Ok, here are some items that we definitely want get into Jaikoz as soon as possible by the end of 2006.

1. Replace MusicBrainz Trmid with new MusicIP Puids
2. Grab cover art from Amazon
3. Provide user console and log to record what has been changed
4. Find And Replace facility
5. Row filtering
6. Hyperlinks to MusicBrainz Ids and all other urls
7. Speed up lookups from Musicbrainz

These might take a little longer:
1. Currently the columns in the Edit tab match ID3v24 frames, we need to make the edit tags independent from the ID3 Frames, and make them easier for users to edit.
2. Once we've done this we can plug in support for other tag formats, the first ones to be done will be AAC and ogg/vorbis.
3. We will also provide an easy way for users to translate Jaikoz into their language, and we will attempt a basic translation to a couple ourselves (probably Spanish and Italian).

One more fix, I'd like to see is a more graceful and tolerant exit strategy while importing. I had a few files with broken PNGs, and this aborted the loading of folders. There should be some way to report the error, but keep going.

I really am enjoying the power of this thing overall.

Jaikoz should always continue loading files, and list any problem files at the end. Some problems with loading mp3s with corrupt tags have been fixed and released today (Jaikoz 1.3.1), please try and let me know if you have any further problems.

This would of course be a cool feature. Although this is no technical problem, I just asked myself if it may isn't a legal one. I think you may even don't care about it, but I'm not sure if Amazon allows usage of their images for commercial software.

Do you know anything about it, or do you simply don't mind?

I've done some searching about it now. Amazon actually seems to be quite narrow-minded about that. From Amazon's conditions of use I've got the following:

Amazon.com grants you a limited license to access and make personal use of this site and not to download (other than page caching) or modify it, or any portion of it, except with express written consent of Amazon.com. This license does not include any resale or commercial use of this site or its contents; any collection and use of any product listings, descriptions, or prices; any derivative use of this site or its contents; any downloading or copying of account information for the benefit of another merchant; or any use of data mining, robots, or similar data gathering and extraction tools. This site or any portion of this site may not be reproduced, duplicated, copied, sold, resold, visited, or otherwise exploited for any commercial purpose without express written consent of Amazon.com. 


That sucks, as it prohibits you to download the cover art with your software from the legal point of view.

Would do you think about it / what are you going to do? Do you care to get a written confirmation from Amazon? Just wanted to point this out as you may didn't think about it so far.

It certainly isnt crystal clear, but I think from forum posting and the wording of the WebServices Licensing agreement it is ok , as long as there is a link back to Amazon (e.g Buy Album from Amazon) when you use Amazon Data.

See section 7 in the url below:

http://www.amazon.com/AWS-License-home-page-Money/b/ref=sc_fe_c_2_3434651_2/103-9292806-9423830?ie=UTF8&node=3440661&no=3434651&me=A36L942TSJ2AJA

A number of other apps pull artwork from Amazon and some of these are mainstream apps. I think that the theory about the link back is probably sound and so long as you keep this in the front end if you display the downloaded image you are probably fine.

I would be interested in the tool if it had FLAC/vorbis funtionality. I have made a GUI enhancement suggestion elsewhere, but no one else is jumping on it so I will suggest it here as well:

See this thread for more
http://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showthread.php?t=12424

If Jaikoz supported FLAC and had this type of interface I would be all over it.

This is nit-picky, but I don't like non-folders hanging out in my home folder. Could the license file be allowed to live in ~/Documents instead?

Thanks!!

This is a MacOS Issue, I dont think Documents is the correct folder to put this in, but putting it directly into Home is proabably not optiminal either Ill take another look.

I red a suggestion to use the information that a file is member of an album when matching musicbrainz metadata. I'd like to repeat that that would be a great option

for example - only 1 file in a directory is not matched, the others are all matched to the same album. One track that belongs to the album according to musicbrainz IS not matched to any file yet --> it should probably be matched to the file that hasn't been assigned metadata to.

Another cool feature would be if there would be a right mouse click option 'find album/artist in wikipedia'. This seems really easy to implement and would make a lot of information easily accessible

Ill take a look at something that takes the folder into consideration

You are right this should be easy to add.

I would find this extremely useful!!! I have a lot of albums where 1 or 2 songs appear to be missing from MusicBrainz. Another way to do it is that if they don't all match then the album for the entire group doesn't match (different release, etc.). I've often seen songs in an album match up to the single song or ep release instead of the full album. Makes for a lot of manual analysis and editing.

Album matching has been improved in the forthcoming release, out before the end of January.

Just in case the new automatic logic doesn't fully work...

If the update from existing musicbrainz tag action item would also consider using the disc or release ID (and song title) to find the unique song ID if the song id didn't exist that would be great. Then you could find the correct album and paste in the release ID in all of the songs, mass select, and update to get all of the info.
