Update: AcousticBrainz Mood Plugin

beaTunes4 logo

For the last 1.5 years, lots of you have taken advantage of the AcousticBrainz plugin for beaTunes. I've finally found the time to move the source code to GitHub, so that it can be found in the same repository as the other sample plugins.

While doing so, I added two features:

  1. You can now choose, whether the plugin should replace existing mood values or not.
  2. You can ask the plugin to embed mood attributes in the id3 v2.4 TMOO tag.

Please note, that to retrieve mood values from AcousticBrainz, MusicBrainz ids are required. beaTunes makes an effort to find those, but may not always succeed. Also, keep in mind, that the values AcousticBrainz offers are based on a statistical model. In other words, the accuracy may vary.

You can install/update the plugin via beaTunes' Plugin preferences. Enjoy.
