It should be easilly possible Thru scripting as MMW now have DiskID in Library and based on http://ftp.freedb.org/pub/freedb/misc/f ... ntries.zip it is well explained.

Personally I had uploaded 700+ CDs onto CDDB and than it started to be paid service :( alo it lacks of Unicode/UTF-8 and Album Art.

I really must echo this request - I would be happy to submit information into freedb to save other people some time. Why would you NOT want to add this to future release?

sending data to freedb

I just had an interesting experience. My daughter and I went to a local pub and a small folk ensemble was playing. They were pretty good. I bought their CD. I took it home and fired up MM and inserted the CD. It came up "unknown" etc. This comes as no surprise - it's a fairly new record by an unknown band, so why would it be in FreeDB, right? I figure, fair enough. and I painstakingly entered all the data for all the songs, where it was recorded, who played what, etc, etc, etc...
Then I figured - heck - I should upload this to FreeDB and do her a favour. Why? Because I'm just that kind of an awesome and kind hearted dude. It's small karma points, but good ones. You know - making the world a better place on FreeDB entry at a time.
Back in the days of iTunes, I could do that, so I figured, this should work, too, even if they use different DBs. Well, lo and behold - I couldn't figure out how to upload the data. I go to FreeDB and ask about "how to upload data to FreeDB". They say "use a FreeDB enabled app - these programs will allow you to do just that!" And they have a list of program that allow you to upload data to FreeDB. Guess which one is NOTICEABLY ABSENT from the list?
Media Monkey. My beloved musical simian app. Waaaah!
This is very disappointing. I think this is an important feature - it helps people feel more involved with their music collection and the artists therein. I would like to know why this lack of ability is so, and if this is tagged as a bug and what's the schedule for its resolution so I don't have to post this once a week like a little crybaby. (Actually, I wouldn't do that, but you know what I mean. This is a pretty essential feature for any music player - Winamp had it, ITunes has it....)
cheers,
HW

Lowlander .. thanks for the link.

You know, it would be nice if MM would just say NO when they aren't going to do something. Putting it in mantis simply gives users the hope that it will be added. Just tell users thanks for the suggestion(s) but we don't really want to do that. After 3 years even good ideas most likely wont get implemented before the current *bling*

I subscribe to this. It's just a civilized thing to do. You retrieve info from FreeDB, but then you also want to be able to contribute back.

This is a long standing wish for MediaMonkey, no word on if/when it might get implemented.
