I'd spent ages making sure I had album art attached to all my files, but when I bought a Logitech Squeezebox it didn't pick up any of the album art I'd painstakingly put together. bliss sorted that out, very easily, very cleverly and for a very reasonable cost. One of my favourite pieces of software
Congratulations, bliss is a wonderful bit of kit [...] You have a really great tool in bliss.
The result of the bliss music library scan is perfect. Just set a few parameters and got professional results. Really amazing.
I have a fairly large FLAC music collection for my Squeezebox. Your excellent tool has saved me quite a few hours of work.
bliss finds, downloads and installs.
Embeds art under 256KB, and saves a folder.jpg.
No interruptions! Install on a server, alongside Logitech Media Server, and access remotely.
Cover art really improves your Squeezebox experience. It makes it easier to navigate your music collection because it's easy to recognise albums. Plus cover art can be a great talking point when you show your Squeezebox system off to your friends!
Is cover art not displaying on your Sonos controllers? The first reason might be that art is missing from your music library. If art is missing, you could go and find the art yourself, then use a music tagger like MP3Tag to install it for you. But for 100s or 1000s of albums, that's a lot of work. bliss finds it online automatically using reputable databases to ensure high quality matches.
What if you know you have the art, but it just isn't displaying on your Squeezebox? There are a number of rules for displaying cover art on Squeezebox. If you don't obey them, Squeezebox won't show your art. The rules are listed here. The main ones are: embed art inside music files, and it's also best to save a separate file in each album directory. bliss does this automatically so you don't need to continually perform the same actions.
Take a look at the album art for Squeezebox walkthrough.
bliss works with the underlying music files, so that means if you have other music players, such as iTunes or Winamp, they will see the cover art too.
bliss works in the background, unobtrusively watching your music collection. When music is added or updated, it automatically assesses any new albums to make sure they have cover art, finding and installing any missing art, and letting you know if it cannot. You can also manually change art, either from a list of suggestions bliss finds automatically, or by uploading your own art or providing a URL. bliss has a Web based user interface, which means it is accessible from anywhere on your network, or even across the world.
And it's not just cover art. bliss also organizes music files and fills in missing tags. Genre categorisation rules allow you to take control of your MP3 genres!
