I will address my two issues in the same order:
To get the full potential out of beets and tagging my files I thought fingerprinting was a good way to go. I enabled the plugins in the config.yaml file with ease but (plugin: chroma) but there may be and issue with the plugin not being able to locate it’s files. I followed the Plugin help doc I was able to download all the files necessary.
I downloaded (fpcalc and placed it in my /usr/local/bin, installed chroma via homebrew, chromaprint (and it’s command line tool), and the pyacoustid library).
When installing chromaprint with homebrew I get:
==> Downloading https://cmake.org/files/v3.8/cmake-3.8.0.tar.gz
Already downloaded: /Users/zol/Library/Caches/Homebrew/cmake-3.8.0.tar.gz
==> ./bootstrap --prefix=/usr/local/Cellar/cmake/3.8.0 --no-system-libs --parallel=2 --datadir=/share/cmake --docdir=/share/doc/cmake --mandir=/share/man --system-zlib --system-bzi
(this last line stays in the terminal until I restart) I’m guessing this is because the file is already downloaded.
My second issue lies in my directory not saving properly… I have 2000 odd files that I fixed up nicely in the beets library that aren’t all saving to my ~/Music. There are a few albums that are saving but the issue still lies in the majority of my files simply not saving. Am I looking over a simple command that could fix this issue?
Following this the terminal flickers between cmake, ruby and sh…
Thanks for the quick reply!
P.S. Here’s some more stuff… Also it’s can’t go unnoticed how amazing beets is. Thank you so much!!
