I noticed that when I use Auto Correct, Jaikoz will 'often' not match an album that I know exists in MB.. So if I force a match to a specific album, I get a pop up window that tell me 1 track is way different because it's time is off. I usually assume this is a typo in MB as the time for the one track usually waaay off (10s of minutes).

So is there a way I can tell jaikoz that if all else is well but 1 or 2 tracks have the time length way off, go ahead and match anyway?

I see this happen a lot through out my auto correction so it'd be nice to have as an option..

Oh also, is there a way I can change the number of files before jaikoz treats a folder as random songs instead of an album? This should be configurable as I often have albums with 50 or more tracks and Jaikoz always assumes its a bunch of singles and starts matching things all crazy..

The track duration check is very good for weaning out bad matches, for example if a song starts with bad metadata making it look like another song the scoring may well rematch it to the same wrong song, but the track duration check would help prevent that happening. In general it is more important to prevent bad matches even if at the expense of a few good matches.

Having said that, I'm aware that track duration check can prevent good matches either either because of bad data in the database or because corrupt track headers in your audio so in the 8.3.2 release changed it so it only does the check if your songs were not matched by AcoustId


So this circumvents the problem for many MusicBrainz matches, but doesn't apply to Discogs matching.

Treat songs as as random folder should only kick if you have more 90 songs in one folder, and only then if you have multiple artist and album metadata. The limit used to be higher but alot of people see to test Jaikoz out with top 100s and Jaikoz wasn't matching as treating as a single album.

Ive raised


for consideration, but I like to establish if the RandomFolder check is actually the problem, for that I would need you to run against
such a problem folder then email support@jthink.net your support files (Advanced:Create Support Files)
