Yes, its not on the main payment page, but is available on the page that you can click on via Jaikoz, namely this page - http://www.jthink.net/jaikoz/jsp/buy/buy_version_updates.jsp

Hi
I think because SongKong treats them as compilations it set the Is Compilation field and that is probably the reason why Logitech views as VA albums. If you use Edit Metadata task in SongKong and go to the Album Advanced tab you can disable the Is Compilation flag. Please let me know if this resolves the issue.

The problem is not SongKong sets Album Artist and Artist, this is best practise to have both these fields completed.

Actually the reason SongKong treats Best Of as compilations is historical, this was to provide compatability with MusicBrainz Picard. But they only treat Va compilations as compilations now, so I do plan to change this as you want, and additionally add an Is Greatest Hits flag so can separate an artists original albums from greatest hits albums.
Not really, if nothing is getting matched then maybe database corrupted in which case please run Empty Database from the Admin menu, otherwise please run Create Support Files
SongKong 5.14 Sister, released on 14th of January 2018

Available for MacOS, Windows, Linux, Melco N1, Qnap, Synology, Docker ectera,

Please see http://blog.jthink.net/2019/01/songkong-musictagger-514-sister.html for details.
Thanks, to be clear it is now part of the standard version. Also we have just updated docker images to use SongKong 5.14, that has just been released.
Upgrading to Pro has no effect on expiry its just gives Pro functionality. Since 9.4.0 you need to have purchased version updates package if your license was more than one year old (your original standard license), just follow the link, its £10, £18, £25 for one, two or three years of version updates.
Since only the administrator can install/run SongKong it seems reasonable to allow that to run as root rather than trying to solve the problem of getting correct uids/gids and adding to these songkong.

The effect is essentially the same, since with a songkong user the customer would be attempting to give songkong access to write to music files without giving it to non admin users of the qnap. So whether using songkong or root the aim is when running songkong have access to all files. Access to what music files songkong has access to is already controlled by the mapping of the /music folder. Hence using a songkong user would only have the effect of controlling access to a subset of files within /music folder and I cannot see a usecase for this at all.

Of course, this does mean when songkong is running anyone could use webbrowser to change any files under /music, but this is the case anyway if songkong user was given permissions to /music folder anyway, so there is no change. But I will additionally introduce simple password access to songkong front end itself - https://jthink.atlassian.net/projects/SONGKONG/issues/SONGKONG-1648

I have now rebuilt songkong/songkong and songkong/songkong-arm32 so that they run as root and this should resolve permissions issue. I have now hidden songkong/songkongdockerdev since it is now no different to standard images.

Sorry, not yet.
Heh, so you can use that instead it is running exactly the same version of SongKong. But I would like to know why we cant get permissions to work when running as songkong instead, it would be helpful to see that other permissions screenshot page I asked about and whether the issue is simply that you created as user Songkong instead of songkong.

Then I have to make decision about whether I should make the standard docker app run as root instead. By creating a user I was trying to follow best practise but since it has caused a problem for number of qnap users I am wondering if better to just run as root.
whats the problem ? 13 is higher than 5.
Thanks I am sure that is what caused it, since ffmpeg doe smake sure of chapters

It was a permissions issue but we didnt solve it. Could you try songkong/songkongdockerdev image instead. This is same as standard songkong docker build except I don't specify a user, therefore I think this means it runs as root and therefore should have full file access.
Assuming you have an Intel based NAS you could try songkong/songkongdockerdev image instead. This is same as standard songkong docker build except I don't specify a user, therefore I think this means it runs as root and therefore should have full file access.
Assumiing TS-1253U is intel based then you could try songkong/songkongdockerdev image this is same as standard songkong docker build except I do'nt specify a user, therefore I think this means it runs as root.
Ok so that seems to be screenshot from ControlPanel/Shared Folders, could be there is an issue because you have created user called Songkong instead of songkong

Can you also send me two screenshots for the two tabs in folders permissions in FileStation as well please
Hi, still waiting for support files so I can help you.
If this is just a few albums then you can load both albums into Jaikoz and use Copy and Paste within the main spreadsheet view. If this is for many albums and the filenames of both sets of albums are the same (except for .mp3/flac suffix) then you could do the following.

- Load Mp3 Albums
- Advanced:Export (as .xls)
- Then edit first column of spreadsheet with your favourite spreadsheet tool replacing .mp3 in filename with .flac
- Restart Jaikoz
- Load Flac files
- Advanced:Import selecting your spreadsheet
- Save

This should import all your mp3 metadata into the equivalent flac files
Great, the problem is due to duplicate CHAP frames (okay if you just have a single CHAP frame) and we have already fixed Jaikoz (and SongKong) to cope with this ready for the next release.

