I fully agree, in genre, number and degree!It's possible to turn off Windows Defender but it does not affect RadioBOSS a lot, and turning it off leaves your PC unprotected which is not good. There are cases when it's a good idea, e.g. if a PC is an isolated machine used solely for streaming, but if it's a computer where you browse the net, and perform other tasks, you should keep the Defender operating. At least, it's better than most 3rd party antiviruses (my personal opinion, other people may not agree).
Wow, that's a lot. I'm afraid adding a combobox option is not viable as this will lead to a parallel/duplicate code for the same thing. We'll see if improving the menu in terms of adding the scroll bar and mouse wheel scroll is possible.We have 58, with 37 visible before scrolling is needed. Combo box would be better for our purpose. I don't mind if it's added to advanced features and we need to switch it on
IIRC, internally, makelibrary task runs with lower priority - I'll double check that. But if you run multiple taks, it can be a problem as calculating BPM or Normalizing are CPU intensive tasks. I suppose you should run makelibrary tasks in sequence, not all at the same time.We'll alter our scripts accordingly to reduce hitting RadioBOSS as hard as we were, but just thought I'd flag it in case you wanted to consider rate limiting with API calls, or limiting the API process to a certain amount of CPU etc.
Yes, this is how it works - it actually "makes" library, clearing it and adding all tracks again. Such approach ensures the database is in the actual state.With the 'makelibrary' database update process using MySQL, it appears to delete the item out of the database and then replace it again.
Yes, makes sense, especially for the large libraries. I'll add it to our to-do list, maybe a new command will be introduced to just "update" the library without recreating it from scratch.Is there a way we can change it to only add in tracks that are missing from the database, or only remove items where the files are no longer present? In other words, update instead of delete/add?

We have the drill down capability (select library + search) because the old software we used previously had the same thing, so it was a transitional reason (buy in from the presenters) why we still have a lot of librariesWow, that's a lot
A new command works. We're sticking with not updating the BPM for the moment. We'll just do an initial BPM count, then run the makelibrary updates per day without BPM included in the task, to ensure everything is synchronised. It's a little bit slower than it used to be with XML files, but not too slow that it causes any concernYes, makes sense, especially for the large libraries. I'll add it to our to-do list, maybe a new command will be introduced to just "update" the library without recreating it from scratch.
