Are you using the latest version of MM (4.1.28.1905)? The script requires the latest version since 5.7.2 to work properly.

Hi,

Are you able to help please?

I am using the latest Tagger, and am experiencing a few issues to say the least!

The tagging service is regularly listing all the tracks in the wrong order - and I have tried this with several different albums.

I had managed to get around this for a time, by re-starting MediaMonkey after I'd catalogued an album, but even this doesn't make any difference. Now, even when the titles are listed in the correct order, and I click on the button to tag, it will only complete a couple of song titles, leaving the others untouched, despite them being ticked to tag.

Any ideas?

Thanks for any help, in advance.

thanks for the answer!

sorry to hear that this useful function that i have used much over the years seems to be going away. To use Musicbrainz is not an option, lacks a huge amount of releases, don't use same genre/sub genre standards that discogs (that my whole huge library has). So only alternative is to do manual tagging of the not selectable tracks which is kinda against the purpose with using a tagger addon.

but,it's not all releases that have extra tracks so not the end of the world (even though i would love to have a function to add extra tracks for global tags) :)

reverting back to 5.71 for now :)

thanks

I know what he means.
Previously, if you wanted to, you could click the leftmost checkbox to unselect all tracks, then select the checkbox on the bottom list and it wouldn't change track name, number or disc number, but it would tag the "global" tags, like album, year, art, etc.
With the recent changes, doing the exact same thing only the art gets tagged.
It was kind of useful to be able to do that.

hi,
first of all (this being my first post) Thank you for a super-great plugin!
Secondly, something have changed that I hope it can be fixed

Sometimes the release in discogs has fewer tracks than the one I have, it could be a normal version and an extended version of the track where only the extended is in the discogs release (fx 15100301 that has the extended version but not the edited version that my version has).

Before, I could check the box for the local track and it would get tagged with all the info I checked in options, like label, year, etc etc.

But since a while back i can choose the local track, but it will not fill the tag with same info as the track in the discogs release.

Both tracks should have exactly the same info besides Title perhaps and it worked like that earlier so it would be great if that could come back.

Hi,

i'm happy that you like DiscogsTagger. :)

I know the problem you have. I need to change the matching algorithm, cause there was a bug. You used the bug to tag other version of a track. :wink:
I wouldn't change this.

You could try to find the right release at discogs (which is sometimes not easy, i know)
You tag the additional track seperately
You try to tag the release with Musicbrainz. If you try Musicbrainz, you can see in the upper drop-down list of the Tagger window the list with the number of tracks for each release. That is a big advantage if you search for a release with a specific amount of tracks.

I hope this tips may help you tagging your tracks.

Nice try ;-)

You write the Discogs Tagger User Interface for MM5 and i do the rest. Deal or no deal ? ;-)
I wouldn't mind helping, but I really don't have much free time these days and I don't wish to spend it programming after a full day of programming :P
I don't even do the projects I'd like to one day achieve.

Maybe you could talk to the devs and have them integrate it with MM5? Seems like it would be an asset for the software and most of the work is already done by you.

I'm happy that we fixed the problems now ! :D

I can't migrate the Discogs Tagger to MM5, cause i'm not familiar with JS as with VB. And the devs don't want to add a COM Interface like in MM4. :(
Well, considering that MM4 is reaching the end of its cycle and that there aren't likely to be many more changes to this script, maybe it's time you learned JS and gave it a shot? ;)
You would have an advantage which is that your code flow is pretty much established already and you'd be more concerned with language conversion.

Everything seems to be working fine, at least on the problematic albums we had identified.

I don't have a problem with updating MM version now. Not only did I fill a ticket and the issue will probably be addressed in a new version, but I'm now making the jump to MM5.
However, MM5 tagging abilities aren't near as good as discogs tagger, so I have to ask if you plan on migrating this script to MM5 in the future?
If not, I will probably end up using MM4 for tagging tracks (before adding to library) and MM5 for everything else.

Thanks! It looks like the song number issue is fixed at least for that release I posted. This is a huge improvement!
Great, this are good news!

I have a new question: sometimes I want to keep the existing song name rather than take a new name from Discogs. How do I do this while taking all the other new tags? I've tried un-checking the box next to the song name in the upper window in the tagger, but then I don't get the involved people etc so it sort of defeats the purpose of tagging ...
The checkbox you described is the right one.
I just tested it and if i un-check a box next to the songname, i see in the lower window the track with the existing song name and the tags are coloured, which will be modified.
The tag "Mitwirkende" = "Involved people"

Released a new version.

Now the bugs and problems should be fixed. If not, please report it. If yes, report it too ;)
