Zune software - album search upgrade!
« on: October 18, 2007, 12:47:56 PM »

Hi everyone,

I'm not sure when this upgrade took place, but when I opened up the Zune software today, it looked like MS finally upgraded the metadata retrieval interface!  (the dialog that comes up when you right-click and select "Change album info")  It seems 1,000 times better to me so far... more accurate/relevant search results and unlimited pages of results, as far as I can tell.

Woohoo!

Why are you still sitting here reading this?  Go check it out! Grin

It does seem better than the old one. I wonder if this is what the new software will be using.

Wow, what an amazing difference.  I became so frustrated with the old system I gave up.  This gave me a reason to finally clean up a good chunk of my library.

That's encouraging. And fast.  As fast as Mediamonkey's look up tag feature which is the best I've found. I'm impressed. If that's a small little sign for that new Zune software, then good stuff is ahead.

Did you see the URL's shown in the "Find Album information" dialog ...

        fai.music.metaservices.microsoft.com

If you click on the Album Cover listed it takes you to ...

        shopformusic.microsoft.com/shop/album.asp?rid=windowsmedia.comproviderName=...

Interesting?

I'm glad to see this has improved.  When I first got my zune I sat and picked through my mp3's off and on for days until I got things pretty well straightened out.  I just went through and cleaned up a few more things and it's pulling up far better/faster results than it did before.

Looking forward to getting the rest of this package.
