Hey Guys, great resources here, thanks to all that have contributed...

I tweaked the script to tailor it for my personal use to search for tracks rather then albums as I am working on fixing tags for a large singles collection.

In order to make it work I had to change the [IndexUrl] to search on song entity, but I kept getting no results until I dropped the %copyright% from the index as that is not returned by the API...

So now my initial search result index shows all albums that that track is found on... It works great for me now, except fr I wanted to show the track time to easily spot which version I have is the best match as a lot of versions of mostly dance music have different lengths...
(I did also drop some sort fields for which I personally had no use)

I am asking for help as I am not strong in the "expressions" dept, and I dont have a clue how to fix my script to show the track time in mm:ss instead of the Track Millis the API returns... Everything else works fine for me... if someone has some scripting knowledge to assist that would be great...

I would like this piece of code to show MM:SS instead of the raw API trackTimeMillis:

LENGTH

FindLine "\"trackTimeMillis\":"
FindInLine "\"trackTimeMillis\":"
SayUntil ", \""
Say "|"	

Thanks in Advance...
Here is a copy of my script for anyone to use or tweak if helpful:

I'm now back, i don't know what happened but since the recent changes on the forum, i couldn't post anymore, anyway, i'm keeping the script alive on my personal GitHub (search for jonaaa20 over there), anyway, i'm here to report a issue with a album, this also happens with the Stevehero and other tweaked scripts here...

This is what happens:

After some investigation, seems that this is a issue with their API, when you search for this album on the API, instead of showing the song data, i mean, publisher, track numbers etc etc, it shows the album data (album name, artist name and the year) and then the script fails... is there any fix? that's the only problem on the script.

Oh and i've almost forgot, if anyone is interested, that's my latest version posted on my personal GitHub (attached.), feel free to tweak the script :slight_smile:

Hello guys!

Today, my Mp3Tag source iTunes is displaying the following message:

12002: 12002: The operation timed out

But, my internet connection its ok.
What can it be?

Are you having the same problem?

Thanks!
Best regards,

David Jill

Just a guess: has your PC performed the switch to daylight savings time correctly?

Yes I'm in Brazil and everything is correct

I'm using Windows XP ... It always worked ... It was about 2 weeks ago that I did not open Mp3Tag ... And today, when I went to scan some songs, this message came.

I'm using the most current version of Mp3Tag.

Cheers!

Did you see this thread about TLS and XP?

Ohhh... I dont see this notice. Well, for u, iTunes source is ok today?

Thanks again!

The script is working fine.
