Hi, I am new here… First of all this is truly world’s best music organizer… I have spent all day yesterday with this utility and what it has done with my music collection is just brilliant.
Now my question. I usually sort my playlists by adding a comment like New or Fav . By doing this no matter what audio player I use, I can sort my playlists instantly. I wanted to copy both of my playlists to my android phone. So I did this -
beet move -cpt -d /home/akya/1Dump/sync/ comments:Fav (removed p later)
beet move -cpt -d /home/akya/1Dump/sync/ comments:New
After that I got all my mp3 files in a folder I mentioned and I moved all those to my phone. So these files still exist in my library folder but apparently move commands removed them from my database once I ran the command beet up. Now how to import these existing files back into my database?
My library is already sorted and has correct structure
/media/Media/Songs/English/ is library directory and has all artists/albums
/media/Media/Songs/English/Non-Album has all single tracks
/media/Media/Songs/English/Compilations/ has all comp.
reimporting this directory again created problems for me yesterday. I am a little stuck on what’s the correct method to proceed from here. Also if you have any other idea of syncing my playlist to an android phone or a folder, that would be awesome. Sorry for such a long post but I would love to hear how people sort their collections and see if I can get any tips.
