Unable to import playlists

I have a bunch of playlists on my 5.x server, and I thought since the actual files (backups) are in a folder accessible to my 6.x server, that I could just import them, and all would be good. But when I import a playlist manually, or if I import from a backup, nothing happens. No playlists are impor...

Re: https does not work

If you are running this on Linux, you will need to open the 4443 port on the OS firewall.

Upgrading from 5.x to 6.x

Has anyone done this yet? Anything I should be aware of? I'm preparing for an upgrade, hopefully with the next "preview" version of 6.x (7800 is out now, but I'm still on 7760). I know there are differences with the database, but hoping there is a way to migrate the userbase from the old version to ...

Re: Sort Artist with Multiple Albums per Year

Might be able to group a folder by "series", but that would mean you'd have to remove these folders from your main "media folder" and move them to another location outside of that folder structure, then add it in Madsonic as a second (or third, etc...) media folder.

Re: Sort Artist with Multiple Albums per Year

It's sorting by year, from most recent to earliest (in brackets), and then based on the album title in alphabetical order. The only way (that I can think of) to sort the way you are looking for would be either via the "release date" tag in the meta-data (which I am not sure can be done), or by repla...

Re: How to manage music files from madsonic?

You have to manually move the files to one of the media folder locations. What I do in my setup is have the files in one folder (the upload folder), and then run Windows Media Player from my Win10 virtual machine, let it organize and sort the media files into Artist/Album/Title.mp3 format. Once this...

FollowMe issue when connecting to 6.0 server

For some reason, I cannot generate auto playlists via "Follow Me" (Pandora) when I connect to my 6.0 server, however I can do this while connected to my 5.x server, with no issues. Same client software on my Android phone, same music library definitions on both servers, but when I turn on Follow Me ...

Re: external postgres database?

It hasn't been implemented yet, as Madsonic 6.x is still in "beta" stages. I believe once it reaches full release, the external database feature will be included.

Hi Everyone, I thought I could put my talents to good use, and I have decided to create a user guide for Madsonic, with instructions on how to install from scratch, upgrade from an older version, etc....

Mobile app bug?

I'm running both a 5.x and a 6.x server, and when I choose the "Follow Me" feature, it works fine when I'm connected to the 5.x server, however it does not work at all when I am connected to my 6.x server. Wondering if it's an issue with the mobile app, or if there's some setting I'm missing on my 6...

Compiling a list of bugs I have found so far: 1) "Random" option on home screen does not show anything. 2) "X" Row / "X" Column option (from any of the other options) will instead "wrap" to fill the middle frame (ie, on my browser window, it shows 3 rows of 4 instead of 2 rows of 6).

Get the same error on 6.0.7450. Probably the same version of ffmpeg.exe causing the error.

Re: Madsonic Newsletter 09/2015

I have build 5.2.5400, which I understand is a dead branch (upgraded to 6.x, I believe). I see there is a new build 5.1.5260 - will this version mess up my 5.2.5400? If I download only the WAR version, install, and restart Madsonic, will Madsonic still detect the 5.2.5400 as the latest version and u...

Re: Can't edit user permissions

Updated Java from 1.7 to 1.8 (latest build), and still have the error.

I am seeing that the error is in the USER_SETTINGS table. Is there any way to export this table to a text file, clear it out, and then import the text file back into the table?

Running 7200 version on Win10, 64-bit. Two issues actually - 1) The right-frame will show the "Now Playing" song on any browser, but does not "hide" the frame when it is not needed. There is no way to make the right frame auto-hide. 2) When viewing the "Media Folders" settings, hovering over the que...
