Title: freedb Shut Down, Closed Now. What now?
Post by: OLSCOOL on 2020-09-27 17:14:36
HI ALL, I'm using 2.16 and now that freedb has closed down(for Good) I'm stuck with single track filenames, no access to V/A button. Will there be any new patch on the way? Thanks in advance for your help/replies.

CUERipper retrieves all metadata from the CUETools Database (CTDB) only.

I wonder if you can use MusicBrainz instead.

Thanks, I've never used/tried MusicBranz but of course I 'm willing to learn. It's in gracenote or maybe it got it from the disc but it's only showing the names of the songs not any of the Various Artists of those songs. though. I've started to digitize my 500+ cd library somehow I'll get though it. This disc from what I see isn't in any database and it's not a promotion cd either. Again thanks.
