Earliest release date from Discogs

Post by yhsiuqs » Tue Sep 01, 2009 10:07 pm

***Update***

The newest version (2.0) by wxdude can be found in the thread http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... =2&t=66766




Hello!

After many initial runs, here is the 'release' version 1.000 of my EarliestDateDock script. It is a dockable panel that automatically grabs the earliest release date of the currently playing song, displaying the search results. It also auto-saves the date if it finds a match. You can always select another match from the returned list if the auto selection is incorrect. I was looking for a script like this for a long time...after reading many posts and downloading many promising scripts, I decided to make my own.

NOTE: You will need to enter your discogs API key in the panel before it will work properly.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Here is a link to the installer:
See link above for the latest...

And here is the code:

This seems very useful, but I receive an execution error when I run it.

Got it working. No worries here.

This would be a really useful script. :) Check boxes and 'Apply' button don't work for me.

Alright, I wanted a quick solution, so I modified the code to just show the current saved date against the earliest retrieved date. It doesn't start automatically, you will need to hit the start button. Also, I can't get the screen to update every time it populates the treeview with another item...any help would be appreciated.

Let me know what you think...

This looks like a very interesting script and I would be willing to check it out once you iron out some of your hurdles.

Isn't there any script that updates the tracks with the original release year ?

The above script seems promising but.... why is it so quiet here ?

How do you make sure the earliest year within the years is correct for that particular track? Auto tagging with the exact discogs release would be accurate but this doesn't looks promising since discogs search results are not very precise...

Alright, I have updated this to just search out the earliest release date of the currently playing song. It is now dockable as well. You will need to input your API key from discogs before it will work.

***See first post for updated link***

Just copy the file in the link to the 'Scripts\Auto' folder in the MediaMonkey directory. It isn't perfect, but I find it works better than anything out there that I've found.

Let me know what you think...

Here is the code:

I have sorted through 20 or 30 song files so far, and this script has been right on with its date matches (doing it automatically-nice). I have been looking for a script to do exactly this for a long time. Great script yhsiuqs!!!
It took a second to realize i needed to paste the discogs key into the input field in the dockable window.

This has great potential to become one of my favorite scripts!

Okay...I updated the script to show you the search results. It will still choose the earliest release date, but now it will show you what is was before as well as the potential (and selected) results. It will also save a 'Date Corrected' text in the Custom5 field, so you will know what has been fixed already.

I am still trying to figure out how to make it so you can choose a different result if you didn't like the automatic choice, but it gives me an error...any help would be appreciated!

Here's the link to the file - once again place it in the 'Scripts\Auto' folder of the MediaMonkey install directory.

Quality script mate. Just need a bit more control over it e.g.
  • be able to update mp3s in bulk
    be able to choose i.e. 'apply' the change, as opposed to it automatically applying the change
    save the old dat in another 'selectable' tag when it overwrites it
    be able to update year without having to play the song
Might seem like I'm complaining, but I'm not....this is an absolutely wonderful script and a million times more than what i could create (which is nothing at all!!), but for it to be an absolute winner, it just needs a bit more control from the user.

Thanks...I am still using it :)

Hy yhsiuqs

I am search for long time for a script to change the year to the newest release.
Is it possible to turn on/off the script, so that i could define which song tag be changed ??

Thanks for your great script and sorry for my bad english
