  1. I have noticed that when I am browsing my music, particularly particular songs in an album, I can't cycle through all the songs in that album. For example, if I browse to the album view, click on Adele's 21, and then click on Rolling in the Deep, it takes me to the media info view for Rolling in the Deep. Like I would expect, I can then click on the right arrow and it will take me to another song; however, it isn't the next track in the album. It takes me to Take It All instead of Rumour Has It. If I cycle on more time, it takes me to One and Only. I now can't cycle through any more songs. Those three are the only three that I can view. This is not the only album that this happens to. Every other album I have has a similar problem when I attempt to cycle through the songs. Is this happening for anybody else?
  2. I have a large music collection (600+GB) that is exhaustively organised with the following folder structure: ARTIST NAME - ALBUM NAME\Album Track Name.mp3 I would like to view my music in MBC in the same way, listed by folder structure. The only way I can see to do this would be to edit the metadata in thousands of folders to make sure the "sort by" field was the same as the Folder Name. Can anyone suggest a simpler way to do this? I'm sure I'm missing something basic? edit: spolling
  3. Hi all, I recently re-taged a lot of my music genres since they were a mess and couldn't get Genre Cleaner to work (another issue, but not the reason for this post). SInce re-tagging, all my music shows up everywhere correctly except in MBC. The Music category will show recently added items just fine and I can enter into those, however, going into Music shows No Items. Music by Genre shows all the music correctly. I am using Chocolate & Subdude and both show the same thing. The dashboard shows everything as well. MBC 7-14.1 MBS 3.0.5309.26857 MBC log included MBClassic-2072014000a65710e21479a9e002adeb614c281.zip
  4. I cannot access my music library in Media Centre. When I click on my media folder for music I get the error message Problem Loading Collection. The folders for movies and television programs open fine--but no music.
  5. Just recently (didn't look into it until tonight, but I think I noticed something a couple days ago) the Artist "Weezer" suddenly got changed to "Raditude", which is a name of one of their albums. Now, looking at that in the metadata manager it looks like this. Now, when i try and go back and change it back, MBS keeps thinking it's an album, not an artist or album artist. I tried deleting all of the corresponding info in Windows explorer, but it still keeps it as Raditude. I'm looking right now for some related logs. Only seems to have happened to Weezer, as far as I can tell.
  6. Version 3.0.5289.18702 I have an estimate 200 artists with red exclamations on them, not associated to a music brainz id. not strange in itself, however their names and content match (non ambiguously) music brainz 100%. proven by the fact that when i click 'identify' in dashboard i get a single match on music brainz. should i expect a scan library task to match automatically? A refresh on artist, automatically matches. How do i force a refresh of all artists (not album artists)? i dont think that the affected artists are showing in the log after a scan library task. thanks
  7. Hi All - My Windows Media Audio Lossless (WMA) music CD rips are not playing on either the official or MBMC channel interfaces. FLAC play fine on both channels. Both are supported according to documentation for my Roku 3 with firmware 5.5. Roku Supported Media Is anyone else experiencing this? Thanks, Tanamur
  8. Version 3.0.5308.41891 in the dashboard, tried chrome and ie.
  9. hi, new user of Mediabrowser Server. I'm looking for a way to have my music collection in order in XBMC, which is lacking of media managing for music... So far, i love MB, seems to be what i was looking for A few (newbie maybe) question that i can't find answer around, -> can't google images be added to the images sources ? -> switch automatic renaming landscape.jpg (seems to be MB default) to fanart.jpg (XBMC) many thanks !
  10. First off, I have tried to dutifully research this issue on the forums. That being said, this is my first post, so please be gentle... My understanding is that the built-in music interface is meant to utilize WMC's player, which makes perfect sense. I have read that when hovering over a folder (such as an album) in MBC and then pressing "play," you should then see some form of pop-up that asks whether you want to play the entire album, shuffle, queue, etc. When pressing "play" (whether on harmony remote or WMC keyboard) while positioned on an album folder or genre folder, my MBC freezes and will not let me reverse my path; I am forced to logout of MBC altogether. My music plays with no issues when selecting a song directly. This issue does not occur on MBS (and the expected play menu appears as desired) or with the Android client. Thus, it appears to exclusively be a MBC issue. 1) How do I fix this behavior? (log attached) 2) Am I correct in assuming that music genre folders can be played (as in WMC's base interface) with options such as "play all" or "shuffle" or something to that effect? Thanks in advance for your assistance. MBClassic-672014bde2cfca201542a0ba25909c5bb09660.log
  11. Version 3.0.5289.18702 there seems to be a significant performance bottleneck with persons and artists views in the dashboard, and its not related to cpu or disk subsystem performance. perhaps the database is the constraint along with the query. (roku and android clients dont seem affected but then their views have more spurious entries) all my content is stored locally on 5400rpm hdds my.application /ibn is stored on SSD (across 2 partitions of same ssd) all my views are 500 large (500 for movies, albums, persons and artists) q6600, 4x3.2ghzcpu 6Gb ram win7sp1 if i click (in dashboard) (views configured 500 large) home - movies - movies....the 1st 500 movies are shown <1second home - movies - persons....it take 20seconds to show persons.. likewise albums <1s artist or album artists >20 seconds. It is 100% reproducible for me and make no difference how many times the query is run (ie same after all images are cached etc the cpu and hdds are not breaking a sweat when viewed in perfmon. 2014-07-06 11:45:56.0530 Debug - HttpServer: HTTP GET http://localhost:8096/mediabrowser/Artists/AlbumArtists?SortBy=SortName&SortOrder=Ascending&Recursive=true&Fields=DateCreated&StartIndex=0&ParentId=ad14e238b35e6a32a39d2ef9c1a779f3&Limit=500&userId=59543acb15f7ccd6012f4447c75b0cf2 2014-07-06 11:46:18.9273 Debug - HttpServer: HTTP Response 200 to [::1]:55920.

