Hi folks, I’m new and I’m sorry the first thing I do is requesting a feature, whose absence I consider a bug in fact:
In my opinion, it would be a HUGE advantage if one could add DiscIDs in the web interface.
Why? Here’s my story: I found my tagging/ripping program doesn’t find an album on MusicBrainz because there was only a ”Digital Media“ release in the db, no CD release with DiscIDs. So I created an account and tried to duplicate the release and add the DiscID my tagger (cdda2wav/abcde) generated. Only then I noticed that I cannot do this in the web interface and would have to install special software to do this. I’m sorry, but this is a show-stopper for me. I have an established workflow for ripping and tagging CDs and I probably won’t change it or search for a program which can somehow fit into it. It is no option to let e.g. picard extract the DiscID from the CD, because I rip CDs into a file first and add the tags later, to streamline multi-cd rips.
To me as a noob, it is really counterintuitive that I cannot add the DiscID in the web interface, and I won’t probably install and use special software for this purpose. If the web interface allowed me to do so, I would. If you want new people to participate, please make it easy.
