Musicbrainz Query Typo


Recommended Posts

I noticed this morning forcing a metadata refresh, this:

2018-10-21 10:04:23.455 Info HttpClient: GET http://musicbrainz01.eastus2.cloudapp.azure.com:8080/ws/2/artist/?query="rtists"&dismax=true

When I manually entered the query into my browser, I got empty XML.


<metadata xmlns="http://musicbrainz.org/ns/mmd-2.0#" xmlns:ext="http://musicbrainz.org/ns/ext#-2.0" created="2018-10-20T20:25:28.908Z">
<artist-list count="0" offset="0"/>
When changing the query to "artists" I got data returned:

Running Emby Server under Linux. I imagine this isn't Linux-specific but an actual bug. Not sure where else to file this.

Hi, what data were you expecting when searching for rtists ?


I'm gathering that this is data sourced locally and then searched against MB by your response? I figured it was a bug but if this is music content with a typo that Emby is then searching against, I can go through my stuff and see.

Correct, the rtists must have come from a tag embedded in your audio files.


And you're right - I found the offending titles. My mistake. Thanks for pointing it out.
