Well, the oddball genre is definitely coming from “Use Work genres…” After a whole bunch of poking and prodding, I figured out that the specific song was also on a single, and that is where the other genre came from. I did a search in Wikidata for the work name, and it gave a single result which was a single. The search did not find the album I’m actually working with. Must be my misunderstanding of how Wikidata works. I’ll get there.
So, the plugin works as designed, and now I have some thinking to do. My first thought is that I would rather have only the genre attributed to the work as it is on the album. My second thought is that more is always better. My third thought is that all the tracks on an album should be the same. My fourth thought is that they could all be different. My fifth thought is that I’m spiraling.
Just a thought, but what about a limiter for the work genre to only include the genres as listed in the current work? Seems like it would add an order of magnitude of difficulty, and I’m not sure how useful it would be. Or, maybe a selectable number of genres from each source to include, like the “Maximum number of Genres” setting in the Metadata/Genres menu in Picard itself; that might be more useful.
The upshot is;
- The plugin works as advertised, and is awesome.
- Suggestion for an option to select the number of genres to add from each source.
- I have to rethink what I’m actually looking for in a plugin to assign genres to my tracks.
- This is way better than the Last.FM plugin for genres.
