  1. Can we get a feature with a dropdown list of various genres? This way when not using cruise control and you click "Grab This Track" the user can select a genre they would like to tag the song with. Makes sense since you're already in manual mode grabbing songs. The song is already tagged with artist and song name. The only other important aspect is the genre. Album title and year are not that important (at least to me). Also, if someone creates a complete pandora rock station, even with cruise control "on" they may want all songs tagged with "Rock" genre. Of course this is assuming CDDB
  2. When the app grabs the song it takes all the files in temp directory and sorts them by the modified time. Once sorted it grabs the file. In the case you mentioned where Pandora reloads it doesn't matter since a timestamp is used.
  3. :idea: New version available for download: pandoras-jar-beta.5.zip Changes: * All settings such as pandora username, last.fm username/password, and other options can be saved * Settings are saved to a cookie which expires after 60 days Now if the page reloads all your settings will be restored and you don't need to retype any info. Helpful Info: * To start the app with command window open: java -jar pandora.jar port# * To start the app without command window open: javaw -jar pandora.jar port# ** You will notice I created a shortcut (Pandorab5) for the second option. Every user
  4. pandora.js file in the js folder has the settings. One of the settings is: var SONG_COUNT_BEFORE_RELOAD = 30; Pandora after sometime will require user intervention and will not function. This setting ensures that Pandora is reloaded before it requires user intervention. So if you want to rip music all night long (cruise control is on) then this will do it for you. If you're going to sit in front of the computer and rip songs manually (cruise control is off) then you can increase the counter for reload. When pandora stops playing songs because it requires user intevention, you can simpl
  5. irieb Can we have a separate thread dealing with the development of the program (different versions, features under development, etc.)? Seems this thread has become particular to problems people are experiencing with the program - especially new users who are not reading previous post in this thread which may have solutions to their problems. Thanks.
  6. irieb I used the program entire day and everything works fine. However, I did notice some issues: * When cddb lookup is off, song will be ripped to: %Directory%StationNameArtistName-SongName.mp3 With cddb lookup is on, song will be ripped to: %Directory%StationNameAlbumNameArtistName-SongName.mp3 I don't think the album name should create a folder on the drive since a song may be in a folder and another song by the same artist may be outside the folder. * The html page by default sets these options: last.fm data - off cddb lookup - off cruise control - on pan
  7. irieb Very nice work. Working very well for now. I'll be testing it today. I have one suggetion for now. When "cruise control" is set to off (also cddb lookup is off) the user is primarily sitting at their computer and controlling which song they like/dislike and select which song they would like to rip song by song. I think a nice option would be to let them input the additional ID3 tag info on their own. For example if Pandora is playing some nice Trance mix, cddblookup may return genre as 'Electronic' if it finds the song. Usually doesn't find the song info anyway for mixes. The
  8. Folder structure is user to user preference. Most people import the mp3s into their music player from various folders and search easily since songs are tagged. As long as a song has a good ID3 tag, who cares what's it saved as on the computer? However I agree that "Artist Name - Song Name.mp3" should be the format followed when saving the song. Basic functionality we need perfected before any fancy features are added is: * Save songs locally to a specified folder* Save song in format mentioned above * Write ID3 tag with Artist and Song name by default. Retrieving additional info to im
  9. irieb With the last.fm retrieve option set to 'off' the app still sits on song info retrieval on CddbLookUp: I can't get passed the CddbLookUp. Is it possible to have song info retrieval disabled too? Instead of looking up the ID3 tag info you can just tag it with Pandora's info. I listen to lots of trance music and most of the time ID3 lookup fails anyway because the songs are special mixes and there is no info on them. In ProcessAction.java method ProcessAction() if CddbLookUp could be disabled by option that would be great. Thanks.
  10. I use this Pandora app a lot at home and at work. It doesn't work for me at work because when it does the lookup to tag the mp3 is just sits there. Probably due to the firewall. Is it possible to add an option (checkbox) in the app to enable and disable online retrieving of data? When disabled I'd like it to just tag the song with pandora's info. Thanks,
