Ubuntu Multimedia :: Modify Folder Hierarchy For Importing Music?

Jun 16, 2010

I dual-boot, and in Windows, I use an awesome program for music maintenance called MediaMonkey, which sadly, isn't Open Source, but still awesome nonetheless. Anyway, one of the things it lets you do is sort and import your libraries by practically any format you could find imaginable. I have that program setup to import and store my music in the following format:

G:Tunes<Genre><Album Artist><Album><Track Number> - <Track Artist> - <Track Title>.<Extension>

Is there a way to change the default setups in whatever music program I choose to use? It seems to be the same no matter what program I use if it's a GNOME-based program. I've used Banshee and Rhythmbox, but both only leave me with the following options:

Album Artist/Album/
Album Artist/Album Artist - Album/
Album Artist/Album (Year)
Album Artist

General :: Copy Folder Hierarchy / Recreate All Folders From One Directory Without Copying Over Contents Of Folder?

Jul 2, 2010

Is there a way to recreate all the folders from one directory to another without copying over the contents of the folder? I've been trying to do something like this,

Code:for i in `ls $X`; do mkdir $PATH/$i; doneUnfortunately $i is deliminated by whitespaces in the filenames and not the actual folders.

$X contains only other folders so I dont have to worry about regular files but any kind of more "advanced" solution would work.

Ubuntu :: Banshee / All IPod 5G-music Is Displayed Under Video Folder / Music Folder Is Empty

Mar 20, 2011

At the moment I use Rhythmbox to acces my music and my iPod 5G. I would however like to use Banshee, but in Banshee all my iPod 5G-music is displayed under the video folder, while the music folder is empty. Any idea why?And also I have several albums with different artists on them, which gets spread out on i.e. 10 single albums even though they belong to the same album. This happens - as far as I can tell - after I've accessed the iPod from Rhythmbox (which is part of the reason why I wanna use Banshee).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Banshee Does Not "watch" Music Folder / See That?

Jun 18, 2011

Banshee does not watch the Music folder. I add music to my music folder and I have to rescan the music library every time to get Banshee to see it. I thought the library plugin was supposed to to that.

How do I get it to watch it so I don't have to rescan every single time?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Every Music Player Wants To Stream Music?

Apr 19, 2010

I've had an awkward problem lately: every music player I use wants to instead of play music from my USB external hard drive, stream music from it. I have no idea why it suddenly started doing that. It may have been an accidental key-combo I pressed, thinking I had another window targeted and didn't bother pressing it again for my Totem music player. So I closed out of Totem in hopes that Rythmbox would work like totem used to. Well, it doesn't. It wants to stream music now.The problem with the streaming music is trivial, but here it is: I have a playlist with a little over 300 songs. I have Totem set to shuffle and repeat my music. Streaming music with it makes it just stop randomly after a few songs, and when I try to pause music and play it later it takes a good 30 seconds before it kicks back in at the beginning of the song.Like I always ask because I don't know enough to give back to the community yet, can anyone help me? Thanks.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Shotwell Crashes When Importing?

I tried searching but have not gotten any solid answer to resolve it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Importing AVCHD Files

Nov 25, 2010

When importing files from my digital camera, I find it less confusing to open a folder and then drag the files to where I want them on my hard drive rather than to have Shotwell do it automatically (as described by jennacav in this post). That's straightforward for photo files, but what about for video files? On my camera, they are stored in an AVCHD folder, which itself has several folders and subfolders. Does this mean that I have to drag the files over as a group, or is there some way they can be handled individually as photos can be? (I'm new to both Ubuntu and digital photography.....)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Importing ICM Profile - Whole Monitor Calibration

Nov 25, 2010

I've got a new monitor which has a .icm profile on the CD. I would like to calibrate my monitor and found lprof. It's got a nice GUI but to someone new to the whole monitor calibration ballgame it's not that easy to work out. Is there a way I can simply import the .icm profile? Is that enough, or do I need to do more set-up after that? Do the changes in lprof affect everything that appears on my screen? (I mean, once it's set-up, I don't have to apply anything to various applications like gimp/digicam?)

General :: Mounting A Partition As Music Folder In Ubuntu 10.4

Sep 6, 2010

I have installed a new hard drive and partitioned some space that I am wanting to use for keeping my Music files on. I have entered a line into the /etc/fstab file that I believe mounts the partition properly, but it is giving root owner ship of the partition. Is there a better way of doing this? perhaps mounting the drive some where else and using a hard link? the line I have so far in my fstab is

/dev/sdb1 /home/me/Music ext4 defaults,user 0 2

But this is still sowing the drive on my desktop, it also replaces the the name of Music in my places with the fact that it is a drive of such a size.

General :: How To Rename Music Folder Indicating Bitrate

May 3, 2011

I have a large collection of music albums sorted in folders which are named like this: "Zombie Ritual - 2004 - Night Of The Zombie Party" (%{artist} - %{year} - %{album}). I want to rename them so as to be indicative of the bitrate, for example, "Zombie Ritual - 2004 - Night Of The Zombie Party" => "Zombie Ritual - 2004 - Night Of The Zombie Party (@320)". It will be hard to do this manually. I tried to use EasyTag and Kid3 to do this, but they cannot add bitrate to tags.
