So far I'm very impressed with Headphones.
I understand the MusicBrainz issues causing slowness, but a little patience is all that is needed.
I do have one feature request, I know it's been mentioned before in a form,
but I like to keep up to date with Chart music, and would love to see this regularly check for a specific chart (by input of a custom string?) and download, retag and check for duplicate files on a specific date?
eg. Search for "Official UK Top 40 Singles Chart %d %m %y" every Sunday.
or. Search for "VA Billboard Hot 100 %d %m %y" every Saturday.

So is the 503 and the "there may not be any official releases in this release group" the same problem?

I'm having a really dense moment here - I've installed the windows exe version of HP, but can't find the /lib/ folder in order to edit the webservice.py file. My install went into C:\Program Files\headphones_win32build\ but there is no lib folder.
What really painfully obvious thing am I missing here? I promise I've scanned through the thread and found nothing!

That is not possible with the compiled version - you cannot modify it.

Ah I see - knew there had to be a downside to taking the lazy option! Will there be a new version with the option to do this, or is it worth my time long-term to go the python install route?

Is it time to block old Headphones yet? I really miss this working

Been doing a few things on my end, in the develop branch. Updated to the latest beets library, started moving over to the musicbrainz-ngs schema, jquerying up the config page finally....
But the most important thing I'm working on is getting rid of the damn 503 errors. Musicbrainz put a rate limit on headphones, so basically only 150 hits can get through every second. That seems like a lot, but we're really hammering their servers (my original code for requesting musicbrainz data isn't helping :-))
The quickest way I know to fix this would be if someone can set up a musicbrainz mirror. I know HenryFord set one up already, but he mentioned that it might be slow, and I was hoping to improve the preformance with a mirror (at least until musicbrainz changes a few things on their end to make data fetching easier).
So basically it would be a temporary workaround for a month or two, until everything is worked out between headphones & musicbrainz.
If anyone wants to volunteer for this, send me a PM so I can put in the new host details in the next update. If need be I can pay for hosting it
Thanks again for bearing with me on this ! :-)

Thanks HenryFord. You are too much :-)
Just pushed up a version that lets you choose which mirror you want to use (so far just musicbrainz & tbueter) - but it also lets you use a local mirror if you want.
Also, there were some weird circular imports that were slowing things down - with the new server it's actually pretty speedy now!
Thanks again :-)
