When I do an "Update library" the script only scrapes data for artists and albums which were newly added to the library. It does not update the artist and album information which have been added to the library before changing the allmusic.xml file and which have this Allmusic copyright issue message. A "manually" refresh for each artist separately the does do the trick, but that's annoying.
Any idea how update the library in one scratch other than deleting and rebuilding it from scratch ?

I think your only option is to delete the music database (MyMusic##.db) and let it rebuild completely.

AFAIK this is a long standing issue with xbmc, and there is no way other than to do the dreaded "start again"

I do wish this would get some attention.

Let us know if you find out there is a way!

Wouldn't it be feasible to rely on other sources then? I mean... there is a lot of stuff around which is like allmusic.com - musicbrainz.org comes to mind, discogs.com is another example.
Could be that I am completely missing the point here - only read the first page of the thread Wink

All comes down to someone writing the appropriate scraper Wink

For openelec users, I don't think a working method has been posted...the advice in previous posts is incomplete.

You must first copy the addons from the read-only system section:
/usr/share/xbmc/addons/metadata.albums.allmusic.com
/usr/share/xbmc/addons/metadata.artists.allmusic.com
/usr/share/xbmc/addons/metadata.common.allmusic.com

..to

/storage/.xbmc/addons

..and THEN copy in the file from page 3 on this thread to this folder:

/storage/.xbmc/addons/metadata.common.allmusic.com

(this will get xbmc to first use the local copies rather than the system level addons, and then you add teh appropriate changed files).

I can confirm the above method works with Openelec nightlies and I am getting album reviews, artist info, pictures etc.

Big thanks from me too!

thanks for this great fix!

edit

for ubuntu, the path of the file is

/usr/share/xbmc/addons/metadata.artists.allmusic.com

but for unix newbies, you fill NOT find this by pressing home and navigating... you have to go back one level from "home"... something called the file system... not terribly easy to find/understand, but nevertheless, for anyone else on linux who is not having success, the above path is the folder to put the modified allmusic.xml file

cheers!

does this work with 12.0 alpha

i didnt have a xbmc addon in my application support, but it was inside applications/xbmc/resources/addons etc

when i update now, i get no info at all, its just blank and the "blabblablabla cant get review is gone" but now its nothing there

tried everything, doesnt seem to work with 12.0 alpha. FACK :/

Copy it it inside applications/xbmc/resources/addons/allmusic common etc

When i scan/refresh i got no info

Hi
in linux its at
/usr/share/xbmc/addons/metadata.artists.allmusic.com
which is near the root of the system... so not within your user profile if you know what i mean...

Thanks,
Mark.
