Top Tracks missing with MusicCabinet server

Postby Ultraviolet » Wed Nov 05, 2014 9:38 pm

I'm not entirely sure which release resulted in the disappearance of the play top tracks feature, but I just noticed that it is no longer there when using a MusicCabinet server. I see the release notes for a couple of versions ago mentions adding this functionality for MadSonic. I'm guessing this may have broken it for MusicCabinet. With MusicCabinet development dead, I realize this probably won't impact too many users, but it was a valuable bit of functionality for me. Any chance of getting this added back?

There never was any special option for Top Tracks with MusicCabinet programmed into DSub. If I recall correctly, MusicCabinet was just pretending there was a directory called Top Tracks, which mobile clients treated as normal directories. I seriously doubt anything changed on DSub would affect that.

It's definitely something with DSub. MusicCabinet hasn't been upgraded or touched in well over a year (sadly, development is dead). I also just downloaded the UltraSonic app from the Android Play Store, and that displays "Top Tracks", "Artist Radio" and "Related Artists" (like DSub used to and the MusicCabinet web interface still does) at the end of the album list for any given artist. This is a fairly recent change, but I don't know exactly what caused this to stop working.

BTW, I love your app and prefer it over all the others I've tried.

Then check to make sure you don't have browse by tags checked under server settings. I just turned on my mc server real quick and those options still show fine.

Yup, that was it. Thanks a lot. So did I mindlessly go in and make that change or was it toggled on automatically in some release? Sorry for the trouble, but thanks for the help.

I don't think it was changed in any release. It probably was something you toggled to see what it was, didnt see any difference so you left it, then forgot about it ;)
