    Additional comment in an idea merged into this one:

    When cover art is renamed, currently you can only choose a static name. I would prefer to be able to put the <artists name> and <album name> in the cover art file name. The same way as how we rename the music file.

    Yep, this would be useful and would improve integration with certain music players that require album/artist names in the cover art filenames. You could also store album art away from the files in a specific location, e.g.

    cover.jpg
    <album name>.jpg

    stores in the local folder...

    /artwork/<album name>.jpg

    stores in the root "artwork" folder.

    This is a bug - if the value is cleared it should be removed. What file format is this? Could you possibly share the file via support@blisshq.com ?

    @4pm that's as much support for _reading_ multiple genres as setting them, but I think this idea implies multiple genres are supported (including via a separator as well as having multiple fields) so the comment can stay here...

    @Bob Yes, it currently will.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    @kmb I think that's a slightly separate topic... although very related. This idea is specifically about setting to multiple genres.

    What you are saying sounds more general; allowing multiple genres, splitting by a delimiter and allowing subsequent assessment. But in terms of a specific thing to add to bliss, it depends what you mean by "clean"... If you can define that I would advise adding a new idea.

    But both would be great.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    Yeah, both those items could be configurable I think... with good defaults where possible.

    For the separator, if bliss sees an obvious one being used then that could be assumed as the correct separator, otherwise use the most widely used default (I think this is ";").

    The append/overwrite is a little like the singular embedded album art rule. It could be a separate rule to enforce single or multiple genres. Some music players don't support this approach, after all.

    Great, thanks I've just made the title a bit more specific.

    Do you mean support for multiple genre tags? What exactly do you want to see... the ability to add multiple genres in the album detail page, or the missing information / genre consolidation rules to tag multiple genres?

    See also https://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/35067847-linked-releases-discogs-musicbrainz-catalogue . This would probably work well with:

    @Jason No - at the moment automatic "watch" scans ("Listen for file changes") work on all folders that are added.

    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    How about "Rescan all filtered" so only the current filtered albums are rescanned? Plus add an "Unknown" filter to the compliance filters...

    That would be a little less cluttered...

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    Good point. Also there's a problem with associating the rescan button with the current filter - what about the album count? Is it only the 12 albums shown that are rescanned? So maybe the original idea is best.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    Maybe the rescan button should be associated with the filter that is currently applied? E.g. if you have just non-compliant albums shown, rescan rescans only the non-compliant.

    Thanks for the suggestion @Adam! What sort of thing should be organised within the movies/videos? Your own videos you've shot, or ripped DVDs, Blu-Rays etc?

    @Andrew makes sense - I often do the same thing - noticing things I want to update - although not always with album art.

    Totally appreciate this - it's been on my radar a while.

    The closest thing is using search on the Tags page, but this is an exact match and it shows files, not albums. This might at least give you an idea what album it is!

    I merged Matt Jenkins idea into this one:

    "Being able to search your database for artists, albums, albums of a specific genre, etc would be a huge bonus.

    When you have thousands of albums spread amongst many hundreds of artists finding the album or artist within the artist and album displays is an onerous task. A simple search box that returns simple text matches for artist, album, genre, etc., would be a good start. Advanced searches where you can search for strings within the specific topics of artist, album, genre etc., would be even better."

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    I agree. As more stuff is added to the interface, a search function becomes one of the easiest way of finding things.

    I think it should be top level (accessible from any page) and it shouldn't just search for albums, artists etc.... it should also search for bliss concepts. E.g. search for 'settings' - suggests a settings page. Search for 'albums' - suggests the album overview page. Anyway, that's a vision, maybe first step would just be album/artist search as you say.

    Thanks for that - yes, I suppose there's an assumption that the files are in the same folder, but especially with duplicates this might not be the case - there might be a full duplicate of an album, for instance.

    Oh, good point, thanks. The maximum size is actually relative to the assigned memory - 4MB is the size for the default memory. See https://www.blisshq.com/support/faq/general/assign-more-memory.html for assigning more memory.

    I'm surprised the licence only works on one instance. You could get in touch to resolve that... at worse we could give you another licence because this is covered within our licencing policy.

    What you're describing is essentially rulesets. I'd be interested to hear if this approach could work: https://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2022/03/21/organising-compilations-with-rulesets/

    @frank This is mostly about getting an export of the library I think - missing tracks, multi disc releases and so on are dealt with elsewhere.

    Thanks for sharing that. This is really interesting - I've long thought about something we have lost in the move to sharing - the ability to share your curated music library.

    I wonder if something similar would be useful to people. Fits in well with "The Big Idea" too - http://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2015/09/08/big-idea/

    @frank that can also happen when iTunes assigns different artists to different tracks - iTunes itself sees different albums, and then if you have the "organize library" option enabled it may move the files around.

    @Thomas I'm sorry about that, but we're pretty resource constrained... obviously the more votes this gets, the more likely it is we'll polish this feature off.

    @Jim no real progress, but an obvious place to put this now is under "album integrity" with the duplicates rule.

    @Errol - you can also search and edit the tags on the Tags page. Is that any use?

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    That's cool - note that differing album counts are often because different software counts albums in different ways depending not just on the content of any one tag, but also which tags exist (some may use COMPILATION, some may use the file paths, etc.).

    Yeah, I think a manual fallback is best, I suppose it depends on how many cases of this there are. If there are relatively few, then manual fallback, otherwise some additional replacement rule.

    They were asking for both - I was answering the special character case. We already support UTF-8. What do you mean by "OS prescribed symbols"? Are you saying there are characters from the non-Latin set that aren't permitted? If so, please send me a URL!

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    Yeah, that could be another idea: specify replacement character for file system sensitive characters.

    The list of disallowed characters in bliss is the one here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/windows/desktop/aa365247(v=vs.85).aspx

    But I think this idea is about expanding this to cover other characters?

    In some cases, this could be default behaviour. Although in use cases where, say, you have one large untagged folder with many unsorted files going in different directions, you wouldn't want this (and it might not even be possible - which of the many folders would you move to?)

    Understood. Although, we could potentially make it default behaviour to simple move untagged files as we currently move non-music files like artwork. This would keep the files together.

    If you see "Unknown" this means bliss was unable to assess the compliance of the album given your rules. This is normally some sort of bug - please email us at support@blisshq.com and include a debug archive ("Help" > "Download debug archive") and which album is affected (or a few of them if many).

    Just a note, in an upcoming release we're adding more feedback to the fix-all activity to show how far the list of fixed items bliss has got.

    AdminDan Gravell (Founder and programmer, bliss) commented  · 

    Something like this would be good.

    Note though that a simple % indicator is hard because bliss works by immediately scanning what folders have been found, and also rescans changing folders. As a result, we don't know when the end will come.

    We could change this to perform a scan, then only work on the results of the scan.
