    I mean the title, not the artist of the current track!
    On MusicBrainz each song is listed and associated with an artist and album. "Recording" means a single song of an album ("release"):
    1591548296497.png


    It's just one additional query on the artist MBID search:
    Code:
    http://musicbrainz.org/ws/2/recording/?query=(artistname:"Marina" OR alias:"Marina And The Diamonds") AND recording:"Bubblegum Bitch"
    There are many artists with the same name but it's very unlikely that there are two artists with the same name and a track with the same song name.

    Hence, a two-step artist search would be more precise, but there's no risk for less search results than today. If the song (title) - artist name MBID search didn't return results, the pure artist search will return the same search results as today.

    This makes no sense if the tags are spelled correctly, the result is 99% correct. And I wait when they add the ID from the track to the database. Then, if you correctly register the ID in the track, there will always be an unambiguous result, regardless of the media center (Mediaportal, Kodi, etc).

    With this option, you will have to do a search every time you change the track, and not just when changing the album or artist.

    Yes, but this would be a big change.
    Is it possible to read the current title name during the scrape for artists? E. g.:
    --- NowPlaying --- Scrape for Artist(s): Frank Sinatra Album: My Way: The Best Of Frank Sinatra Year: 1997 Genre: 90s|Swing

    It is possible, but then the image search will be after each change of track. And not like before, after the change of artist or album.

    Hmm, how about Year and Genre changes? Do they also trigger an image search?
