Hi,

Please check out http://musicbrainz.org and see if this could be integrated into Music Lobby. I believe it to be worth your while to investigate it. The idea is to be able to generate playlists based on more advanced criteria than simply Artist > Title and the like.

Thanks

I read through the site... and don't get a picture of what one might desire to search through the advanced tags. Can you give some examples?

If I'm understanding their purpose, it is to be a free alternative to CDDB (which used to be free, of course :roll:). FreeDB is the other "alternative to CDDB" as mentioned in the History of MusicBrainz. This is the database that JRMC uses and that CDJ can be reconfigured to use.

I suspect that currently, the JRMC site would be the place to request this WRT it interacting with Music Lobby.

MusicBrainz looks like it will be charging for their information eventually:

As to the ability to "generate playlists based on more advanced criteria than simply Artist > Title and the like", JRMC has MUCH more capability than anything you've seen in WinAmp or the like, if that's what you're thinking. I think JRMC's search / playlist / smartlist ability is one of its greatest strength (it's not the stability :roll:).

:D
