Yes you should try it out and test it if possible

You could also save the ID in the COMMENT field first and in the src file change the line
[SearchBy]=
to
[SearchBy]=%comment%


Tested the discogs release test now. No problems. The discogs-id-in-comment-thingie works fine.

Instead of
The History Of The House Sound Of Chicago
the scripts retrieves:
The History Of The House Sound Of Chicago

That is one space too much after the third word. Strange one...

Edit: hmm, this forum cuts the extra space, but it's there.

I'm a total newbie to MP3tag but I'm a big fan of discogs and am looking for a tool to tag my music files from discogs and it looks like mp3tag will do exactly what I want to do.

But I've tried installing the program "out of the box" and I get an error connecting to discogs server. I suppose this is because I need to install one of these discogs Web Source scripts in the specified Application Data folder.

I've tried doing this but given that I'm also a complete newbie to scripting can someone tell me how to edit the script file (remove all lines and comments starting with #s ?) to get it to work with mp3tag?

Or even post a pre-edited "ready to use" script file that will allow me just to run an artist or album search on discogs to snag the rest of the data (year, cover art etc.)?

Perhaps I'm just stupid and missing something if so then obviously let me know wink.gif

If you get an error, please write the exact message and what script and what search term was used.

No, these are just different or newer scripts.

I don't know what you want to edit and for what cause, every script here works as it is, no need to edit anything.

OK. Sorry. Just realized it was my firewall (Norton Internet Security) that was blocking all internet connections from Mp3tag, even though I'm sure I'd asked it to authorize all connections on installation blush.gif

Anyway. Thanks for the reply. I'm up and running and all the scripts do indeed work as is.

Sorry for any confusion caused!

Hey, I'm just posting the two discogs scripts I am now using all the time.
Both are for use with the discogs ID and retrieve the usual info + info like mixartist, publisher, etc. I made them by following the instructions of Dano in this thread [EDIT: actually it was a different thread...], but It may be a bit hard to reproduce all necessary steps, so I'm posting them here.

One script is for almost all cases and the other one is for various artists releases where the artist is not called 'Various'. It only fails if the artists are written like 'Artist1 & Artist2' instead of the usual 'Artist1 / Artist2'. Maybe this last flaw would be easy to fix, no clue ;-)

Edit: This is rendered obsolete by a better script now!

Tracks get wrong numbers when it's an 2xCD release

see:
http://www.discogs.com/release/227030

Would be nice too, if the script could get the cd number and write it together with the album name.

Buddha-Bar V By David Visan, CD1

or

Buddha-Bar V By David Visan, CD2

I also have a question concerning multi-cd information on the discogs source. I tend to rip a cd at a time and build the directories based on the CD number:

Renaissance - The Classics (Disc 1)
Renaissance - The Classics (Disc 2)
Renaissance - The Classics (Disc 3)

All works fine for disc one, but disc two through MP3Tag gets the same tags as disc 1 because I can't work out how to offset the returned information.

So is it possible to restrict the return from discogs by tracknumber or possibly through another attribute that lists cd number? Or can I do a string comparisson on the filename to the returned track names?

Any pointers would be much appreciated as I am just how powerful this product is smile.gif
