Re: Google sync - how do you fix bad uploads?

To the original subject matter of fixing a bad upload -- with the options set as described above, I deleted an uploaded track on GPM, then did a permanent delete on GPM, and did a sync. It correctly and quickly found that and uploaded. So my original concern seems to have been a bad setting of optio...

Re: MM5 2188 GPM Upload loses tags (GPM is replacing the track?)

So I deleted this, then deleted it permanently from GPM, and sync'd again. It got the same result, including changing fields like date. I get that you have a bug in artwork (maybe), but the fact it is changing these other fields -- is that really a case that MM5 is uploading wrong, or is GPM behind ...

Re: Google sync - how do you fix bad uploads?

So very quickly (or it seemed so), the sync finished, and now shows 3292 songs in GPM itself. That's the good news. When I click on the remote All Tracks, it finds 3291, and still shows 581 with just the local storage symbol. If I go to the Music, All Tracks it shows 582 files with just the local st...

Re: Google sync - how do you fix bad uploads?

So continuing on the subject of how one reconciles all the various information, after the initial sync, GPM says I have 2819 songs (of what should be 3292). Under the device, remote, clicking on the All Tracks calls up 2720 of which 1958 appear with just the local storage icon, and 782 appear with t...

Re: MM5 2188 Displays transparent popup window

When the current sync finished, I got a window that quite nicely summarized the upload errors. At least I assume if there was more than one all would appear here. So in retrospect, I think the popup window is pointless, as well as transparent. https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-B8v5tgt/0/c94c67b0/O...

MM5 2188 Displays transparent popup window

I left MM5 uploading to GPM, and indeed it still is (on 2402 of 2528 so it has been going quite a while). I checked back with it, and it has a modal window displayed that is transparent. I can move the window around, but it stays transparent. I have seen this before and just dismissed them (I am not...

MM5 2188 GPM Upload loses tags (GPM is replacing the track?)

I am doing a clean test -- starting with am empty GPM and uploading from MM5. While it is not yet done (it crashed once, so I restarted), I see what appears to be a metadata problem. LOTS Of the songs uploaded do not show tags on GPM for cover art (art is only thing I looked at so far as it's easy t...

Re: Google sync - how do you fix bad uploads?

@Ludek, I like where you and @Barry4679 are heading on the sync question. I want to also keep the thread going on synchronization by adding notes from yesterday's attempt at starting over. I deleted the GPM device, deleted all music from GPM itself, and set it up to sync 3292 songs. The program died...

Re: Sync to Google Play Music now crashes (2188)

@Ludek, thanks. It ran overnight and crashed at some point, different sort of crash (not assertion failed). I am sending the logs right now from that crash. It's B1A25CA sent about the time of this posting. It looks like it died after 977 songs uploaded (per GPM itself) of the 3292 tracks I have. Wh...

Re: Sync to Google Play Music now crashes (2188)

Postscript: Started it again, checked the options to make sure they were there but did not change anything, and hit Sync. It is running now, at 46 of 3292. I'll see what it shows in the morning; I only have 10mbs up, so it takes a while.

Re: Sync to Google Play Music now crashes (2188)

OK, so I did this again as follows: - Deleted GPM from MM5 - Deleted all playlists from GPM - Deleted all music tracks from GPM - Restarted MM5 - Added GPM - Checked the boxes under remote content to "Scan GPM content" and "only include content that matches", left unchecked the Download GPM, and un-...

Re: Google sync - how do you fix bad uploads?

@Barry4679, thank you very much. I learned a lot about MM5 just reading this (maybe time to look for documentation generally, I've just been figuring it out as I go along). Your notes were perfect. I did not have anything at GPM when I started, so mine were all either both, or just the disk symbol (...

Re: Google sync - how do you fix bad uploads?

Just getting back to this and need to review what @Barry4679 laid out, but as to @Ludek's thoughts, here is what startled me: If it's this: Google seem to minimise the data traffic cost of the upload, by finger printing your tracks, and then avoiding the upload of any tracks which they already have ...

Re: Sync to Google Play Music now crashes (2188)

@Ludek -- this didn't occur to me until I read your note, but.... how would the program know my email address? I can't remember it ever asking? I looked in the location mentioned and found nothing (I found the folder but no files), which I interpreted to mean it had sent them? Anyway, I've made enou...

Re: Google sync - how do you fix bad uploads?

Wow.... I'm out of town most of today, but will review in depth when I get back.

But the idea that MM5 is altering the tags I meticulously have been applying based on what Google things should be there is frightening. That's a REALLY DUMB default if true.