  12. My Album artist view in dashboards shows invalid objects, namely, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s. I know they are invalid in MB3 terms as they have no content when viewed in dashboard (and a full scan has successfully completed) They are also invalid because MP3TAG confirms there is no such albumartist. in library explorer, using 60s as an example { "IsAccessedByName": false, "Tags": [ "indie", "indie rock", "ska", "alternative", "rock" ], "ProductionLocations": [ ], "IsFolder": true, "ContainingFolderPath": "\\\\Q6600\\Music\\Compilations\\Decades\\60s", "IsOwnedItem": false, "ThemeSongIds": [ ], "ThemeVideoIds": [ ], "IsPhysicalRoot": false, "IsRoot": false, "LinkedChildren": [ ], "ImageInfos": [ { "Path": "\\\\Q6600\\Music\\Compilations\\Decades\\60s\\Folder.jpg", "Type": "Primary", "DateModified": "2008-12-29T17:05:26.0000000Z" }, { "Path": "\\\\Q6600\\Music\\Compilations\\Decades\\60s\\backdrop.jpg", "Type": "Backdrop", "DateModified": "2014-02-24T15:58:50.1945572Z" } ], "IsInMixedFolder": false, "Name": "60s", "Id": "836b0a534e6699041ad35bd324efac16", "Path": "\\\\Q6600\\Music\\Compilations\\Decades\\60s", "SupportsLocalMetadata": true, "DateCreated": "2013-03-07T21:12:49.0000000Z", "DateModified": "2014-02-24T16:46:52.9704425Z", "DateLastSaved": "2014-02-24T15:58:50.1955572Z", "DontFetchMeta": false, "LockedFields": [ ], "PremiereDate": "2003-01-01T00:00:00.0000000Z", "DisplayMediaType": "MusicArtist", "Overview": "\n The Dead 60s formed in Liverpool, United Kingdom in 2003, they comprised of Matt McManamon (Vocals, Guitar), Ben Gordon (Guitar, Organ), Charlie Turner (Bass Guitar), Bryan Johnson (Drums).

