I think there should be an option to have the songs that don't have PUID's and that didn't change based on match to MusicBrainz --- basically, the songs that didn't find a match to MusicBranz --- to be set aside, so that one could manually look them up to MusicBrainz.

Could this done in the form of a filter, i.e Only Show Songs Without MusicBrainzId, or is this not what you mean ?

And I would want the manual metadata look up done by album, to speed up the process. 

Please explain this further, I think the problem would be that it makes sense to the user to process records in the order they are listed in jaikoz, but they could be sorted in any way they, not neccesarily by album order

But I would want there to be check boxes besides each one as to indicate which ones you would want translated 

But how is the translation done ?

For testing like this, I find vmware extremely useful. You can install any OS/Distro you need to, to test compatibility.

The server version is free to download and use (www.vmware.com)

thanks for the tip

For example, the Table settings don't allow me to uncheck fields that the table currently displays. I've read the help, which instructs to Select, then Double-click the Visible field. Sometimes this works, mostly it doesn't.

Originally I prevented the deselection of the first fields (artist,album,status) of the table because of a particular problem, I think now probably only Status should not be deselectable, and this should be clearer in the user Interface.

First time in, Read Folder of Folder Settings doesn't allow "Cancel" when folder path is empty.

Ok, this used to required and there used to be a Wizard to force you to specify a folder, but not required now, it is a bug, but hardly a showstopper.

Save Setting, I get a Jaikoz error "javax.swing.JPanel" when switching between "Always" and "When exists" and/or id3 versions.

This is worrying, I cant replicate this please send me your logs

Basically, every setting dialog I've opened, has failed in succession in some way.

Exaggerating a little maybe.

It's tough to take advantage of the otherwise great features when simply configuring the app according to the Offline Help cools enthusiasm.

I'd like to see Settings tidied up and Tabbed, so I can quickly review & configure all settings without constantly returning to the app and opening a new dialog. Plus a button to access Help from such a Tabbed dialog would be great for access the extensive details documented in the offline help. 

Yes I planned some time ago to have all the Action Settings available as one super tab, but it hasn't been top priority and I couldnt decide on the UI, if you would like to sketch out an example design that would help.
Help links are another thing on the TODO list.

And is there a way to mark the duplicates for delete or does that have to be one by one? 

Well you can select a number of files and mark them for deletion but with duplicates you want to delete all the duplicates, you want to be left with one file per duplicate song but how could Jaikoz choose which one you want to save and which one you want to keep ?

Hiya, just registered my copy, great product.

How do I get it so that "corrected" files are saved to a different directory? 

Well, what do you mean by 'Corrected', remember that Jaikoz is a tag editor that can be used in many ways its not just a MusicBrainz tagger, so 'Corrected' means different things to different people.

There are two things you can do, the BaseFolder and SubFolders foields are editable so you are free to edit these , causing these files when saved to be moved to the new folder. There is also a 'Save and Move..' option on the row header popup menu just:
select the row numbers of the files you want to save,
Right click to bring up menu
Select 'Save and move'
Select a folder to move these files to.

How Do I only search for Album Art and only udpate album art? 

Ok at the moment the album art is done on the asin (amazon id) although this may change. So you could the following:

Edit the MusicBrainz Settings AutoFormat tab to only populate the Amazon Id,
(this is the bottom option)
Run Tag from MusicBrainz
Run Get Artwork from Internet
Delete the Amazon Id field from the UserDefinedText fields if you really want to
Save your files

I had this same problem last night.

The first one I came upon was eMOTIVe by A perfect Circle.
Three songs: Passive, People are People and When the Levee Breaks came up as 3 different songs by Anthrax. I don't recall exactly which ones as I am at work now.

Also I think one of my Beck albums tracks came up as a German Drinking song.

At the moment there are a couple of issues with MusicBrainz returning 100% matches when they dont really match. I am trying to work round this but what I dont want to do is to start rejecting correct matches because the tag data is slightly different. What you can do with the latest release is only mtach based on puid, if no puid match is done it wont match by metadata even if it finds 100% matches.

A feature like Picards to pick the actual song would be great or at least having a check to see if the current Artist/Album/Track name in the Tag is similar before replacing it would be nice.

Do you mean, select from possible matches I am working on adding a manual/semi-automatic musicbrainz lookup at the moment. Feel free to add ideas at this post http://www.jthink.net/jaikozforum/posts/list/75.page

Anonymous wrote:

Another suggestion I have is that if a track has a MbID to have the option to go ahead and update the metadata to that ID. So say the Auto-Match gets it wrong and I look the proper ID up in MB database and place that in the MbID field, when you do the Auto-Match just have it download the Data for that ID.

Yes that would be a good feature, Ill try and get that in soon.

Anyways chances are I will purchase a copy of the program tonight, I really like the spreadsheet interface and the ease with which all the data including art can be updated. Keep up the good work. 

Thanks thats good news

It looks like some text replacement is not being done correctly...

