Thanks for your work on this, Olympia. Much appreciated!

Hi, awesome work here. How do you enable the scraper to fetch album reviews from allmusic? Not really got a clue about coding so i don't know what part of settings.xml i need to change.


RE: [Release] Universal Scraper for Music Albums - olympia - 2012-06-15

Did you look at settings.xml? It's not coding at all, it only involves some common sense and logic.

You see this for albumreviewsource:
Code:
values="last.fm|None" id="albumreviewsource"

Then you see this for example for albumratingsource:
Code:
values="MusicBrainz|allmusic.com|None" id="albumratingsource"

I suspect it's not a very difficult to guess the riddle, is it? Smile


RE: [Release] Universal Scraper for Music Albums - brettawesome - 2012-06-18

I tried that before i asked the first time and the reviews weren't getting scraped. Fair enough, i'll do it manually.


RE: [Release] Universal Scraper for Music Albums - olympia - 2012-06-18

I can't follow. What will you do manually?

@olympia: the scraper is working for albums with multiple artists/ composers. It scraped The Dark Knight, Lola Rennt & The Social Network.Thanks.

I tried adding allmusic.com to the values and the reviews weren't scraping through. Unless i'm missing something the only real option i have left is to copy/paste the allmusic reviews in.


Re: [Release] Universal Scraper for Music Albums - olympia - 2012-06-20

did the option allmusic.com showed up in the scraper settings after you added?


RE: [Release] Universal Scraper for Music Albums - brettawesome - 2012-06-21

Yeah.


Re: [Release] Universal Scraper for Music Albums - olympia - 2012-06-21

right, and did you check on the musicbrainz site if the artist(s) in question has the allmusic link registered as mentioned in the scraper description?


RE: [Release] Universal Scraper for Music Albums - ady199 - 2012-06-21

I've set this now as my default Album (and Artist) scraper - can anyone let me know how I can re-scrape my complete Music Library using this scraper? I was using the AllMusic scraper before and it hardly found any of my albums

Thanks in advance

Completely remove your musiclibrary and start over or manual refresh each artist and album

Hi all.

I was using allmusic until it broke...though with limited success. Now with Universal it seems to find barely anything in my collection, even some well known older titles, only some new albums. Sometimes the search box comes up then disappears, other times it prompts to enter name etc then just repeats

It's my first foray into sorting out XBMC for music, as previously just movies, but a lot of my older several year old mp3s dont have any id3 tags. Do the searches only go by ID3 tag, which would explain perhaps why some don't attempt to search for it. If thats the case is there any way to do a manual search for the album.....or do I have to look at getting them all correctly ID3 tagged up on the pc (a huge job I don't fancy but if it has to be done.... Sad )?


RE: [Release] Universal Scraper for Music Albums - Midnight Tboy - 2012-06-21

sorry....just to answer my own question

"Your audio files MUST have a valid ID tag for them to work properly in the XBMC music library" from the wiki.

Damn....guess I better find a good id3 tag mp3 manager for the pc
