Another new version of MacUpdate.com. What’s wrong, near total monopoly not good enough for ‘ya?

Used to be that mousing over any of the 'Similar Software' superimposed over each app’s icon its short description, price and rating — what happened to that? I’m sure as hell not going to click on each app’s icon and visit its MacUpdate page just to learn those admittedly important bits of info, so this is an obvious and rather large DOWNGRADE of this site’s capabilities, no?

Version 4 still prompts to install Java 6?

Really?

It does? Really?
Because it comes with a bundled Java 8 and does not need Java 6.

Yes, I got prompted to install Java 6. I'm happy to help test if you need me to.

That would be great!
I can't reproduce the issue. Can you show me what it looks like?
I.e. record a screencast with QuickTime (http://support.apple.com/kb/PH5882?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US) when launching beaTunes 4 that shows the message? Please post it to http://help.beatunes.com/
Many thanks in advance!

Hey Donmontalvo, any chance you were able to take that screen recording?
Thanks.

I rebuilt the Mac and downloaded beaTunes 4 and did't get the prompt.

That's great news!
Thanks for checking this again.
Would you mind editing your rating? It seems to be purely based on the Java 6 issue.

Donmontalvo

I would if I could. In hindsight it should have been a comment and not a rating.

If MacUpdate folks are reading this, can this be changed to a comment?

I'm sorry, but in today's world, Java and Flash are dirty words.

BeaTunes, I love you, but, well...bye.

To be clear, BeaTunes requires Java 6...which has been end-of-life'd. This means BeaTunes requires something that puts your computer at risk.

This software needs to have its error handling revamped. They need to IMMEDIATELY supply a 64bit version that actually uses my system memory (i have 12 gigs of ram + swap but this shitty software only uses 1280 m or so = 10% of availiable memory) and it constantly chokes on having to little memory availiable. It is highly unstable and when it crashes you don't even get an onscreen message it just sits on the screen looking just as if it is still working)

The above is regarding the Windows version

I'm working on a 64 bit version for Windows, a beta version and more info about this topic is available here: http://blog.beatunes.com/2013/09/64-bit-on-windows-round-2.html

On OS X, beaTunes has been 64 bit for a long time.

I needed something to help me quickly (meaning over the course of a few days) analyze my entire music library before a DJ gig after transferring all of my music to a new hard drive. beaTunes was very efficient and fairly straightforward to use. It wasn't 100% accurate, but out of a library of several thousand songs it was easily in the 95th percentile for accuracy. I could live with that.

beaTunes even detects the key and tempo (BPM) of each song. Those features alone saved me several hours of tedious work. It's easy to sort music by genre, but a DJ needs more information than that. beaTunes did well by me - not perfect, but very, very good.

Lookup databases are a mess for all of us. Hopefully the music industry will someday learn to help its customers.

No ratings yet...as I am currently starting a test run with this software..... Gonna throw 240,000 MP3s at it and see what happens. Currently it is synchronizing with my music library. Throwing a few log entries out there as it works....but progressing nicely. Will add more as we go along.

Processed my library....now doing the inspection.... Got the Program's window up in the background right now. Not slowing my Mac Mini at all..... Seems to be chewing it's way through 240,000 MP3s without a hitch so far. More later....

Finished the inspection.....display window opened upwith all the issues that it found.....MANY.... THEN FROZE...... Had to force quit........ Restarted it....came up with a locked database....chose to unlock the database and continue..... Waiting now.......

CRASH......Not responding is what I am getting now.... It has managed to lock up my mac several times....reboot....and try to start again....spinning wheel....and NOT RESPONDING. Kills the bottom dock also. The only way to make it go away is to FORCE QUIT. Will keep checking this....but a NO GO for me! Maybe if they can fix it and get it to handle 240,000 MP3s... You would have thought that they would have already tested it with a ton of MP3s.......

Anybody have any remedy for the lock up?

Any similar experiences? How many MP3s in your library?

MacZapIt

Saved it!! Read through their FAQs...and gave the program more memory 2GB.....started watching the Activity Monitor and the beaTunes log files..... Things started moving.....Playlists were being built....The window filled in...I could adjust the preferences....and just started deleting my duplicates. Hooray.....

And I just payed for a license.

After a few minor hiccups....and a few manual adjustments....working like a charm. Well worth the money! Buy this.

Don't assume it is hung....look at your logs and your activity monitor....and give this baby enough memory........

Thanks for the positive review!

The average music library contains a couple of thousand songs and the default settings work well for a collection that size.
Your collection clearly falls in the *very large* category and adjusting the memory settings like you did is absolutely the right thing to do.