I am getting lots of %1 where I should be getting actual number or filenames:


 %1 Files to have acoustis Ids retrieved
 %1 Files processed so far


Is this happening in the progress dialog ? I havent been able to replicate this problem myself, it all appears to be working fine.
Released today, this latest version of Jaikoz now contains a Browser (similar to the Browser in iTunes) to make it easier to filter your loaded audio, and performs tasks on subsets of your data. There also a number of smaller enhancements and fixes, full details at http://www.jthink.net/jaikoz/jsp/news/start.jsp
Ive had to lock a couple of topics because they keep getting spam postings attached to them, if anyone has a better idea please let me know.
Can you give me some specific examples of which fields you want to translate
There is quite a delay in submitting software to download.com and it actually being listed unless you pay. I am behind on submission though Ive been too busy writing the software! . It was just an example some other sites are versiontracker.com , softpedia.com and macupdate.

Neglected some critical information.

Macintosh OS X 10.4.8

Jaikoz 1.7.0

I see an earlier message about oversized popup windows, and the inability of closing them. Looks lilke the same thing to me, although it was supposedly fixed in 1.6.0

I look around for any logs and send them to support.


Hi I haven't received any logs files you need to send the jaikozdebug-0-0.log and jaikozuser0-0.log to support at jthink dot net. Yes a problem with oversized dialogs was fixed, could you also do a screen grab as i havent been able to reproduce your problem.

I have not yet managed to get hold of a Suse system to try and reproduce this, it is not happening on my Fedora Linux system
Can you send me your jaikozdebug0-0.log and jaikozuser0-0.log files please with details of what time the error occurred
The logs files are now created in the users home directory( since 1.6.1) The problem occurs because the trial license is still created within the Jaikoz folder when you first start it. so you need to run as root the first time to run Jaikoz, and create the license file.

After this you should be able to run successfully as a normal user.
Yes I know, I discovered this today, something went amiss in the build - Ill probably release a new version in the next couple of days when I have a suitable oppoortunity
This should not happen, please send your jaikozuser0-0.log and jaikozdebug0-0.log so I can investigate

1) Would it be possible to call the id3 file acousticfingerprint.id3 instead of (in addition to) mp3filename.id3?[/color] This solves a variety of problems including renamed or reencoded files or changes in naming strategy. Theoretically, the fingerprint should be the same everytime you rip or convert a mp3 file. Additionally, the metadata could be restored to multiple copies of the same music.

This seems like a reasonable idea, but of course there is a problem if the file does not have an acousticfingerprint. So lets think about the user interface for this, I think the best thing would be to have a settings panel which allowed you to:
Specify whether to name by filename or acoustic fingerprint by default
What to do if there is no puid, I cant think of any option other thatn save as filename.

studley wrote:

2)Would it be possible to save the id3 files to a seperate directory instead of (in addition to) the directory with the files?[/color] Similar to above, this would allow for using the tag metadata regardless of filename, artist name, location, etc.

I was actually proposing to write to a seperate directory, but some users may want to write to the same folder that the file lives in. I could either add this as a choice in the settings panel, together with the location to write to, or I could have two seperate menu options:
Save Tag Info with Files
Save Tag Info to Folder
what do you think ?

You could help out MusicBrainz and may get improved performance by changing to the MusicBrainz Mirror

Go to 'Action Settings/MusicBrainz Settings/AutoMatch' and change the value of MusicBrainz Server to:


thats it

Now the problem is that the license will only let me save changes to 50 files at a time. I can't convince my boss that it's worth $20 so I'm stuck doing this over and over for 11,000 mp3s. Any way you would sell me a special license for one day? 

Hi Simon, I think $20 is a fair price to pay (especially if it is being used for commercial work !) - and I doubt very much that you would never need to use the product again after one day. You could always buy a license yourself, and then use it at work
I am just considering the best way to add an interactive tag from musicbrainz
in addition to the fully automated tag currently available, a number of people have requested such an option.

I would be interested in your ideas on how you would expect this to work, and what additional options you would like. Bear in mind that it has to work in the same way whether you are just tagging 10 tracks from the same album or 1000 tracks from different albums.
There was an error in the initial post of Jaikoz 1.7 for OSX. if you have already downloaded Jaikoz 1.7 for OSX before this message was posted (11:50 GMT), please redownload it has now been resolved.

I downloaded the new version and started following your instructions. One thing has changed though. Instead of replacing the "Artist" field, I'd like to replace, what iTunes calls, the "Album Artist" field. I'm pretty sure this field is called "" by Jaikoz. So my first question is, given my change of plans, is there anything different I need to know?

The right-click "Prepend to Right" command is greyed-out for me. Could it be because I'm using the MacOSX version?

Thanks a lot for your help. 

No difference, but prepend to right is only enabled when you have both columns selected, have you only selected fields in one column ?
This was fixed in Jaikoz 1.6.1
Done, release 1.7
This fix has been incorporated into the new release (1.7)
Fixed in Jaikoz 1.7, released today

I'm running OS X and I would really like to be able to Drag and Drop folders into Jaikoz to be loaded.

Drag 'n' drop is difficult to do well in Java at the moment. I was considering
using a browser tree open all the time, what do you think of this idea
