I tried every way to search that I could think of, including entering the album's MBID directly into the search field at the top, but all were unsuccessful.
Hi !
Thanks for your post and your detailed information about your problem.
If you enter the MBID into the search field at the top, you have first switch to "Musicbrainz Tagger" in the top left options.

I don't know, why it doesn't work for you, i tried to search for the album with "Manual Search":

i found the album on the third position:

I willl add it in the next release ! Thank you for the hint!

I love your Tagger - it's the feature I use by far the most often in maintaining my library. Apologies if this has been requested before, but the old (and dearly missed!) 'auto-tag from Amazon' feature let you override or make corrections to the proposed new values by simply typing directly into the auto-tag grid prior to clicking the 'auto-tag' button at the bottom right. Discogs Tagger doesn't seem to allow this, and it can be a real challenge remembering and making the necessary changes after the auto-tag dialog closes. It would sure be wonderful if this feature could be enabled again -- and many thanks for all your great work!
You can override the values in the lower window by doubleclick on them. The value immediatly override the old value, no matter if you push afterwards the "auto-tag" button or not. This is a bug (?) in MM.

Override values from Discogs or MusicBrainz?

Album exists in MusicBrainz but not found by Tagger

Subject pretty much says it all. I have an album called "Bach Organ Works: Preludes and Fugues", with artist name of James Kibbie. It exists in MusicBrainz, but I can't make it appear in Discogs Tagger 5.77. I tried every way to search that I could think of, including entering the album's MBID directly into the search field at the top, but all were unsuccessful.

Here is the link to the MB page for the album:
https://musicbrainz.org/release-group/7 ... 7a5fd3faa0

(A probably unrelated issue: MB shows the format of this album as 'Digital Media', but that entry does not appear in the pulldown selection lists in Discogs Tagger - should maybe be added?)

Fortunately, I was able to work around the problem using the MB Picard app, but would sure be quicker and easier with your Tagger. At least I didn't have to manually enter info for 33 tracks!

Thank you for your post Etherknight. I'm happy that you like Discogs Tagger. :)
Lowlander said it, IE is used by MM, so without IE the Addon wouldn't work. But i will take a look, if i can do something better.

I used Directory Opus the last time on my Amiga many years ago. I loved it. And i looked with a big grin to Windows Explorer, the poor Filemanager of MS. :wink:

MediaMonkey 4 uses IE internally which is why any browser windows are opened in IE. This can't be changed by the Addon developers.

Thanks for creating this extension. Over the years it has been a great help, and I've been using it since it first appeared in 2014, or was in 2013.

Anyhow, I've a new PC, and have it set up just the way I like it, so installed MediaMonkey, and the Discogs Tagger, which is where I ran into issues. In attempting to authorise the tagger, when I clicked the link in the popup, the popup attempted to access "The Internet" via first Windows Explorer then Internet Explorer. This proved a challenge since I don't use either Windows Explorer or Internet Explorer, and neither have access through my replacement firewall anyhow.

Though I was able to reset my defaults and Authorise Discogs, it would be great if the extension went straight to the default browser and opened the link, instead of navigating through Windows applications.

I hope this is updated in future versions, but I get if it's not a huge priority. My system, my problem, and there was a workaround.
Thanks for the continued support and development. :)

To anyone interested, these are my replacement programs:
Explorer: Directory Opus
Browser: Firefox
Firewall: Windows 10 Firewall Control

Using the discogs website is usually faster and more accurate to find some of the more unique albums I'm trying to tag. I can get really frustrated with the MM extension when I know which release I want, but trying to figure out what to plug into the extension to get there is a matter of loading then unloading a dozen different choices.
Your feature request is implemented. You only need to paste the discogs number into the upper drop down field.

Proper Case is Discogs standard, which is what I use. I am noticing a shift to Proper Case in Last.fm as well.

In my opinion, Title Case is just a mishmash for music titles.
I am glad to see them moving away from it.
Thank you :D
Proper Case for english music title is correct, but a music title in my (german) language in Proper Case looks "wrong". Misspelled. So i use both options for tagging.
Providing options is even better. 👍

I checked the issue yesterday.
If my VPN was active then the calls "https://www.germanc64.de/mm/oauth/check_new_v2.php" were rejected. I also tried to switch to "Msxml2.ServerXMLHTTP.6.0" for this calls. If I called the URL directly in the internet explorer then I received an error message.

After deactivating VPN I could open in the internet explorer "https://www.germanc64.de/mm/oauth/check_new_v2.php" and the tagger was working.

And today I started MM and guess what: discogs tagger is working in VPN again. Seems that yesterday my VPN blocked germanc64.de for some reasons.
So it was not a problem of the new version :-)

Thank you and kind regards,
Cyd

since 5.77 I get an error message if I'm connected via VPN:

Code: Select all

Error #-2146697211 - msxml6.dll
The system cannot locate the resource specified.

File: "D:\Program Files (x86)\MediaMonkey\Scripts\DiscogsWebTag.vbs", Line: 7336, Column: 3
With 5.76 everything was working fine.
Where can I get the 5.76 version to double check if the issue is not on my machine?

Thanks, cyd

PS: your tagger is my most used add-on! I love it :) Thousand thanks for sharing it with us and your work :)
Hi cyd !

Thank you for your post. I'm glad that the Tagger help you tagging your music files ! :)

Please read the following post from another mediamonkey user using vpn: https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewt ... 99#p470899

Changing back to 5.76 would not help.
