Problems with importing .mscz files with blanks/spaces in name

I recognized problems with importing MuseScore files into the app directly from email. It seemed to get imported but then the app just shows a white screen.

Shutting down the app and restarting it, the Songbook only shows a new entry with a long number but can't actually open it.

By accident I found out that this most probably was caused by blanks/spaces in the file name. When having replaced those by underscores, the import worked as expected.

Could you possibly check if this is actually a bug in the latest IOS version?

You Tube, Chrome, and MuseScore

In response to a bug report of mine yesterday about what seems to have been a temporary problem, DanielR (his name doesn't at-sign complete) informed me that Chrome and/or YouTube (both Google products) have implemented a policy change that refuses to embed YouTube videos, which is the present MuseScore technology for coupling score playbacks to sounds produced by other means (e.g., advanced DAW's, Virtual Pipe Organs).  If that's, as Cronkite used to say "the way it is" forever, this is a massive setback.  Not so much for contributors to this site like myself, but for visitors directed to it who will have no idea what's going on when a carefully-produced score refuses to play. I have verified that a YT score which works in FF just hangs in Chrome.

If the report is accurate
, two courses of action present themselves. First, the site page scripting should detect this, and not offer the player bar, but instead, substitute a box saying "You-Tube backed score cannot be played on Google Chrome. Please use a different browser."

Secondly, the policy of prohibiting the MP3 upload connection of arbitrary, non-MS-produced sound to score playback needs reassessment in light of this development.  "Scores with good sound can't be played on Chrome" is a horrific state of affairs.  Is that true for Google Android as well?

This seems to be Google saying "You can't use YT content this way, at least as long as we have anything to say about it", and i wonder when the other shoe will drop and you won't be able to embed YT content at all, in any browser. If the report is accurate, YouTube is no longer a viable solution to pairing MuseScore with more capable performance engines.

Smooth Loops

Hi, I am a pianist and a violinist. Now, as you probably know, sometimes people struggle with certain parts of a piece of music. Looping the music is a great solution but there is one problem, the loops aren't smooth! If you make a loop, there will be a short pause between each repetition, which, is makes practicing using the loop very difficult. If you could get rid of that pause (or at least minimize it) to the best of your ability to make it mostly seamless, that would be greatly appreciated by not only me, but many other MuseScore users.
Thank you, Zatchary

Admins (UPDATED!!! PLEASE READ)

Hey All,
I've realized that I'm never one, partly because my cousins keep me moving! (THX, Burggraafs! :D). So I thought I'd select some new admins. I'll only select a few, so let me know ASAP.
Thanks
15/05/19: I'll only be selecting a few more, so respond ASAP.
17/05/19: I won't be selecting any more. If you totally forgot to reply, please message me and I'll see what I can do! Thank you!!!!

Dave Benson: Music: A Mathematical Offering

https://eclass.uoa.gr/modules/document/file.php/MATH379/1.%20%CE%92%CE%B9%CE%B2%CE%BB%CE%AF%CE%B1/DaveBenson.pdf

This  is a great book on the mathematics of music, it starts at your usual  pitch ratios and  sine waves but ends up at fourier transformations, burnside's  lemma and dihedral groups. There are also excursions to file formats and various  way to generate music (including specific software to do so).

Unable to import to MuseScore iOS

After a recent update I'm no longer able to import anything (.mscz files) into the iOS MuseScore App. After one update it removed my entire library I had imported, so I imported a load again. Now I find I can't import anything anymore. This is the same on my iPad as well as my iPhone.

To import, on the Desktop version of MuseScore I type up the music I want & save it into a cloud based location (iCloud Drive) as a .mscz file. I then go to that location on my iPad, tap on the share button & select Copy to MuseScore.
If I do this now, the MuseScore App will flash open, but nothing will happen. When I do this the file should be accessible via Library > SongBook.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug? There have been a few more minor updates since, but the issues persists.

If you'd like anymore information regarding this, please let me know.

Thanks,
Adam

Sonic Trailer Soundtrack needs to be more E🅱IC IMO

 Hey y'all, S̶c̶o̶t̶t̶ ̶h̶e̶r̶e̶ ,
as you probably all have seen by now, the Sonic the Hedgehog movie trailer is looking hot garbage (ah, dat's haht).
We've all seen the model for Sonic and gone, "What the hell is that thing?".
But, I was more focused on the soundtrack and I thought it needed to be more  E🅱IC. So I 'fixed' it. I hope you enjoy it and please give me your thoughts. Thanks :)

Ok, but seriously, that Sonic was just awful, I really hope the redesign is a lot better
