Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

EAC 1.6: "Can't connect to MusicBrainz!" ??

I discovered I was using a very old version of EAC (1.2, IIRC) and updated to the latest I could find, 1.6, which had changes in it to accommodate the big changes in song information lookup databases these days.

Now whenever I try to get info from the provider "MusicBrainz" the popup window puts up an error message, saying "Can't connect to MusicBrainz!" - is this happening to anyone else?

The particularly weird thing about this is that the very first time I tried to use MusicBrainz as the provider, it apparently worked - it allowed me to get the track info for the disc and even search for a cover image. Now, I just get this error.

I would have asked this on the EAC forums, if there were still any official one.

Is anyone else having this issue?

I checked EAC 1.5, 1.6 release candidates 1 and 2, and 1.6. I couldn't get the MusicBrainz plugin to show this error message (unless I disabled the Internet).

No issues here either. Working fine.
