That sounds weird, where's the difference then?

Reproduced. This is a Discogs API bug: it returns JSON instead of XML.
I think it is just an itermittent issue and if you try later for this release it will work.
That's the case of the 2 releases mentionned in the previous post, which now work.

Even if it seems a discogs weird intermittent issue, I could fix it by always requesting XML.

Hi,

bug report time:

http://www.discogs.com/Taylor-Deupree--Eis.../release/510800

on the website the tracks are displayed properly, in foo_discogs you get some sort of htmlencoded version of the 8th and 9th tracks.

That's because of unicode characters

8       そして、欲する (Every Still Day)    6:03    
9       出水 (Leaf)

Feel free to apply the tags and then paste track titles manually

Yes of course it's because of the unicode characters. What's not clear is why it fucks up on that release, but is able to tag  http://www.discogs.com/Bogdan-Raczynski-Sa...ts/release/5689 perfectly.

Because xml data returned by discogs is not always properly xml escaped for specials characters, for some releases.

Aha. So are you treating this as a bug or will you leave it as it is?

i'm sure bubbleguuum can work around it if he wants to. i've had to deal with some daft API responses myself. take this title for example...

Code: [Select]
"title" : "Loxy\n\n  &\n\n  \n  Keaton - Judgement Day"


that's 5 line breaks and extra spaces as well. stupid discogs.

Hello, I've been using your plugin for quite some time and I find it very useful.
Can you add Barcode and Other Identifiers into tagging? Discogs seemingly added them into their API.
See this: https://www.discogs.com/developers/resource...se/release.html
If you request http://api.discogs.com/releases/1
there's 'identifiers' part somewhere in the output, like this:
Code: [Select]
"identifiers": [{"type": "Matrix / Runout", "description": "A-Side", "value": "MPO SK 032 A1 G PHRUPMASTERGENERAL T27 LONDON"}, {"type": "Matrix / Runout", "description": "B-Side", "value": "MPO SK 032 B1"}, {"type": "Matrix / Runout", "description": "C-Side", "value": "MPO SK 032 C1"}, {"type": "Matrix / Runout", "description": "D-Side", "value": "MPO SK 032 D1"}]

See also here https://www.discogs.com/developers/resource...h-endpoint.html
I'm not sure if it's relevant but it allows for searching barcodes.

I think that having barcodes etc. in tag fields is important for identifying a release. Since introduction of this feature as a separate field on Discogs this data have been moved away from Notes field and no longer available for tagging.

Bug:
I wanted to map th Country tag to "MUSICBRAINZ ALBUM RELEASE COUNTRY" (because I use MusicBrainz), foo_discogs crops it to "MUSICBRAINZ ALBUM RELEASE COU" because the field ends there. The maximum length of the tag shouldn't be defined by the size of the text field.

Feature:
Can you add an option that saves the cover(s) into the audio file when possible instead of saving it as extrenal image file?

New to foobar.  This plug-in is excellent, however I'm getting this error when trying to add artist art:

foo_discogs: error: problem creating file 104745_1.jpg [Object not found], skipping...

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Hello everybody,

is there any way to ADD fetched styles from discogs within the plugin, instead of OVERWRITE them?

For some music, i already have defined styles and don't wan't to loose them.

Edit tag mappings button in the "Release" window of discogs tagger.
Then you can assign discogs information to another tag field or to none.

And after that I have a "Script" running, which ADDs the field I assigned to the STYLE-Tag? Nice Idea, thanks!

I'll try to figure out, if I can bind a shortcut to the discoGS plugin *and* to this "adding-script" at once, so I just need to press 1 key/button and not always have to remember to run that script after getting the tags from the discoGS plugin... anyone a short hint for this?

Hi everyone...i use foo_discogs to tag all of my albums and i have a question about the tag <DISCOGS COUNTRY>....
Is it related to the country where that specific album were released, right? it's not a tag that inform you about the country of provenience of the band/artist, right??

Is there a discogs tag that tells me the country of the artist??

i'm guessing the answer is a big fat no. obviously this plugin is centred on releases and it will only return relevant information for that.

even if you tried to lookup artist rather than release info, i don't think you'll find anything. i can't see any reference to country of origin browsing artist pages on the website.

thank you for the clarification
I'd like to create a facets panel that list all the country on the left and the relative artists on the rigth, but i thing there's no way to tag everything if not manually...

Might be a discogs intermittent error. I'm unable to reproduce this error on the 3515185 release.
Can you give me a few release ids where it happens ?

I don't think it is an intermittent error, as I retried several times on several days.

Actually, it happens a lot more often than I previously stated. It happens to happen especially with compilation albums with lots of different artists. I just tried 3 of these compilations, all 3 failed. I am at a point where I left out tagging completely until this is resolved.

It says "fetching addition artist information (long) [well, really? takes 5 minutes each time.....]" then the window pops up and nothing happens.

See these images for IDs

Yes it is. So is my taste of music.
Version 1.1 fullfills the requirements of the plugin. I will update foobar2k if the author suggests foobar2k might be the reason. Else I have no reason to update it.
