MusicBrainz Magic Tagger Button is a browser user script that aims to simplify the handling of the green tagger button Open in tagger that is shown on MusicBrainz sites to load a release or recording into Picard.

  • If you load a MusicBrainz release or recording page in your browser while Picard is running, it will automatically activate the tagger integration and enable the green tagger buttons
  • If you click a green tagger button, it will change the button’s icon to indicate whether the release or recording could be sent to Picard or whether there was an error .

This came out of the discussion at Bring me a green tagger button!

This is a user script that you install in your browser using a user script manager such as Greasemonkey, Violentmonkey or Tampermonkey. Please see the Github page for details on how to use this:

Please note:

  • You should use Picard 2.6 Beta 2 or later. For earlier versions of Picard this will not work in most browsers (except for Firefox)
  • You should use a current version of a reasonable modern browser. This has been tested on latest versions of Firefox, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Opera and Vivaldi using Greasemonkey, Violentmonkey and Tampermonkey. Other browsers might not be supported
  • In particular Apple Safari is not supported
  • It is recommended that you use the default configuration for the browser integration in Picard. That means the “Default listening port” in Options > Advanced > Network > Browser integration should be set to 8000. At the very minimum it must be set to a value between 8000 and 8010.

Love the icon changes and the button popping up if you’re running Picard. Well above and beyond!

Icon always comes up as ‘error’ even when successfully sent to Picard, btw:
Picard 2.5.6 (port 8000), Chrome 89.0.4389.82, Windows 10 19041.804

Yes, as I wrote above you need the Picard 2.6 beta release for this to work properly.


Thanks, I thought I had grabbed the latest beta!! Derp :nerd_face:

I have updated the script to fix some issues with import scripts. Basically the Magic Tagger Button script triggered a reload of the add release page, breaking import script such as the Discogs importer.

This has been fixed, the Magic Tagger Button now is excluded from the add release pages.
