Re: Album art search breaking google search

Thanks, but is that 10k number based on knowing what Google's thresholds are, or just supposition? The coincidence is suspicious. Then again, it's not clear what Google means when they say "your network." If they mean all of Comcast (my isp), or a particular branch thereof, then maybe what I observe...

Album art search breaking google search

I believe that automatic album art retrieval may have angered the Google Gods. I noticed yesterday that album art searches were taking forever and never completing. Today, when attempting a Google search from a Windows PC, Google is requiring captchas because: ""Unusual traffic from your computer ne...

Re: Album art dowload always fails; used to work [#16878]

Long wait time is now fixed in build 935. Thanks! In fact, it now seems faster than it ever was based on the first 3 or 4 I tried.

Re: Album art dowload always fails; used to work [#16878]

Thanks. Sometimes it keeps running without success the entire length of the track -- I've observed 3 minutes. Another time, when track was paused, something like 15 minutes. I also noticed another problem. At some point, there was some kind of crash, and mma could not play any track at all. The inde...

Re: Album art dowload always fails; used to work

Fixed as of build 933 for me! (beta)

However, the amount of time it now takes to find the album art is at least double of what it used to be previously

Re: Album art dowload always fails; used to work

@Peke: I am not sure the issue you observed is the same as the issue I am having. Let me be more precise... Behavior when it was working "correctly": 1. Click (touch) a track without album art, either from track list or other list. 2. Track begins to play. 3. Click player subscreen to reach full tra...

Re: Album art dowload always fails; used to work

Thanks. I emphasize that on my phone, it used to work just fine, but now always fails. Because my collection is a giant mess where album info is often missing or even wrong or bogus, I never know whether it should be able to find album art or not, so it's hard to say "aha for this track it should ha...

Re: Album art dowload always fails; used to work

I installed a sniffer on my phone (for non-encrypted traffic only) and it did not show any attempt from mma to access the outside world to download album art. Is it possible that for some reason it is being blocked from even accessing network for that, or is it that the requests are encrytped (say S...

Re: [feature request] group by year icon on home screen

Ok, thanks.

I saw some other posts that 2.0 will have a lot of improvements, seemingly related to this. Of course, I am hoping to live long enough to see 2.0 released.

Re: [feature request] group by year icon on home screen

No, I don't exactly mean that, at least as far as I can understand what you mean. Right now, mma home screen shows a number of tiles (i.e. icons) which can be customized by the user, such as 'artist', 'tracks', 'genre', etc. What I am saying is that it would be useful to me, and presumably to other ...

[feature request] group by year icon on home screen

It would be nice if 'years' were one of the options for the mma home screen. That would be more useful to me than for example 'genre.'

Album art dowload always fails; used to work [#16878]

Today MMA fails every time it looks for album art. In the past, this has succeeded very frequently. (I have a fairly newly made library; 99% of the tracks have not yet been played; none of them had album art to start with.) I have 'lookup missing album art' set in the options. Looking up missing lyr...

Re: What happens if there is a filename collision on the device during sync?

Well, it seems that this has been a colossal waste of time. Sorry. MMA sync is now so far behaving as expected, so nothing to look into any more. Here is what I did: * Reformatted the SD card, thus clobbering everything. * Uninstalled MMA * Deleted all MMA files from the device as mentioned in kb pa...

Re: What happens if there is a filename collision on the device during sync?

Interim report. I did a dry run before tackling setting up debug logging. Since I failed to remember that you said "Setup a sync with just those five files and also their duplicate filename versions ", I created a playlist with only the offending tracks, but of course the duplicates were already on ...
