    Question Can't look up disk via "Manual Metadata Search"

    Hi,

    I am using dbPoweramp R17.3 on macOS 10.15.7 (Catalina).

    I have a disc that the CD Ripper app looks up incorrectly; iTunes looks it up no problems.

    I found the URLs to the correct disc on both musicbrainz and discogs, but I can't use the "Manual Metadata Search" dialog to populate the disc/track info.

    Disc URLs:
    - https://musicbrainz.org/release/0f5b...6-47ac667d47ad
    - https://www.discogs.com/Various-Give...elease/1492630

    I copy/pasted both of those URLs into the "Release URL" text box on the "Manual Metadata Search" dialog, then pressed the "Lookup Disc" button, but the lookup tool returns "No results found" with both URLs.

    What am I doing wrong here? Is this the "proper" way to do a manual lookup and metadata populate using musicbrainz/discogs?

    Thanks!

    I should also mention, I checked the dbPoweramp website, and followed the instructions about copying the URL to the clipboard on my Mac, and then opening up the Manual Metadata Search dialog, but nothing happens.

    I checked for instructions on these pages:
    - https://dbpoweramp.com/cd-ripper-setup-guide.htm
    - https://www.dbpoweramp.com/Help/dMC/CDadvanced.htm

    Whilst the manual page is shown, then you copy the URL to the clipboard.

    Hi, thanks for the reply. I copied the Discogs URL to my clipboard, then opened up the "Manual Metadata Search" dialog. The "Release URL" text field populates with the URL, but nothing else happens. Pressing the "Lookup Disc" button causes some action in the background, but then I get a "No Results Found" message in a label to the right of the "Lookup Disc" button.

    Is the metadata lookup session logged anywhere on my system? macOS 10.15.17/Catalina.

    Thanks!

    Re: Can't look up disk via "Manual Metadata Search"

    Additional debug logging of "Manual Metadata Search" feature has been added in dBpoweramp R17.5 beta 3-
    https://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showthr...Mac-R17-5-beta

    To enable:
    Open dBpoweramp settings, Diagnostics tab, enable "write debug logs".
    This will cause text files to be written to your Documents folder, with names starting with "DBDebug".
    The option is only active until dBpoweramp is closed, not remembered across runs.

    Please post contents of debug files generated during the failing lookups.

    For reference, I tried the exact same URLs on my Macs and everything seemed to work as intended, the information was retrieved correctly.
