dremora, do you plan to implement something like this at some point?

Last time I checked, it was illegal to use libofa with foobar2000 (cause it's GPL). It has even been discussed in this topic. Moreover, I was told PUIDs are going to be replaced with some other audio fingerprinting library.

I think that the length (in samples) of every selected track should be a multiple of 588.
The only conclusion that now comes to my mind is to use freedb if i like to fetch data based on track length rather than album/artist tag

Well, you sure can if you don't care about the quality of your tags

No, i have to because i have "get tags from TOC"only in rare cases in my context menu. That was the initial point of my posting.

Sorry, I didn't understand you. Do you mean there are cases when “Get tags from freedb” returns correct results, but MusicBrainz TOC menu command isn't displayed?

First of all let me say sorry for a wrong information from me: as i started to play around with musicbrains i tested with 10 or 11 albums. It was a coincidence that almost none of them didn't had the TOC command. After having a look in in more albums it appears often enough. 

But apart from that: yes, there are some cases there freedb return correct results but the musicbrains toc command isn't displayed.
From what does it depend whether the command is shown? How has a album to be ripped?

This and no more than 99 tracks should be selected.

What's funny, I've just chosen a random album from my media library (where TOC command is missing) and tried tagging using freedb — to my surprise, the album was recognized. I've studied the request made by foo_freedb2 — it just rounds the number of samples to the nearest multiple of 588. That's going to be implemented in the next version of foo_musicbrainz, thanks for the observation

So that means that the command won't be missing then? Happy that i helped although what you called observation was more absolute helplessness.

This ...

My question was more like: From what does it depend whether length in samples is a multiple of 588?

Generally all music ripped from CDs should obey the rule of 588 samples (as it is the size of a CD sector). There are some lossy formats, though, which for some reasons change the length of a track by adding or removing several samples. In case of MP3 it also depends on the version of encoder and its settings. Default MP3 conversion settings in foo_converter combined with lame.exe yield tracks with no length changes.

Do you use some lossy encoder (what settings)?

WMA?  LAME with -t or -nogaps switch?

Dremora it's possible to make in future sync between fb2k ratings and MB ratings. Both uses 5 star system. I think it's possible because as I know Picard can do this. 95% of music have MB ids and will pretty cool if we have possibility to automatic send ratings to MB if it have MBIDs. For example album ratings may calculated by middle ratings of all it songs. Artist rating may be calculated by middle rating of all it albums.

I found this thread about ratings as well as this stat and rating component but I don’t know if there actually is a native foobar2000 ratings functionality at all.

This plugin by "Peter". As I know this is author of fb2k. Yes it's optional component, but and Monkey's Audio Decoder is also optional. But I can't imagine fb2k without this plugins and I think 95% of users use this plugins. I think that Peter add support of MB to his foo_playcount component very tiny. So it will be awesome to add support of submission rating from foo_playcount component to foo_musicbrainz.

Sorry I was 5% of users then

Hey Dremora, it seems that the plugins is tagging using the recording names instead of tracklist’ track names.
It might be a wanted feature for some people but maybe it could be switchable for people wanting tracklist’s track names instead ?
Or we could have the choice at tagging time (if they differ), or something like that…

EDIT: Same for track artists, it’s currently fetching the recording artist instead of track artist.

Recently "Get tags by TOC" stopped working for me, I always get "Response from MusicBrainz: Not Found". However "Get tags by Artist & Album / MusicBrainz AlbumID" still work np. Anyone else having this issue?

I confirm it doesn’t work any more for me either.
If we click add TOC to MB we can see the TOC is correct. It’s just the WS that’s not working for the get tags from MB by TOC.
It’s very recent (maybe 1 or 2 days only), they might have changed something in the Web Service…

Confirmed. Using foobar2000 v. 1.1.8 beta 2 with MusicBrainz Tagger v. 0.3 beta 2.

Because of this bug we’ve been intesively using the Get tags from Musicbrainz (by Musicbrainz album ID).
For this we usually copy a URL (like “musicbrainz.org/release/64ba9c60-c71e-47fc-bfef-9b58c3ddf7bd/*”).
So could you allow the pasting of any such URL in the text field and automatically trim it to only keep the MBID with the following matching regular expression for instance :
Code: [Select]
([a-f0-9]{8}-[a-f0-9]{4}-[a-f0-9]{4}-[a-f0-9]{4}-[a-f0-9]{12})


This would accelerate things by only having to do CTRL+V, ENTER instead of editing out the URL stuff.

TOC lookup is working fine for me again, so it must not have been component related.

Isn’t it strange that TOC commande appears even for non Audio CD playing ?

What do you mean? I'm using '...by TOC' with image rips and it works perfectly as it should. Are you talking about non-44.1kHz files or about files that don't match the Red Book sector size?

Wirruna, you can do that by doing a Library search like: MUSICBRAINZ_TAG PRESENT
(insert the tag you are searching for). Similarly, you could use foo SQL Tree, which also offers such searches.

Emerelle, thank you, MUSICBRAINZ_TRACKID PRESENT worked perfectly. I had tried Library Searches before asking but couldn't get them to work.

Dremora, thank you for MusicBrainz Tagger, it is a great plugin.
