I wholeheartedly support this idea !
I've been using https://github.com/Moonbase59/loudgain to calculate ReplayGain but I'd love to be able to do it from within Strawberry.
When searching for covers for my (many, obscure) compilations, I very often have much more success when searching for the compilation name alone, and not along with the artist name.
If I'm not the only one in that case, I'd love that cover search for compilation omits the artist name by default (though it could provide an option to add the artist name to the search with one click).
First of all, THANK YOU again for the long-requested (on Clementine, at least) ability to embed covers to tracks !
Over the years, I've accumulated many compilations (and/or sampler CDs that came along magazines), some of them totalling 80-100 tracks by various artists.
When defining a cover for (let's say) Track 1 by Artist A, I'd love that that cover would also be defined for Track 2 by Artist B, Track 3 by Artist C, etc. (and of course Track n by Artist A again).
That would save me hours of picking the right cover for each and every track, as some of them are pretty obscure and need hand-picking.
My music organisation scheme is
Artist/Album (yup, even for compilations)/Artist - Title.extension
Bandcamp has high-quality/size album covers (minimum 700×700 but more commonly 1000×1000 pixels), such as https://wicrecordings.bandcamp.com/album/katana-zero-original-soundtrack, which (I hope) could be easily scraped to find covers.
Hi there !
Reading through loudgain's documentation, I came across this remark : https://github.com/Moonbase59/loudgain#uppercase-or-lowercase-replaygain_-tags
"File bug reports for any player you use that doesn’t handle ReplayGain tags at all or in a case-sensitive manner!"
And this got me thinking : how does Strawberry handle Replaygain tags (for the concerned formats, namely mp3) ? Upper-case (as it should be) ? Lower case (as it's often encountered) ? Or case-insensitively ?
Hello @jonas !
I've started testing 0.7.2-197-g61ffb7d9 coming from 0.7.2, and so far so good.
More precisely :
Collection seems fine, so and does adding the Rating column. I think I had to add, remove, then add it again one time for it to work fine, but I may be mistaken.
I don't have any personal playlists so I cannot tell.
I have two "Jamais écouté" (= "Never listened") default playlists, but one has "Listening count >= 0" as criteria.
Where does "Most listened" playlist takes its data ? I'm pretty sure I reset my collection in the past (when trying to troubleshoot duplicates issue) but it still show tracks I like and often listen to, but not necessarily the most listened to.
Other default playlists look fine.
My only "Not rated" smart playlist works fine too.
Overall : awesome work, Jonas !
