library (in order for the kids to be able to play music offline or when they are out of the house) using iTunes Folder Watch. But as I see it both the old folder watch software and the new Library Toolkit cannot monitor changes to music on the music server and then syncronize to the local iTunes Library. The new adverticed facility where library toolkit should be able to monitor changes is only working if iTunes media…

                                        It would be handy if there were e-mail notifications or some form of messaging to report when a job was completed and what issues, if any, there were.

                                        This would be handy for unattended operation and for when there is further downstream processing. Is there any form of API that can be queried?

                                        Would you be interested in adding these features, if necessary on a commercial non-exclusive basis?

                                        • Write musicbrainz Track IDs (MUSICBRAINZ_ID) into files

                                          I'm not sure what exactly bliss does when it is fingerprinting but it would be helpful if it could write the MBIDs that it either generates or receives from MusicBrainz into the files.

                                          Reason: The popular Squeezebox TrackStat plugin can use these to identify songs even after they have been moved or renamed. If there are no Track IDs in the files, all TrackStat statistics (Playcount, rating etc) will be lost if files are renamed or moved.
