iTunes source for tag

Post by workino » 01 Aug 2014 16:42

Hello ,
is possible in one of future release insert possibility for metadata editor to retrieve also data from iTunes? I found it was more accurate than amazon sometimes for cover and data of songs.


Best regards
Gabriele

Not sure, if an open iTunes store API or web-service does exist, which is allowed to be queried just for general metadata updates...but if, I'll take a look.

No that is not possible.
I would so see no real value in such Interface being honest.

The Apple Search API is intended for affiliates. This to web sites or apps generating revenue for the Apple Store. It is not intended for pure metadata lookup. Each affiliate app needs to be approved be Apple.
I do not think, that ProppFrexx falls into that range.

I also do not see much value for ProppFrexx, as it would only be useful for CD ripping. as in any other case you should already have the meta data?!

But if you´ve got old stuff at your library it could be usefull. A meta data update function would be great, cause iTunes has in my opinion the best library.

That like was already given above and doesn't change things.
