[WS] MusicBrainz XML Webservice

Did this script ever write the Release Group ID? Or how come some of my files have a release group and some don't... I never used any other program then Mp3tag for tagging my collection, so I'm a little confused right now, because it currently doesn't seem to add the release group... And I can't see that it had an update in a long time either...

After yesterday's update on the MusicBrainz search engine this script stopped working.

Can anyone tell if the changes made to the search engine were too significant for this script to be updated easily?

Can you please try with this tag source?

That update to the Mp3tag default MusicBrainz script is working fine although I was looking for an update to the MusicBrainz script posted on this topic, since it allows to search for Album + Artist (making it much easier to find an album that shares the same name with others).

Thanks for your help anyway :smile:

EDIT: Just for the record, I'm talking about this .src file in particular. It was updated by someone else and uploaded on this thread (can't pinpoint now) a while ago:

&MusicBrainz v2#&2 Search by Album A&rtist ( ID Tags).src (9.2 KB)

You can either update the script from this topic by replacing
ext:score by :score

or update the official one with

[SearchBy]=$regexp(%album%,'[-+!(){}\[\]^"~*?:\\]',) AND artist:($regexp(%artist%,'[-+!(){}\[\]^"~*?:\\]',))

I'll probably also include the search by artist with the official one for the next release.

Just tried your suggested fix (replace "ext:score" with ":score") and it worked!

Cheers :smile:

Something changed with MB's XML output due to the inclusion of an xml header on line 1. A simple joinuntil "</metadata>" at the beginning of the album section of the script should suffice.


Thanks @ms6676749! I've updated the official tag sources with Mp3tag v2.99.

Any interest in adding Release Group ID to this fabulous script? I wouldn't ask, but Kodi seems to have standardized on that tag in particular for some reason and having mp3tag write it would definitely make life easier. Thanks.

I've added it to the official script, also added a Artist + Title search

Brilliant, thanks so much!

Tanks a lot for updating the script.

Could you please add the "releasecountry"? I dont know why, but some months ago it shows up while searching, but not when applying. I miss that entry (ok, I do it manually, but the comfort). Thanks in advance

added Release country, barcode and catalog number again

Wow, thanks a lot for this quick help :slight_smile: I tried it myself, but i didnt get it right... Thank you dano

Hello ! I wrote my request in 'support' and they kindly ask me to write here.
I'm using Mp3tag since a couple of months and congratulations it's a great software.
I added in view a new column named 'isrc' because I would like to add this code.
I know that discogs has not this info available but musicbrainz has it, not always but more and more.
Now, in support they told me about the src files, but I have no clue how to add some code to try to retrieve isrc codes from the server.
Would it be possible having some tips to how try to get it ?
Thank you in advance

I've added Isrc to this script:

Thank you

Is it possible to get the following tags added if allowed:


Or maybe advise on how to add them myself if nobody has time. I'm just trying to match the tags I get via the foobar MB component.

Hi, would it be possible to add the field original year that it should be %originalyear% ?
Thank you in advance
