Simon Bennett-Smith shared this tip with us for using MusicBrainz with Exact Audio Copy:
I was delighted to recently discover your “MusicBrainz to FreeDB” gateway, as it is exactly what I would have wished for had I thought of it myself! However, following your directions I did encounter a problem in configuring “Exact Audio Copy” to accept the server URL:
I found that EAC will not accept a server that has been typed into the “Freedb server” box – it will only accept one from its own list of available servers, ie. one from the drop-down list.
Fortunately EAC creates this list in the Registry and it is updatable. The mb2freedb URL can be included by adding the Registry Key:
From the next time EAC is started, the mb2freedb URL will be selectable from the drop-down list.
Maybe you could offer a downloadable .reg file containing, simply:
I use EAC v0.95 beta3 and do not know if other versions use the same key, or even exhibit the same behaviour.
Thanks for sharing Simon!
