Sounds great. The beta is ready but I’m just tweaking the docs a little after reading over this evening.

I’ll message you a link in about 12 hrs.

Sure, take all the time you need. I'm in no hurry.  I will probobly watch the discs this evening anyway and start ripping on sunday or so.
I did a ‘How to’ doc recently on converting discs to audio including keeping the original audio streams to playback Atmos, TrueHD and DTS-HD in Kodi. I just took a look and it needs to be updated with doing Concert disc and getting them into Kodi.

I’ll do that update tomorrow I hope, in time for your Sunday session.

Here’s the current How To covering audio into Kodi. I use m4a as it can be tagged easily and the tags are supported by Kodi’ audio library.

Wow, the guide looks real good. Very usefull for users new to this.
This screen capture video is from Music Media Helper 4.2 which is about to be released in next couple of days (Beta testers wanted PM me please)

How to Split Concert MKV rips into Chapters (song files), auto Rename/Tag, Scrape and auto generate NFO files for Kodi's music video library:

It was captured from a 1920 x 1080 screen and is hard to read on small monitors.

@HomerJau Just a thought, but have you considered building this under mono (https://www.mono-project.com/)?  That would give you cross-platform compatibility as f.e. Linux users just need the Mono runtime library to be able to run such applications.
Thanks for the link, I haven’t looked at mono for a very long time.

I’m planning to move MMH from .NET Framework 4.8 (Windows only) to .NET Core 5/6 which is/will be supported on Win, MacOS and Linux. MMH uses a few .NET libraries including its UI which are supported in .NET Core 5 now and will be in upcoming .NET 6.

.NET Core 5 does not have a UI but I’ve already tried porting some non UI classes and although it’s not automatic, only a small amount of code needs changing (so far..)

.NET 6 is due for release in November and will have a UI (code named MAUI). Pre-releases due every month through to official release. MAUI info here: https://devblogs.microsoft.com/dotnet/in...rm-app-ui/

So my plan is to continue moving MMH to .NET 5 over next 3 or 4 months, releasing a .net 5 version when done (still Windows only) but ready for the .NET 6 November release.

Then when .NET 6 is stable I’ll start releasing MMH MacOS and Linux versions, initially with limited tools, over the following few weeks as alpha/betas.

Having said all that: I may have an immediate use for Mono, to role out a cutdown MacOS version with just a couple of tools for the MAC users over on QuadraphonicQuad forum...  Unlike Kodi users, who are more tech savvy, many QQ’ers need a simple UI driven solution to do anything/everything. I get many more requests for MacOS than Linux on QQ, MacOS being perceived as a simpler environment by less tech savvies I think.

MusicBraiinz Tagging: Failed to return tracks (bug introduced in previous 4.2.3) - fixed
Hi i'm using Version 4.2.9 and I am having this problem using chapter editor.
I opened the file ( Bauhaus - Gotham) entered the number of chapters clicked apply. Then clicked  Get Chapters from MB. I entered the Artist & Album name then got this error message - see pic red box (click to expand)


Is it a bug or am I doing something wrong
Apologies. I just saw your post now.

I’ll check this out tomorrow. I’ve not seen this error previously and wondering if the MusicBrainz server was down went you sent the request.

What version of Windows are you using?
