Bizarre ISRC Format

Just being doing some music video work, and sometimes people upload the music videos with the lead ins still present; like this

Now it only appears for about a second, but usually contains helpful information such as director and date.

However looking at that title card, what the heck is that ISRC format!



It looks like a game or corrupt ISRC.
The normal format is:



  • CC: country code
  • LLL: label code
  • YY: year
  • RRRRR: the recording code, itself

Could be GB-506-06-02002 and bogus 54??

“506” is supposed to be “F”, according to ISRC Search. So GB-F06-02-00254.


Another search site disagrees - GB-F08 something

I’ve seen something similar on some Taiwanese releases. The ISRCs for the tracks on the album are listed in the booklet, but when I tried to add them to the release in MB the system flagged them as invalid.

That website’s only for audio, not video. Although you’ve reminded me of the existence of the similarly-titled for video, which also says GBF060200254.

Sorry about that… anyway good that you got a consistent answer from the video search site!
