    I'll try and get Grant to comment, but licence information is held encrypted on the home folder for the user running bliss. If this could be mapped to the Docker host this could work across restarts.

    The same thing happens for me, but if you refresh the page you should see the count has increased.

    Thanks, currently all file movements are relative to the root music folder path. But what you're suggesting is valid (of course, in the case where music files are in different folders, this won't help bring them back together).

    I clarified the title to describe the feature more generally.

    I merged the following idea from Bo Herrmannsen into this one:

    ---

    again not sure if it has been suggested but could be nice to have rules depending on what type of album i have....

    All my artist albums have the artist in album artist while my complications have the album artist field empty

    now for complications i want my folder structure: Album name/tracknumber. trackartist - tracktitle

    while an bryan adams album should be: Bryan Adams - XXXX /tracknumber. track title

    in itunes everything is set to complication so that it sorts the stuff right
    ---

    Thanks for that. I actually split the auto tagging out into a separate idea: http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/2290707-auto-tag-compilations . I hope this is ok.

    Yep, thanks for that.

    I'm actually thinking your case could work with http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/788647-the-ability-to-monitor-more-than-one-location-on-a and the ability to define different rule sets for different directories.

    Sure, I'll add that to the list.

    Yeah - we could also add support for a separate pattern for compilations which seems to be common for a lot of people.

    @Yves That's an interesting development of "duplicates" because it implies some level of duplication is permitted.

    Yeah - that's one way. In extreme cases (I always think in extreme cases ;-) ) there are also artists who, canonically, capitalise their names in weird ways that a regex cannot predict. Therefor some form on online lookup would be required.

    It's always a balance between canonically-correct and what-the-listener-wants...

    Nice - this needs to work alongside the capitalisation rules in some way.

    @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.

    @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.

    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?

    Ok, thanks for the explanation.

    This sounds like a mixture of different things.

    If we had rulesets (https://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2017/08/01/ruleset-selecta/) - these are implemented for ignoring rules but the capability hasn't been made more general yet - you could have a rule for Christmas music (e.g. GENRE="Christmas") which had a different file path rule: "OFFLINE MUSIC/.../..."

    In addition we would need a way of poking iTunes: https://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/1449569-auto-update-itunes-when-bliss-has-changed-an-album

    This is going to partly depend what you mean by "in and out of my library".

    Does this mean it just doesn't appear in iTunes?

    Or does it mean the files get relocated to a different folder?

    So it depends on what music software (and hardware) you use.

    I have spoken to the developer of Daphile before, but it's really down to him opening up the platform...

    In theory it should work without a huge amount of work.

    > tag every album that has the compilation tag with the same Various Artists title in the Album Artist tag.

    This has been completed as part of: https://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/2739754-automatically-complete-album-artist

    As implied by my comment:

    > Inferring a COMPILATION tag if the artists are different

    We could use the new local album tag sourcing as a way of doing the first part.

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

    I just added correctness checking for compilation. This works in a different way to other correctness checking, in that if the setting is absent, we always look at linked releases anyway. If the linked releases say that this is definitely a compilation, a fix is suggested to change it so.

    This is a different solution to that laid out above, which is more of a "derived tag" solution, so I'll keep this open as it might have been that which people have voted for.

    Just a personal note that won't mean much to anyone else - this becomes a lot easier with recent work to deduce ALBUM ARTIST from existing tags. See LocalAlbumTagSourceHeuristics...

    Sorry - what do you mean by "Bliss uses tags that I can't see in other tag editors"?

    Something that just came to mind is that, once parsed, the information from file paths could be used to perform lookups for more data for that album. Just wanted to record that thought!

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

    I'm beginning to think this would be best implemented on the Untagged page, so that albums go through a staging process of only being allowed onto the "Albums" page once they are tagged.

    The disadvantage of this is that it forces you to have tags, but is that really a problem?

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

    I just realised that in a more general sense this could be used in bliss to merely identify music to the various rules, e.g. the cover art rule could use it for album and artist name information, and the art could be saved to file or embedded.

    Many other rules though would make no sense to use this with, e.g. file organisation. Therefore the applicability is limited.

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

    Thanks for this. Overall, I'd prefer to go with the acoustic fingerprinting approach to tagging untagged files first. See http://ideas.blisshq.com/forums/21939-bliss/suggestions/701338-automatic-song-identification-and-tagging-of-untag

    If that doesn't cover everything, this approach to tagging is till valid.

    That's odd - if anything I tend to get comments that we over group!

    Can you click "Help" then "Download debug archive" and send it to us at support@blisshq.com with some example album names?

    The only thing I'd add is that because bliss is written for a different purpose than Plex et al (it's an organiser rather than a player) sometimes the way we present your library has to be a bit different. It might not be the case here, but in some cases Plex might go to lengths to group an album to make it easier to play, but bliss might want to show the album is split, to make it more obvious to re-organise. Hope that makes sense.

    I guess an ability to "skin" the interface could be something... if you know CSS you can probably do something yourself with a browser plugin to override the CSS.

    Nice idea. Some people have large folders of assorted files and may only want to tag a subset of them.

    The untagged page *will* use external data. It uses fingerprinting to identify the music, and provide metadata. Assuming the fingerprints are found in the database of course!

    But the other issue - where existing tags aren't shown - is an issue. Co-incidentally I added this to the bug tracker the other day. I've linked this page with it so I can update this when we fix it.

    Yes - I think currently a custom tag might be shown, but all custom tags may be combined into one cell. E.g. a TXXX field.
