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


I could reproduce it and will investigate. Probably another  discogs problem they only have the secret.
In the meantime, if you disable "Enable Artist Name Variation (ANV) processing" in the plugin's configuration page, it should make fetching releases instant.

It happens to happen especially with compilation albums with lots of different artists.
Here, it happens only with artists with a very long discographie, like michael jackson or elvis presley. on artists which only a few releases, the plugin is not having the error message popped up and tags the files correctly.
enjoy the days :-)
p.s. Enable Artist Name Variation (ANV) processing (slower) was disabled all the time.

I can confrim that. The option was disabled at all times and yet it takes so long to process the page(s).
All tracks accurately ripped

Is stated some posts above.

Also, If you take the ID from the DiscoGS Website, i.e. http://www.discogs.com/Elvis-Presley-Chris...release/2809203
and paste it to the plugin, it does not work. it gives "discogs error: release id=2809203: no error"

It is a discogs server error returning http error "Gateway Time-Out (504)". Someone else reported such failures on the discogs API forum.

Same error in a web browser:  http://api.discogs.com/artist/Eric+Clapton...ses=1&f=xml

I suppose it only happens with artists with super long discographies which triggers a server-side timeout

Can't reproduce it so must be one of these intermittent failure discogs.com has the secret...

Maybe anyone can try this at home? Just to confirm, that I'm the only one, or not...

Maybe i'm working with the wrong settings?

I tried to turn off "fetch album art" and switched of some other options, but with no success. I'm getting the error since last year, continously.

I just type the Number 2809203 into the "Release id or url" field and press ENTER.

Thanks.
I now installed a plain and portable version (same as I had installed) of Foobar with only the DiscoGS plugin, and it works... 8-/

So its not a problem of the discoGS website or api, its just a problem with (my configuration or the installation of) foobar. Or the plugins configuration with foobars configuration...I guess, i'll never find out :-)

Thank you for helping!

EDIT:
...and after starting the old Foobar version AND DELETING the configuration\foo_discogs.dll.cfg file, it also worked flawlessly....
(although I selected the very same settings from the screenshots above)

I can't edit my Post...

Today I copied the old config back and agian it did not work.

So it must be the configuration of the discogs plugin.

If the developer likes to have a look at the config, here it is.

I found another Workaround (than deleting the settings) for the above failure in the component while getting data from the discoGS api:

Go to the Edit Tag Mappings of the component and delete all the mappings you made previously. (as I did at lot)

Rightclick on foobars main window -> Tagging -> Discogs -> Edit Tag Mappings -> Default mappings

After deleting all the mappings, the request is veeeeeeeeeeery fast again and will get no timeout. (I'm wondering, why the request is slow with mappings)

Not a good workaround, cause you loose all mappings and therefore (my) library searches are not working anymore, but better than nothing (literally)...

Love this plugin. Thanks bubbleguuum, your work is very much appreciated.

I do have one feature request if you like. If it's at all possible.

Highlighting of matched text when comparing Discogs tracks to the local filenames. Would be super handy. Its already very clearly laid out. But this would make things even clearer.

Anyway, thanks for the plugin and keep up the great work!

EDIT: Also, It would be useful to be able to amend things to the end of album names. I generally add (EP), (Compilation) (Remix) or (Live) to the end of album names to make things a bit clearer. Nothing major. I add them in afterwards as it is. Would just be a nice feature.

Thanks again!

Hi,

After (years of) problem free discog tagging, I just started getting an error when the plug tries to download related album artwork:

e.g. foo_discogs: error: could not save url=http://api.discogs.com/image/R-509447-1125441845.jpeg, skipping...

error seems to be discogs now requiring some authentication?:
"You must authenticate to access this resource."

anyone else?

ouch. thanks for the heads up Marc!

I have applied for (and received!) my API.

bubbleguuum - will you be supporting user API keys in a future version of the plug?

That would be great - I wouldn't want to miss the discogs plugin anymore, it makes tagging so much easier. Well, atm I tag files and then download the album art manually.

Just to be clear - the tag info still works fine - **the API is needed for downloading artwork**

Yep, tagging itself works fine as usual. Maybe I should have pointed that out more clearly.

at the moment, discogs doesn't require any kind of authentication/API key to get release info so it would require an updated component - and of course that would depend entirely on whether the developer wants to implement it or not.

What would you guys recommend as an alternative to fetch album art? I did a bit of searching and it seems foo_discogs is one of the only good ones. The only alternative is to search for a good program and use the foo_run component?

I personally use foo_uie_biography to automatically pull art from last.fm. Otherwise I have Album Art Downloader XUI and foo_covdow installed, but rarely used. If 99% of your albums already have cover art a simple google search takes like 5 seconds to add cover to the latest one added.

I don't know why but last days or weeks Discogs tagger generates error on artworks downloading, ALWAYS (when artist or CD images are present)

I just tested, and because the file names remain same the solution is very simple: just replace api.discogs.com by s.pixogs.com in fetch URL 


Where can I change the host? I don't find this option.
