Hello

Yes some time after posting the comment, i installed that missing lib and the plugin could start, but, i still don't have any context option, and at some point i had some connection error which seemed to randomly pop up (gentoo here).

Here's a suggestion of what you may use as genre list , listing all of them should be extensive enought in >90% of cases

http://www.jamendo.com/en/albums (right side)
http://www.last.fm/music/+tags/
http://verseguru.com/?music/list%7Cgenre

The little issue i have with blacklists is that i have no idea how you could fill that (lot of manual filling ?). Maybe add "www" in the blacklist it should work in a lot of cases, even stuff like "listen" shouldn't be in a blacklist because of "easy listening".

As for the match i'd suggest some fuzzy match, but something like no more than 2 characters to avoid something like "best _rock_ in the world".

Hello

If i was you i d better try to find a place that list a lot of different tags/music genre, then use this as a whitelist, maybe do stuff like not be case sensitive or fuzzy match in case stuf is misstyped.

But i can hardly imageine you can list all the bullshit peoples use as tag, whereas, there are something like 20-30 tags which must amount for >90% of genre tag.

Btw i get an error when trying to run your script ... a bit too lazy to check why now, i guess i ll wait for the next update. - Apr 17 2008
