Hi there,
At the moment the 1.4.2 release of MusicBrainz Picard version and I would like to use the moodbar plugin.
I found a settings tab for it in the options section but can’t seem to find any info for this plugin on the web.
In fact this seems common for plugins…where can one find info regarding the use and install of the plugins in general.

kind regards
Guy

Moodbards is something that requires an external program to work and having the plugin will run the program.
This generates a hidden .mood file that some linux music players can sue to create a coloured pattern based off the audio.
See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moodbar for an example screenshot of what it looks like.

The original program does not seem to exist in ubuntu but there are some other implementations on github or you can install an old package from debian.
