Another question: is it possible not update the track title and at the same time keep the match with the discogs release (ex: in my title track i've the name and a description "(Live in......)" but this part is not in discogs release)?

Probably interesting for zoomorph:
Discogs switched their new Tracks content (tracks/composition/recording relative data) on as a public beta on the main server (no idea if there is any API functionality for this yet...):
https://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/747050

Might be worth keeping an eye on as the plan seems to be to push this into the main discogs site functionality within the next few months ;)

You should experiment with the "Write / Update" option in the "Edit tag mappings" config window.


Also take a look here.

How i can properly write the first and last track information?
experiment with the "move up/down" and "remove" buttons in the "Match Tracks" window, as well as check the "parse hidden tracks" option in the configuration of this fine component. you'll find it in the tab "caching", which seems a little bit odd, if you not exactly know, what you're looking for :-)

I tried to create my application with the name foo_discogs, entered the key from there - again there is no authorization, the forum read, the time is synchronized

Thanks this is interesting!

No worries. Looks like there's a fair bit to be build around this, albeit slowly...
Atm they're running a poll (go to a tracks page and you should have an option to ttake it) to see which direction people would like to see this taken into, i.e. connect compositions, tag sample sources, recording dates, track relative genres, etc pp. Many options & lots of work to be done on this...

Hello zoomorph and others around :-)

I'm trying to tag some of my files with info like "This Song is a Cover of <Artist>"
The API shows me the correct information for this release of Richard Cheese, Back In Black Tie, say, for track nr. 1: "T.N.T." -> "Other [Originally By] – AC/DC"

So, I'm trying to fetch a Credit-Role called "Other", which works ok.

Here is the formatting string:
Code: [Select]
$puts(ROLE,Other)[$flatten($multi_if($any($multi_strcmp($sextend(%<<TRACK_CREDITS_SHORT_ROLES>>%,%<<RELEASE_CREDITS_SHORT_ROLES>>%),$get(ROLE))),$multi_if($put(aj,$sextend(%<<TRACK_CREDITS_ARTISTS_JOIN>>%,%<<RELEASE_CREDITS_ARTISTS_JOIN>>%)),$joinnames($put(an,$sextend(%<<TRACK_CREDITS_ARTISTS_NAME>>%,%<<RELEASE_CREDITS_ARTISTS_NAME>>%)),$get(aj)),$get(an)),))]

Is it possible to only fetch this role if it is "Other [Originally By]" and not, say "Other [Anything other]" ?

I'm trying to only get the "Originally By" information, but how?

Cheers!

Hi to all!

I have one "small" :) question.

Can this plugin save artwork in separate folder or make new one if folder with name "Artwork" don't exist in folder where is some album?

Like this example:

With "Artwork" folder:

D:\Music\Jazz\John Coltrane - Blue Train (1957) [FLAC] {1991 MFSL UDCD 547}\Artwork

Without "Artwork" folder:

D:\Music\Jazz\John Coltrane - Blue Train (1957) [FLAC] {1991 MFSL UDCD 547}

I have large FLAC collection and some albums have "Artwork" folder and some of them don't have it.

Can foo_discogs make this "Artwork" folder when is downloading artwork from Discogs?

If can't, what will be path in foo_discogs for saving all artwork in "Artwork" folder if I make that folder by myself or if that folder is already there?

Now is this path (default):

$directory_path(%path%)

Thanks for all! I'm using player for years, now I have some free time and I want to setup some things if is possible.

Sorry for my English. :)

Hello again dear readers,

I'm having another issue with tagging my files  for this release.

Quote
(FATAL) Error: Error loading release 890301: Error parsing discs/tracks

[ESCAPE to close]

I can not find the problem, because no tracks are listed in the credits, or the notes.

Can anybody tell me, what  I need to fix in the release, please, to tag my greatly strangely sounding files ? :-)

Try this:
Code: [Select]
$directory_path(%path%)\Artwork\

This creates a folder "Artwork" in the folder, where the music-files are. If the folder "Artwork" exists, the fine component puts the fetched artworks into it.)
This works here. (dunno, why the darn screenshot was shrinked, but you might see something if you look close 8-) )

Thanks fuffi, that's it! Great!

I was using just basic staff in player but now I can remove some apps from my program files because in f2k I can do everything for my music collection.

I think I will have more questions about other options for some other plugins but I don't want to bother people every day.  :-[

Now I'm going to sleep every day after 3AM, only because I'm "playing" with foobar. So many options! :)

I'm fan of clean look and I don' want so many unnecessary things and that's why is foobar so great, you can do with him what you want (it's not like iTunes or some other players).

Now I need to setup component for preemphasis, maybe remove my old biography view plugin (I'm experimenting with JScript Panel)...maybe change color (I'm using DUI because I have some problems with changing colors in CUI) etc. but that's for other part of forum.

Thanks again for quick answer!

So I just downloaded this component and I'm a bit confused. Is it supposed to only write tags for the currently playing track? Because that's what it's doing. I have to stop playback to try to get it to write tags for a selected album.

Try reading this: https://bitbucket.org/zoomorph/foo_discogs
I also just "found" that link accidentially, checking the component in the Installed Components Window of f2k...
But it seems worth to get a basic understanding! And it has images, too 8-)

And to answer your question: No, it is supposed to tag all files you want, but you need to configure f2k to do so (try selecting more than one song and start the component again, with those selected tracks/files..)

Hi,
First, thanks a lot for this great plugin, i just found it and i'm already loving it, it's reaaaaaalllllly good.

I found 2 sort of bugs / or just annoying things that may be fixed and i just have no clue how:

1) Some albums come incorrectly named as artist name - album tittle.
The auto search starts to search for the artist and then filters the results using album name which is wrong and results with no results at all, as the artist name is incorrectly inside the album title too.
I say this is sort of a bug cause it would be kinda easy to subtract from the begging of the "album tittle" the artist name during the search, and should have little to no impact in generating results that it shouldn't.

2) Some album titles include things like "-", " ' ", " " ", and all those characters that are very often resulting in typos.
Auto removing them/ignoring them for the search, by replacing for spaces would result in a faster search too.

Another observation:
the discogs notes field could be remapped by default to comment tag.
