I’m setting up beets for the first time but I can’t get the
mbcollection plugin to work. I’m not understanding the documentation, and it doesn’t seem to be behaving as I’d expect.
On the plugin docs page it says there’s a
collection option but no info on what value should go there. I’m assuming the MBID of the collection, but that’s just a guess. Regardless, no matter what I put in that option beets is trying to update a different collection and failing with an HTTP 400 error. I don’t know how to get the log to see why exactly. It also doesn’t explain what the
remove option should have as a value. Here’s the relevant section of my config:
musicbrainz: user: myuser pass: 'redacted' auto: yes collection: mbid_of_collection remove: what_goes_here
And here’s what happens when I try to run the
$ beet -vv mbupdate user configuration: /config/config.yaml data directory: /config plugin paths: Sending event: pluginload ImageMagick version check failed: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'magick' ImageMagick version check failed: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'convert' artresizer: method is (1, (0,)) inline: adding item field multidisc inline: adding item field disc_has_subtitle library database: /config/musiclibrary.blb library directory: /shared/Lossless Music Sending event: library_opened mbcollection: Updating MusicBrainz collection a_different_collection_mbid... error: MusicBrainz API error: caused by: HTTP Error 400: Bad Request
