Re: When making smart playlist can album/podcast be restricted to given media type

Yeah, sorry, didn't say it clearly. I don't mean 'media type' as in codec, I mean as in 'podcast' vs 'music' vs 'audiobook' - as selected in the 'search' box at the top of the autoplaylist settings dialog. Clearly MM has a concept of the difference between those things, as you can confine searches t...

When making smart playlist can album/podcast be restricted to given media type

If I want to create a smart playlist, using 'advanced' mode, and I pick "podcast equals..." I get a radio-button checklist of podcast titles to pick from...except it's not just podcast titles, it includes every title of every music album in there as well, even if I've already specified 'podcasts' in...

Re: Weird bug with smart playlists and date ranges [#17172]

As I say, it really isn't a big problem, but I'm puzzled what's so special about October - guessing it's something to do with being the first two-digit month? It's two issues, really - doesn't show anything if I do one for October, and if I do one for November it then wrongly includes October as wel...

Re: Weird bug with smart playlists and date ranges [#17172]

Well, I'm trying to follow the info on including screenshots, but it doesn't seem to be working right - image not appearing.

Weird bug with smart playlists and date ranges [#17172]

This is a hard bug to describe. I make smart playlists of podcasts based on their "Date" fields. One per month. So "November 2020 podcasts", for example. Uses the 'advanced' smart-playlist option, to set 'date between' 1/11/2020 and 1/12/2020, for example (with european date format). Once a year I r...

Re: database full of missing entries for podcast episodes

Possibly the issue is because of deleting episodes that are no longer available from the podcast server. But I don't want to risk deleting things in order to experiment to confirm that.

Re: database full of missing entries for podcast episodes

They were deleted from within MM itself. Yes, if I uncheck that button the missing links are no longer shown. If I do that though, it then doesn't list them as available to be downloaded again. Seems as if the null links are still in the database, but doing that suppresses displaying them. Which is ...

Re: database full of missing entries for podcast episodes

This is not really an issue for MM in particular, but I do wish there was a generally-agreed standard for exporting auto or smart playlists, as there is for normal playlists. Seems as if clearing out the database to start again would lose all the smart playlists (of which I have zillions).

database full of missing entries for podcast episodes

I think I've asked about this before, but I somehow managed to fix it, but the problem keeps coming back. If I delete unwanted (or corrupted) podcast episodes, quite frequently MM won't cleanly delete them, but instead replaces them with an entry with an "unknown" location. In the case of corrupted ...

Re: Can't get tagger to work

OK, for some reason it didn't have those values as the defaults (something else, with "US" in it, can't remember what it was now) I changed it to those values and now it (the musicbrainz tagger) is working. Thanks very much for your help.

Re: Can't get tagger to work

OK, seem to have the discogs tagging working now (I think was doing the 'authorisation' and pressing 'OK' in the wrong order before)

Re: Can't get tagger to work

Thanks. I don't know how to fill in the options for using FreeDB - what to put for server name, user name, user domain. If I leave the defaults it just says it can't find the cd in the database (for any cd I try)

Can't get tagger to work

I can't get the automatic lookup of cd tracks to work. I have it set under options to use MusicBrainz, but whenever I try to look up a CD it gives an error: There was an error while connecting to musicbrainz.org: HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found I also can't get the 'tagger' for already-ripped tracks to work....

Re: loads of broken links/unknown location in database

Correction - unselecting that option _doesn't_ make the ghost entries go away, they are still there. But for some reason there are far fewer of them than there were when I first posted about this, the great mass of them have mysteriously healed themselves somehow, over the last few months/MM updates...

Re: loads of broken links/unknown location in database

Thanks for replying more promptly than I did.


Though that link goes to a 'topic does not exist' page. Is it outdated?
