Idea: Library Filter
#1
I do a lot of my music collection management in MediaMonkey where I can arrange music into collections based on almost any property (only certain tags, excluding certain tags, certain locations, certain codecs, etc) which I use for things like a "No Classical" view, or a "Just FLAC" view.  I also use MinimServer for DLNA where I can specify filters to ignore some parts of the library.  I miss this more than I expected in moOde.  It would be great if we could define filters that include/exclude certain tags from the library view.  A simply "show where tag is/is not value" would be powerful enough.

I'm thinking of rearranging my music collection so I can mount my usual collections (which are exclusive of each other) as separate NAS entries, but swapping from one to another would be a bit laborious.

Why not go with a single unified collection?

Size mostly, and because some of my collection was inherited from my Father when he died and contains albums that I don't want to discard but rarely want to listen too either.  I hive the inherited albums off to a collection I almost never look at, to remove clutter and make it easier to find things I do want to listen to.  Then my collection without the inherited stuff is over 700 albums, so sub dividing it just makes it easier to navigate.
But really, I just got used to being able to slice up my collection with Media Monkey and Minimserver and I miss it in the moOde interface is all.

Makes sense. Something like what you are proposing could be added as a Library option similar to the TAG VALUE pairs that can be specified to filter auto-shuffle.

Hello,

I have a similar request about filtering and or grouping albums by tags.
In my case I would appreciate grouping and/or filtering albums by audio quality (mp3, flac, 16/44 - 24/96 - 24/192, etc.).
It could be done with Playlists also, but not so friendly like grouping/filtering in Moode's album page would be (IMO).

Anyway thank you so much for Moode !!!

Unfortunately the encoded-at rate is not a tag carried in the MPD database.
