I have a request for a feature...
I want to see the size of the image (width and height) and/or a simple preview window of the whole image (so I can see the quality of it).
But if it's too hard to do forget it =)


Too much work for what it is...and usually quality is high enough (600x600 jpg)


I just tagged my first record label with the plugin it was still a lot faster than manual but couldn't you make it possible to paste the intire url in the discogs release id box this because selecting it everytime again drives me crazy
so: http://www.discogs.com/release/63894 instead of 63894 or both is also fine. it don't think the url changes after release/ I don't know actually but if it's possible please do it. for one album it wouldn't matter but for 1000 it does and it saves up a lot of time and it's also a bit out of lazyness...


I was thinking to this not so long ago so it'll be done, but you won't make me believe selecting the release id and hitting ctrl-c is much slower than selecting the whole URL. Well it still does make sense to paste the whole URL even if it's 0.5s faster....

I strongly agree - it can't hurt to accept both, and it's easy to implement.

Just a couple of comments and notes:

- Sometimes it doesn't sort tracks alphabetically... for example for the following albums
http://www.discogs.com/release/433449
http://www.discogs.com/release/789299
I guess it should always place tracks in order they are numbered/ordered on discog's page and then you can have an ability to change it the way you want + Have a button to sort tracks alphabetically with one click.

- Would it be possible to embed the following command to run web browser from within menu:
http://www.discogs.com/search?type=release...eplace(%artist%, ,+)+$replace(%album%, ,+)&btn=Search (I use fooRUN component to run this command)
Or even more - parse the page which discogs generate from that link and place the first album link into clipboard or run the renaming dialog right away for the first (if any) successful album

Thanks for such a great component!!!

bubbleguuum, i _love_ that you've used herbert for your anv example . good work; i'm still (patiently) waiting for custom info support though.

I haven't used libcurl, so I don't know how tough this would be to implement, but a progress bar dialog box while it fetches the release data would be a friendly improvement, especially if you are fetching multiple pages (like with ANVs presumably.)

Yeah there is a matching system which compares your track lengths to discogs and sorts the tracks based on results. That button for fast re-sorting sounds good

Herbert is just the king of ANVs !

I'm still considering wheter to add foo_custominfo support or not as I don't think it'll interest a lot of people...
Can you describe precisely why you prefer custom info and for which tags ?

It's becoming necessary to have a progress bar since it can sometimes take a long time to retrieve info and there's no feedback for that, so yes it'll be added!

as someone said discogs track are automatically reordered if the matching algorithm can map them to local tracks. NOw I know it'd make more sense  to have the discogs track in fixed order and reorder the local files instead , but that's not the case because of how I did the dialog in the first place.

I'll try to do a proper search dialog

I'm having trouble getting 2 disc sets to work. I highlight all the tracks in the album (both discs), right click and select "write tags", enter this: "http://www.discogs.com/release/805659"

and it tags everything as one disc with 27 tracks, instead of 2 discs with 13 and 14 tracks. Am I doing anything wrong?

You sure read the instructions in the first post wrong, for a start.

Look at first post, at the end of the changelog of v 0.2. I explain how to tag multi-disc releases

Your wait is almost over, I just added custominfo support (configurable per tag). It was much faster to do than I thought thanks to the easy API. Look for a release this week end.
Only information you can't put in a custom info is the precious release id which is always stored in tag. That way, even if you loose the custom info db you can still regenerate it all either in real tags or in custom info or a mix of the two!

Article 'the' appears at the end of names (e.g. Prodigy, The) if non-ANV name is used

that's quite weird thing on my side. i simply do not add tags to any release with sfv files. i tag only my own rips and / or non-scene stuff. so i can't really use replaygain since 0.9 for example :/

I was thinking since internet explorer now works with tabs can you maybe make it possible if you select the albums you want to be tagged in foobar that it automatically looks for the urls in the tabs that you have open in internet explorer.
that would speedup the things very much.
but leave the normal copy past thing also but what I said would be accurate for mass tagging
if it's possible you only have the search for the discogs and then just press a button and maybe show the field again to look if the tags are good sorted or to choose if you want the albumart or not. and then just press enter for every album.
but it's just a idea because a lot of people have talked about making something like the freedb thing but this would be more accurate and not as slow so I think...

the (16) behind the artist doesn't belong there.

v0.30 released !  Finally with a dialog that helps to find releases, works great (screenshot). Also with foo_custominfo support and download progress indicators.

See first post for download and changelog.

It will reset your tag mappings to the defaults.

The progress bar got stuck on my screen after album art fetching was complete. Got rid of it by tagging an other album. I'll report if happens again

I've got the same problem but not always...
http://www.discogs.com/release/66030 I think this one is parsed incorrectly the tracknumbers don't show up

Also in the next version a sort button would be nice
and in the find release dialog everything is not showed only the releases of the artist, problem is if your tagging a compilation you still have to go and look it up with your browser.
and maybe a little field to filter out what you don't need in the find release dialog then it's perfect !! great work !!

bubbleguuum, thanx for the new version! the search dialog is great, as is custom info support. i would like to keep the release id in the custom info too though.

discogs is probably the best music database for (not only) electronic music - just what i like to listen to .

Yup, I'll make it modifiable with a BIG warning (if you loose your custom info db, you're screwed).
There's some little things that does not works as advertised with custominfo in 0.30:

- format, catalog and label always written to tags even if custom info checked. Same under some
other circonstances with style and genre.

So you may want to wait next version, or disable thoses tag and update them later

It's not a bug it's a ..feature!  I discard discogs track numbering which can be funky (1.01, 1.02), so I renumber the tracks in the order of the tracklisting.

to sort what ? releases ?

yup, incremental filtering would be neat.

Well, the track numbers are indeed not displayed for this funky release because of the vinyl tracks at the end. That does not mean track numbers does not exist, there are just not displayed. In next release i'll display track number

I mean a button to sort the left field with the info on discogs because sometimes it goes crazy.
For example track 20 , track 25, track 05, etc
and I have to sort them manually this takes a while sometimes


Oooh and can you make the find release dialog resizeable and also display catalog numbers after the format, that's easier for tagging vinyl
