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

Well, there's more to this. I found that if I expand the left panel for GPM, it has an All Tracks, which apparently is supposed to be what is uploaded. The one track that I knew was uploaded incorrectly was not there, so I thought wow, this makes it easy to compare. I did a COPY from it, and a COPY ...

Google sync - how do you fix bad uploads? [#15849]

I managed to get 2188 to sync to google. Sort of. I have 3292 tracks in MM5, at least that's what it says I have. GPM, after a successful sync, said it had 3070. I did another sync, and it said 3080 (though MM5 said it was uploading 12 songs). I noticed some corrupted songs, e.g. that had 15 seconds...

Re: MM5 2188 Lyrics are downloaded and displayed, not tagged, should not

Check Options/Metadata lookup. Don't you have checked 'Look up missing lyrics' checkbox ? Well, yes. But that seems rather silly (for a non-gold user). It looks it up then discards it when you restart the program? But it's the implied link to the "Auto-Tag" section and manually invoked auto-tag fea...

MM5 2188 Lyrics are downloaded and displayed, not tagged, should not

I have been noticing something and finally realized it looks like a bug. I have a non-gold version that should not auto-tag. Right? Meaning unless I use the menu pick. I have the lyrics column displayed on the All Tracks display. Most tracks do not have lyrics yet as I have not downloaded them. Peri...

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

Well, I'm now baffled. I decided to try this again and see if I could see anything in the logs, and it is no longer crashing. I tried setting it up from scratch also. I hope the logs it sent just before the original post will yield some info. I did run into another problem... If it sync's a M4P file...

Sync to Google Play Music now crashes (2188)

I saw that the bug (15832) that kept me from doing google sync was fixed, so installed and gave it a go. I deleted my GPM device, deleted all the music on GPM (which I had uploaded manually with the music manager), and added the device, selected one album and one playlist and started uploading. It f...

Re: MM5 beta, Google Play Music, Sync, non-Gold, should it work?

Glad you found it, but just in the for what it is worth department, if the license issue relates to the 30 day (?) period when lame should work, I've only been using MM (or MM5) for a few days. Also, I just grabbed the alternate lame dll, and replaced it in the MM5 folder, restarted MM5, re-connecte...

Chromecast on separate subnet [#15834]

Is it possible to specify the IP address of chromecasts so they can be found on other subnets? With more and more home automation, some of us are segmenting our home networks. In my cast MM is running on a different subnet than Chromecast. Some tools (for example Home Assistant) lets you use an IP i...

Auto-Tag from Web - splitting albums

I'm struggling to understand how to use MM correctly to tag, but I see what appears to be a difference in 4 and 5 that is annoying. Or that I haven't figured out. The issue is that I have albums that are being split up by the process. Some of them were iTunes albums, and I wondered if perhaps Apple ...

Re: MM5 beta, Google Play Music, Sync, non-Gold, should it work?

Thanks, @Peke. My question on licensing related to it being a new feature, and it was not clear if the documentation on licensing (which appears to be V4 which didn't have this feature) was informative on whether it should work in V5. Anyway... I opened ticket #JQJ-314-63806. I also in experimenting...

Does silence mean no one is using it, or just that something about it is a dumb question?

Re: Move library (etc) with symlink?

Sounds simple enough. Is there any downside to using portable mode? (Maybe the reverse question is easier -- why used installed mode at all?)

[SOLVED] Move library (etc) with symlink?

I like having all related items grouped together on disk for backup and restore and visibility reasons. I've read how to move the library, but it leaves the ini files, etc. Is there any reason that the library and associated files can't be moved from \AppData\Roaming to another drive by just creatin...
