    [Support] Linuxserver.io - Beets

    This is great! Very clear how I can get a second or third library within the same docker. I can leave config.yaml for the first primary library. And then add a second config2.yaml with musiclibrary2.blb and different paths for the second one. Less worried about the state.pickle as I won't need the resume feature. Let me also update on what I figured out in the meantime: I can use the MBZ local mirror as long as the docker is set up on the same IP as the Beets docker. It is not supported to have the two dockers on different IPs. _releasecomment tag does not seem to be supported to define paths. Changing tags via "$set" also is not supported (yet). Mbsync seems to be a great plugin. I am surprised it makes changes even right after an "import" as I'd anticipated it would be identical after the import. Anyhow, mbsync works quite fast, so this is great! Disabling chroma solved a log of the issues I was having. I figured out "-i" feature, which is great to import only albums that are not yet in the library. I haven't figured out yet the permission issue the docker is creating when importing, but I believe it is somehow related to user shares. I'll keep on trouble-shooting. I am still less clear whether Beets allows me to have albums in different folders as part of one library (i.e., when not using move/copy), but I should be able to figure this out.

    Fair point. Thanks for all the help!

    [Support] Linuxserver.io - Musicbrainz

    It took me over a year since your reply, but I now indeed turned into an active user of beets. I am running beets on same local IP as Unraid (bridge mode). I am running MBZ docker on a separate local IP (br0 mode). Beets is working well, but I cannot get it to use the MBZ docker. I followed the configuration (https://beets.readthedocs.io/en/v1.3.17/reference/config.html#musicbrainz-options) and added MBZ info (musicbrainz: host: docker-IP:5000 ratelimit: 100). Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be working and Beets docker cannot access MBZ docker. Any thoughts?

    Mirror and permission seems to be docker specific issues? The local scan is in the documentation, but not clear to me. Multiple library seems to be supported, but i cannot find the documentation.

    Any thoughts on above? If a new appdate is the only way, how would I go ahead with it without losing all dockers / settings?

    Terrific, thanks, getting there! I am aware of this, but I don't want to specify the album. Is there a way that Beets can keep memory of the files already in library. And then pick up the new files through an import or update of some form? I actually have the local mirror already up and running. It works flawless and I have been using it together with Picard well. For some reasons, I cannot get it to work with Beets though. I added the following in my config file without success: musicbrainz: host: ratelimit: 100 The files are still ok as long as they are in the importfolder. They change permission after being moved from importfolder to musiclibrary folder. I believe this is done by Beets? Still worth checking otherwise? What could be set wrongly in Beets? And another one: can beets handle more than one library?

    And another two 5) I read through all the tags, but didn't find a way to let beets tell me what albums in beets are incomplete (i.e., 14 files for an album tagged for a release with 15 tracks; or looking for albums that miss artwork or a MBZ release ID) 6) Possible to configure somewhere what coverart will be download / embedded? Also including fanart.tv with respective API? Thanks a ton. I am turning into a big fan of beets and this docker!

    [Support] Linuxserver.io - Beets

    Thanks. I wasn't aware of this feature and it seems interesting. Reading the link you've sent. Mbsync is also a great plugin. Does it work with the docker and how it is different from beet update? Having said this, above actually does not answer my question and is not what I am looking for. Let me describe what I mean with more color: /importfolder/ [mapped via docker] /importfolder/Abba-Album1 /libraryfolder/ [mapped via docker] When I use "beet import /import", the album gets tagged and moved (I have move=yes in config). Folder then looks like below: /importfolder/ /libraryfolder/Abba-Album1 I'll now add an album to "/libraryfolder" directly. Either not tagged or maybe including some tags from itunes. /importfolder/ /libraryfolder/Abba-Album1 /libraryfolder/Abba-Album2 Abba-Album2 is now not part of my beets library as it was not imported through Beets. Is there a way to get Abba-Album2 to my library without importing it through the "importfolder" and without retagging Abba-Album1 (already in my beets library and already tagged). Does it make it clearer that I am trying to accomplish? Beets queries musicbrainz API heavily when importing a large library. I have a local mirror of musicbrainz, so would hope to reduce load for musicbrainz.org by using it instead. I've run "docker safe new perms". That's how I get music files to work after running beets. But that's obviously not the idea to run the command every time after I use beets PUID/PGID are set correctly. Any other ideas what I could check? Both linked folders are on the array.

    And yet another Q 4) If I import music files via beets (docker), I have a permission issue. Imported files in the new folder don't have RW permission. Is there a setting in the docker that I need to change?

    And one more 3) I'd tried to use my MBZ mirror to run things locally. Didn't get this to work. Any idea what to do?

    Brilliant, thanks a lot. Now, it seems to be working much better. I have a few more questions: 1) I used to tag my releases under the release name with release comment via a script ($set(album,%album%$if(%_releasecomment%, \(%_releasecomment%\)))). is this also possible with beets? 2) Can I tag with beets without "import". I.e., I have a music library folder that includes all my beets tagged music. I'd like to directly add to this folder and than tag with beets (instead of placing files in a separate and have beets move/import them to the library. Is this possible? If so, does it change folder names to match artist? Thanks!

    First of all, thanks for the docker. This is great! It is working ok, but I am facing two issues: 1) Quite often, I am receiving the error message "fingerprinting of 'XXX' failed: audio could not be decoded. I checked the respective files and they play well, so there is no file corruption 2) I am getting other related error messages at times, which I can post, but likely are connected to the first Any thoughts? As a quick fix, how to turn off fingerprinting? It's not as critical, is it?

    Can you elaborate what you are doing?

    MinimServer docker problem

    I'd really love to get this working, but still struggle I installed MinimWatch on windows. Tray icon stays grey though. Any thoughts? Where to accept the T&C?
