ISRCHunt: Is a songs ISRC already in Musicbrainz?

This was a no brainer, I added it.

Very cool! I’ve added this to the external resources wiki page - but people directed to the tool via there might be confused.

Perhaps the very basic ‘To check if a songs ISRC is in Musicbrainz, click the check button. If it is already in the database, the status will change to ‘1’, if it is not the status will become ‘0’’ could be added to the footer :slight_smile:

I usually use SoundExchange’s ISRC search tool. I’ve found that this site and ISRCFinder (which searches Spotify) don’t always have the same ISRCs for a particular track or album, and one will have tracks that the other doesn’t. My experience is certainly anecdotal, but I’ve generally had better luck with SoundExchange.

Is Spotify considered to have accurate info?

I would expect these ISRCs on Spotify to be provided by artists/labels, but mistakes can always happen and having more than one ISRC for a recording is not too uncommon either sadly.

Thanks for adding the site to the wiki!

The user interface needs some cleaning up indeed and some instructions should be given as well indeed.

ISRC Hunt has the same problem with these international URLs it seems:

Thanks for the info, something to work on :grinning:

Edit: where is this causing problems? I can’t replicate it.

Doesn’t work:
https://isrchunt.com/?spotifyPlaylist=https%3A%2F%2Fopen.spotify.com%2Fintl-de%2Fartist%2F0IbSQXOB0NAHFDe6MU9iFn

Works:
https://isrchunt.com/?spotifyPlaylist=https%3A%2F%2Fopen.spotify.com%2Fartist%2F0IbSQXOB0NAHFDe6MU9iFn

I see, easy fix, it works now.
Thanks for using the site!

Oh this is too good. Thank you for this tool! One of the most tedious things is finding missing releases to add, so this will be super helpful.

Three things
1: Would it be possible to allow a profile to be used instead of a playlist… and have it show me everything from every artist I follow? :laughing: Spotify – Web Player I am following 1,100+ kpop artists, if this could help me find every release missing it would be amazing!

2: It seems to remember status and send them back to the site which is cool. Would it be possible to have an option to hide ones already in MB so there is less searching through pages for missing stuff? Make it a bit easier to work through very large playlists.

3: A companion UserScript for this would be great. Like for spotify have it open a link for the artist/playlist currently being viewed on ISRCHunt, and likewise on MB if the artist has a spotify relationship added.

Thanks for using the site and the suggestions.

I need to think a bit about the first two, as they are not easily matched to the Spotify api. The Userscript would be easy to make.

Seems like there might be a bug for big artists. I’ve come across a number of ones where they have 2 pages shown on ISRCHunt but whenever I click the second page it says

No data available in table

Two example artists

Hmm, seems to be a known bug in the spotify api when using include groups

I will make it so that albums and singles can be fetched separately by entering
https://open.spotify.com/artist/7n2Ycct7Beij7Dj7meI4X0/discography/single
and https://open.spotify.com/artist/7n2Ycct7Beij7Dj7meI4X0/discography/album

ISRC Hunt is missing a release that I can see on Spotify or d.ontun.es:
https://isrchunt.com/?spotifyPlaylist=https%3A%2F%2Fopen.spotify.com%2Fartist%2F7LxEElDJFggnGX32f66rqd

Strange, when I test it on my local machine I see it. I will look into it.

Would it be because it isn’t available in the US and that’s where the server is located? https://atisket.pulsewidth.org.uk/?preferred_countries=GB%2CUS%2CDE&spf_id=54h57OaiRLRaBSyrnkCUnu&preferred_vendor=spf&no_deez=no&no_itu=no

Could very well be! Maybe I should make market and country configurable.

It is confirmed to be due to the market, I will make this configurable via a dropdown.

Will you be open to taking contributions to code?

I might.

Is it a one time thing you would like to add? Than I can add it. If you would like to add features more often I might open source it on github.
