done, but no result.

Please provide a log about the scraping when you refresh an album.

OK, thanks, what results do you expect from which sites for these albums what are not returned by the scraper?

I tag all my music files with MusicBrainz Picard. So I expect the scraper to recover "Album Cover" and "Album info" which are not embedded in the files.


RE: Universal Scraper for Music Albums - olympia - 2020-04-28

OK, but have you checked that the expected missing art is available in any of the sites?

Yes it is. For example: https://musicbrainz.org/release-group/bf306022-c851-449d-a619-7864caddf5c7
if it can help: if I use The AudioDB Album Scaper it works.


RE: Universal Scraper for Music Albums - Karellen - 2020-04-28

Artwork exists at fanart.tv but I think it is using a different MBID to that listed at MusicBrainz. I have asked one of the fanart.tv moderators to check and confirm....

RE: Universal Scraper for Music Albums - olympia - 2020-04-29

Yes, the same on theaudiodb.com, this album exists with a different mbid:
https://musicbrainz.org/release-group/4b6d5132-4740-407a-b9ae-505d5f1d3e97

while on MB it is:
https://musicbrainz.org/release-group/bf306022-c851-449d-a619-7864caddf5c7

I guess this should be an exceptional case.
Or am I wrong and you have dozen of albums like that?

It seems to be fairly common. I have come across it a few times with my own albums.

With fanart.tv I have not found a way to lookup which MBID is in use for an album. Instead I try adding the correct MBID in the Add Album box. If it already exists it will advise "Album already exists" or something similar. If it does not exist then it states "Album added". Album added was the message I received when I tried adding the MBID.


RE: Universal Scraper for Music Albums - olympia - 2020-04-29

@docwra do you have a clue why the above is happening. Are you aware of any mass change of MB release group IDs?
That would be a real bummer...

Don't know, but on that particular album there was a merge of release groups last November:  https://musicbrainz.org/edit/65482113
might be the reason, although the dupe release group was only there for about 4 days before the original editor realized the mistake and merged.

Figured out how to check album id's at fanart.tv. It is using the same id as audiodb which is incorrect...

You are right. These are few exceptions.

I'm not sure about mass changes, but I have noticed an increased number of them recently yes.

If anyone finds different ID's then please report the album on TADB using the report feature or our forums. I will fix.
