ADVANCED USAGE

Sometimes other taggers like MP3Tag and Musicbrainz Picard fill tags with non-standard fields. Some of the these fields include Catalog numbers or unique identifiers for databases like discogs or Musicbrainz. Far more accurate queries can be attained by using these tags together with Musicbee's custom tag feature. The following formulas can be entered as a web-link in MusicBee. Essentially, they instruct Musicbee to use the unique tags first or, if they are not found, to use more standard tags.

DISCOGS

Custom tag field (from MP3tag's discogs.src)*: DISCOGS_RELEASE_ID

<Album> search formula:
$IsNull(<DISCOGS_RELEASE_ID>,https://www.discogs.com/search/?q=<Album>&btn=&type=release,https://www.discogs.com/release/<DISCOGS_RELEASE_ID>)

MUSICBRAINZ

Musicbrainz Picard's tag documentation: https://picard.musicbrainz.org/docs/tags/

Custom tag field: MUSICBRAINZ_ALBUMID

<Artist> search formula:
$IsNull(<MUSICBRAINZ_ALBUMID>,http://musicbrainz.org/search/textsearch.html?query=<Artist>&type=artist&an=1&as=1,http://musicbrainz.org/release/<MUSICBRAINZ_ALBUMID>)
<Album> search formula:
$IsNull(<MUSICBRAINZ_ALBUMID>,http://musicbrainz.org/search/textsearch.html?type=release&query=<Album>,http://musicbrainz.org/release/<MUSICBRAINZ_ALBUMID>)

VIDEOGAME MUSIC DATABASE (VGMdb)

Custom tag field: catalognumber (Musicbrainz Picard); catalogno (MP3Tag's discog script)*

<Album> search formula:

$IsNull(<catalognumber>,http://vgmdb.net/search?q=<Album>,http://vgmdb.net/search?q=<catalognumber>)

*Note: MP3Tag's discog script (SRC file) can be edited to conform to other taggers like Musicbrainz Picard. Discog.src is typically located at C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\Mp3tag\data\sources. Open discog.src with your favorite text editor, search and change the "outputto" value to one that conforms to other taggers.

For example (to match Musicbrainz Picard's tags):

  1. Catalog Number
    outputto "CATALOGNO"
    json_select_many "labels" "catno" ", "
    sayrest

to

  1. Catalog Number
    outputto "CATALOGNUMBER"
    json_select_many "labels" "catno" ", "
    sayrest
