Wishlist / Scan a folder and compare it with the whole library
« on: February 24, 2010, 16:00:40 »
Hi!  I've just discovered your wonderful program, and I like it very much.  However, IMO, an important feature is missing.  It should be possible to scan a folder (for example containing a new album) and to compare it with the (already scanned) rest of the library, without displaying the dupes in the library itself.

The goal is to quickly analyse if the folder you are about to add to your library contains dupes already present in the library.  For example, this feature could be very useful when you add a "best of" compilation but you have already the complete collection of the same artist.  Similarity could easily detect all dupes and the user will be able to keep only the "previously unreleased" songs from the compilation.

Also, I would like to be able to call Similarity from the command line, to tell it to scan the folder or a single song, and to compare it with the library.  That way, Similarity will be easily integrated with any good player such as Foobar2000 (via its "run service" plugin).  I suggest a syntax such as:
similarity.exe /scan "folder_or_song" /library "base_library_folder"

Anyway, your program is already extremely useful.  Keep up the good work!
