It is common for concerts to get recorded on video (often unauthorized: bootlegs) and the video to be put up on e.g. YouTube.
Assume for simplicity there is no DVD or anything like that, the uploaded video is the only thing there is. How should such a thing be represented on MusicBrainz?
1a) Stand-alone recording? What about the title of such a recording? Should we apply multi-title-style and list the entire setlist in the title (“Song A / Song B / Song C …”)?
1b) A release with a digital medium with one track?
1c) A release with a digital medium with one track for each song performed?
1d) It should not be added to MusicBrainz?
Next, let’s say someone rips the audio from such a video, quite probably splits it into multiple tracks, and distributes it on file sharing networks, blogs, or such. What should we do with such a thing?
2a) Add a release (bootleg) with a digital medium with one track per file.
2b) It should not be added to MusicBrainz?
Personally I’m leaning to 1a (if only because that seems to be the majority opinion when looking through the forums and it’s good if people do the same), and 2b (if we know the primary source, we do not need to add a simple bootleg rip separately. With sensible exceptions if the rip is somehow very “release-like” (re-edited, remastered, has “bonus tracks”, has artwork…).
But I’m still wondering what would be the best practice for naming a stand-alone recording that is a whole concert.