Note at some point mb3 created an artist.xml in the folder and matched to an mbz artist id. i since deleted the xml and rescanned. I guess mb3 is confused my by folder structure for compilations, maybe i need to ask for a feature request so i can put a .ignore file in my folder structure for music folders which neither represent artists or albums and are just organisational folders on the filesystem. Possibly mb3 is further confounded by the fact that these organisational folders have folder.jpgs in them. thank you.
  13. MB supported this convention originally, but doesn't seem to anymore. In the album artists view a band like 'The Smiths' stored in W:\Music\Smiths, The and with content tagged with artist and album artist 'The Smiths' shows up under album artists in dashboard as 'Smiths, The' with no content underneath. shows up under artists in dashboard as 'The Smiths' with content underneath. Has a local title of 'Smiths, The' in W:\Music\Smiths, The\Artist.xml ty reason why it would be useful for MB3 to support this filesystem format is that if you have 200 artists starting 'The' in W:\Music, it is harder to jump in list to the artist in Windows Explorer. FWIW the solution seems to be :- edit the Artist XML so that local title reads 'The Smiths' and then refresh. Delete the XML and it is recreated with local title 'Smiths, The' which is odd as the xml is fully populated with metadata about 'The Smiths' to all other intents and purposes. Maybe Music Folders ending ', The' could be given special treatment for their local title value when the xml is created?
  14. MB3 currently doesn't support the following folder structure... [\org{0, n}] [\artist\{0,1}] [\org {0,n}] \album where org=organisational subfolder {0,n}= zero to many instances []=optional Could such support be added, or alternatively could an xml tag/file be recognised by mb3 to treat organisational folders as organisational and NOT as artists/albumartists. eg M:\Music\Soundtracks\Blade Runner\Tracks.mp3 M:\Music\Soundtracks\Top Gun\Tracks.mp3 M:\Music\Soundtracks\Jungle Book\Tracks.mp3 Soundtracks is detected (shown in dashboard) as an albumartist and artist.xml is placed on filesystem thanks for considering.
  15. Version 3.0.5271.29451 Is it intentional that the album artist 'Various Artists' as read from music tag '%album artist%' does not display under 'album artists' in dashboard and in clients eg roku under album artists; making it harder to find content under this album artist. The artist does show up under 'artists', and its entry when opened showing content where 'various artists' is not the value of the tag %artist%..This seems to be the wrong way around.

    music folders

    Having a problem. I'm running latest server version 3.0.5289.18702 I have six music folders and in these folders their is a artist.xml and a folder.xml but when I go into the metadata manager for each one of these folders the external Id's do not show up and the Identify tab is not present. I have tried deleting the artist.xml and the folder.xml with no luck. Also under Image By Name folder, inside there is a artist folder and when I open the folder the same six artist folders I'm having problems with are there as well. I have tried deleting these folders and restart the server but they would always come back. I can't figure this out, any help would be appreciated. Added log file Like I said I'm only having problems with six music folders out of my whole collection. folder structure is set up correctly .

    Support for Nested Music Folders

    Perhaps I'm really picky about the way that I organize my media, and if that's the case, then feel free to call me out on it. I like to keep multi-disc albums organized into their own sub-folders though: ArtistAlbumDisc 1 Disc 2 It would seem as though MediaBrowser doesn't support this type of organization. Would love to see this kind of support added.

