Questions / Re: How to play all files in a folder/directory just once?
« Last post by manoel on June 28, 2017, 23:23:00 »
I got the same problem. Is there a way to configure that music must stop when an album ends?? It's so basic and so annoying... I've searched around the buttons and settings but still haven't found how to do it!

Is there anybody here who can help? Thanks in advance.
Questions / replaygain - do not write tags on files
« Last post by zal1en on June 15, 2017, 20:20:03 »

I just started using gmb. So far so good :)

One question: I want to use the replaygain feature but I don't want the files (tags) to get updated cause this causes problem with seeded files.

Is there an option to store all the info only in gmb's database?
I've ticked in settings->Tags
Do not create an id3v1 tag in mp3 files
Do no write the tags

but I believe it still updates the tags on the file and I don't want that.

thanks in advance
Questions / Is it possible to change the genre separator?
« Last post by LondonJohnny on May 31, 2017, 21:15:40 »
Multiple genres are essential, also on the phone. Alas, nothing as good as gmusicbrowser exists for Android.

I've found to option that support multi genres: MusicMonkey and foobar2000. Only the later reads gmusicbrowser genres correcly, but I would like to give the former a try.

Seemingly, MusicMonkey uses semicolon ; as a genre delimiter, whereas gmusicbrowser uses slash /. The latter I gather from reading off the meta-data.

Is it possible to change the output written by gmusicbrowser for genre separators?

(If other suggestion for solution exists, then I'm oopen for that, too. I'm working on a separate collection of test files -- I would not mess with my real collection).

Kind regards,

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?
