The logic and future of Music scrapers?
#12
last questions for tonight.. i promise

about the info the album scraper needs to return:

- 'album.release_date'
do we use this in kodi? it's not stored in the db afaik.
in case it's needed, in what format (localization) does the scraper need to return the date?

- 'album.release_type'
am i correct in understanding we basically always need to return 'album' here?
we're an album scraper.. we only scrape albums..

- 'album.type'
i think this a subtype to the 'release_type' value?
musicbrainz has the concept of 'primary type' (album) and 'secondary type' (live / soundtrack / compilation / remix)

- 'album.userrating'
pretty sure it's not up to the scraper to provide this info

- 'album.compiliation'
compilation is in 'various artists' or 'greatest hits album' by a single artist?
if it's the first, i guess it's up to kodi to determine this based on artist/albumartist tags?



btw. there is no metadata site that provides 'artist.instruments'
perhaps it's worth dropping support for it?
Do not PM or e-mail Team-Kodi members directly asking for support.
Always read the Forum rules, Kodi online-manual, FAQ, Help and Search the forum before posting.
