French / Problème mémorisation des listes
« Last post by philippe2812 on May 27, 2017, 14:12:23 »
Les titres que j'ajoute à une liste de lecture ne sont pas sauvegardés d'une session sur l'autre. Auriez-vous une explication à cela ?

You probably emptied or deleted the folder specified as your library in configuration.

Thanks very much for the help, guys, and thank you Butty for the workaround (and details).
Seems to work great on Ubuntu 16.04 :)

Great! Where is the option? I can't find it.
Suggestions / Shuffle: distributed random
« Last post by publicradio on May 08, 2017, 19:28:53 »
Would it be possible to shuffle a playlist in a distributed way? Meaning, it would try to play every artist once before it played any artist again. So let's say you had a bunch of artists with one song each, and one artist with 8 songs. The playlist would try to play 8 different artists before it played the one with 8 songs, so the recurrence would be distributed across the playlist.

The idea is that you're always getting variety, like on the radio where they (hopefully) wouldn't play the same artist twice in a row, or twice within a 20 minute period, et cetera.
Before using gmusicbrowser, I was using Clementine, which uses SQLite. I wrote a few queries that would help me create playlists based on length and number of tracks. So I can have a playlist of all albums with 10 or more songs on them, 'EPs' (5-7 tracks), 'Singles' (1-2 tracks), and I also have lists of albums that are over an hour, under 45 minutes, et cetera.

When clementine scans your library, it keeps the track lengths in the db. I assume gmusicbrowser does as well, because it can quickly calculate the total runtime. What do you think about adding 'album length' and 'tracks per album' as filter criteria?

I know sometimes the track number field is written as 4/12, where '12' is the total number of tracks. If this were in use, it would be possible to filter complete/incomplete albums.
Suggestions / Multiple album tags
« Last post by publicradio on May 08, 2017, 19:26:32 »
I see that gmusicbrowser allows multiple genre tags. Is it possible to also have multiple album tags? I have some songs that appear on an LP, and also a soundtrack or compilation. The recording is identical but I want the song to be in multiple albums when appropriate. Is this even feasible?
Questions / How do I disable the Equalizer? (And clean presets)
« Last post by krafty on May 04, 2017, 00:53:54 »
Thanks for this superior music player to all!
I have a question though...

I enabled Equalizer, and tested a few presets.
But I see no where in which I can disable it.

Any ideas?

Have you tried booting a LiveCD and install gmb and see if alsa shows up? (To rule out that something is messy with your current install.)
Questions / Creating tabs/filter panes from non-standard ID3 tags?
« Last post by pastic on April 26, 2017, 22:18:41 »
I am trying to find a way to implement sorting for large boxsets (that I for various reasons want to be able to access as a first group and then drill down to the album level). In foobar on Windows I managed to create rules that filtered according a custom-made tag "boxset" which held the title of the boxset; all files that had that tag not empty would display in a pane, and from there I could drill down into any collection and choose albums.

But I find that GMB (1.1.15) does not seem to bother with using my tags. I have created custom fields with various versions of my boxset tag, but after reboot I cannot use any of them for creating a tab in the Library module (middle pane). They simply don't show up in the right-click menu of "+ Add tab". They do show up when I create colums in the lower half of the window, but they do not fetch the data from the tags, even though on advanced inspection the data is there.

The best I have achieved in getting the effect I want is putting the title of the Boxset in the Grouping tag, but that does not feel optimal.

Does anyone have tips on how to implement a tab with boxset titles (to be where the Grouping tab is in the screenshot)?
