Title: CueTools 2.18 - retreieving disc data
Post by: itisljar on 2021-03-17 08:43:46
Hello!
I am stumped.
In CueTools 2.17, when I transcode images, I click on GO, CT finds the disk online and provides me with the choice from which provider to get the data. Sometimes, I get no results, which is expected. Now in the new 2.18, I have two buttons below, MusicBrainz and CTDB. When I click  on these buttons, I am transferred to web pages of these providers, where I can see that there are results.
I am guessing I should be able to select results there to apply tags to files, but I can't figure out how.
Below, at the bottom of the windows, I can see that CTDB has 8 results, and AR 7. How can I apply the tags?

I'm wondering the same thing as well, is it submitting the information or is it doing something else entirely?

These two buttons allow you to quickly navigate/lookup the album in either MusicBrainz or CTDB.
See code:

In case of MusicBrainz it is required to be logged in there.
Some tooltips will be added, to clarify the purpose of these two buttons.

Yes, I've noticed I can navigate the release, but what about that? I had a release where only freedb tags were downloaded, but when I clicked the CTDB button, it lead me to that proper release. It would be great if I could select it so the tags can be applied.

You couldn't find the same release with the Metadata search set to Extensive?

No. Funny thing, that.

I've just tested it, on 2.1.8, and it's the same behaviour with 2.1.7.: whether extensive search is turned on or set at default, I can't find album info. Then, in 2.1.8. I click on CTDB button, and voila!, there is the album I was searching for. And below, 17 CTDB results, 2 accuraterip results. So, it's not some unknown album.