Hello!

I currently own a Melco N1ZH/2 and have MinimServer installed. I mainly use MinimWatch from my Windows 7 PC on same LAN to configure the MinimServer installed on the Melco, and use MP3TAG to edit metadata for music files stored in the Melco.

I am very interested in SongKong and would like to have a trial first before purchasing. Would appreciate some clarification on below questions:

1. I will use SongKong mainly from my Windows 7 PC, similar to current usage of MP3TAG. Should I choose the version: SongKong - Windows 64bit?

2. Is the Windows version SongKong functioning exactly same as the Melco version, so that it is not necessary to choose the Melco version and have SongKong installed and running on the Melco?

3. Is it correct that even I decide to install Windows version SongKong on my PC and the Melco version on the Melco, I will only need to purchase one license for two installation? And by presenting my Melco product serial number there is a special discount right?
 

Hi Patrick
You only need to purchase one license to use on upto three machines (inc PC and Melco N1) but you need a Melco license for it to work on Melco so you need to purchase a single Melco license for PC and N1, and yes this will be £40 if you enter serial no at http://www.jthink.net/songkongformelco/buy.jsp

Melco license also gives some extra functionality for dealing with Naim wav files - http://www.jthink.net/songkong/en/versioncompare.jsp

PC/N1 downloads work the same except when installed on PC has desktop and Web UI, whereas for obvious reasons N1 install only has Web UI.

4. What's the difference, or relationship between SongKong and Jaikoz? Under which situation or specific needs then separately purchasing Jaikoz in addition to SongKong may become necessary?
 

Jaikoz was developed before SongKong, its more of a Swiss Army Tool that can do most things but requires more input from user, SongKong is more automated and hence quicker and simpler to use.

Only SongKong runs on the Melco N1
Hmm, can you send me some more screenshots of the new shares permissions please.
The Naim files we currently process are:

amginfo.xml (Matches from Amg/Rovi)

cddbinfo.txt (Matches from cddb)

UserEdits.xml (Edits made in Naim app)

Naim use these on UnitiServe to store metadata for Wav files

But I dont know about about meta.naim and if it has superceded some of this, we don't currently support meta.naim but could you send some to support@jthink.net so I can take a look.
Did you give permissions to new user for folder at Audio and Multimedia levels

and did you do this bit

and possibly configure PUID/PGID then Im confident it will work.
 

and restart Container
If you scroll down on that first screenshot is there a line for everyone, if not you could try adding it with Read/Write and then refreshing in SongKong

If that doesn't work you could try changing Guest Access Right to give full access and see if that works (I realize you may not want to do this longterm)

For some reason when I look at my folder I don't have the option to set guest permissions, and i just see standard Owner/Group/Other permissions rather than a line per user, I dont know why my display is different to yours.
One thing you could do is go into FileStation, select the shared folder and right click and select Properties, and send screenshots of the two tabs.

Another thing I don't understand is that I don't have a Multimedia folder, but it seems this is some kind of standard on Qnap ?
Thanks for the logs, okay it is a permission issue you do not have access to see the contents of /share/Mutimedia/Audio (via /music)

That guide is useful, actually we do create a user called songkong (with group songkong) as part of the the Docker https://hub.docker.com/r/songkong/songkong/dockerfile (we dont run as root). But I am thinking the issue is that this does not relate to any real user on your system.

So if you create real songkong user on your Qnap, give them permissions to your multimedia folder and possibly configure PUID/PGID then Im confident it will work.

I'm also thinking that maybe for the user I create as part of the container the group should be everyone not songkong. Its worth noting that SongKong was working fine for me on my qnap without having to do anything else, but it has only been tested by me on this one server.
I must confess I'm not entirely sure, I am new Qnap myself but it seems like Docker doesn't have permissions to see those files, actually can you run Create Support Files from the main SongKong start page this should send me your logs files and I can check if there is a permissions issue.
Hmm, I wanted to check it was seeing as a docker install and because just showing music end point it looks like it is, and I assume you have correctly mapped /Music to your actual music folder, could it be a permissions issue, does songkong docker have permissions to see files in that folder ?

Bit confused why it says the logs are in /home/songkong rather than /songkong though. Unfortunately on my Qnap (that I havent used since Xmas) it is currently hanging when I try to open Container Station so I cannot at the moment check anything on my side.
