    Bulk-tagging of Spotify-tracks ?

    Hi Michael

    I like the possibility to add genre tags to Spotify tracks, because then I can spice up Random mixes with my local tracks.

    As of now, you can replace genre tags of songs, albums or artists in the Online Music Library Integration, but what if you have multiple songs with the same title?

    It would be nice if a playlist (Spotify or LMS) could be bulk-tagged during rescan?

    ... Or would it be better to create a playlist of my genre (+2000 tracks) and add new tracks to that list?

    So you'd like to set the genre for track A to some value if it was part
    of playlist X? Sounds like a reasonable idea. Though I'm not sure I'd
    want to mirror all my tracks in some playlist. Would considerably slow
    down the import process.

    I was trying to come up with a generic solution. But Genres seem to be
    something relatively personal... what some consider Rock, others call
    Pop. Therefore I'm reluctant to use some online database or the like.
    But I do feel, too, that the current solution is a bit too basic.

    Exactly.

    Tracks should not be mirrored or duplicated, only genre-tagged.

    ... But if creating a playlist of my genre tracks and adding to that gives the same result, this idea is unnecessesary?

    Is Random Mix with a genre better than random playing a huge playlist of, say 3000 tracks?

    LMS isn't very efficient handling large lists. One reason why by default
    it's limited to 500 tracks. Random Mix indeed was created to still give
    the user the option to play all his library without queuing up all the
    tracks.
