Might lose Amazon API

Postby musoware » Sun Nov 04, 2018 9:44 am

Just a heads-up, Muso might lose the ability to query metadata from Amazon soon as they have changed their policy and will remove any API account that is not driving any revenue. The only way to do that through muso is to use the "Buy on Amazon" link for an album (assuming you have it in digital form only from some 'non-official' source and now want to purchase the actual media). Muso has generated no revenue at all this calendar year, so they may sever access. This will affect:

- artwork search (though it's only one of a few sources Muso uses for artwork)
- track listsing section on the album page
- reviews section on album page
- peers section on album page
- by similar artists section on album page
- you might also like section on album page
- buy on Amazon link on album page

So if you want to keep this functionality, please use the "Buy on Amazon" link if you want to officially purchase some album on CD or LP which you only have in digital form!

Thanks, Jeremy. Not a problem, as far as I am concerned.

I could try to create a new API account every time they sever access, but they would I think get wise to that eventually.
