If discogs will disallow such services I won't contribute to them any longer...

But isn't this something you should tell discogs in their own forums? I don't think they read here.
product feedback is always a good thing, when talking to the producer directly. otherwise, they'll never know you even exist :-)

The problem is that Discogs seems to see these types of efforts as irrelevant at best to their internal goals and at worst, a serious drain on their resources, so I personally doubt they want to help in these types of efforts. As well, it seems many forums, including Discogs', aren't really very tolerant of critics.

Nope, thats not the problem.

The most common "problem" is, that people talk at the wrong places and misapply their thoughs about XZY to the wrong people but don't realize, they never get heard or can change anything.
just go to the discogs forum, talk to them. thats the only thing you can do, actually, IF U want to be heard by the people which decide about the things you concern about.

But....if u don't want to be heard or change anything, and just moan around a little bit, than this is -of course- the right place :-)

But be aware, nobody will or can change a feature or a setting of the discogs API itself.

Hi, do I understand it correctly, that API restrictions are 1000 images / per user - per application / per day?
that wouldn't be a big issue if the creator of foo_discogs bubblegum brings the user login dialog for our plugin. I believe that everyone of us have the account anyway....

Is there any other plugin, similar to foo_discogs, for finding tag information?

Both plugins, as far as I know, need the whole list of tracks of an album in order to recognize it and retrieve the information from the servers.
I think they can not work in a single track just as foo_discogs did.

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


Yes, but why the similar discogs plugin for MediaMonkey still works great without any update needed?

Can you point me at the right spot to complain at discogs? I am lost in their forum / groups.

Thanks.

The API forum. Seems kinda obvious when you think about it wink.gif

Any workaround to make this plugin work except for manually searching and pasting links? Maybe there's just a single line that needs modification in accordance with current discogs' API and the thingy magically works again... one of those 'I wish I had the wits' moments.

having looked at the discogs forum, some major API changes are coming on the 22nd august and unless the component is updated, it will not work at all. IIRC, this component uses the XML feeds but those are being turned off in favour of JSON. also, authentication will be required to use the database search. i have no idea if this component uses that particular feed or whether it uses something more specific?? if it does, that will be more work for bubbleguuum.

that said, i have no idea why it isn't working properly at the moment??

MusicBrainz Tagger always responds "Nothing found" whatever I look for.
It can not retrieve any information.

So, am I right in assuming that this is not working at the moment [at all]? And, to seek an alternative until "it is fixed"?

Mp3tag can retrieve information from Discogs. Currently, it's probably best to either use the beta (as it fixes a few Discogs-related problems) or to use a custom web sources script. I like the highly configurable Discogs pone mod.

Is MP3Tags part of Foobar or a plug-in? And, how would you configure it to use Discogs?

I might have misunderstood your post. I didn't read "alternative" as "alternative foobar plugin". As marc said, Mp3tag is a standalone application. In case you were looking for a different foobar plugin, just ignore my posts. I didn't mean to derail.

The version downloadable here is the beta I mentioned earlier. It supports Discogs tagging out-of-the-box. (Mark a track. Go to Tag Sources -> Discogs.)

The other thing I mentioned is a script that needs to be installed manually (link).

As a standalone, I"v been using Tag&Rename for quite a while now. I also used dbpoweramp for conversion and ripping. How do these compare with other software solutions?
