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

  1. 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.

  2. Ability to enter missing track number (or set to 00) for filenames

    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,…

  3. Better image downsampling algorithm

    Very high-resolution covers look quite ugly the way bliss downscales them at the moment. The problem is that you're probably using bilinear interpolation. This produces aliasing artefacts when downsampling.

    I don't really know how to do that in Java, but if you need more info on the image processing side of things, I do know about those.

    This is obviously not the most important thing in the world :)

  4. Ability to define file permissions for Unix systems

    When Bliss modifies files on a Unix system it sets default file permissions of 644 using whatever owner and group that Bliss is running as. I would like to be able to define what permissions get applied to files, so I don't have to manually alter permissions if I want other users to be able to modify my music files.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. "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.

  10. 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_(2008_film) ) 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.

  11. mediamonkey like renaming options

    Ad if and left statements to renaming would make this just about perfect

    example:
    $left(\Music\$if(<Album Artist>,$if(<Album Artist>=various,<Album Artist>,$if(<Album Artist>=techno,<Album Artist>,$if(<Album Artist>=soundtrack,_<Album Artist>,<Album [email protected]><Album Artist>))),[email protected]<Artist>)\$if(<Album>,$if(<Year>,<Year> - )<Album>)\$if(<track#>,<track#> - )<Artist> - <Title>,240)

    would produce:
    \Music\A\A Perfect Circle\2004 - eMOTIVe\02 - A Perfect Circle - Imagine.mp3
    \Music\Z\ZZ Top\1983 - Eliminator\01 - ZZ Top - Gimme All Your Lovin'.mp3
    \Music_Soundtrack\2006 - V for Vendetta\09 - Cat Power - I Found a Reason.mp3
    \Music_Techno\1991 - XL Recordings- The Second Chapter\07 - Cubic 22 - Night in Motion (Original mix).flac
    \Music_Various\2007 - Endzeit Bunkertracks, Act 3 (disc 2- Torture session)\01 - Faderhead…

  12. 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

  13. 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…

  14. Auto tag compilations

    bliss should auto tag compilations. I would like bliss to tag every album that has either Various Arist (or some other similar moniker in a defined set) in Album Artist tag with the compilation tag and tag every album that has the compilation tag with the same Various Artists title in the Album Artist tag.

    See also http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/1760321-add-setting-for-compilation-directory-name-seems- which occurs because the "various artists" alias in bliss is hardcoded to "Various".

    The reason for me wanting this is so that I can get control over all my compilationalbums when I look through my album collection on my music player. If…

  15. List recently added albums first

    Sometimes album art is added and the album is compliant, but it was a slightly different cover to the one you wanted e.g. special edition.

    An option to list recently added albums first, would be excellent so you can easily see them as they are added, and select alternative album art.

  16. 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.

  17. automatic search and replace of genres

    With a look-up table, one could convert, for example, genres such as OBC, Broadway, Musicals, Original Cast, Cast Album and so forth all to the same, uniform genre (in this case, I might prefer to have them all tagged as Original Cast). This could also be used to reduce the number of genres. Yes, it reduces specificity but it might be nice to have all jazz listed as jazz, instead of "stride piano," "ragtime" "dixieland" "trad jazz" "modern jazz" "contemporary jazz" and so forth.

  19. For file organisation, create a new album artist variable to order artist names as Last, First.

    Create a new album artist token to order artist names as Last, First. Also order groups as "The Beatles" to "Beatles, The"

  20. Add a 'starts with' filter to the artist overview

    The album overview has a 'starts with' filter which enabled you to filter by the start character.

    The same option should be available for the artist overview.
