Actually, I just want to clarify, it’s the visual glitch, but it’s also not actually working either. Closing the Options is causing the same behavior as un-focusing. Selecting it to show a red X doesn’t actually disable it, nor does just clicking one time. The only way for me to actually disable a plugin is to use the delete function from the plugin options panel.
Yanking them out after quitting Picard technically works, too - but it also appears to leave the application in a broken state.
Though I will admit, the behavior that happens after yanking API Seeds Lyrics is a bit useful.
The API seeds deal is, just yanking the API key will keep it from running premium credits down during trial and error scanning / swapping album releases/versions. But it then chews at the free allotment which when that’s run out for the month, it causes delays and lag due to the “too many requests” bit.
I almost feeling like seeing if the options window can be made to stay open so plugins can be switched on/off right away. Once that is working, that is.
Turn off Album Art fetching … pretty much any other plugin that fetches data external of the metadata from the MB DB.
With regards to that whole thing, I still say fetching album art, lyrics, et al, for albums because scan matched a single track to a 150+ track release … is a waste of time. Then you change the release to another version and it just chucks all that what was queried … and does it again.
I know, the debate could go on forever I suppose. Another way to describe it could be purgatory. A center column, between left and right. From the left, to the center, only fetch metadata, and when that’s all the way you want it, move it over to the right so it can grab cover art, lyrics, whatever else.
