Been a while, i'm busy lately but I have not forgotten...

Thanks for your response!

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.


Thanks! I backup all my data daily and the MM.DB gets extra care. :)

Offtopic: but is the data from Inherit Child Playlists also stored in the database? I assume so, just want to make sure.

There is the new 3.4.2 update with fixed that bug.


Thanks, will have to check that out. I seem to have 3.4.1

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.

This is a problem with the program itself and I cannot do anything about it.


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?

Onweerwolf wrote:4. could you explain the difference between these two:

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.


Okay, but doesn't playstats mean playcount and play dates, so isn't it exactly the same?

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.

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.
.


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.

Yes, it is.

It is not happening to me. If you could reproduce the problem, please report.

Onweerwolf wrote:Okay, but doesn't playstats mean playcount and play dates, so isn't it exactly the same?

No, it is not the same:
1. Play count and play dates are updated for different files for those two options;
2. The occasion when they are updated are different for those two options.

Please read the Usage section of the first post of this thread, it has a description about those two options.

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.

If you have two identical groups of duplicates in two folders and their sub-folders, you could use the mentioned dialog box with the Folders option to create links for all tracks from that group. It works recursively, no matter how many level of sub-folders they have, as long as you have identical folder structure in both groups. However, that command is mostly applicable if you have many identical tracks in two different formats (e.g. you have the same album in MP3 and FLAC).

How to replace lots of track duplicates based on acoustid automatically by asx links?

I attached an acoustid to all tracks of my library in custom field #1.

I regard tracks as duplicates when they have the same acoustid. As there are lots of duplicates in different compilations etc. I would like to replace all but the one with highest bit rate by asx links. Is there an option in track redirection to use the acoustid (instead of title and artist) to find the duplicates in track redirection?

If there is not, can I use "advanced duplicate find & fix" together with "create keep/ delete suggestion nodes" to find all acoustid duplicates and pass the result somehow (?) to track redirection to replace the duplicates with asx links?

Kind regards

Hi I'm new to this forum and I have a question for the "Track Redirection" Addon

I want to reduce the size of my library by replacing duplicates file with asx links.
I created an acoustid for all tracks and stored in field custom1. I consider files to be duplicate if they have identical acoustids and are about the same length (+- 5 seconds). As I understand "Track Redirection" considers files as duplicates when they have the same title and artist.

Is there a special trick to change this to use my criteria: the acoustid (and maybe the length)? It would be very helpful if I could replace lots of duplicates by asx links!

Kind regards

Sorry, there is no such trick. The files need to have the same Artist and Title or the same filename and similar structure of folders to be considered as duplicates.

Thank you for the fast response!

With "advanced duplicate find & fix" and "create keep/ delete suggestion nodes" I can find all acoustid duplicates and/ or only those I want to replace with asx links. Is there a trick to pass this result as an input to "track redirections" to solve my problem?

Kind regards

Actually, you could create redirection for any track, even if it has different Artist/Title or filename from the master track, but you could do it only manually one at once:
- select the master track in the main filelist (e.g. the one with the highest bitrate);
- open the Create Redirections for Specified Tracks dialog box;
- select the Track from specified Album radio button;
- choose the linked (redirected) track in the File Path text box.

Thank you again for your fast and detailed answer!

Unfortunaly I have too many duplicates to do it manually one by one.

Kind regards
