        mpd is only using track replaygain level in random mode. But Non-Album tracks are missing album replaygain level tags!
      • How to fix this? Should I hack mpd somehow or sould I add album replaygain tags for Non-Album tracks?

        fling, so it's not a bug in mpd?
      • fling
        jrobeson: no.
      • jrobeson: from the manpage >> Setting this to "album" will adjust volume using the album's ReplayGain tags, while setting it to "track" will adjust it using the track ReplayGain tags. "auto" uses the track ReplayGain tags if random play is activated otherwise the album ReplayGain tags.

        is VBR or CBR better quality for mp3s. if file size isnt an issue
      • fling
        nbags: cbr with the max possible bitrate
      • nbags: use lame for better quality encoding
      • jrobeson
        is lame still the goto after all these years/
      • wow
      • that's an amazing life span
      • of course.. sadly mp3s are still patent protected until next december :(

      • lazka
        nbags, if file size isn't an issue use flac ;)
      • icebal
        ^
      • nbags
        lazka: yeah flac on my pc. mp3 on ipod
      • i suppose i could convert to alac, never tried that on linux before though. i assume it works??
      • lazka
        makes sense
      • nbags, ffmpeg can afaik

        lazka: nice, its working now! will have to sync my ipod again (~20 hours!)
      • ffmpeg -vn -i $source -acodec alac $dest
      • a log of them are failing though. will need to work on that command string
      • *lot
      • something to do with the flac having extra streams (??)

        nbags: what is the error message?
      • nbags: use -c:a instead of -acodec btw
      • nbags: and put -vn after input
      • ffmpeg -i input -vn -c:a something output
      • Good luck!
      • nbags
        fling: nice!! moving the -vn fixed it
      • fling
        nbags: are you encoding from flac to alac?
      • nbags: use ffprobe to determine if the metadata gets saved
      • nbags
        fling: yes, and yes
      • fling
        Great!
      • nbags

        Freso, yeah i'm familiar with that page. what did you want me to get out of it?
      • i personally wanna use utf8 everywhere, but i'm not the one to convince
      • and in any case, it was difficult to do so on windows without nasty hacks until 3.6
      • or at least i think it covers everything
      • Freso
        jrobeson: I just wanted to make you aware of it in case you weren't already, so you could bump other people in the head with it. :)
      • jrobeson
        the only person who needs convincing is not me :)
      • Freso
        jrobeson: I did not link you to convince you.

        how do I add the "singleton" attribute to an item? I've tried "beets modify singleton=true", "singleton=yes" and
      • "singleton=True"
      • (darn easily-pressable enter key)
      • sampsyo
        kier: You'll want `album_id=`, I think
      • kier
        sampsyo: ah, that did the trick, thanks
