Hi Paul,

I am running Win7 x64 but I (apparently) fixed the problem last night when i deleted the settings file. sorry to bother you.

Cheers,

I uninstalled java then tried reinstalling it which seemed to go ok but when i tried to use Jaikoz later jaikoz wouldn't start up. Actually if i look at background processes i can see that it starts then closes w/o coming to the foreground. I had an older version of Jaikoz so i tried upgrading to the newest version but no difference. I am not sure where to go from here so any help would really be appreciated!

Cheers,

I just found out (http://www.jaikoz.com/jaikozforum/posts/list/6540.page#13465) that there isn't really a way to do custom filtering which was kind of a surprise to me considering all the functionality that Jaikoz has. It woul be *really* useful to be able to do filtering like say in Foobar2000 (which i am now using in combination with Jaikoz) that would be a really powerful thing and very helpful as well.

Cheers,

I'm afraid it always prefers Ogg Vorbis to Mp3. What you could do is just use the Filters menu to let Jaikoz show you the duplicates, then you can decide which ones to delete yourself.

There a number of filters available, but you cannot create custom ones, however you can filter results further by using the filter/search box 


Doh that is really too bad. I had started off doing it manually but it was taking me forever hence my posting. As for the filters I will head over to the wishlist part of the forum

Thanks for the prompt reply,

Jaikoz can match over different formats, i.e mp3 and mp4. So the first criteria is worst quality format (i.e mp3 is worse quality than flac), if the format is the same then it uses bit rate, if that is the same the choice is essentially arbitary. 


Hi, I was sifting through my collection again to get rid of some duplicates and I noticed that Jaikoz was sometimes selecting (for example) 192kbps and 256kbps mp3 duplicates for deletion over 128kbps ogg files. I have heard that ogg is a bit better but is a 128kbps ogg/vorbis audio file really higher quality than a 256kbps MPEG-1 lay3 audio file or is this a bug?

Also along the lines of finding duplicates, is it possible to make up custom filters? For examples:
just show Mp3s with kbps of 128 or less?

or

Got it, thanks!
Hi, I am going through my collection to try to get rid of duplicates with Jaikoz and understand how it finds dups based on IDs but it is not clear to me when it files a file with duplicate ids what criteria it uses to delete. So my question is what criteria does Jaikoz use to select which file to delete like bit rates or file types etc. I am hoping there is a way to have it select the file with the lower bit rate to delete but just want to be sure before i start.

Any clarification would be appreciated!

Hi Alfg, sorry i should have posted, i figured it out, for whatever reason Java was not adding itself to the system path so i just included it in the environment variables and viola, it worked.

Thanks,

Hi gamehints, were you able to resolve this error? I am having the same issue (though not using an RC). It seems Java is installing but not staying resident in memory, but i have no idea how to resolve this.

anyone out there have this problem (and the resolution?)

cheers

I have some files that jaikoz is not able to add acoustic fingerprints to, i assume this is due to some sort of file corruption. I have checked out a few mp3 repairing programs that can read playlist files and wanted to save a list of the problem files to a playlist file but i can't figure out how to do it in jaikoz (the export to excel was easy enough but i need some sort of playlist [pls or m3u] file). Does anyone have any suggestions or work around ideas?

Any help wold really be appreciated!

Cheers

Hi, I am also having problems with

In the concole i get the following error for a variety of tracks:

Nov 8, 2008 8:15:00 PM: WARNING: Unable to retrieve an acoustic id for song 36 fileG:\My Music\Chumbawamba-Amnesia.mp3, because this track cannot be analysed
Nov 8, 2008 8:15:00 PM: INFO: Retrieved 0 acoustic ids successfully
Nov 8, 2008 8:15:00 PM: INFO: Unable to find a match for 1 tags
Nov 8, 2008 8:15:00 PM: INFO: Completed retrieval of Acoustic Ids for 1 files

Its a pretty good quality file, fairly popular, a few minutes long, and i am using a a bought copy of Jaikoz for windows. Any thoughts on how i could fix this? (it is also happening for other similar files).

Thanks in advance,

-Gaiko
No internal database yet eh? Oh well, you are right i can do it in chunks i was just hoping for the database option.

As for the PUIDs great, as for the trying five times the "hicups" here can last for awhile.

Thanks for such a quick response!

Cheers

hi I am unclear about the Dicogs URL & musicbrainz part. I have been trying to autocorrect via musicbrainz but it never updates the discogs URL (and i have it set to always update this feild) or any of the other feilds in the relations tab (it does occasionally but i would say that it does so less than 1 out every 15 songs). Actually i wonder if i am doing something wrong in general because it only updates a very few of the files artwork. Any thoughts on this would be appriciated!

Cheers

PS Not sure if it is useful but i am using XP and v2.6.1
Hi, i have a collection of about 18,000 songs that i want to streamline (uniform naming, fill in missing id3 info, add embedded album art, etc). After goring through the reviews and such i settled on Jaikoz and bought it yesterday. I have been playing around with it and the learning curve seems to be steep (just because there are soooo many options, a good thing) so I have been comming up with questions.

One of the first things i am trying to figure out is if J can just remember the files it loaded last time? Having it load up 18,000 files each time takes up quite a bit of time.

Also, i work in development (ie develoing countries, Azerbaijan at the moment) but am lucky enough to actually have an internet connection BUT its flakey (the connection that is). Is there a way that Jaikoz can download the MusicIP or PUIDs (sorry, i am trying to get the terminology straight) and keep them? Or is it already doing that? (i think i read that it stores the puid in the music file but am not sure of this). I ask because i guess i can select a few files at a time to identify but if they don't retain the info then i will never get it done (because the connection sometimes cuts out).

Thanks in advance!

Cheers
