Video/YouTube tutorial requests

Kia ora! I have started creating a set of informal videos that answer very basic questions about MusicBrainz and MusicBrainz Picard (and could be expanded to cover anything MeB if wanted). They are anywhere from two minutes to 15 depending on the subject.

No script, no professionalism, just busting them out :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
A bit of editing required and then I’ll start putting them up.

Any requests for common questions that I’ve missed?

“D:\MusicBrainz create account.mp4”
“D:\MusicBrainz create artist.mp4”
“D:\MusicBrainz how to contribute (reports).mp4”
“D:\MusicBrainz how to install a userscript manager.mp4”
“D:\MusicBrainz how to merge an artist.mp4”
“D:\MusicBrainz how to merge releases.mp4”
“D:\MusicBrainz how to quickly add cover art.mp4”
“D:\MusicBrainz how to quickly import from Bandcamp.mp4”
“D:\MusicBrainz how to quickly import from Discogs.mp4”
“D:\MusicBrainz how to quickly import from Spotify-Apple-Deezer.mp4”
“D:\MusicBrainz how to remove information.mp4”
“D:\MusicBrainz my edit-change isn’t happening.mp4”
“D:\MusicBrainz submit acoustID.mp4”
“D:\MusicBrainz add album art.mp4”
“D:\MusicBrainz add band members.mp4”
“D:\MusicBrainz add genres and tags.mp4”
“D:\MusicBrainz add release.mp4”
“D:\MusicBrainz-Picard how to add a DiscID.mp4”
“D:\Picard what is MusicBrainz Picard.mp4”

On the to do list:
Picard how to organise folders and files
Picard how to organise classical music
Picard how to automatically organise a large collection
Picard tagging for dummies
Picard how to customize tags/scripting
Picard how to customize folder structure/scripting
How to submit a release to MusicBrainz using Picard
Picard messed up my music library, why?
Picard how to add cover art to my music
Whatever else comes to mind as I go
Maybe some ListenBrainz stuff


I think a “What is MusicBrainz” video might be good to add as well, maybe also briefly going over all the entity types to show a bit of the scope of the project?

an introduction to Series might be in order too, as those can be a bit complex and/or underutilized


How do I properly handle renaming artists/artist name changes(especially without messing everything up)? Or adding new artists who have gone through name changes. Rebranding is quite common in KPop so it something that would be very helpful to know.

An example would be

originally debuted as Gate9 on October 26, 2017 … On January 31, 2019, NOS Entertainment (now known as GF Entertainment) made a Makestar project titled “GeeGu Comeback Support Project”, officially confirming that the group rebranded and member Kady’s departure from the group.

In case you need an artist to use to make the video with, there you go :smiley:
