  1. Today
  2. Earlier
  3. One feature beyond the obvious that I would love to see would be an ability to export a list of Artists/Albums to a word format. Have been burnt by losing my collection a few times. Thank you.
  4. After using MBA a bit again lately, I have to say the thing most bothering me at this point is how long of a delay there is in between tracks. Sometimes it takes ~5 seconds of delay before the next track starts playing but it is pretty much never instantaneous.. there is always some type of delay. I will say that I am using high quality FLACS which may take longer to load, but it's a bummer when listening to an album where the tracks are supposed to flow smoothly from one to the next without interruption. I remember certain media players giving the option to manually control how long of a pause is in between tracks but I would certainly appreciate having the ability to have no delay at all as an option if not the default setting. I realize this may be more of a technical thing rather than purely a design thing, but there must be a way to get the next track loaded ahead of time and cached so that it is ready by the end of the current track. The other thing that is a bit confusing to me is how the 'Now Playing' functionality works. I have never seen a media player where items are removed from the queue as you go through it. As a frequent example, sometimes I just finish listening to a song and want to remember what it was called, but when I pull up the queue it is no longer there.. Usually when a queue completes, the entire list of items remains so that you can easily start the queue over again. Also, it seems it would make sense if you could add/remove items from the queue list, and rearrange items via click and drag, or trigger a different song in the queue via double click. Are these just things you haven't gotten around to implementing yet or is the Now Playing queue working as intended? If it's a matter of not getting around to it yet, would you by any chance be willing to share what your long term vision is for Now Playing queue functionality? Thanks again for getting the initially reported issue fixed 🙂
  5. I might have to do a Full Windows Reinstall from start,MBA is on my C Drive but all my music is on E Drive. I have been downloading and installing media artwork for months to match my Artists,changing text in albums etc etc Can someone tell me what folders i should be saving before i reinstall so i dont loose all my Artwork and Media text changes etc? I dont want months of work disappearing. Is it as easy as installing Music Box again and dragging my saved C Drive music box folders into the new Windows C install and everything stays the same,with all my changes etc?
  6. Here are some of things that I would like to see. More ways to organize albums. For example, I like audio books separate from my music. I also want to keep my podcasts separate as well. Cover Flow. That was a feature on iTunes I used to love. So Cool. Ways to import Playlists. Very Important. Ways to effect sorting. For example, in a case where you have two albums by different artists with the exact same name. I want them to show as different albums, not all tracks under the album name. Easy ways to edit/change album art inside the program. Ways to link PDF of liner notes to an album. Some way to pull album/artist information from a database. All Music maybe? Also, don't know if you can fix it or not, but Feature is spelled wrong in the thread title.
  7. !Ideas! probably already in the works. (yes i know it's alpha) Playlist and Custom Groups with custom image animated or stills. , Scrolling Lyrics and visualizers. While in big box and or launch box ability to control music from within. Linking to Logitech G510 and Newer keyboard's light with music control. Possible to Bluetooth link as media control device for Google Home, Alexa.
  8. No problem Jason. Thanks for getting back to me. (Much prefer you concentrated on BB anyway, after all, I can't play Frogger on MBA )
  9. MBA is unfortunately still only a desktop app, yes. It's not well suited right now to be used in a cabinet or home theater. We might add a Big Box-style interface in the future, but as of right now, it's primarily just a desktop app.
  10. Hi all, With the advent of being able to have an application on the 'outer' wheel of Big Box I thought I would try and use Music Box as my jukebox software on my arcade cab. For this I would need to be able to control it with my joystick (direction up/down/left/right) and the buttons (Enter, Tab etc). I've just been playing around with Music Box and it looks like it needs to be controlled with the mouse only? Is that the case? Or is there a way to control it with my cabinet buttons ?
  11. cool, thanks for the replies. just wanted to help in case it was a bug
  12. Could be, yeah. Also could be caused by an anti-virus or anti-malware app. I did test the artist image downloads in the latest version just to make sure we don't have a global issue, and they seem to be downloading fine, so it must be something system-specific.
  13. Positive, there's no way I'd take the time to do that haha. I remember being surprised that it found them on my other install. Even for some of the smaller artists. It won't even download new data for the artists it did find. I guess I should have shown that too. Firewall issue maybe?

    IOS app

    Unfortunately our last experience on mobile was not at all a good one, so we're unfortunately not likely to tackle iOS or Android any time soon.
  15. Unfortunately not all artist images are always found. Maybe that's what's going on? It doesn't make sense that an older version would find one while a new version wouldn't though. Are you sure you didn't manually add images for those artists in the older version? I don't think a reinstall will make any difference in that regard.

    IOS app

    Never say never, but i would highly doubt it to be honest.
  17. Bashyman

    IOS app

    Any chance of an IOS app in the future?
  18. Thanks for the reply! I changed computers and when I fresh installed Music Box on the new HD it downloaded about 10% of artist images and won't let me do it manually as you can see above. I plugged in the old drive to see what data was there and all the images were there just fine. I hope I'm not being too confusing. I haven't tried to install again because I wanted to be able to replicate the error for you. I can try to reinstall to see if that will fix it?
  19. Hmm, that's especially odd that they all previously had images, but don't anymore. Do you have images for those artists in your MusicBoxAlpha\Images\Artists folder?

    How About ?

    I honestly really wish I could do this, but unfortunately I don't think it's possible. The cloud music providers generally don't want anyone playing their music outside of their own services, which really sucks. That's the main reason why I dropped them years ago. I am planning to add music videos, but again, there's not much I can do to make it work with the cloud. Noted.

    How About ?

    - Make this also a great Cloudplayer. Means that i can access music from all my clouddrives and personal NAS Systems. - If you add Movie/Video to this would be also appreciated.. i am searching for a cloudplayer which creates Metadata for all my Music/Videos i have stored in the cloud - upnp/dlna support please I so much crave a musicplayer that has access to all my clouddrives and is also able to play local tracks! Thanks for listening
  22. Here's a gif. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. In my previous install all these artists had images without having to do anything manually.
  23. Hey thanks for the reply. So now I am able to rip CD's with MBA. Then I use Cue Splitter and it splits the files to separate tracks. its super quick and has been working great so far. hopefully this helps anyone else with the same issue
  24. Unfortunately it sounds like your car doesn't support "album in a file" albums with cue sheets, which is the format that MBA rips to. It's a much more convenient format than traditional flac files per track, but not everything supports it. Unfortunately you may need to use different software to rip your discs if you need your car supported.
  25. So I just ripped a few albums to test this software. when I try to play the files in my car, it plays each album as one full album not separate tracks. So four CD's just show up as 4 files. Please help
  26. @Bashyman You can indeed add artwork, just right-click on whatever you want to add artwork to. Unfortunately it still doesn't automatically read folder.jpg files though.
