OPTIONS ^

Music::Tag::Amazon accepts the following options:

trust_title

Default false. When this is true, and a Music::Tag object's track number is different than the track number of the song with the same title in the Amazon listing, then the tagobject's tracknumber is updated. In other words, we trust that the song has accurate titles, but the tracknumbers may not be accurate. If this is true and trust_track is true, then trust_track is ignored.

trust_track

Default false. When this is true, and a Music::Tag objects's title conflicts with the title of the corresponding track number on the Amazon listing, then the Music::Tag object's title is set to that of the track number on amazon. In other words, we trust that the track numbers are accurate in the Music::Tag object. If trust_title is true, this option is ignored.

coveroverwrite

Default false. When this is true, a new cover is downloaded and the current cover is replaced. The current cover is only replaced if a new cover is found.

token

Amazon Developer token. Change to one given to you by Amazon. REQUIRED OPTION.

secret_key

Amazon Developer secret key. Change to one given to you by Amazon. REQUIRED OPTION.

min_album_points

Default 10. Minimum number of points an album must have to win election.

locale

Default us. Locale code for store to use. Valid are ca, de, fr, jp, uk or us as of now. Maybe more...

amazon_info

Default false. Return optional info.

METHODS ^

required_values()

A list of required values required for get_tag() to work.

set_values()

A list of values that can be set by this module.

METHODOLOGY ^

If the asin value is true in the Music::Tag object, then the lookup is done with this value. Otherwise, it performs a search for all albums by artist, and then waits each album to see which is the most likely. It assigns point using the following values:

  Matches ASIN:            128 points
  Matches UPC or EAN:      64 points
  Full name match:         32 points
   or close name match:    20 points
  Contains name of track:  10 points
   or title match:         8 points 
  Matches totaltracks:     4 points
  Matches year:            2 points
  Older than last match:   1 points

Highest album wins. A minimum of 10 points needed to win the election by default (set by min_album_points option).

Close name match means that both names are the same, after you get rid of white space, articles (the, a, an), lower case everything, translate roman numerals to decimal, etc.

BUGS ^

Does not do well with artist who have over 50 releases. Amazon sorts by most popular.

Multi Disc / Volume sets seem to be working now, but support is still questionable.
