Re: Slow adding files

The theme, yeah, as you noted, the orange is a shock to the system. I know I miss my default MM4 themes, but I also do not want the same exact theme as MM4 in case I run them side by side. As an aside, it did seem like when I did the manual add folders in Monitor files in MM4 recently and ran it fo...

Re: Slow adding files

Suggest that you download and run the DbgView app, as advised in point 3.b here . You only need to run it for a couple of minutes, and then save the file to Dropbox or something, and then PM a download link to Ludek , one of the MM5 Developers. He will need that file to diagnose what is slowing down...

Re: Slow adding files

I finally got all my files moved to their network drives and decided to see how MM5 would do importing/adding the files. At this point, nearly 12 hours in, I am about 277k out of 690k files. I am guessing at this rate, they should be done in about 36 hours. That in, and among itself, would not be b...

Re: 2220 - confused re Track Properties Save button in Online tabs

Thanks, it was bug, it should allow only filling path (e.g. by searching using YT button). Will be fixed in the release 2222. If that is all it is for, do you think it would be be better to have a simple dbox just for that purpose, rather than showing the whole Track File Properties suite of panels...

Re: MM5 Keeps Generating Thumbnails For Video Files

In the meantime, have you tried to see if the options at Tools|Library|MetadataLookup also affect art download for video files?

2220 - GPM sync is effectively broken

The duration of the initial sync of a GPM library (only include matching content, and do not download track contents) has blown out to where it it is not currently fit for use. It seems to be taking approx 1/3 seconds per track ... so what was a 9 minute job is now 5+ hours. Once I noticed this, I t...

2220 - Location node has lost a MM4 capability

There is something missing re View flexibility in MM5 Locations sub-node. In MM4 I used to be able achieve a nice cover-flow like display like this , using the Show Art view mode. ie. a grid of album covers for the location, sequenced by AlbumArtist>Album ... I often use a display like this, to brow...

Re: A picture of the application window in help

Brand new. Can't even figure out the names of the parts of the window. Somehow lost the "Show Browser Column" and could not even figure out how to ask what I lost! Gave up looking in help after an hour, and luckily after another hour of clicking every menu and icon, I turned it back on and a tool t...

2220 - confused re Track Properties Save button in Online tabs

I am looking at the detail panel for an album, ie. the one with the MyLibrary|Online toggle. If I toggle to the Online view, and then open the File Properties dbox for a track, I can make tag changes, and Save those changes. What is that for? ... where do they get saved, and for what purpose? It app...

Publishers sub-node has no Grid view, nor MyLibrary|Online pages

There is no Grid view for the Publishers sub-node. This means that we cannot get to a detail page for a Publisher, like ie. like we can for Artist, Album, Composer. So no 'MyLibrary|Online" pages for the Publisher. ... Seems a pity, and a needless inconsistency. Data is available ... ie Discogs has ...

Re: 2220 - Album Artist showing Artist instead incorrectly

Updated to 2220 today and it seems Album Artist field in Music collection view is picking up the Artist field instead. I see this also. I went back to 2219, and it seemed to be happening there also. The AlbumArtist node is now just replicating the contents of the Artist node. Also a couple of weird...

2219 - MM5 access to Dropbox ... why ask for access to everything?

MM5 asks for, and gets full access to all of the user's Dropbox files and folders. Is this necessary? Is it it wise? Alternatively Dropbox allows apps to request just "app folder" permissions, which would restrict your access to only a MediaMonkey folder, in the user's App folder. Wouldn't this suit...

Re: 2203 - web location config browsing incorrect location?

I guess that the [Browse] button should not be there at all. As MM always sync to the root of the target location + the configured path ('MM_Music' in your case).' So we should probably just hide the browse button to prevent from this confusion. This suggestion is tracked? .... Hasn't been fixed yet.
