Amazon.co.uk WebServices


#1

Hi I’ve installed to the latest version 2.46a and i’ve always used the webservices.Amazon.co.uk for tags.

When trying to use the service within the application i get a 403 error. Wireshare shows the following TCP transaction:

------------- TX -------------------------------

I have tried my earlier version of mp3tag v2.44 and webservices.amazon.co.uk still works.

webservices.amazon.com works fine…

Anythoughts?

Thanks

Nick

ps this is the header of the amazon.co.uk.src file

Well it looks i’ve addressed this problem by using my amazon.co.uk.src from my other PC, using MP3Tag v2.44

The headers are:

[Name]=Amazon.com
[BasedOn]=http://webservices.amazon.co.uk
[IndexUrl]=http://webservices.amazon.co.uk/onca/xml?Service=AWSECommerceService&AWSAccessKeyId=045ZGZ60B4A7NQEJRMR2&Operation=ItemSearch&SearchIndex=Music&Keywords=%s&ItemPage=1&ResponseGroup=ItemAttributes,Small
[AlbumUrl]=http://webservices.amazon.co.uk/onca/xml?Service=AWSECommerceService&AWSAccessKeyId=045ZGZ60B4A7NQEJRMR2&Operation=ItemLookup&ItemId
