Hello,

I am having a problem with getting this to work. I type the following location for the repository and i go to install from zip and it is empty.

https://techdealer-xbmc.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/repository.techdealer-1.0.1.zip

I tried a few times double checking spelling and still no change. I am using a Raspberry Pi with latest Gotham.

Thank you
I downloaded zip from github link in Op. I was having similar problems with adding repo. Worked for me and wow was certainly worth it. Great music addon [emoji106]

Mate i see no problem there. Tried myself to recognize your struggle, but everything works flawless. Where did you type the repos address in?! I don't understand this part. It should be downloaded with your normal computer. let it zipped just like you downloaded, move it to a path that you can access to from xbmc. Now, my first post again

It is working now. I downloaded the repository again and it installed. Not sure why it did not the first time.

Thank you

What is the best way to search for albums? Awesome addon, I have been using it more and more using artist search then most popular songs.

I took a look in the search for albums and made an improvement.
I changed the last.fm search albums method from artist.getTopAlbums to album.search. As a result will be possible (in the next update) search for albums using the artist name or album name.
In the current version (0.0.4) the best way is to use the artist's name.

thanks techdealer, musicbox along with mp3 streams are the best 2 music xbmc addons in my opinion, really appreciate your efforts. was going to post a question about the searching by tag in '8 tracks' which is what i did a lot with the unmaintained xbmc.org 8 tracks add-on when i just chose a few tag words and got a playlist depending on my mood. Then i bothered to read the updated 1st post after the addition of 8 tracks part of this add-on and want to say thanks for incorporating the tag: into the search function, very clever and works well!

Excellent addon.....managed to obtain some very obscure tracks which I've been after for years. The dl function is really fast too.

Thanks for this techdealer.

great add on, do you only get certain visualisations depending on which platform you're on? I'd like to have Vortex on Pi with OpenElec but it's not an option:(

For the ones which don't know atraci, it's a spotify like application (http://getatraci.net/) that uses youtube as media source. By changing the content provider in the addon settings from vk.com to youtube you'll get this kind of behaviour integrated in this addon.
So the addon will behave like last.fm api integrated with youtube as the content provider. Your own mtv or vh1 :)

I logged in with vk and lastfm. I'm so happy that you add that features to your addon. But every time I use backspace now to navigate to previous menu the message "Last.fm - Logged in successfully" is shown when I'm at 'User Space' section.

I tried a bit and commented out line 1257. It fixed the never-ending login messg.

Yes, visualisations depend of the platform in use and are independent of the add-on.

Is already fixed in github, thanks for reporting.

The last.fm/8tracks login messages should appear every time you open the "User space" menu. You think you found a bug or want an option (in settings) to hide these notifications? I did some tests with my last.fm account, opened my favorite sounds and other sections and then I went back with 'backspace' and found no problem.

Ok, on my system the message appears when entering the user space too, but also every time I use 'back' in the user space. (entering 'my music' in vk, leave it - message appears). I thought it could be a bug
