View Full Version : current build and moodlogic - way better

Just thought I'd mention that the latest (4/3) build functions way better
with Moodlogic.

In the last few months I've struggled with ML - turning it on/off many times
after finding problems that I couldn't live with, and then soon back on
after missing the ability to quickly create the perfect playlist - utilizing
songs that I've forgot about or maybe haven't heard in a while. These
auto playlists based on song pick, mood, genre, etc. make the plugin
worthwhile in my opinion.

With the latest build, slimserver makes up for the gripe that ML doesn't
build a very complete Genre list by including both ML Genre info and info
from the Tag library.

I pray this isn't a side effect and was deliberate! It really is helpful
and will probably keep me from turning ML off again.

Regards,
Mike Beranek

Don't worry, it was deliberate. :) Mainly, Moodlogic wasn't providing bitrate,
so that was the trigger. The server now reads all the info that it would without
Moodlogic, then lets Moodlogic enhance that info with what it can provide.

Stayed tuned, Moodlogic is being very helpful towards improving on the existing
integration with SlimServer. There is more to come.
