*Mismatches and white-screens are being solved via PMs (white screen issue tracked as https://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=15255 )
*Column browser issues tracked as https://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=15265

BTW: Don't hesitate to open new thread(s) next time, this one is unnecessary long and e.g. the column browser issue isn't much GPM related.
It is not providing an easy survey when all is under this giant thread.

Happy New Year all...

New laptop, New install of MM5 and a first chance to really test GPM integration. I was able to sync with my existing library and it has done a very very good job of matching with my MM library. Only 1 file I can find that has been matched to Google's own library.

First thing I don't understand is how I correct them. Barry has talked about it before I know.

Secondly, when it tried to sync with the GPM playlists, it barfed! I have sent logs a couple of times, from earlier this evening, so hopefully you'll get some info.

I also captured the following:

Cheers,

I guess that you meant "Only 1 file I can find that has NOT been matched to Google's own library. :)

The best way to detect unmatched tracks is like this ... setup setup the column browser EntireLibrary>AllTracks in List mode ... have column 1 of the Column Browser set to Source ... eg. https://www.dropbox.com/s/lrjieespyt28c ... s.png?dl=0

The filter criteria shown by the red arrow (in the image above) filters to show just MM tracks which were not matched to GPM library tracks.

Fix by either:
  • Find the track in both MM5 and the GPM client ... compare their track property pages ... https://www.dropbox.com/s/owfcvjy472cha ... s.png?dl=0 ... it can one of many things ... you can see that those two tracks have capitalisation differences in the track name ... that is NOT the reason ... MM5 can handle that ok, and trailing blanks, and other small differences ... in the case illustrated, if you look at the GPM list on the left, you can see that the tracks are duplicated in my GPM library, so MM5 has successfully matched one copy, and the other remains unmatched
  • FIX by retagging in either GPM or MM ... or in this case by deleting the track duplicates from the GPM library ... and then rerun the sync
  • or fix by deleting the album from the GPM library, and use MM to upload a replacement copy to your GPM library
  • if you can't see the reason for the mismatch you could post a side by side image here

He hasn't confirmed yet, but I think Lukek broke sync in MM->GPM direction in the latest release. ... it did work before.

I don't know much about Google Play Music, but am I correct in saying that it only supports lossy formats?

AFAIK it transcodes anything that you upload to 320kps .mp3

So not the best as your only offsite backup for any lossless files. But (last time I looked):

* they will store, and allow you to stream from, up 50,000 of your own tracks at no charge ... so you stream from, or sync to your device, any tracks from your collection, at any location
* they also have family subscriptions at reasonable rate ... up to five individuals ... they have 30+ million music tracks, and which seems to cover a lot of bases
* a subscription also includes YouTube Red, which allows background listening, and you can also download videos, and GPM tracks, for offline use ... each person can fill up to 5 mobile devices each
* I have read the any track which you upload that is less than 320kps, gets replaced with a shiny new one at 320kps, provided that they have it amongst their 30+ million tracks

* and last, but not least ... the big one ... drum roll ... it is nicely integrated into MM5 ... the native GPM client s/w is basic, and horrible

Thanks for clearing that up, Barry.
I'm not sure how well it will go down with us lossless freaks and lossless HD freaks, but maybe it will come in handy for some. :)
