    Re: Need Suggestions on Music Data Tag Reader

    When you add (rather than apply which alters the actual audio of a file) replaygain to a file, all you're doing is adding tags that tells the player how much to increase/decrease the files volume to...

    Re: Various Artists on Compilation Albums

    So your podcasts are literally in the same tree structure as your music, and not like
    ./podcasts
    ./music

    I suppose the other question is are you looking for something to serve your podcasts too?...

    Re: Various Artists on Compilation Albums

    If you're pointing the AssetUPnP library to a location where all your albums, "collections" and podcasts reside then it's going to index them all and present them in a consolidated view.

    Re: Different Artwork for Compilation Albums.

    I'm not sure it'll help as I assume you're using AssetUPnP, but MinimServer can do this and a lot more to boot.

    Re: Need Suggestions on Music Data Tag Reader

    Firstly, I use foobar for my tagging QA and WSL for any filesystem checks I make (because I'm more comfortable scripting in Linux than I am Windows).
    Once foobar is setup it's as "easy" as any other...

    Hi Johnnyb,

    Whilst it's great to see that you're spending the time upfront to get your folder structure right, I think you're worrying too much about it, because as long as you've got a...

    On this page under the heading 'Word / Character Replacement' it shows you how to replace/remove '(Disc 1)'; it doesn't remove it JUST from the album title though if that's your issue?

    The functions you refer to in your first post are naming functions, but these are, as the name suggests used for naming your ripped/processed files.

    I didn't need much convincing, and the store apps are sandboxed so it shouldn't leave any remnants behind.

    Re: Beginner question on dynamic naming

    The "solution" in that thread sounds like you're adding metadata to Audirvana, which if you're all in might be ok, but you're locking yourself in a bit there.

  16. Re: Using DBPoweramp as an External Encoder in JRiver Media Center 29

    Ok so you do add some back, I did think the transition between songs would be quite jarring without any gaps at all, but how do you prevent adding gaps where there shouldn't be any e.g. Concerts,...
  17. Re: Using DBPoweramp as an External Encoder in JRiver Media Center 29

    It's not obvious from your post whether the conversions you're applying are going to be on a copy of your music, so thought I'd mention it just in case. Trimming silence from your tracks will mean...

    If you want to remove commas from the artist tag then you'll need to wrap it in a [REPLACE] function. You could wrap the whole thing in a [REPLACE] but then you'll be removing characters AFTER the...
