Got a whole lot of new ideas...

Post by MCSmarties »

Hi Kanski,

I've been playing around with your script for quite a while lately, which gave me a ton of ideas of things that would make it even better.

I hope I don't come across as never being satisfied! Just consider it feedback and suggestions on possible expansions... Here it comes:

- harmonize all the field names (the "Album" field is called <Name> for the album mask but "Album" for the Tracks mask)

- extract custom names for <Custom X> fields (like for example MagicNodes does)

- a search function would be really, really cool.
I got the idea from looking at a report script called "AquaII" for the movie cataloguing software Movie Collector.
You can download the script in the templates section, search for "AquaII (searchable) by DaveC"

- be able to use ALL fields for masks in both album and track view:
<custom> fields also for album view (currently not possible)
<original year> for track view would be great!

- ideally all fields (genre, year, custom...) could be clickable to find more of the same (open a page with all songs with the same property)

- a text-only (no album art), SORTABLE list of all tracks.
In other words, something similar to the output from the MM "Track List (HTML)" report, but where the user can specify which columns to use (with a mask)
and can click on the top of each column to SORT by this column (like excel spreadsheets).
Also, all entries should have HTML links to the corresponding pages (album, artist... etc.)

- in fact, for me the "album art view" is not very useful. I have about 1'500 albums, it doesn't make sense for me to try to find the cover in all these pages.
Maybe replace the "album art view" with the "list view" above?

- clicking on a song title (in any view) brings up a page that displays the (unsynchronized) song lyrics

Finally, since my suggestions would add a lot of data (you're going to kill me for this!)... reduce the size of database!
I have no idea if this is even possible, but maybe some pages can be generated on the fly while browsing the report?

Again, these are only ideas. I certainly don't expect them to be implemented as quickly as you did all the other things!
What do you think? Am I crazy? :D

PS: Are your script and Trixmoto's script now completely independant or do you guys have any plans to combine them again in the future?

MCSmarties, i'm surprised!

ok
- extract custom names for <Custom X> fields (like for example MagicNodes does)
ok
- a search function would be really, really cool.

not possible. In my web site I use web search.
- be able to use ALL fields for masks in both album and track view:
<custom> fields also for album view (currently not possible)
<original year> for track view would be great!
ok

may be.

Maybe replace the "album art view" with the "list view" above?
You have 1500albums * 10 tracks = 15'000tracks on one page. Very big page... SORTABLE not possible without on fly pages.
- clicking on a song title (in any view) brings up a page that displays the (unsynchronized) song lyrics
may be.

@MCSmarties - you can easily add a websearch feature by signing up to Google's AdSense. This allows you to add site search to your page, and possible earn some money whilst you're at it! :)

Also, our scripts are definitely independant. My script was originally designed as an local (offline) system for viewing your tracks, kanski has enhanced the script way beyond this.

@Kanski - getting the custom field values is very easy - don't go searching through the huge magic nodes source to find it!

Code: Select all

cus1 = SDB.IniFile.StringValue("CustomFields","Fld1Name")
cus2 = SDB.IniFile.StringValue("CustomFields","Fld2Name")
cus3 = SDB.IniFile.StringValue("CustomFields","Fld3Name")

Thanks for the answers, guys!

Actually, I am using kanski's script (so far) offline only.
I use it as a tool to double-check my tags (which is why I would like to see as many fields as possible supported)
and of course to show off my collection when somebody asks... :lol:
Don't have a webpage and don't have the time to set one up...

I understand your concerns about a huge track list page for online use. Didn't think of that - again, I'm "offline-only"!

I guess the Google Adsense only works in an online environment?

Yeah, Google Adsense is for online only as it needs to connect to Google.

Howsit Kanski

Great script, ive been thinking of an extra feautre I would appreciate for a while now. I have lots of livesets/mixes that have the track titles stored in the comments, and I know some people use the lyrics field for this same purpose.

Would it be possible, to add a comment or lyrics field to the right of a song, ideally this would be greyed out if no comment or lyrics tag exists, however if one is found then clicking it would either expand something to show you the comments or open a new page showing the comments. Perhaps these could be extra features that could be enable in the options before generating the report.

Do you know what I mean? Is it possible?

Thanks a ton for the great script

It is possible: on album pages, add track links - you click to link and open window with comments and lyrics, but I feel too lazy to do it

I got a couple errors:

I think this has something to do with the bitrate.
I have some files with no bitrate, and I think the script crash when it scans a mp3 file with no bitrate.

That script looks really great and want to test it

But the link brings me to a site in russian and gives the impression that it does not excisted anymore .

I don't know if this is true, i cant read the russian tekst

If anyone has a copy of the installer, can they email it to me? I'll mirror the file on my website.

EDIT: Actually, you can download it from here: http://www.kanski.narod.ru/main/download.htm

The script doen't crash because of the files with bitrate 0. It's because og ONE file with bitrate <34000 :-) I delete the file, and now it works.
But now I got another problem. I have over 150000 mp3 files, and this script generates to much files. I can't have more than 3000 pr folder in my webserver. And all my albumarts is way more.
Is it possible to configure this script to put the artfiles in A - B - C....?
And how do I get the search-field into my page?
