bliss

Welcome to our official feedback forum. Do you have an idea? We really want to hear from you!

  1. Compilation specific file org pattern

    The thing is that I have a lot of albums (4000 and more coming in) and the naming scheme for compilations varies somewhat. Some are tagged as a compilation (with the compilation tag), others are tagged with Various Artists in the Album Artist tag.

    So I would like bliss to move all albums that are tagged with the compilation tag (see http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/2290707-auto-tag-compilations ) and has Various Artists as Album Artist into the Various Artists folder on my server (and hence rename the folder- and file-name).

    Therefore, I want a specific file org pattern for compilations.

  2. View track on iTunes

    It would be good if you can make a button that would navigate us to the track within iTunes. This way we can change the name of an album or view the other fields for editing. Love your product! It has saved me so much time and effort. Thanks!

  3. Better quality album art...

    I end up manually updating my album art, as the quality is not good enough. I always select a resolution of 500x500, but sometimes album art is the correct resolution but very compressed and poor quality. I end up doing a manual search on google images for 500x500 artwork and find a much better quality image. Is there any way Bliss can look at compression or file size and choose better quality images automatically? Maybe extra sources for album art would help, if this is possible.

  4. Allow me to enter the correct file name/path when that is the non-compliance error

    when I get a non compliance error, the program is not offering n option for me to enter a fix, and no automatic fix is offered, so I have to browse the folder andattempt a fix. I'm not sure why

  6. update more than one album's artwork in one go

    Say- shift click ablums - then do an artwork lookup (say I have three CD's with a single cover artwork), update all three in one go.

  7. Provide support for film soundtracks.

    To give an example of a Bollywood release, lets take an example of a movie called Dostana ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dostana(2008film) ) Each song in the release can be sung by a different artist.This is where i beleive the problem starts.I see multiple albums on Bliss with different album artist names below. To resolve the issue i erase all the info of Artist(s) from the file, and then it recognizes the release as one album.

  8. Custom Folder image for compilation folders

    In the blog, you wrote:

    .. bliss tries to work out whether the directory in which the tracks
    .. are stored is used exclusively for that one album. Otherwise,
    .. some music players may use the artwork as the art for other
    .. albums. Sometimes you may have a directory that stores
    .. multiple miscellaneous tracks from different albums.

    which is cool, but it would be nice if I could assign custom art to the FOLDER as well.

    It's wonderful that bliss gets the right art into each song, but when viewing the tree structure in some players, the folder.jpg…

  9. Option to alter memory consumption

    Currently, bliss as a service is chewing ~200Mb with consistently ~3% CPU cycles on a modern computer with a small library. Yes, it's mostly a Java issue (it loving memory and all), but when you also use your server for VM's, 4Gb starts to look a bit... weak... Also, reduction in CPU cycles = reduction in power bill.

    I would like an option where I could specify the ceiling of how much memory bliss should consume. The levels would be something like 64, 128, 256 MB.

  10. "Start fresh" option in the admin panels" delete all previous knowledge of this installation.

    After doing a substantial cleanup of duplicate files, moving junk around, moving folders and generally re-logicalizing the entire library, it became clear that Bliss was now hopelessly confused. I needed to go into the .bliss folder and clear out the database that held bliss's knowledge of the library as it was.

    This was something of a pain, although what to delete was in the documentation on the bliss web site. It would be nice to have a button (with confirmation of course) that said "Start from scratch." or words to that effect.

  11. Format track number as xx/yy (yy:album number of tracks)

    'Track number length at least' could host en additional entry to specify track as xx/yy

  12. 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

  13. Be clear about charges before installation

    I think the developer should be clearer about the £10 charge for 1000 "fixes".

  14. Summary of stats

    bliss should present a summary of music library statistics. For example, number of albums, of which how many are compliant and how many not. This could also be split by type of rule - e.g. how much cover art is compliant, how many files/folders are correct etc.

  15. Add a table/details overview (in addition to the grid)

    Iit would be good to have a list/table view with album names down the left, and columns for other aspects like artist names, compliancy of different rules and maybe shortcuts to functionality, e.g. changing the art, file paths or tags within the overview screen.

    The analogy are file explorers: typically they allow grid/thumbnail views as well as detail views where files can be ordered by different columns, and different metadata about the files can be viewed in the column cells.

    Just as with the grid view, you would be able to filter by compliance or startsWith. The option would likely…

  16. folder.jpg not updated when hidden/system attributes are set

    Windows Media Player (v12 Windows 7) marks folder.jpg and AlbumArtSmall.jpg with the System and Hidden attributes. Bliss should be able to handle overwriting these.

  17. Dynamic playlists

    bliss should allow automatic playlist management.

    I should be able to define a playlist, its location, and how it is made up (e.g. using genre, artist, year etc information).

    When music files are added or changed, bliss changes the playlist as appropriate.

  18. Use first track number if tagged with several

    foobar seems to be fiddling with my track numbers when I change other tags, leaving tracks with two track numbers set. Squeezebox just seems to use the first number, ignoring the second, as does Mp3tag. bliss insists the files should be renamed with notracknumber. Would be better if bliss just used the first track number or (even better) optionally fixed the track by removing the second track number.

  19. Support for "wildcard" directory prefix

    Support for "wildcard" prefixes to allow for directory structure such as /storage/music/flac & /storage/music/mp3. Pointing Bliss to /storage/music currently generates a Uncompliant file path warning.

  20. realtime album info

    We need to get away from tags (other than the basics: album artist, track titles, numbers...). Devices need to be able to pull up extensive tag info (other artists on a particular track, recording dates, track author...) in real time. Putting together all of this tag info takes much too much time. So, my Squeezebox should be able to go out to a bliss database when an album is being played, and display the information.
