Hello! I’ve been trying to scrape the multiple cover arts of an album, for example Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP. Is there a way to get all release ID’s of a specific release-group? Or do you have any other suggestions? Thank you so much!
welcome @dilos can expand on what you trying to do? then people may be able to help you better and explain what your trying to use release ID’s for if you wont to know if there is a better way as we are not mind readers sorry
Hello again @st3v3p I’m developing a plugin for beets.io which uses your database. I was able to scrape cover arts via coverartarchive.org/release/(musicbrainzalbumid). But now I want to add another feature to it. Some albums with several releases have multiple cover arts and I want to store all of them. I figured out if I can get all release ID’s of an album, it would make the process so much easier as I would be able to make queries for each release ID and scrape the cover art. Because currently, I can only store one release ID in beets.io’s database.
This is the more specific explanation of my problem and I hope that it is much more clear now
this is a bit above my head sorry but im shure someone will be along to help
Have you looked at the MusicBrainz API documentation? I’m pretty sure that can provide the information you’re looking for, and there are a number of libraries available to help access the API.
@rdswift Oh I did not know that there were some example queries: https://musicbrainz.org/doc/MusicBrainz_API/Examples I think I can find a way out by the help of these queries.

Thank you for your contribution. I will edit this entry for anyone who is struggling with such problem. Have a nice day/night
