Mythmusic - Enhanced file/directory naming for ripper

Reported by: tlawton@… Owned by: paulh

Description

Mythmusic presently assumes that everyone keeps their music files organised along the lines of 'ARTIST/ALBUM/TITLE' or similar, with only one tag permitted per directory level.

I like to keep my music as 'ARTIST - ALBUM (YEAR)/TRACK. TITLE', but if this is entered as a mythmusic file format it fails badly and all tracks end up in the root of the music store.

This patch enables the more complex format given above, without breaking the ability to use the simple format given at the top.

Side effects: TagSeparator? is no longer used; separators are entered into the format string as above, so can be different at different levels.

(In [12582]) The main focus of this commit is to make mythmusic's rip screen more remote friendly and to allow you to rip several CD'S without having to do a full rescan after each one. Closes #2744.

Main changes are:-

  • Change the rip dialog and the progress dialog to MythThemedDialogs? so they are themeable.
  • Make the dialog fully remote friendly - doesn't use the MythTable? that was virtually impossible to use without a keyboard and mouse.
  • You can now rip more than one CD consecutively without closing the dialog.
  • No need to perform a re-scan after ripping a CD - after each track is ripped its metadata is inserted into the DB.
  • Allow for more complex filenames to be generated with more than one token per section. (Patch from tlawton) Closes #2925
  • Give better feedback to the user when performing tasks which may take a while to perform like scanning a CD for tracks or ejecting the CD.
  • Allow you to use the full metadata editor to change any of the metadata fields. (Highlight the track in the list then press SELECT).
  • Remove the "Only Rip New Music" setting its no longer needed. If MythMusic thinks that one or more tracks are already in the database it will ask you what you want to do.
