      • elGALLO
        remotely vnc for this, generally 16 flax is understood as 44
      • 24 is rarer so I prefer to differentiate
      • bens218
        i want to differentiate because of conversion to my DAP
      • elGALLO
        Ah so sunce its python it doesnt know what $samplerste it and has to read it as a string
      • bens218
        using different conversion settings
      • beets will read it, i use 'beet convert -f custom-format samplerate:96000'
      • i just can't use the -a switch with convert
      • Freso
        Because $samplerate is file specific. An album could easily be mix of different samplerates. Or even different formats.
      • Freso has downloaded some official releases that were a mix of WAV, MP3, and WMAs...
      • bens218
        yea i know that, where it becomes an issue for me is when i want the convert plugin to copy album art
      • it only does this with -a switch, otherwise i have to embded album art into every converted file
      • time to clock out for the day, take care

        does beets need to be run as root?
      • jrobeson
        no
      • you should likely never run beets as root
      • people often install beets as root (via pip or their package manager), bu it should never been run like that
      • Guest56994
        if I don't run it with sudo I get an error that looks to be with the discogs plugin
      • jrobeson
        do you evne have that plugin turned on?
      • if so, try it without the plugin. see if it works
      • then put the error message on a pastebin
      • Guest56994
      • runs with discogs disabled
      • should also mention that I am running this under a debian chroot install on my synology
      • i've got the discogs-client package installed
      • jrobeson
        that probably has something to do with it
      • you need to upgrade your requests package
      • the debian version of requests is too old
      • so install a new one with pip
      • uggh debian.. stop ruining my life :(
      • Guest56994
        : / sorry bro
      • jrobeson
        the problem is debian
      • debian is toooo oooollldddd
      • so get a newer version of requests and hopefully it'll work
      • Guest56994
        i'll give that a shot
      • jrobeson
        this is exactly where debian's oldness is really a problem though. when things change on remote end like various internet services
      • usually it works out ok.. but not in those cases
      • Guest56994
        yea that makes sense
      • requests was a super outdated version
      • updated and looks to be working as expected
      • jrobeson
        what version was it?
      • Guest56994
        2.12.2
      • updated to 2.4.3
      • jrobeson
        I"m gonna file a bug, now that I know which version is in debian
      • Guest24796, how did you update it exacdtly? via pip?
      • Guest56994
        yea
      • pip install requests --upgrade
      • Guest24796
        wrong guest ping there
      • :P
      • Guest56994
        haha
      • downfall of using the freenode web irc
      • NOTICE: [beets] jrobeson opened issue #2296: Bail out if the version of requests is too old https://github.com/beetbox/beets/issues/2296

        Hi music geeks,
      • I need good configuration scheme for beets.
      • Right now as per my config musicbrainz picard is detecting more accurately than beets.
      • any solution to meet the requirements ?
      • dograt has quit
      • jrobeson
        you haven't really said any requirements

        i want beets like to be picard.
      • that's the requirement for me.

        Mowgli: did you try acoustid a try?
      • Using the chroma plugin
      • Mowgli
        I configured it.
      • nathdwek
        And what differences in accuracy do you notice compared to picard?
      • Mowgli
        The same library set I used for picard and beets.
      • jrobeson
        that's not an answer.
      • also you're assuming that all of us have used picard.
      • I've never used it
      • Mowgli
        picard detects 26 albums beets detects 19 only
      • jrobeson
        beets has never not detected an album that wasn't in musicbrainz, so I definitely don't have a similiar experience
      • nathdwek
        So there are 7 albums for which beets doesn't have a single clue?
      • Mowgli
        yeah,
      • nathdwek
        or you mean there are 7 albums where there is no single best choice, but 2-4 90+ matches?
      • Mowgli
        @nathdwek: no single best choice
      • jrobeson
        please start getting more specific
      • nathdwek
        Well then that shouldn't be a problem right?
      • I mean just choose that one that seems right, and move on
      • Mowgli
        jrobeson: It's a graphical user interface and automatic music tagger from musicbrainz
      • jrobeson
        i know what it is
