Solved Top Music Tracks from Artist
#1
Another feature I have always missed in XBMC is to be able to see the Music charts for an Artist.

This helps when browsing new artists to find their best songs.

I wrote an API here:

And someone has even wrote a xbmc python script to return the details here

https://github.com/phil65/script.extendedinfo

So now we just need someone to integrate that into a skin or add-on Smile

The final idea is to have a feedback loop when browsing music artists to find the best tracks, even if you don't already know the band.

would love to see something similar to IMDB 250 (on the video side of things), but with the Rolling Stone Top 500 albums/tracks.

I actually thought about this already as well Wink

The top 500 album list is auto generated from sales figures

http://www.theaudiodb.com/topalbums

Of course all available from the JSON api

I could also do it based on the score out of 10, but need people to score their favourite albums first.

One of the best ideas in a long time, but do any API's support this?

I'm not sure what you mean by that. The API is already written and is live:

Examples
U2- http://www.theaudiodb.com/api/v1/json/1/...0.php?s=u2
Coldplay - http://www.theaudiodb.com/api/v1/json/1/...s=coldplay

Just needs someone to write a simple add-on really.

Was this idea pursued? Still a great possible feature.

Check out the recent update to:

https://github.com/phil65/script.extendedinfo

If you noticed in the documentation there is an update:

Code:
#########################################################################################
TheAudioDB
#########################################################################################

RunScript(script.extendedinfo,info=mostlovedtracks)         --> MostLovedTracks.%d
- fetches most loved tracks for the given artist (TheAudioDB)
-- required additional parameters: artistname=

Basically this means that any skin creator can now add music charts

Let me know if anyone implements it in a skin. Could be amazing to show the most popular tracks while browsing an artist.

Neato. Did I get it right, that it's just up to a skin now to make use of the feature?

Yep correct.

All right, cool. Left a feature request at Ronie for his Transparency skin.

Apparently this is already in Aeon if you want to test. I'm using the verson 5 so have not tried Phils version yet.

Hmmm, I downloaded all the scripts and the master skin from Phil's thread but I can't find them. Huh

Edit: Found it. Where should I report my opinion about the implementation? Here or in Phil's thread?