    Problem Loading Artists

    @@gcw07 When browsing to the artist section of music I get a 'well handled error' "Problem Loading Artists" and then a crash. (100% of time) Tried official release and beta release of official roku client, latest as of 12/04/2014 21:52 GMT (same issue been apparent for c. 1 month+, possibly always been there) All other clients seem fine browsing music. i have c. 7000 artists and 700 album artists. i dont get an error when i 'jump in' to a letter. is there a capacity limit i am hitting? Is there a way to turn on client logging to see what might be the issue? any other ideas please? thank you.
  19. Part: Server Version: Beta 3.0.5192.19560 Client: Web Hi, First post here (so I might not have all info you need). Secondly, my compliments to the development team and user community. I have been using MB3 since Oct (short timer I know) and I am more than pleased. I understand that this is a beta release just reporting for inclusion in future release. Action: When I click on the website link from the Artist page: in a new page I get....(I know screen shots are preferable but this seemed pretty straightforward) Snapshot of GetDashboardResource generated by ServiceStack on 3/23/2014 7:37:03 PMview json datasource from original url: http://titan:8096/mediabrowser/dashboard/www.phish.com? in other formats: json xml csv jsv Response Status Error Code ArgumentException Message Argument not supported: www.phish.com Stack Trace [GetDashboardResource: 3/23/2014 7:37:03 PM]: [REQUEST: {ResourceName:www.phish.com}] System.ArgumentException: Argument not supported: www.phish.com at MediaBrowser.Common.Net.MimeTypes.GetMimeType(String path) at MediaBrowser.WebDashboard.Api.DashboardService.Get(GetDashboardResource request) at lambda_method(Closure , Object , Object ) at ServiceStack.Host.ServiceRunner`1.Execute(IRequest request, Object instance, TRequest requestDto) Errors Probable Cause (My Best guess ): The link was supplied by one of the Metadata providers. For music my setting are the default providers in default order. (I did not manually enter it). The argument is expecting the "http://" prefix. The generated links for music in the web editor show as only the "link", for movies they show as http://"link" My preference would to have the server provide the "http://" and can add that as a Feature Request if needed. Again I know this is in beta Thanks! -Vicpa
  20. Currently having an issue that I can't seem to figure out. I have an artist in my music folder with the structure: \Music Folder \Artist \Album 1 Song 1 etc \Album 2 \song 1 \etc In the metadata editor on the dashboard the name field for the artist is the name of one of the albums (can change between either if you clear the field and refresh), adding the artist ids in the relevant fields and refreshing does not correct this. Also there is no way to add album or artist ids to an album if you click on its name but you can if you click on a single track ? It seems the artist is being treated as an album as mb has dropped an album.xml in there but oddly when i had it refresh an album it dropped a folder.xml in there. I'm sure this is something I've done wrong but would appreciate a bit of help here. Server Version: 3.0.5238.39498 Client Version: Theater 3.0.5233.39319 Tracks are in FLAC format
  21. Hello! Long-time HTPCer, but new it MB3. I setup my son as a user with a parental rating of Y-7. Movies and TV shows work fine, you can only see shows with a rating of Y-7 or less. But in music, while you can only play music I marked as Y-7, you can see all artists and albums. I'd rather not have him see Rob Zombie cover art for a few more years! A side effect of this is the small covers shown on the view button also pulls from all albums, while movies/tv only use ones he can watch. Since all his music his under genre Children, it would be nice to have the ability to limit by genre instead of rating. Then, I wouldn't need to a rating to all his songs. Thanks! Looking forward to learning the ins and outs of this program.
  22. I have two albums by the dB's but I can't get them to show up in the artist's folder. I checked the tags to make sure the artist information matched the albums exactly. I removed the albums from my media folder several times, removed all XML files and removed the artist from the roaming folder, ran a media scan with no dB's present in the collection, added the albums back and ran a new scan but the albums never show up in the artist folder. I also added the musicbrainz artist code to the albums so it would match the code in the artist folder. Still zip. I'm assuming this has something to do with the unusual way the band name is spelled but I'm not sure what to do to get the albums to show up. Any suggestions?

    Album artist detection error

    Just added my music collection. It seems B. B. King albums are not ok. There is no "B. B. King" as an album artist but there are two "B. B."s detected as album artists. I understand this artist name is commonly written "B.B. King" with no spaces between the "B."s. Anyway, it seems something went wrong with the scanning as both "B. B."s album artists have no records under them. Following is an image of the web interface: Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance,
  24. Some of the albums in my music artist folders don't show up. I click on the artist and there will be a bio and picture but it shows no albums available even though there are one or more albums in the artist folder. Sometimes when I re-do the tags with MP3 tag the album will show up--other times it makes no difference and I still can't access the music through Media Browser. Is there something specific I need to do so my music files will show up where I want and I can play them?
