Ubuntu Multimedia :: Change Artist/album/genre On Music Files?

Apr 6, 2010

I'm trying to figure out how to change information on audio files. On Rhythmbox, for example, the genre or artist information might be incorrect, or unknown. Thus far i can't find a way to change this info.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Exaile Rc 3.2 Again No Sorting By Album Artist

Jun 16, 2010

I was glad to see another release of exaile. I'm always happy to see improving mainstream desktop apps, especially when they start being much superior to their commercial counterparts in both, quality and quantity, of features. But as if developers are ignoring the simple usability problems - again - exaile like all other gnome music players (apart from amarok, but that's kde!) can't browse your library by album artist!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Change Album Art In Rhythmbox / Enable This?

Jan 21, 2010

I'm trying to reorganize my files and organize my music on Rhythmbox, but I've run into a really annoying problem. The cover art for one song on a particular album isn't right. All the other songs in the album are displaying properly.

I have the album cover in the same folder that the music is in with the name "Cover.jpg".

I've tried about everything I can think of. I've tried renaming the image file, tried dragging it to the album art area in the player, and I've tried moving it to the Rhythmbox folder under the name "~/.gnome2/rhythmbox/covers/Artist Name - Album Name.jpg" (Of course inserting the correct album name and artist name exactly the way it is shown in Rhythmbox). It will change if I drag and drop it, but once I go back and play the song again, it will revert to the wrong cover art.

General :: Media Player - None Of The Downloaded Music And Lists The Songs In Each Album Backwards

Nov 24, 2010

Let me begin by saying that I'm a "casual user" of my computer (I'm a retiree who uses her 'machine' for email, looking up mostly useless info, & pretending to be a writer). However, migraines from beating my head on the keyboard in frustration over Windows eccentricities led me straight to Linux. Linux blows windows out of the water, IMO.

Except for Media Players. I have tried every one in Ubuntu's software catalog. Rhythmbox is the only one that works, & it doesn't work correctly. I use my computer as my primary music source, & have saved nearly 200 albums/CDs to it. I transferred my collection to a memory stick, then tried to transfer it to Ubuntu. Rhythmbox 'accepted' most but not all albums, but none of the downloaded music, & lists the songs in each album backwards. When I open an album, sometimes Rhythmbox plays them backwards, sometimes (rarely) 'frontwards', but usually, jumps around, plays a few of the numbers, then stops. Occasionally, it goes through the collection, playing one song from each collection.

I was able to transfer the entire collection to 'Listen' media player, but it doesn't actually play anything, & I never even got that far with any other player. I have a two year-old HP Compaq Presario desktop w/ 500GB, (300 to Ubuntu & the rest to The Dreaded Windows for some stuff I can't run on Linux). I began with running Ubuntu 10.04 on 'wubi', then installed it from a CD I burned from the Ubuntu site. Someone suggested I had screwed something up during downloading, so I got 10.04 on a CD (w/ "Ubuntu for Non-Geeks"), but had the same media player problems. Last month I upgraded to 10.10, but still have the same problems.

General :: Transfer Album Art Images To Cowon IAudio 9 Mp3 Player With System Music Software?

Mar 23, 2011

I have got a Cowon iAudio 9 music player and want to display the album art images of the albums on it. The player does support this feature but only when there is a *.jpg file inside of the album folder or the image is embedded into the music file itself (did not tried that).

At the moment I'm using banshee as music management software and I like it. The album art is downloaded automatically for each album and when the player is connected it is beeing recognized and I can drag & drop albums or single songs.

The only problem is that the album art is not transfered along with the albums. The player does support MTP and MSC usb connections and is mounted as removeable usb drive to the system (Ubuntu 10.10). I would be glad if there's a solution to do that with banshee but other software solutions are welcome too.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Replace Amazon MP3 Artist Tags With Composer Information?

Mar 28, 2011

I recently downloaded several MP3 albums from Amazon. Most of these albums contain works from several different composers. The problem is, the Rhythmbox music player in Ubuntu Maverick won't display composer tags. I am therefore searching for a way to overwrite the artist tag of each file with the composer info. This overwriting would need to be a batch process.

Let's say that I have an album of the New York Philharmonic performing works of a dozen different composers.I would like for the correct composer to overwrite New York Philharmonic in each file. Is it possible to use a program such as EasyTag do what I need? Please provide detailed instructions and/or a link to such details.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Script To Shuffle Music Files?

Jan 27, 2010

how I can shuffle my MP3 files before I drag them on to my player? My little D-Wave MP3/4 player does not shuffle songs. This can be a little boring. I use Banshee to drag and drop songs to it without any problems and Banshee will play the tracks randomly.

I did see a thread on the Forum recently which looked like it would shuffle the files in a directory but I have not been able to find it again.

My system is:

Banshee 1.6
CPU AMD64 X2 5200+
Drive 160G
Chipset GeForce 6100 nForce 405

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Set Genre Of A MP3 File To "Podcast"?

I've downloaded some podcast files and I wonder how to set the genre field of their ID3 to "Podcast"? so that my phone can detect them as podcasts and play them in its media player.
I used ID3v2, ID3, ID3tool and blah, blah, blah! but all of them have a big hug list of know genres except the Podcast genre. And you can not choose a genre which is not in their list.
All I want is an ID3 tool to set the genre field of a MP3 file to exact word I want.

Ubuntu Servers :: Mdadm Music Corruption - Link ITunes Library To The Music Files Via A Samba Share?

Dec 19, 2010

I've been building my digital music collection for some time and used to house it on a local drive with no quality issues. A while back I built myself a file server using ubuntu and mdadm in a raid1 configuration to protect against potential drive failure. I link my iTunes library to the music files via a samba share and everything works great on the surface. I've started to notice that random songs are becoming corrupted with pops clicks and silent pauses. I'll even re-download an album and notice that it's corrupted a few weeks later. Now I'm at a loss to what is causing this issue; I ignored it at first but it seems to be getting worse and more widespread as time goes on.

Do you think this could be caused by mdadm? It reports that all is fine via 'cat /process/mdstat' but I wouldn't know where to look or what to look for if there were syncing issues. The other possibility is that I have iTunes set to keep my music folder organized for me, but I've never heard of it actually corrupting the files it shuffles around. The bottom line is that my library is getting crappier as time goes on and I cannot stand for that!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Removing Embedded Album Art

Feb 26, 2011

I use EasyTAG to edit the tags of my music. I believed I could also use EasyTAG to remove embedded album art, but this is not entirely the case.EasyTAG appears able to remove references to an embedded image so that the image will not appear in audio players and tag editors. However, the image must still exist within the audio file because the file size remains exactly the same. Contrast this with Mp3tag where removing album art also decreases the audio file's size.My question: is this a bug on EasyTAG's part? If so, what Linux program could I use instead?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Delete Rhythmbox Album Art?

Apr 29, 2011

I use my ubuntu machine as a media player, and I'm using Rhythmbox for music. I still rip my cd's in Windows so when I get them to Linux I delete the cover art in the CD's map since I don't really care about the "coolness" factor .

Anyway, on some of the cd's there is still an album cover,(most of them downloaded from Jamendo) but searching ".jpg" in the music folder doesn't show the cover art. Is there any place where Rhythmbox stores the Album art so I can delete it? I'm using Ubuntu 10.04.
