My son likes this plugin a lot, but unfortunately Discogs apparently has decided that they do not like it. Our IP was banned by Discogs recently, so that we couldn't reach the site from home, and when I contacted Discogs the first thing the support guy said was, "Were you running any kind of tagging app, or album art app?".  I believe Discogs recently tightened-up their policies, especially about the art but it seems with any kind of tagging app also.  I'm still trying to get this straightened-out with the site's administrator.  It's a shame, since the plugin is so useful, and my son was only using it to tag music he bought from Discogs sellers anyway.  Has anybody else had similar issues with Discogs?

Discogs have changed the API terms of use to specifically limit the number of images requests - by application id.
I'm not sure if foo_discogs accounts for more than 1000 image requests per day, but it makes for a substantial change.

Thread here: http://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/52950c194c5e2e7adca760a0

Hopefully our bubbleguuum is on the case... personally I don't mind manually downloading images (I have a keyboard shortcut to open the Discogs page of a tagged release), but I can see the utility of the component for batch image downloading. Sounds like that functionality will have to go now.

Sadly, these images were all freely contributed, now even the contributors can't get at them as easily. As a result of this, I no longer take the extra time to scan and contribute my images.

Hi, I have problem fetching release tags for certain album. the preview shows without problem, so no problem connecting to Discogs.
Error message says: discogs error: release id=2565556: problem connecting to discogs.com
Tried more times to avoid stalled connection, error always.

Phase of error: fetching additional artist info

Why not check out MusicBrainz and the Cover Art Archive run by Internet Archive instead?  Their data model seems much more competent than Discogs.

Thanks. I find these are good: Album Art Downloader or Album Art Exchange and AlbumArt.

I'd like to ask the component author to bring time codes with the next update, so that the tracks length would be visible, like in mp3tag

In most releases the tracks are randomly sorted ,
and make the plugin a headache to use , having to reorganize the track row , like a puzzle. 

Had also to use sort tracks by track time ,  so have 50% correct track rows.

My .flac files are already containing tracknumber in the tag,
and the filename format is  .................................... 01. Artist - Title.flac

Please also add a checkbox to fill %albumartist% with %artist%.

Thank you for the plugin , i hope you make it perfect.

I've got the same problem and I can't see a logic to the ordering of the files on the right-hand side.

In some cases I only need the album art and even with the track numbers already filled in, the order is incorrect...

read the manual!

"Automatically match discogs tracks to local tracks based on track length when available : As it is said, it will match tags and songs only if the number of tracks in both lists is the same and track length is available on discogs.
Warning !! It's not that accurate, so be sure to match tags even with this option checked. (if you have two songs of the same length in particular)"

Isn't it obvious? Discogs is screwing around with the API again.

I got a real bug, which was an issue since before I can remember. When I call up Find Release window, 'Artist:' line is empty, although it IS tagged. Sometimes Artist's name is pasted, but after I save... was saving the tags from discogs and calling it up again, it was gone. This inherent both to mp3 and flac files.

UPDATE: If you paste the exact release URL into the "Release id or url" field, you can still use the plugin just fine. Artist searching capabilities for the plugin are down at this time. It has to be the specific release entry, not just the master URL for the release.

DOESN'T WORK: http://www.discogs.com/Floating-Points-Lov...s/master/194169
WORKS: http://www.discogs.com/Floating-Points-Lov...release/1721776

This is working for me also, its cumbersome but tags the files. its still easier than manual.

thanks.

Hi Folks,

So I've read the lates pages and knew about the api changes.

One question, because the great plugin isnt showing *any* results now for "Los Amigos Invisibles",

while in firefox: http://api.discogs.com/artist/Los%20Amigos...ses=1&f=xml

gives all the information needed. (I copied the url from an earlier post of  bubblegum and replaced the artist...)


Could it be, because the plugin is combined with an api-code which is blocked (whatever reason it could be...) or is the plugin using the same url as in my example?

Just want to know, if further testing is useless :-)

I'll give the MusicBrians plugin a try again, but the handling is .... quite unintuitive and strange for me 8-) this plugin ist just the best thing that could happen to all the brave mp3 taggers out there! Thanks for developing and taking the time to do quick fixes!

P.S.
for all, who can't get any results from the plugin too,
It might help, if you just go to the appropriate release page in discogs.com
( in my case: http://www.discogs.com/Los-Amigos-Invisibl.../release/787135 )
and then copy the Release ID (here: 787135) to the clipboard and paste it into the "release id or url" field in the plugins right bottom corner.
in most of the cases it'll work as expected and the tracks are shown and the files can be tagged.


EDIT: why am I seeing it now, that the same info is posted just 2 posts above mine? 8-) I'm sorry to repeat the obvious...

Hi folks!

I have the same problem with Discogs tagger but there's other thing that seems to be a problem.
It seems like bubblegum has abandoned this component. He wasn't active on this discussion since many months.

We all have a RL beside using f2k. so be patient, or just try to.
search for alternatives u can use in the meantime, or just try other musicplayers/plugins, or try to write your own if you like. give it a try. summer just arrives here. go out in the sun and enjoy your living. check the girls. they don't wear much atm 8-) ther're a lot things to do in life. actually we can't do them all, i guess :-)

the dev has done a tremendios work here and I don't think he is leaving the community w/o saying "good bye" :-)

Looks like it's not necessarily the plugin at fault but the Discogs website/API/server. Can't even load their website or blog at the moment. Successful connections do eventually happen, but there are issues since they introduced the new community-driven search engine update. Give it a few days or weeks and tag manually or use release IDs. The developer is not responsible for these issues in any sense. Enjoy the World Cup games!

Well, If You talking about me, than its misunderstanding. I'm not criticizing author.
The only thing I wanted to say is my fear that bubblegum is strangely quiet.
This is useful addon for me and I'm only worry if it will be upgraded.
Again, Its not any accusation or hate for the author. Its fear that Discogs tagger won't be working after Discogs API changes.

It is a fear that I share. If discogs will disallow such services I won't contribute to them any longer...
