    That´s correct - I do have the info automatically grabbed - they are shown in NowPlaying (at least in my skins) ;)
    And I totally forgot that the grabbing via context menu is MP core function - sorry to bother you with that issue ;)

    This can't be matched automatically with the current logic.
    If you go to theaudiodb.com and search for Iron Maiden you get two bands.
    This code can not currently deal with multiple matches as it does not know which one to pick.

    If you have albumifo then this must have been grabbed previously

    It would be nice if when you encounter multiple artist matches it grabs the album name then checks which of the muti match artists have that album. if there is still more than one match it ?picks the most popular one?

    Well if this is a wishing well I'd like to drop this in:

    https://acoustid.org/login?return_url=http://acoustid.org/api-key

    Open Source Acoustic ID fingerprinting to identify audio tracks :)

    Show Spoiler


    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is the purpose of this project?

    There are several companies that provide audio identification services. Unfortunately, so far there was none of them published the fingerprint database and/or the source code for the server architecture. This project started as an experiment to implement a large-scale and fully open source audio fingerprinting solution, that can be used by other open source software without depending on proprietary software. The primary focus is on integration with the MusicBrainz music metadata database. There is a long way to go to reach the goal, but you can help by submitting more fingerprints, helping developing the software or just spreading the word.
    Can the service identify short audio snippets?

    No, it can't. The service has been designed for identifying full audio files. We would like to eventually support also this use case, but it's not a priority at the moment. Note that even when this will be implemented, it will be still intended for matching the original audio (e.g. for the purpose of tracklisting a long audio stream), not audio with background noise recorded on a phone.
    Why do I need to log in to submit fingerprints?

    We want to be able to track fingerprint submission for statistical and data quality reasons. If every user has an unique API key, we can generate list of top contributors and similar statistics. Additionally, if we need to do some data cleanup, it's much easier to do if we know the source of the data. You can use any OpenID provider to log in or you can use your existing MusicBrainz user account.
