To manage your collection with MusicBrainz, we hope to have a number of tools available in the future which can scan your music directory and submit your collection to MusicBrainz. This page will provide a list of tools which support this.
List of tools
Beets, an open-source command-line music manager, has a MusicBrainz collection plugin that lets you add albums to your collection.
For developers (and adventurous users) there is example code.
- http://svn.musicbrainz.org/miscellaneous/trunk/collection/. - You can use this tool to submit your collection, written in python by kuno.
- http://muz.goatse.co.uk/musicbrainz/collections - This is a Perl script that allows for a user point it to a directory (containing any number of sub folders) that contains MP3s. It will then submit to the XML Web Service based on files found. This was made by Muz. Any issues are best raised with Muzzz on the IRC Channel.
- MusicBrainz::Collection - Another Perl script for uploading collection information. Supports MP3, MP4, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, WMA, WAV, AIFF, Musepack, and Monkey's Audio.
- python-musicbrainz-ngs - Contains Python bindings for the collection API.
If you have questions about working with the Music Collection webservice in general, feel free to ask on the Users Mailing List or Developers Mailing List (whichever seems more appropriate to your question).
