Hi all, I run SK and a large and very messy collection of tracks last night and three immediate questions / issues arose!

1. HTML shows a ton of these: Apr 26, 2018 10:12:50 PM:Unknown Error
What are they? Broken tracks?

Is this with SongKong 5.2 or SongKong 5.3, its a regression that I thought was fixed in 5.3 but maybe still an issue with 5.3

2. I set SK to copy the tracks to a new folder, which it did. But the messy folder structure remained the same! I had unticked 'rename file part only' but that didn't seem to work!

Did you have Rename Filename from Metadata configured on the first tab, by default it is set to No.

3. A lot of albums still remain in the old folder... I guess these are just unmatched?

Correct, its worth noting that SongKong may have matched the song, but unless it could match the whole group to an album then Move Folder will not move them.

It is worth running again, as usually SongKong can find a few more full albums matches using the extra metadata added first time round for song only matches
Please see http://blog.jthink.net/2018/04/songkong-53-with-improved-delete.html for more details
I wouldn't say the artwork from MusicBrainz/Discogs is poor but there is room for improvement. In the meantime have you tried out SongKongs new Edit Songs task, this includes a Google coverart search making it easier to find potential album covers for albums without artwork.
I think Uninstall is broken, simply just delete the folder Jaikoz has been installed in, that will remove it.
No it doesnt use https, but glad it now working for you.
Hmm, I'm not sure because the customer just reported to me that they got it working by deleting config files and reinstalling, if you created a new virtual machine that would be the ultimate reinstall.

Okay, have you checked the contents of your license.properties file are okay, and is SongKong able to talk to the outside world to verify license ?
Thankyou so much for your kind words JWH, it keeps me going !
Hi David

I think there is as bug in the latest release, the problem is when matched to a track in MusicBrainz without a track length, I will have to do a fix next week.
Hmm, that should not happen , please can you run Help:Create Support Files this will send me your log files and I should be able to see the underlying cause then.
Report 42 seemed to take 2 hours 40 minutes (not 15 hours) and this was in Preview mode so nothing changed.
Report 44 took 44 minutes, and I guess it was quicker because the songs had already been loaded into database so it didnt have to read from disck to find out if they were duplicates

At the end of the day Delete Duplicates is comparing songs not albums, but do want to improve the report to make it more album centric ( and indeed Alan AInslie form Melco has requested this)

So instead of listing the Abbey Road just as a list of songs, they would be grouped by folder.

So it seems you had two versions of Abbey Road:
/Volumes/share/import_Mac/The Beatles/Abbey Road

In your Preferred Deletion Criteria, your first criteria is audio format and aif is listed above flac so that is why aif is kept and flac moved.
I can see duplicates were found for Tracks 1-8 and 10 to 17 but not track 9

So it seems to be the issue is that the only BEATLES HD DEMOS/Abbey Road version actually had track 9, and therefore this has been left, and all the others deleted since they were the duplicate of the better quality one.

Could SongKong do better here ?

Perhaps we could add a CompleteAlbum critera so that if that was at top of the Preferred Deletion Criteria list it would delete the aif files because unlike the flac they don't have a complete album, but then if your collection was aif rather than mp3 you would not want the mp3 version kept, this could be ovecome if we also had a isLossless rule.

Does that make sense
SongKong 5.2 - with Manual Editing released 19th April 2018.

Please see http://blog.jthink.net/2018/04/songkong-52-now-with-free-manual.html for full details.
Yes, on the Delete Duplicates Advanced tab you can select which duplicate is deleted based on Audio Format, Quality etc.

Its the same download, you then just install your license that you should have received by email to make it fully licensed.
Problem was solved with a clean reinstall.
I checked your version of Plex Mask and your version doesnt contain DiscNo and doesnt split into Disc subfolders so SongKong is doing what is meant to. By contrast your Compilation Rename Mask does do this hence why you would get this behaviour for compilations(that includes single artisst Best Of Albums) but not regular albums.
Just had a quick look at your reports Report 35. If you click on Matched to MusicBrainz and look at Richard Ashcroft you can see it is actually matched to a 2x Vinyl release, hence a two disc release

Quite why it matched to this rather than the 10 track CD release I dont know , but i think this is your issue togather with the fact that you are using

[ Plex Music Scanner ] AlbumArtist/Album/Track - Title

as the rename mask, and this does not include discno only track no

Is it maybe that this is a multi-disc album, so you have disc 01, track 01, disc02, track01 and you are only seeing the trackno ?
Yes I have them, but I need more info from you, i.e you seem to be running Songkong on one folder at a time so give me a specific folder you have run SongKong on where it hasnt updated the folder name.

I can see in Report 12 you ran against /Volumes/Data/iTunes Music/Music/Andreas Vollenweider/Book of Roses and that seemed to have worked

Report 13 was run against a Various Artists album, iTunes does funny things with compilations so maybe the issue is related to that.

Reports 14, 15 were run in Preview mode so no changes would be made
Easiest if you could just run Help:Create Support Files then I can clearly see your configuration.
SongKong can replace both the subfolder and filename part of the mask, so Im unclear here is the metadat wrong or do you just need to update folde from current metadata.
Hi, ensure Preferences:Remote Correct:Format:Add Ep and Single release types to album titles is unchecked.
Okay, raised https://jthink.atlassian.net/browse/JAIKOZ-1214 for further consideration.
Yes it is a known bug due to the way tables work in Java, but I will take another look.
Okay, I have created https://jthink.atlassian.net/browse/SONGKONG-1449
Not really, by the Summer hopefully.
Oh, you mean the filename.

By default Songkong doesnt actually rename files but assuming that you have changed options so it does then please check what rename mask you are using.

If you are unsure about all this just run Help:Create Support Files and I will look for you.
No, Im afraid not, do you need that ?

Normally you only do one time select all save and move. If you like me check manually every song one has to highlight the first column every time, which is prone to error.

I dont think is how most people use Jaikoz to be honest, maybe I can make an option but I think the way it currently works is better for most.

ForSSound wrote:

Another thing is the warning: you selected only x rows can we not turn this warning after the first time off?

Yes perhaps that make sense.
Please run Help:Create Support Files in case its something obvious I can check in Songong

Can you check in another application please. If you are having problems reading ins another app then send me one of the files.

If it is okay it does seem this is an Audiovana issue but I have never used Audiovana so Im afraid your next point of call would probably be to contact Audiovana.

Hi, sorry for the delay Albunack has now been updated with latest data
