Looks great.

I'm getting errors with album titles that have ' in the name.

Edit: I'm terrible at programming but I think I figured it out:

From: http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.p ... _structure
This MM-specific implementation of LIKE, automatically uses the @-sign as the escape character and it is always applied. It means that you need to modify the SearchString to correctly use this function.
So I used this instead @ line 166

Code: Select all

	   CorrectSt = Replace(inString,"@","@@")
      CorrectSt = Replace(CorrectSt,"_","@_")
      CorrectSt = Replace(CorrectSt,"%","@%")
      CorrectSt = Replace(CorrectSt,"'","''")
Seems like it fixed it...

This is an idea that I've given thought to a few times. Certainly has a lot of potential. RYM can have several different issues of albums and such, and people tag their albums differently, etc. Thus, I think a nice idea (if possible) would be to manually associate your albums with albums on RYM. Something like the way Auto-Tag works (I'm referring to Amazon here), in that it does a search and shows you a list of options which lets you choose the one closest matching the album you're tagging or what have you. I think an option to account for non-rated tracks in the rating would be a good idea too, because if only two tracks out of ten have been rated and given five stars, I wouldn't really consider that a five star album... you know? The non-rated tracks should (optionally) weight down the rating. This is something Trix does with his MediaRok script. If I were to use this script, I would also like the Ownership/MP3 setting to be option. To me, if I already have an album marked as owned on CD... it's redundant to then mark ownership as MP3, you know?

I think I had some other thoughts when I initially read this thread before work, but... that was 9 hours of hell ago, so... though yeah, improvements in performance (and I'm referring to the number of calls and such) would be the biggest improvement you could make. Granted, some of that depends on the developers, but... yeah.
