Re: Contributing Artist Search Feature?

If you want the Artist field to have only the principal artist for the track, say Erroll Garner (I'm listening to his newly released Nightconcert), you can add the other artists (say Eddie Calhoun and Kelly Martin), in the Involved People field which is on the Details tab of Properties - use semi-co...

Re: Combining mp3 and FLAC files in one album

You can probably guess why I thought that might be the solution. And it was no trouble. Thank you yarguy. You have helped me find the solution which is that my eyesight is failing. The Album name does differ between the MP3s and the Flacs the latter having no less than three ts in Manhattan. That wa...

Re: Combining mp3 and FLAC files in one album

How did you check it in MM? MM has a useful way of seeing if they truly are identical. Highlight all the tracks that should be in the album (both MP3 and FLAC). Right-click and go to Properties. If the Album is not the same then there will be a blank in the Album field and the same with the Album Ar...

Re: More tag fields for listeners of classical music [#14963]

But using Grouping does not provide the same usefulness as Linked Tracks. It is very nice to be able to click one track to get a whole work to play. If you don't want to provide something like that in MM5, fine; I'll just continue to use MM4 since it works just fine anyway. Another lost sale.

Re: Request: More tag fields for listeners of classical music

About the grouping field. MM4 has a very useful, easy to use, never fails (for me anyway) extension called Linked Tracks. Instead of looking at what iTunes did for this, why not look at what an MM add-on developer did. Send the first track to Now Playing and then all the linked tracks (the other tra...

Re: Wrong track title and time in player

I paid a little more attention to this this morning and here is what I found. 1) If the MM5 player is stopped at the end of a track (using stop after current) when there are tracks remaining in now playing, when the next track is started, the correct title and time are displayed. 2) The previous tit...

Wrong track title and time in player

Using 2113, but this has happened before. In the player control section at the bottom of the screen, the title and time of the previous track are shown instead of the title and time of the currently playing track (using Monkey Groove skin, but I doubt that matters). This leads to some interesting an...

Re: A couple of MM4 features I miss in MM5

I think it is a bug only in the Artwork only layout; at least that is all that is fixed in 2111. In Basic and Advanced, the image needs to be washed out or the text would not show well (or at all) in front of images of dark covers. I'd still like to be able to decide what fields to show in side-by-s...

2111 or 2110

The link to the MM5 file in Rusty's post about 2111 Alpha seems to be to 2110 Alpha, as that is what the name of the file is and what is returned in Help -> About after installation. In any case, the problem 2111 is said to be a solution to, washed out image in Art & Details, isn't solved; the image...

Re: A couple of MM4 features I miss in MM5

For me at leats, the art image is behind the white haze in Advanced. Not so in side-by-side. And I noticed that the user can control font size in Advanced, but not in Side-by-side.

Re: A couple of MM4 features I miss in MM5

You are riught that I meant type. But while you can edit what fields appear in Advanced, that selection only appears in ther Advanced setting. I want it in Side-by-side, too.

A couple of MM4 features I miss in MM5

I have been using MM5 2110 regularly for a week and find that it is working fine for how I use a music player, but there are a couple of featrures that are in MM4 but not in MM5 that would make it even better. In MM4 users can choose what fields are displayed in the Art & Details display and this ch...

A fairly trivial complaint

I'm liking 2110 more and more except for one small problem. The size of the font in the music player at the bottom of the screen is so small it is almost unreadable, especially against a coloured background. I have tried all five skins. In Material Design the Artist + Track Title are in a slightly l...

Re: New genre

Easy. Just type it in once and it will then be on the drop down list.
