Great job!, I'm waiting for my serial to start trying :)

Then I need information to Automatic Teaser, Make backup of the database, etc.

That data is stored in the database?.
I imagine that the rating, custom fields, last playing (very useful, now the incremental backups will be much more already fast to not modify files when you play :D)

To add teaser click Playlist->Add Teaser. You can set Hook In/Out points in Track Tool, or let RadioBOSS decide what part of track to include in the teaser.

Database is stored in a single file, it's SQLite database - you can backup this file.

Yes, if you switch to using database, all additional information (playcount, rating, gender etc) will be stored in database and music files will not be modified when played.

Yes, I think this feature will be redesigned.

I added russian music in Lybrary and I get an error message.



I use windows 7 x64.
Cancel doesn't work.
I used Task Manager to close Library (Base.exe).

Please click Details and send bug report, this will help in fixing the problem.
Sory, but no Details button. In settings folder is not any bugtrack file.

Small problem:
Customizable field when I use the "&" in the caption of TrackTool, it shows as a "_"
It also happens in the main window (see attached)

Another thing:
Customizable fields should be able to add to the columns of the main list (also MusicLibrary), this would be very useful

Another doubt:
What about tracks that were not migrated to the DB and already contain additional data? When they are reproduced they are migrated to the internal DB?
I have many loose songs that are not in any BD and I do not want to lose the field of last play or the rating

Bug:
(It is not 5.6 but it was already present in 5.5)
When I add a song to the list from the API, the GetPlaylist2 command does not display the metadata, nor the duration. Only the file name

I think it's a good idea. Just as this function is useless. Forget to say that filling sweets should not be mixed either. (Always at the end) :)

Thank you - looks like a bug.

Yes, will be added soon.

You can convert metadata from Music Library: clock Tools->Convert additional info... (be careful when you choose conversion direction).

Where is the DB stored? What is the name of the file? :)
It's one level up from the settings folder: i RadioBOSS click Settings->Open settings folder, then navigate to parent folder, you'll see tracks.db file there (there may also be *wal* files if you have RadioBOSS or any of its modules open - those are temporary files.
