Messages - cardiacanesthesia

please do keep working on more functionality of this plugin
Dr subodh

Trasdahl: could it be modified to show the stats of the current filter instead of whole library
like if i search pop from search menu or select pop from a HB and the right sided context change to show the top/favorite artists of that particular selection...
thanks everyone
just that my plugin never showed up in any context pane
do i add it to the layout file first?
dr subodh
i guess this discussion is way beyond my capabilities
but anyways , its good if something new and interesting comes out of it
and laite, laitePLAY din't work on my computer, please help with that too...
thanks Quentin
you have been one of the most responsive developers online
will read the basics of perl
any suggestions as to where to start will be gratefully welcomed.
and then will ask you how to make a plugin
thanks again
please keep the good good work going
dr subodh
i have started reading the layout documentation and am planning to make one myself with above features
can you or some of the senior members help me with the syntax ?
i read the document below and started reading perl also
our create filter dialog box allows only to make filters with top x no of songs but doesn't allow to create filters for top 5 genre played or so..
which files should i look to edit these settings? or they are meant to be edited and saved in a layout file only?
I want a HB to contain top 10 artists from the selected filter or from the total songs
and similar boxes with top x songs from the selected genre and so far.
Please help
i am not asking to be spoonfed and i am ready to go the hard way learning to program myself

that worked
Below is the description of statistics page of helium
Using the Database Statistics

When you are on the Music Browser tab you can show the Database Statistics :

   This page shows the following information:

    The 5 most played music tracks. In each entry, clicking the track name will start that track playing and clicking the artist name will display the Artist page.

    The 5 most recent albums added to the database with some basic details such as: when added, number of tracks and album length. In each entry, clicking the album name will display the Album page.
    General Statistics that shows the number of tracks, artists, albums, genres and publishers in the database.

    Favourite Genres shows the 5 highest rated genres, at least three tracks in each genre has to be rated for the genre to appear in this list.

    Favourite Artists shows the 5 highest rated artists, at least three tracks from each artist has to be rated for the artist to appear in this list.

    The 5 top genres in the database and how many music tracks are in each genre. In each entry, clicking the genre name will display the Genre page.

    The 5 top artists showing how many tracks you have from each artist. In each entry, clicking the artist name will display the Artist page.

Questions / puddletag
September 18, 2011, 12:57:40
hi ,
i downloaded puddletag and did some bulk changing to my music tags
i rescanned my library after that and it didn't reflect the changes
but playing the particular songs showed them according to the new tag while those unplayed remained like before
what am i missing?
dr subodh
the right sided statistics in the above image we regularly use in our mosaic mode, and i just checked that mosaic can be changed on play counts also....
so a similar kind of thing can be arranged in a layout with more interesting approaches, may be images or plain number of times played and so on
Hi ,
once upon a time when i used windoze there was a 'not so common' media manager called Helium music manager
it had one very interesting feature that it had an html kind of page which showed your play history in a very interesting way
we are already recording all the playcounts and other things ,
probably we can make a layout or something with filters showing songs most commonly played over last week , or artists which have many stars but not heard recently and many more possibilities
i am not sure if i was able to explain it properly
may be the image will help

well , tried the first thing and it DID WORK.
thanks for that

secondly for now the idea of a pipe character is as good as selecting it like "any text field". i selected all options from the simple search box left click menu and then used pipe character for 2 different artists
this ROCKS

sorry for delayed response
i changed the default layouts for traytip and fullscreen.
it had some problems with shimmer traytip i guess due to GTK2
and after that things are running quite smoothly

and yes the problem of not adding is somehow related to layout, it does scan songs in my cardiacanesthesia layout and doesn't in the queue, library and context layout

so lastly, things are going pretty smooth
one more thing, while choosing filters for making a custom dynamic playlist, can you add a single selector for "any text field" in the metadata?
music in India is mostly contained to movie soundtracks, there are not many artist oriented private albums classified by genre and so on
one movie may host songs of 5 different genre sung by 4 different singers as solo and duets and written by another set of people
so it is very difficult to classify it with the usual music player categories.
so if i want to search for all tracks in which mr X is involved as a lyricist or composer or singer , i have to add three lines in filter
and if the search involves two more persons it becomes 9 different lines
had it been "any text field" contains "mr x" it would have been very easy to find.

sorry for long post
thanks for the help

No , I am using Gnome 3 with unity
i somehow managed to add the songs by changing layouts . i know it is not possible that way but somehow in a particular layout when i rescanned folders , it just worked
but now a new problem
sometimes the song starts playback, and by clicking next song button, the player just exits
and lastly it gave this error
Playing error : Failed to parse stream at /usr/bin/../share/gmusicbrowser/ line 135
have i not installed proper gstreamer codecs?
Questions / Doesn't add new songs [SOLVED]

i changed my Distro to oneiric beta
installed gmb latest from andreas' repo
home folder is a different partition than root
and music is a different partition NTFS
left the .config and gmbrc  etc as such
but now, it is reading all the tags and playing songs nicely, but doesn't add a new folder when added
i checked add/ scan new folders on startup , but the newly added folders don't show up
i even tried to use a backup gmbrc but same problem persists
anything i did wrong?

the output for running gmusicbrowser in terminal is
GStreamer::Interfaces perl module not found -> visuals not available
