I did know of muscibrainz before, but didn't use it and not that I am using it I must say, it's extremely useful. Thanks a lot.
I've got one request, though. It would be nice if I was able to have the musicbrainz album status and album type saved in a custom (ie user definable) field (I'm using release type for this purpose).

Regarding the date thing, I would rather have the option of tagging as year only. There is an inconsistency across the musicbrainz database where some albums have year only and others have year-month-day. This leads to a lot of problems in mobile music players.


My thought on the matter is that the onus should be on the player, not the tagger. Since the date format lists the year first, it seems trivial for the player to read only the first four characters of the tag. iTunes actually does this (I tag/convert in Picard/Foobar then use iTunes to load my iPod.)

Edit: It's actually not an "inconsistency". In MusicBrainz, the year section is required, with the month and day optional.

i like musicbrainz way of tagging mainly because of it consistency in metadata formatting (style)
then i use my way of dealing with %album artist% tag which isn't mapped in this component (according it's display dialog) but nonetheless it's wiped out when i use this tagger
can this be changed?

I like this plugin. It would be great if I could mark several albums and the plugin would find the information for each and update that info for every one. My library is rather extensive and it would take ages to do this for every album individually.

The discogs plugin can do something like that iirc.

OH YES!!!

Umm.... I don't think so - If it does, please tell me how to. Even finding the correct album with foo_discogs is quite trivial
Can't wait for a HD-AAC encoder :P

You are right. Discogs can't do that. Only ReplayGain knows to identify albums by tags and then analyses them separately

I like this plugin. Would be nice if it would also show up at the Rip-Audio-CD dialog under 'Information lookup' 
(I also don´t find it under Prefs/Tools/Tagging...)

I was annoyed a bit by this too... It really do belong in the Tagging group. Can you please fix that?

it would be nice if we could choose the default values for date. aka not to put full release date, but only the year

All you people bitching about the full date, why don't you just create a masstagger script to cut anything but the first 4 digits? Then anyone who is unhappy about foobar2000 default date format can be satisfied...

Or why not keep the additional data and just display only the first four digits? I really don't see the problem here and I like having the full release date.

Musicbrainz's Picard has some scripting abilities, for instance to remove " (disc 2)" and set discnumber to "2". I suggest something like this, or alternatively, if possible, a way of automatically calling Masstagger scripts.

you can delete what you don´t want before writing tags. I really don´t see a problem here...

Thank you. The component works very nicely. I have one proposal: Add the option to add the information for a given Album-ID. What I did is, that I searched for that album on the musicbrainz-website and created a tag "MUSICBRAINZ_ALBUMID" by hand and then performed again the action "Get Tags from ....". That worked fine. But it took some time...

edit:
May be even do the following. If I want to tag "by Tag" and no matches were found display a list of all releases of the artist (if the artist-tag is present). This way the user could select the fitting release.

Thanks everybody for your feedback. I've implemented some of your suggestions, enjoy version 0.2!

P.S. As topic title is not editable, can a moderator remove version number from it?

Thanks a lot for the update, Dremora. The new version works flawlessly and behaves just the way I wished for.

Thanks for this component and for the new version, it's working pretty good.

I just found a little bug in the context menu labels, it's really not important but well... Still worth fixing for the next release (see here).

Thanks for the update but I have one issue. For albums with multiple CDs Picard had the option to add (Disc 1) etc to the end of the album title but the only option with this component is disc number. Can you please add the other option as well. Picard uses the format
%album%[ '('Disc %discnumber%')'][, %discsubtitle%]
i.e.
The Greatest Album (Disc 1), Live Songs

Great Work!

Thanks for the update Dremora! I like the features in the preference page.

Is it possible to add a musicbrainz search also when opening/ripping a CD for the next version?
