Thanks for your response!
Thanks! I backup all my data daily and the MM.DB gets extra care.ZvezdanD wrote:The table with the redirections is stored in the MM database. There is a risk of losing them. When you reinstall MM it would keep the database, but there are always a risk that it could be damaged. It is highly recommended that you make a backup of your MM database on a regular basis, so when you get the database somehow corrupted or damaged you could take back the latest good one.Onweerwolf wrote:1. I was wondering where the redirections are stored. To put it another way; it's there a risk of losing them? For instance when I do a reinstall of MM or when I uninstall this script. I have 100's of tracks that I want to redirect and I would like to prevent losing the work that I'm gonna put into it.
Offtopic: but is the data from Inherit Child Playlists also stored in the database? I assume so, just want to make sure.
Thanks, will have to check that out. I seem to have 3.4.1There is the new 3.4.2 update with fixed that bug.Onweerwolf wrote:2. When I select either 'Replace with duplicate from album' or 'replace with linked track' from the dropdown menu I get this error:
Okay, but do you have any more info? It doesn't happen all the time, just sometimes. Maybe it's possible to pinpoint the cause(s) and see if they can be avoided?This is a problem with the program itself and I cannot do anything about it.Onweerwolf wrote:3. I use 'create redirection for specified tracks' to select a redirected track for a selected master. When I do so oftentimes the dialogue window will appear beneath MM's main window. Which means I have to doubleclick on the MM system tray icon to make the main window minimize and have the script dialogue appear. This is kinda annoying.
Okay, but doesn't playstats mean playcount and play dates, so isn't it exactly the same?The first one allows updating of the playstats of the master track when you play track(s) linked to it. The second one specify what you want to be synchronized when you use e.g. Synchronize Metadata of Redirected Tracks command.Onweerwolf wrote:4. could you explain the difference between these two:
That last command also takes a lot of time and provides a long list of songs that are not the ones that I want to link.I have planed to implement something like that in the future. In the meantime maybe you could try with the Create Redirections/Copy Metadata for Duplicates/Folders command which has different approach for creating redirections than Create Redirections for Specified Tracks.Onweerwolf wrote:5. A suggestion: It takes a while for the script to find tracks with the same artist & title. Oftentimes I actually know exactly which track I want a redirection for. Therefor it would be much faster if the script had an option to simply select master track, bring up the dialogue from 'create redirections for selected tracks' without the search and then select the track that i want the redirection for.
