I was so looking forward to trying this out, but I got the same type of error that srboisvert did. I guess I'll have to wait.  :(

You're going to hate me... more bugs! ;D (or apparent bugs at least).

First, the problem with the pictures in the folders is fixed. But I noticed I weird thing that is I can move along the grid using the right mouse button. Is that normal?

And I see that if I limit the chart to the Top 10 entries, it defaults to 4 and remains like that if I select some field with not enough information to fill the rest of the bars. Again, is this the expected behavior?

Since I can't exclude folders yet, this represents a combined collection and the musical tastes of 4 people:

Hmm... just struck me while eyeing app's charts that the totals aren't included ... you could have a "total shown" depending on the cut off and a grand total.

Here's my quirky (AKA schizophrenic) collection (top slots seem to be podcasts - I am really bad a deleting them!) ...

sc.pngNew App! WTF!? Music Info

Fun toy though ... why do I need to enter a specific folder when I already have a window full of folders? Why not just dispense with the folder field and have the folders window?

i actually like the folder field since it allows me to type-in/paste the folder-name as opposed to folders windows which requires one click-find the necessary folders. just my 2ยข.. :)

I know, ... I know (smart arse) - I am just crap at consistent tagging.

No silly, I was telling the developer about the change he might want to make. :)
Have you looked at the "tags" in  the screenshot I posted? People living in glasshouses and all that...

Fair enough (ducks the shattering glass ceiling ...)

I can only see the first one you posted as the others are too small and don't enlarge when you click them.

Actually most of mine are either tagged because they came that way, or I use WMP find the album ... feature. I am really bad at getting round to tagging (or removing duplicates - that graph of mine is probably totally wrong because I have huge numbers of multiple copies scattered all over the place).

Sorry, was falling asleep at the computer last night ;)

+ added an 'additional search folders' list that will be searched along side the main search dir
* fixed the mouse clicking on the chart issue (where you could move the chart around when you're not supposed to be able to)
* other internal fixes / improvements

Gosh, another bug. The new version does not read FLAC files at all :(

Also, are you planning to add Unicode support?

[off topic] So, Carol, from your chart up there, I'm deducting that you're a Glenn Gould fan... I've been a fan since I'm 10 years old... :) Even if I'm not listening to him as much, he's still among my all time favorites. [/off topic]

This is an excellent little program.  Just more proof of how great donationcoder is.  I can't believe I managed without this site for all those years.
