Couldn't show results - Bad request - Auto-Tag

Post by neronerd » Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:28 pm

Unable to auto-tag
Get error "Couldn't show results - HTTP/1.1.400 Bad Request

MM v4.1.19.1859
OS Windows 10 (fully patched)

Uninstalled all scripts
Turn off FW
Placed PC outside of FW
AV disabled

Still unable to auto-tag
Only thing I haven't done is uninstall and reinstall

Anyone have any other ideas?
Do I need to change freedb settings? Is Amazon changing things again?

I'm curious...
The resultant pages for the searches for Amazon based on (for example) album or artist are the same. Why can't those be parsed for the information for autotag?

I don't have details on the backend results that the APIs were returning before - was there a specific format that they were being returned in that could be "built", perhaps, from the item page(s) instead of relying on the API?

This could then be called through the OS browser, and be just another web page being pulled up rather than a call to the API.

...Or am I missing something because I lack the information about the API calls or resultant data?

Just a thought ...

1) There are no plans to "fix" Amazon tagging, it has been disabled by Amazon.

2) It's far more complex to parse data from a webpage then using an API.

3) You can't just get data from a website without permission to do so.

4) So for now, the Japan variant still works, and there alternative options like the Discogs Tagger: ... ta-lookup/

5) MediaMonkey 5 (in testing) will has other sources build in.
