I don't see the immediate benefit of having iTunes integration. I solely use iTunes for putting music on my ipod/iphone. And that is just a matter of dragging a few files from my music library on my NAS into iTunes. The music library on the NAS is larger then what the ipods can hold, mainly because I don't use mp3. My sole purpose of listening to music is on my living-room hifi audio system, which doesn't use iTunes at all (upnp streaming and NAS).
But maybe I am missing something? What I could see as a benefit is the rating-tag you can easily add in iTunes, but Bliss has nothing of that yet.
I am definitely voting for this, but want to keep The Beatles be stored under the B not T directory. Thanks!
When an album is not genre compliant, you only get 2 options:
Set to <alternative genre>
Allow genre <original genre> and add to the list.
I would like to have the option to add multiple genre tags, which would result in:
inside the song file.
So the option to add a second or third genre tag.
Not sure what you mean with 'music player' but here is how I see it. In modern hifi systems, you have a upnp music player (like Linn, Naim, Sonos, etc...), a upnp control device (ipad, ipod, etc...) and a NAS (Synology, Qnap, etc...) that contains a upnp music server. The music server contains the music and the index to that music. And the index is displayed on the control device, where you can select the music to play based on the tagging (rating, album, artist, etc).
To adjust the tagging you need to run a program on a PC. And that is where Bliss can shine!!! No need for running a tagging program on a PC anymore because Bliss runs on the same server (NAS) and is able to change the tagging via a web-frontend through the same ipad that controls the music. Brilliant! Because it opens up providing feedback to the music and change tags directly.
So my request is to change the rating and quality tag directly on the server through the Bliss web-frontend. This will have an effect on the index of the upnp music server, which results in the ability to find your music more easily.
Why not use the separate composer tag for this? I mean there is already a tag for it, so why not use it? Also I tend to disagree with this approach because today's artists could perform work from Mozart and then I want to see who the actual artist is, and mozart as the composer.
