DESCRIPTION

ALBUM COVERS
       Album covers should be put in the same  directory  as  the  songs  they
       apply to, and have "folder", "front", or	"cover"	in their filenames. If
       you want	to store multiple albums in the	same directory but  keep  dis-
       tinct cover images, the name of the appropriate image file must contain
       the labelid tag value, e.g. COCX-32760 cover.jpg.

TIED TAGS
       Many places in Quod Libet allow you to use "tied	tags". Tied  tags  are
       two  tag	 names	joined	together  with	a  "~" like "title~version" or
       "album~part".  Tied tags	result in "nice" displays even when one	of the
       tags  is	 missing;  for example,	"title~version"	will result in Title -
       Version when a version tag is present, but only Title when  one	isn't.
       You can tie any number of tags together.

SEARCH SYNTAX
       All of Quod  Libet's search boxes support advanced searches of the fol-
       lowing forms:

       tag = value
       tag = !value
       tag = "value"
       tag = /value/
       tag = &(value1, value2)
       tag = |(value1, value2)
       !tag = value
       |(tag1 =	value1,	tag2 = value2)
       &(tag1 =	value1,	tag2 = value2)
       #(numerictag < value)
       #(numerictag = value)
       #(numerictag > value)

       The 'c' postfix on strings or regular  expressions  makes  the	search
       case-sensitive. Numeric values may be given as integers,	floating-point
       numbers,	MM:SS format, or simple	English, e.g. "3 days",	"2 hours".

       See https://quodlibet.readthedocs.org/en/latest/guide/searching.html.

       All internal tags begin with a ~	character. Non-numeric	internal  tags
       are  ~basea  name,  ~dirname, ~filename,	~format, ~length, ~people, and
       ~rating.	 Numeric internal tags are ~#added, ~#bitrate, ~#disc, ~#last-
       played, ~#laststarted, ~#length,	~#mtime, ~#playcount, ~#skipcount, and
       ~#track.

       See
       https://quodlibet.readthedocs.org/en/latest/guide/tags/internal_tags.html.

RENAMING FILES
       Quod Libet allows you to	rename files based  on	their  tags.  In  some
       cases you may wish to alter the filename	depending on whether some tags
       are present or missing, in addition to their values. A  common  pattern
       might be

       <tracknumber>. <title~version>

       You can use a '|' to only text when a tag is present:

       <tracknumber|<tracknumber>. ><title~version>

       You  can	 also  specify	literal	 text  to use if the tag is missing by
       adding another '|':

       <album|<album>|No Album>	- <title>

       See
       https://quodlibet.readthedocs.org/en/latest/guide/renaming_files.html.

AUDIO BACKENDS
       Quod  Libet  uses  GStreamer  for audio playback. It tries to read your
       GConf GStreamer configuration, but if  that  fails  it  falls  back  to
       osssink.	 You  can change the pipeline option in	~/.quodlibet/config to
       use a different sink, or	pass options to	the  sink.  For	 example,  you
       might use esdsink or alsasink device=hw:1.

       See
       https://quodlibet.readthedocs.org/en/latest/guide/playback/backends.html.

FILES
       ~/.quodlibet/songs
	      A	 pickled  Python  dict	of cached metadata. Deleting this file
	      will remove all songs from your library.

       ~/.quodlibet/config
	      Quod Libet's configuration file. This file is  overwritten  when
	      Quod Libet exits.

       ~/.quodlibet/current
	      A	 "key=value"  file  containing information about the currently
	      playing song.

       ~/.quodlibet/control
	      A	FIFO connected to the most-recently-started  instance  of  the
	      program.	 --next,  --previous,  etc.,  use  this	to control the
	      player.

       ~/.quodlibet/plugins/
	      Put plugins here.

       ~/.quodlibet/browsers/
	      Put custom library browsers here.
