I had to delete my database again. This time it grew to 9.7 GB before it gave up the ghost. When it's corrupted, it will scan for some amount of time, then say that it was cancelled by the user when it was not.

I just renamed it to .old and started it up again.

Hi, Ive checked your logs and unfortunately SongKong ran out of memory and I think that corrupted the database. Generally SongKong doesnt use that much memory (compared to Jaikoz) but it looks like I need to configure it with a little more, currently configured to use a maximum of 50MB. SongKong can only use a maximum of the amount allocated rather than making use of all your machines memory.

I note, you are running on Windows. It is very simple to increase the memory allocated as follows:

Shutdown SongKong
Edit SongKong.ini (SongKong64.ini if have SongKong 64bit)
Modifiy vm.heap.preferred to set the max memory (in megabytes)
Restart SongKong  


Mine was set to 500, I set it to 5000. I have 32 GB of RAM.
In the second two groupings if all the songs are actually identical then it doesnt really mater whihc one is kept does it ?  


No, it doesn't matter to me, but other than manually finding these anomalies, I have no way of finding them. For me, it shouldn't be too hard since I dump all recordings in to a Artist folder but I could still have duplicates across multiple folders if multiple artists are involved. The real issue is with the second part:

This option relates to the album name not the song name, and will only add [live] to the album if the releasegroup that the release is part of within Musicbrainz has a secondary type of Live, which this one does not  


Keeping with this example, (8) is the album version I want to keep, so after manually finding all other (*) recordings and deleting them, I simply can not name the actual song: Billy Joel - Goodnight Saigon.mp3 because the "live" version from another album is already taking this name.

Since the ID3 tag correctly tags this song as Live, I can again, manually identify the anomaly and fix it, but if I ever rescan, I will end up with the same issue.

Another example:

Billy Joel - Captain Jack (live).mp3 - My Lives (complication) album
Billy Joel - Captain Jack.mp3 - Songs in the Attic (live) album
Billy Joel - Captain Jack(1).mp3 - Piano Man album
Billy Joel - Captain Jack(2).mp3 - Complete Hits album
Billy Joel - Captain Jack(3).mp3 - Essential Billy Joel album
Billy Joel - Captain Jack(4).mp3 - The Stranger <-- not on this album
Billy Joel - Captain Jack(5).mp3 - Piano Man album
Billy Joel - Captain Jack(6).mp3 - Piano Man album
Billy Joel - Captain Jack(7).mp3 - The Stranger <-- not on this album
Billy Joel - Captain Jack(8).mp3 - The Stranger <-- not on this album

There are 2 songs with the eaf7c605-015d-4665-8773-422331501cf7:1986fca3-b291-44f6-b772-c963faa23be6:10:584a3887-c74e-4ff2-81e1-1620fbbe4f84 key

(live).mp3, .mp3, (1), (2), and (3) are not identified as duplicates, (6) is kept, and so is (7) and it's not even a track on that album.

I'm so confused :-/


Done.
I didn't want to add on to the previous topic as there might be other with the same issue.

2 issues:

Issue 1:
There are 3 songs with the 02a31423-9169-47f4-8a80-a367b066b3ab:e2b8106e-5d9a-4d61-ab6b-9ca6c377d748:04:ecc99f0d-a5fc-4ed2-99df-faab357f15ad key

Deleted G:\!SongKong\Billy Joel\Billy Joel - Goodnight Saigon(2).mp3

Deleted G:\!SongKong\Billy Joel\Billy Joel - Goodnight Saigon(3).mp3

(6) is the kept one because it's 256 bit vs 96, 128, and 160 bit for the rest.


There are 3 songs with the be1df30a-d45d-43cc-ba65-fa028d1e181c:e2b8106e-5d9a-4d61-ab6b-9ca6c377d748:04:ecc99f0d-a5fc-4ed2-99df-faab357f15ad key

Deleted G:\!SongKong\Billy Joel\Billy Joel - Goodnight Saigon(4).mp3

(8) is kept, unknown reason why, it's 128 bit and from the same album (The Nylon Curtain) and same track number (4) as the original file kept (6).


There are 2 songs with the 7f62464e-0785-487e-9ade-58ecc3a933cc:e2b8106e-5d9a-4d61-ab6b-9ca6c377d748:04:ecc99f0d-a5fc-4ed2-99df-faab357f15ad key

Keep G:\!SongKong\Billy Joel\Billy Joel - Goodnight Saigon(5).mp3

Deleted G:\!SongKong\Billy Joel\Billy Joel - Goodnight Saigon(7).mp3

(5) is kept, unknown reason why, it's 128 bit and from the same album (The Nylon Curtain) and same track number (4) as the original file kept (6).

Issue 2:
Billy Joel - Goodnight Saigon.mp3 is off of a live album and not a duplicate but is not labeled as "live" even though Add EP, Single, Complication, Live and Remix release types to the release title is checked.

I'm using the following for Rename mask: Compilation rename mask: and Filename Masks:

ifnotempty2(albumartist,artist,'/')
+ ifnotempty2(artist,albumartist,' - ')
+ title

What am I missing here?
I just deleted the .db file (it was over 5 GB). Seems to be working again.
I have a huge directory (over 600 GB) that I was scanning with SK. Everything was going smoothly, finishing about 70 GB of it but I had to restart for unrelated issues. I figured since I was moving the files to a new directory I could just pickup where I left off after the reboot.

I clicked Cancel, the application disappeared immediately but never generated a report. When I restarted the application, it informed me that it had crashed on report generation and suggested I could run the report now. I clicked OK and it sat for hours without finishing. I ended the songkong64 process, moved all the processed music out of the destination folder to avoid any conflicts. Then I started to scan the original folder with the remaining songs again. This time it ran for a few hours but only did 60 or 70 songs, so I did the same process again and rebooted.

Now when I run SK, it starts analyzing the folder and then I get a pop-up window that says Message in the title bar but is blank. I can not click in it or dismiss it with the X in the corner. I have to end the SK process manually. I tried to empty the database but after about 5 minutes of "emptying" I get the same dialog.

I also moved all the music to another drive to see if there could be an issue with the hardware. No change.
I have another request along this topic. I really don't care when a song is on a compilation, I really would like to have the ability to tag it to the original album/track/year/album art for the first time the track appeared.

Does this request have any merit or am I alone in this feeling that I don't care to have any information about compilations considering that many songs appear on greatest hits, and many many other compilations.
