I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I tag my music with picard so I was expecting it's going to be smooth sailing when using this scraper. But it still won't fetch available info from musicbrainz. Is there some setting i need to change to get it to work? I notice it's mostly the EP's, singles, compilations and remixes that's having this problem. The universal scraper is just wonderful and I know this would be too..as soon I figure out how to use it.

Does the scraper fetches music label company info from musicbrainz, just like allmusic scraper does ? Musicbrainz provides label info on their site.

Hi,

I checked "auto download information when update" in music library settings with default scraper: musicbrainz and artist defaut scraper : universal scraper.

While artist scraper has automaticly downloaded information foe all my music, musicbrainz album scraper didn't..

I have to manually search album information ...

Why ?

Thanks

The scraper is not finding the remixes /compilation albums of various artists such as moby, abba, etc . It is not so bad at finding the main albums though. But do I have to re-tag the albums as per music brainz database? I had previously scrapped with mp3tag and kept the names of the albums as allmusic database

Other than album name, is there any other way of scraping the album

I need specifics.

no, not currently, there are some chances that you will be able to lookup based on MBID as well in Frodo
