Just wanted to say this app is great and thank you for providing a trial!
I would like to be able to hold and select multiple albums from the album view or favorite album view and select an option to add the albums selected to my offline cache.
Just another small request, it would be nice to have a little icon to show which media is available offline in bother album and song view. (maybe a download icon?)
This is with a subsonic sever if that matters (navidrome).
Currently, I use a smart playlist with the favorite filter to auto cache all my favorite songs but because subsonic treats favorite albums and songs differently the playlist doesn’t added favorite albums so I have to download them manually. The ability to multi select albums (and songs if possible) to cache them would be great since my main use is offline.
I think being able to mulit-select albums to download would be useful to everyone, it makes it faster or easier to bulk download media for offline use.
Other application solutions:
I haven’t used many other subsonic client apps, I think dsub does this but I’m not sure.
Now that you’ve added the “Favourite Artist” & “Favourite Album” to the smart filter rules, I have created a smart playlist to show all favourites but it doesn’t seem to work as I expected.
Ultimately, I want my Favourites (artist, album or song) to automatically be available offline. What is your recommended approach?
In “Advanced Settings”, activate “Automatic offline cache of favourite albums and songs” (is artist missing BTW?)
Create a smart playlist that uses Favourites (artist, album or song), but don’t cache it (I am assuming that the automatic offline cache does this?
in any case, this approach has been unsuccessful in my testing
In “Advanced Settings”, de-activate “Automatic offline cache of favourite albums and songs”
Create a smart playlist that uses Favourites, but “Enable auto offline cache”
haven’t tested this yet, but based on my previous experience this would work
Also, my testing shows that “Favourite Album” will filter albums that have favourite tracks, not be a favourite album. For example, “Come As You Are” is a favourite, but “Smells Like Teen Spirirt” isn’t a favourite but all tracks on “Nevermind” are picked up in the filter.
I have also found that the “Favourite” rule doesn’t work, but trying to give you a good example before I raise a case.
If there is some way I can provide logs for these types of issues, please let me know.
