Any updated regarding this? When will it be implemented?

Winyl - Skins / Re: Pink Mist
« on: May 31, 2014, 05:57:18 PM »
First attempt at making a Winyl skin. It's based on Dark Skin by MK Design.

I like it, except for two things - fonts too small, and letters instead of icons (C, B, L, etc.), but it's a great for first skin.

Yes. RC3 fixed the bug!
Indeed I have both options "Save lyrics.." & "embed lyrics.." turned on.

Thank you for the quick fix.

Simple steps:
1). find a song that you want to edit.
2). go to -> properties.
3). change some fields.
4). press "save".
5). verify if change was saved (I open the properties again, to check this).

* I tried Title, Artists, "Album Artists", and Comment fields.
* The files are not write protected; editing them from windows shell or other software (mp3tag) works.

Winyl - Bug Reports / Winyl 3.0 RC1 - Can't modify mp3 tags
« on: May 05, 2014, 10:20:51 PM »
This a degradation from the last beta I used.
Until now I was able to modify one or many songs' mp3 tag.
I tried it today after installing the RC1 of v3.0, and it simply does not work anymore. When I hit "Save" nothing is saved to the file.

I like your skin, but have a question: can you make the font larger? are you using size 9 or 10? can you increase it a bit?

Anyway I already done all changes in the library for the version 3.0, so it will be changed in one of the future versions.

That's great news. thank you for all the effort you made, and a great piece of software  :)

3. if 'album artist' is not empty AND 'artist' is not empty -> read 'artist'
In this case you won't see 'Various Artists' under 'Artists' you will see many artists with only one song and there will be no way to show your compilations.

Exactly. That's how it should work, IMHO.
"Various Artists" is not really an artist right, but Beck, Radiohead and Beyonce are.

This is the last beta.

I'm not sure if what I'm going to illustrate here was always the behavior of Winyl, but please try to fix it before the release candidate.

The problem:

The "Artists" grouping always prefers "album artist" over "artist", even if both exists and are not empty. IMHO, this should be the opposite, because I'm, for example, holding a lot of compilations, in all these files tags I have "album artist" = 'various' (or 'various artists', or 'VA'), and "artists" = the real name of the artist. What I see now in Winyl is a very long list of songs under "Artists" names "various".

What about this logic:
1. if 'album artist' is not empty AND 'artist' is empty -> read 'album artist'
2. if 'album artist' is empty AND 'artist' is not empty -> read 'artist'
3. if 'album artist' is not empty AND 'artist' is not empty -> read 'artist'

I think that itunes, and other apple software/endpoints (my iphone included) are working this way.

Please, can this be fixed for v3.0?

Added receiving lyrics from the Internet.

I saw that you have 7 pre-defined lyrics providers. Does the search for lyrics go through all of them before he prints "no lyrics found"?
If yes, then I think I found a bug. I played a song that I was sure it has lyrics on the net. Winyl didn't find its lyrics until I manually set the provider to specific provider (, in my case). Is that normal?

And a suggestion:
Is it possible that Winyl will support user defined radio station (by entering the streaming URL)? I understand that v3.0 is already in Beta, so new features will not be part of it, but can this be part of future release?

Winyl - Questions / Sorting albums with 2 discs and more
« on: April 08, 2013, 08:17:52 PM »
It seems that winyl is ignoring the discnumber attribute tag in albums.
Instead of listing like this:

Album #1
01 - song 1
02 - song 2
03 - song 3

Album #2
01 - song 1
02 - song 2
03 - song 3

It lists:
01 - song 1
01 - song 1
02 - song 2
02 - song 2
03 - song 3
03 - song 3

Which is very annoying.

Is there a fix/work-around for this?

Any idea why I got this black strip as the background of the song details?

It happens to me also. I upgraded today to 2.8.5, and since then I cannot play more than 12 or 13 tracks. The player simply gets frozen. I'm also using DirectSound.
I'm attaching here screenshot of the last time it happens. You can see that Winyl appears twice in the "applications" tab, and only once (as expected) in the "processes" tab.
