MusicIP lookup seems to work okay with MP3's but when I try it with my MP4 files I get the PUID lookup / network error problem.

I've attached log files.

    Hi Matt,

    MusicIP/AmpliFIND actually get PUIDs for your MP4s, but unfortunately fails to return more meta data for the songs in question. Are these actually audio files or videos?

    Thanks,

    Sample response:

    <genpuid songs="1" xmlns:mip="http://musicip.com/ns/mip-1.0#">
      <track file="/Users/matthewjackson/Desktop/unsorted/Raphael Saadiq - Stone Rollin.mp4" puid="ab2baf3f-8298-ccac-e459-2ebcbcd3d0fa">
        <puid-list>
          <puid id="ab2baf3f-8298-ccac-e459-2ebcbcd3d0fa"/>
        </puid-list>
      </track>
    </genpuid>

    Perhaps that's the reason: The content is different enough from the regular audio only version, that MusicIP/AmpliFIND has a hard time mapping it to the right info.

    but it still doesn't retrieve any info.. ?

    "don't analyze audio" means that if MusicIP does not know stuff about that song, it analyzes the song. In essence its only good for MusicIP and other people who benefit from your analysis. It has nothing to do with retrieving any info.
