  1. Ability to enter missing track number (or set to 00)

    I have a number of pieces that are the result of recording old cassettes, or sometimes albums, or pieces that I have recorded live, or lectures, or whatever, that simply do not HAVE track numbers.

    Bliss complains that they're uncompliant, because they don't HAVE a track number... which is fine. But I have to bring up some external tag editor because BLISS doesn't let me enter a track number. Ideally, a "if track is missing utterly, number them in alpha order in that directory automatically, and don't ask me" function would be best. Or, perhaps, a "Set to 00" button,…

    • Play nice with Kodi

      Kodi (formerly XBMC) is my, and a few million other people's, media player of choice. To make a good looking library Kodi uses various image files as 'posters', 'fanart', 'slideshows' etc. as well as the standard folder.jpg/cover.jpg. Kodi also likes to save various kinds of extended metadata in xml-format NFO files in the library path under the artist and album folders.

      It would be nice if Bliss' file handling rouines could at least learn to keep the relevant NFO and image files in the right place relative to the music files when renaming and so on.

      Even better if Bliss…

      • Automatic tag completion

        I expected Bliss to fix missing tags automatically (genres, years, etc.). I have around 3,000 albums in my library, over 1,000 of which don't have a year. I was surprised that a scan didn't automatically fix this. Instead, I need to go to my "Inbox" and tell it to fix these, but only up to 96 at a time - that's over 100 clicks to fix them all (hardly automated). Can't Bliss be set to automatically fix anything you put in your criteria without so much manual intervention?

        • Add an "ignore words" list under Settings to facilitate proper sorting of albums and artists.

          For example, "a" and "the" could be on the ignore list by default such that "The Nightmare Before Christmas" gets sorted with the N albums, not the T albums.

          Making the list a modifiable setting would allow a user to add words for albums in other languages. For example, the user might choose to add "la", "le" and "les" to ensure that "La boite aux jeux jeux" gets sorted with the B albums, not the L albums.

          • process improvements.

            I am processing 170,000 files. So I have some comments on this very good software...
            1) Please allow me to auto-accept size and track number changes without clicking each album
            2) Please have some intelligence in the Genre such that "country" automatically becomes "Country", (as well as "Singer-Songwriter --> Singer/Songwriter", "R&b --> R&B"), etc. And let me autoaccept those
            3) Please give me a way to clear out all uncessary information that is not part of the standard IDV tags (and clear out any comments, etc, that are part of the tags standard but are not necessary).
            4) Please don't…

            • The ability of Bliss to accept the artwork already correctly attached in iTunes

              In my experience Bliss has changed the artwork of my files transferred from Itunes to Vortexbox. Seems a strange thing to do if the artwork is already correct.

              • a new file name parameter rule for "Various Artists"

                I'd like to have a rule that allows me to add Artist name to the file name as follows: <tracknumber:nn> - <artist name> - <track name> only when the album artist = "Various Artists"
                The normal naming convention is <tracknumber:nn> - <track name> when the Album Artist does not equal "Various Artists"

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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…

                      • 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 reports on library status/new changes via email or messaging

                          Reports via email or other messaging that notify you on any new albums/changes to your library and whether they are compliant - so when I rip a new CD on vortexbox then bliss works its magic and I get an email telling me whether its compliant or not, also an overall report on the state of my library would be good

                          • Capability do delete inconsistent entries in the database

                            After changing title or artist tag of an album with an external program, bliss' automatic reorganization of files and folders makes the changes accordingly but leaves the previous entry in an inconsistent state, showing 'Unkown' and a number of errors. It would be useful if the compliance filter could be added with an entry to filter these albums, giving a resulting page where each album found has a delete button to get rid of these inconsistencies, instead of doing a complete rescan of the music library.

                              I have a directory with Hi-Res sound, which i would like to keep separate from all other music i have in lower quality.

                              Would be nice to have them tagged as bliss does, but keep them separate.

                                  • Adding a "right click" to analyze tags and art with BLISS.

                                    Adding a "right click" to analyze tags and art with BLISS. This would allow a way to check a mp3 without having to do a full scan with BLISS.

                                    • Tags - Save column display settings

                                      It would be very useful if you can save your view/display settings for you tags.
                                      Now, Every time I go back to the tags page it displays the default columns, and I have to select again the Year and Genre columns.
                                      I know files may have different field tags applied, but this would be useful for Common Tags only

                                      • Allow for multiple sets of rules depending on single/album/soundtrack/compilation

                                        I've always distinguished between singles and full albums.

                                        Singles sit in the root folder, and take the form <artist> - <track name>. I do keep the meta-data accurate, so I can still tell what album the single comes from and what its track number is (and of course I want the album art), but the filename is structured to allow quick windows explorer parsing.

                                        Albums are organized by artist: music\<artist>\<album>\<track number> - <track name>. Of course, compilations and sound tracks are another matter.

                                        It would be nice to be able to designate tracks as part of an album, singles, soundtracks,…
