Hi Hendrik

I’m still using Beatunes and I for the first time I’m happy with a music organizing tool!

I have a suggestion that would be very helpful (at least to me) in order to be able to search in groups of playlists:

Would it be possible to see all the audio files contained in the playlists that are inside the same folder just by clicking on the folder??

Maybe I’m wrong but I kind of remember it was possible in a previous version.

Thank you,

Elliot

    Hm.. that should be possible.
    Are you using an iTunes or folder-based library?

    Hi,

    No I’m not. Folder based library.

    Thanks

    It's definitely in the iTunes-based libraries, as that is the way iTunes exports its data. Thinking about it, I don't believe I ever implemented this kind of behavior for folder-based libraries.

    Hmm.. I understand why I was feeling like it was previously working since I started using the iTunes based library...

    If someday you have the chance to implement this it would be great ;)

    It's unfortunately not a trivial feature to implement. We will see...

    Ok :)

    Also a minor bug to report, when I double click (by inadvertance) on the stars of the ratings of any song it launches a other song (all the time the same song is launched and after some time - or some manip - it changes for a new one)

    Thanks for reporting this.
    It will most likely be fixed in v4.5.10.

    Hey there,

    can you please try https://www.beatunes.com/download/beaTunes-4-5-10-SNAPSHOT.dmg ?

    Does it solve the double-click on rating problem you observed?

    Thanks,

    -hendrik

    Hi Hendrick,

    I’ve just tried it and it fixes it in some ways:
    now when I double-click on rating (any of them) it launches from the beginning the song that last played (or that is playing)
    -or
    if I move from the playlist that is (or was last) playing to a other playlist, the double-click on rating will launch the first song of the selected playlist.

    Also I have a question, since I realized that browsing the playlists folders is not possible using the « folder based library » system I’m thinking of going back to iTunes based library (sad because it feels so good to not be using iTunes) but I’m a bit worried to loose a bunch of metadata (like ratings, comments, tags…)
    Do you have an advice?

    Thanks,

    Elliot

    The folder-based library stores all data in its internal database and the audio files. That means they should be picked up by iTunes and an iTunes-based library.

    You might just want to give it a shot and switch back, if it does not work as expected. You can switch libraries in the General preferences.

    Hi Hendrik,

    Ok, I just did it, for your record everything worked well except the « ratings » that all disappeared :( (except the ones that were stored by iTunes)

    I suppose iTunes is storing them in a different way.. Do you think there is a way to get them from the internal data base or the audio files? I can’t loose all the ratings, so much time is involved..

    Thanks!

    Hi Hendrik,

    I found a way concerning the ratings transfer embedded in each audio file to the iTunes library, I did it using « Yate » from developer 2ManyRobots.
    Great app by the way.

    Thanks for all,

    Elliot

    Hi Hendrik,

    I was not using BeaTunes for a while, I just updated to v5 and it seems my key is not working anymore.

    Could you help me with that please?

    Thanks,

    Elliot

    Hey Elliot,

    your beaTunes 4 key only works for beaTunes 4.
    If you'd like to use beaTunes 5, you will have to purchase a discounted ($11.95) upgrade license from https://www.beatunes.com/en/beatunes-buy.html

    If you'd rather go back to version 4, please see http://help.beatunes.com/kb/troubleshooting/downgrade-from-beatunes...

    Cheers,
