Amazon Metadata source plugin not working
I just installed Calibre, and I'd like to use it to download the right metadata and covers for my ebooks. Unfortunately, it seems that all "metadata source" plugins aren't working properly
Here some examples. I have a PDF ebook with:
Title: D Artiste
Author: Matte Painting
Of course the data is wrong. The title should be "Matte Painting", with multiple authors, in the D'artiste series.
When I try to download the metadata with various plugins, I have zero results. This is a log extract:
Found 0 results
Downloading from Amazon.com took 1.11800003052
No matches found with query: u'http://www.amazon.com/s/?sort=relevancerank&field-author=Matte+Painting&field-title=D+Artiste&search-alias=stripbooks&unfiltered=1'
Barnes & Noble
Found 0 results
Downloading from Barnes & Noble took 1.51699995995
No matches found with query: u'http://www.barnesandnoble.com/s?store=book&keyword=D+Artiste+Matte+Painting'
In the first case, the plugin send to Amazon this query:
No surprise if it can't find anything. The plugin imho should be able to try also with a query like:
that would return the right result.
The second case with Barnes & Noble is weird. The query is right as it should be (try it in your browser):
In my browser, this query gives the expected results (3 books, one of them is the book I was searching). But surprisingly, the plugin log states "Found 0 results".
Someone can explain this behavior?

If you want to discuss the B&N results further you should do it in the [Metadata Source Plugin] Barnes & Noble thread.
