Wishlist / Link to duplicate when deleting
« on: January 04, 2013, 17:26:07 »
to keep album information complete although duplicates are deleted
- add a textfile with a link to the original and/or
- a link to the original

I just worked with Jaikoz and they store some time consuming information like accoustic fingerprints and Musicbrainz ID into the file.
The next time it is not required to calculate that stuff again.

Also maybe Similarity coud utilize already stored IDs OR if they are sufficient in quality use them for precise comparison instead.

Also a cooperation with e.g. Jaikoz may be interesting as YOU make the best duplettes checking :-) !

I often loose the information when mp3 are moved or similarity cache is cleared.
If not too big it may make sense to put it into mp3 properties.

I did some investigations :-)
for automark sorting by ... results in ... (threshold all off, ">" means when first criteria was equal, next criteria):
- Bitrate: OK
- Duration: mainly works, except:
- duration > bitrate : in some cases duration is equal (to milli second), than Bitrate is not evaluated correctly (flac with high bitrate was not considered)
-  duration > size: also size not considered correctly (when mp3/flac mixed)
- size: OK
- format: OK
- format > rating: error, seems to mark sometimes high and low ratings...
- tags?? where is it displayed. %tags means degree of identical tags, not completeness?!?

In your documentation it says either good or bad items may be marked, but I think always bad shall me marked for later deletion?!

Please, need Help! wanted to sort all my stuff during christmas holiday :-(

Bugs / [SOLVED] Please Help: Automark ignores mark priority

I like to mark worse songs, so my top priority is "rating".
Help says it is marking files with lowest rating.
That worked well for most of files, but a significant number of files is incorrectly marked (see attachment).
It looks like Bitrate has been given higher priority than rating?!

I think it is OK!
Otherwise you cleanup your collection and don't buy the program => no progress

It only happens if CACHE is very big.

=> Similartity should show a screen "please wait" and hourglass.

The same applies if Similarity starts.

Here it takes 30s without saying anything!

better you try a CUDA compatible card.
I got a GTX460 especially for that purpose...

Bugs / Similarity shows Doubles of files that do not exist
« on: May 01, 2011, 14:19:32 »
I tried several times scans with using groups.
Now it finds 165 doublettes, but the ALL files in group2 do not exist.
The logs show that those files were not opened. I do not know why they were scanned, as they do not exist as file.
This scan took me almost a week now because several times Silarity just froze... and I had to restart.
Also I still do not know which order and configuration for the decoders is most robust.
Any idea?

Bugs / Number of files is reduced and then stops
« on: April 22, 2011, 20:12:44 »
It starts scanning, lets say 5000 files, then quickly reduces number of files to e.g. 300.
Log is telling me:
Open failed "...Dxyz.mp3", no suitable decoder
Next time I end similarity and start again it is working w/o any changes made.

Edit: Added some decoders, did not work.
Did restart Windows => worked..


Wishlist / Re: Good default settings
« on: April 22, 2011, 11:24:34 »
well, if you go below 85% many life versions or different language versions are treated as same...
but meanwhile I use 85%. That results in 1% more findings than using 90%.

Bugs / Re: Similarity stops scanning after a few songs
« on: April 20, 2011, 20:50:56 »
OK, but sorry to say, the help does not explain why more than one decoder is used for MP3.
Shouldn't just one do?
Anyway in the meantime I reduced and changed a lot (see picture) and this seems to work without problems till now.

Why don't you recommend those or similar settings as default?
Otherwise so many problems occour and many users just feel Similarity is too faulty?!

Yes, same problems with 1.5.4 beta

Actually the manual does not really describe the details..
How do I know which converter is doing what?
From your picture it looks like many are doing mp3?! What is the purpose?
May I change all "*" to Mp3 although I also got flac, ape, mv, ogg?
