Thread: Manual Metadata Search Missing Select-Screen for Discogs results

    Manual Metadata Search Missing Select-Screen for Discogs results

    I am currently trying out CD-Ripper and like especially the PerfectMeta features.
    But I think that some improvements concernings Discogs Meta Data are necessary.

    I have tried to rip "Iron Maiden - Slave to the power" 2-CD.
    It is unknown at all standard metadata provider but it is in discogs
    https://www.discogs.com/de/Iron-Maid...elease/4722555

    If I use manual metadata search only one (wrong) CD is found. At Discogs you can find 8 if you search for "Iron Maiden Slave to the power".
    Also it is currently impossible to enter the URL of Discogs (https://www.discogs.com/de/Iron-Maid...elease/4722555) or the Discogs ID directly (this would be a very useful feature)

    Therefore I suggest to expand the manual metadata search a little:

    1.) One more search fields for Discogs ID or Discogs-URL in the Manual Metadata Search dialog
    2.) A new results screen if more than one results are available and the correct one can be selected.
    MP3Tag has such a screen which is very helpful and easy to use:
    Select-Screen.png
    I suggest to do it in a similar way
    3.) You can think about to add also a "adjust tags" page. Sometimes it is useful for example if all tracks are in one list in discogs and you have a 2CD.
    Here it is an example how it could look (also from MP3tag):

    Best regards
    Michael

    Run cd ripper, bring the manual metadata search page and copy that discogs url to the clipboard, the manual lookup will then fetch that url automatically.

    Thanks for the prompt reply. Very good and useful feature. Works fine!
    Currently the word "Clipboard" is missing in the corresponding description in the Window:

    Could you please add it in the next Hotfix. I think afterwards it is clear for all users how it works.
