Re: Discogs Tagger 5.39 (Updated: 2016-04-04)

Just released V5.39

Now the check if it's already in Discogs Collection can be turned off (in the options menu)


I added the option to delete duplicated entries in label-tag and catalog-tag.

Many releases have the name of the label more than once in the tag

e.g. Label: Roadrunner Records; Roadrunner Records; CBS


If the option is set, the script delete the duplicated entries in the tag

e.g. Label: Roadrunner Records; CBS

I don't know why the labels are stored more than once at discogs
Metal up your ass !

Because the same label can have more than one catalog number.
Example : https://www.discogs.com/Moody-Blues-Cau ... se/7416196
On my modified script it produces:
Decca; Decca; Decca; Decca; Decca - 7416196 - BOX 744/45; XZAL 15.090P; XZAL 15.091P; XZAL 15.092P; XZAL 15.093P - Vinyl, LP, Album
That's a good mod you provided. I have to try it.

Thank you!

Gratulations to your work so far!

But I've got a severe problem with the field-separator. A slash ('/') is used in MM.
The script stores a list of multiple genres with this separator, instead of replacing it with the internal used semicolon ';' which is used for writing values to IDV3-Tags when entering multiple genres in the detailsmask of the track.

Example with a song from Warpaint - Love Is To Die.
The Song is tagged in MM with Genres 'Shoegaze/Indie Rock' in MM (two genres are listed in column-browser of MM).
The genre of the song shown directly in windows is a list separated by semicolon: 'Shoegaze; Indie Rock'.

Now I try to tag the file with the script:
The Skript realizes differences in the Genre although there are actual none.
After saving the values with the script the genres are corrupted:
Column-browser of MM shows only one single genre (consisting of the whole, slash-separated list!), windows also shows as genre the whole list 'Shoegaze/Indie Rock'.

So whenever tagging files with the script, the files are corrupted and multiple genres are not stored correctly.
Syncing to my mobile leads to hundreds of genres, because the genres are stored as one concatenated string.
Any hints or suggestions?

Sorry for the delay. I needed some time to understand and test the problem you described.
I found the following :

- There is no standard for the separator in id3v2.3
- Windows recognize ";" as a separator, "/" not
- If you tag files with ";" and change the separator in the appearance-option, mm show the new separator in the list, but the files still have ";" as the separator.
- The files aren't corrupted, some players / programs didn't accept all separators, so the players / programs show the genres as one genre.

Suggestions:
If you would see the genres correct in your player, you have to find out, which separator your player recognize. This separator you have to use in mm.

I hope i could help you.

Hello crap_inhuman,

thx for your reply. I just came back from holidays, that's why i answer so late.
Since i'm using MM on my mobile, too, I think that the problem is not the used player ;)
Maybe the problem is the handling of a non-standard separator like the slash within the tagging script (wich is my absolute favourite tool for tagging within MM!).
The script writes the separator back to the tags without previously converting it back to standard semicolon as MM itself does when storing a file.
Whenever a file has been tagged by your script even MM doesn't split the genres correctly anymore.

Hello ftisch,

i have an easy solution for your problem.

Change options -> appearance -> Split multiple-value fields with: to "; "

After that you can tag the files without having problems!

Hello Crap-inhuman,

Thank you very much for your extension, that is the most useful i ever seen for MM.

I use it everyday, and it is now indispensable for me.

Since today, when i try to tag from discogs, it asks me to authentificate over and over, and always fail.

Did you notice the problem (or is it me) ?

The problem appeared one time a few months ago, and you fixed it.

I hope you can do it again.

Thanks again for the time you spend improving your great extension.

Have a good day

Hi tatave21,

i'm pleased that you like the Addon.

I just tried and have no problems.

You can authenticate the addon again. Delete the two lines in MM -> Tools -> Options -> Discogs Tagger -> Access Token and Access Token Secret
Then start the addon again.

Have a good day, too !

Hi crap_inhuman

Thanks for your advices.
There's was no token in the options/discogs.
After a few tries, it works again (i removed then reinstalled the addon)
Oddly, i have no more discogs menu in the mm options!

But it works, and that's cool.

Thx again

No Discogs Tagger menu? This is strange. You should try to remove the addon, restart mm, and installiert again. Install only for you If Windows ask.
