Hi,

why is there no plugin that checks any selected tracks as an album using AR checksums for comparing the results with the AR database?

That would be handy, since foobar2000 would do all the conversion.

Anyone who wants to write such a plugin? Would be awesome! laugh.gif

EDIT: Thanks for moving the thread and giving it a better title. blush.gif

Some things to consider...
  • There shall be no any limitation regarding the source of the tracks used. So lossy files get decoded to PCM, just like losslessly encoded files. It doesn't hurt if the plugin is held dumb enough to not be bothered whether the source was lossy or lossless. In fact this might even be useful to verify that a false entry based on a non-CD-source has made it into the AR database, in case someone has a hunch that a specific "release" has made it into the database.

    Of course, checks on the decoded output must apply, namely that it is 16bit, 44.1kHz PCM. And maybe it's also wise to not allow internet radio streams as input for this plugin, in case it's possible to check this. Or else the user who accidentally chose such a playlist entry might wait forever for the plugin to finish.

  • Don't object: "but why any tracks? you mean you want to select some lossy files and see if they make up an album that is present in the AR database?" -- No, I don't want to do that, maybe once or twice just for the fun of it. But although it doesn't make sense to check random tracks as one album, there's also no reason why this shall not be possible.

    To make myself clearer: I think the grouping of tracks for an AR check should be implemented more or less exactly like the grouping for replaygain was done... i.e. "treat selected tracks as one album", "treat selected tracks as album(s) (using tags)".

  • There should be a log output, that can be copied and pasted or even automatically written to a file using tagz script for creating that file's name. Not just a window that says "Album was verified as being accurately ripped."/"Album couldn't be verified as being accurately ripped."

    The log output should resemble the output of the AR.dll for the time being... and maybe later, even better it could be written using user-defineable templates.
Any more ideas? Objections?

That's what I think most people will have. Either the drive offset was corrected be it manually or with the help of AR, or it wasn't corrected at all, but most of the rips are done with the same drive.

So for offset corrected rips that have not been AR-checked while ripping there's no problem at all.

And for those rips that have no been offset corrected, a single setting for this component to use a temporary offset correction would also suffice.

In cases where the user who didn't use to care about offset correcting bought a new drive and he still can sort the rips by date and use a different offset for the tests on each batch of rips.

As a deluxe solution I was thinking about an EAC log parser that in combination with a drive offset database can do this on a per rip basis, but that probably is overkill.
