Fetch Discogs album by ID


#1

Hello,
For the moment, I can only fetch Discogs album by looking by name. But sometimes, it doesn't work (example: https://www.discogs.com/Various-The-Legacy/release/5842119).
Could it be possible to enter the ID of the Discogs release instead?
Thanks :slight_smile:

Hmm, I have no problem to open this URL ...
https://www.discogs.com/Various-The-Legacy/release/5842119

The URL is OK in a browser but you can't have it work with MP3Tag.

Any clue?
I encounter this problem very often. For example, with this album: https://www.discogs.com/DJ-Marta-Vol-4/release/7088876

How can I get it from Discogs in MP3tag?
If I enter "DJ Marta", it doesn't find it.
If I enter "Vol. 4", I get a "401: UNAUTHORIZED".
If I enter "Vol" it shows a bunch of results but not the one I'm interested in...

EDIT: Another one I can't get: https://www.discogs.com/Obsys-Fantasy/release/8437740 What should I enter in MP3tag so that it fetches the good one?

Have you seen Discogs (pone mod). It's very extensive and also comes with a Tag Source for searching by Discogs Release ID directly.

Kind regards

Hi,
Yes I saw that, but I really don't understand how it works...
It doesn't come with any tutorial and my first approach is very less user friendly than your native Discogs feature :slight_smile:
I just want to do the same as your feature but with precising the release ID and not searching the album title.

I've added a Tag Source that allows for searching directly by Discogs Release ID with the latest Development Build Mp3tag v2.82d.

Thanks Florian, this is just perfect!

This is now fixed with the current Development Build Mp3tag v2.83a.

Kind regards
