#1

Get “could not load album …” on all albums if using beta.musicbrainz.org in options since a few days.

Downloaded versions 1.4.0dev5 (win_20160303110144) but no luck.

Any hints?


#2

What does Picard’s error log show?


#3

This is definitely not as it is meant to be and should be resolved :slight_smile: Still is there any specific reason you are using the beta server with Picard? Functionality wise there should be no difference for Picard ( same data).


#4

@Bitmap or @Zas, is beta.mb blocking Picard? Or can you think of something else? If not, I guess we’ll have to wait for them to produce logs.

@ chirlu

If you need a debug log, please let me know.

@outsidecontext

Used beta in browser and in Picard to use the same. The same data, but in my experience much faster.


#6

Looks like an issue with one of your collections perhaps? Does it work if you use non-beta?

(Oh, and I took the liberty of fixing the formatting of the pasted error.)


#7

Looks like collection data is not included. I can’t look into this in more detail right now, but could be a bug in the beta code.

OK, thanks. I just wanted to make sure there was no misconception of beta being more up-to-date or something. But please continue using beta, we need to catch issues like this one before they hit the live server :slightly_smiling:


#8

Non-beta is working right.


#9

I can confirm this, it is a change in how the web service handles results if you don’t have a release in any collection. I have filed the bug MBS-8845 for the server and also PICARD-798 to deal with this inside Picard. Thanks for catching this :slight_smile:


#10

This is now fixed on beta, thanks for the report.


#11

i was having ‘could not load album’ on most albums using musicbrainz.org (saved and dropped them in again over and over)… i just changed it to beta.musicbrainz.org and every album loaded fine.

1.4.0dev5

@offhook That’s due to the load issues MusicBrainz currently has and unrelated to the issue in this thread.
