I too am having that problem. I found that if you go into artist, you can scrool through the various list of artist and can add them from there. It is a real pain, but there is a way. Not sure what happened with search but the add-on probably won't be updated which is sad.

You can fix this yourself by editing the file default.py within plugin.audio.mp3streams:

Simply do a Find/Replace of "http://musicmp3" and replace with "http://mp3music".  If you don't include the "http://" in your find/replace, searches will work, but you will break the link to play the MP3s.

The searches should work again, and many lists that weren't working should work again.

GOAT I tried searching for the "http://musicmp3" but found nothing. After looking at the file, all the entries had .ru after them http://musicmp3.ru. Is this the one to change. If not, please advise where to locate in default.py. thanks

Yes, those are the ones to change.  I was intending for you to use an editor like UltraEdit and do an automatic Find/Replace, but if you want to go through manually, you can.  The reason I included the "http://" is that you don't want to replace the ones that are "listen.musicmp3.ru", because that will break playback.

GOAT  This so I am on the same page as you, I need to replace "http://musicmp3.ru" with "http://mp3music.ru" ?  And a replace will change all of the entries in the file ? Sorry for the trouble, but I don't want to mess up the addon so that it does not function. It is one of my favorite addons.  thanks

Correct.  That will fix search, but break the "Artists", "Top Artists" and "New Albums" sections.  If you can find the addDir commands  for those sections in the code, keep them at musicmp3.ru. 

The Billboard Charts section also doesn't work because the billboard.com site has changed.  Some regex work is needed there, and I haven't looked at it in depth.
