Hi,

It is not really a bug report, but an improvement suggestion.

I'm using the debian version packaged to stretch so 2.8.1.
musicbrainz is my datasource.
I ripped (to flac) a compilation with 2 discs one after the other.
musicbrainz is identifying the 2 cds as the same compilation.
Everything has been well ripped but the two cds has been placed in the same repository without any useful informations to identify cd1 from cd2.

I only have a metadata called "TRACKTOTAL=21" or "TRACKTOTAL=19". I can recover cd1 and cd2 but I will need investigation and pain.

Suggestion1: Is it possible to add metadata DISCNUMBER and DISCTOTAL (at least when provided and DISCTOTAL different from 1) ?
I agree when the 2 values are 1, I don't care...

Suggestion2: Is it possible to have discnumber in the produced filename ?
Is it possible (like PADTRACKS=y) to adapt ${TRACKNUM} in order to have a discnumber prefix when disctotal is known and different from 1.

Regards,

Hi,

I will partially answer to myself.
I just discovered the -W option. I believe that it is the right option to use in order to fill my need, but it doesn't really match my need (or expectation).
After checking code, I think there is no simple solution as abcde depends on deprecated WebService::MusicBrainz 0.93 (and musicbrainz api v1).
There is api v2 and WebService::MusicBrainz 1.0.1 (I don't know if it is functional).
I don't have enought knowledge in perl to do/try the upgrade, so I will wait that someone do the job.

Regards,

Hi!

We've now done the mb upgrade if you'd like to try again... :-)

Hi,

mb upgrade looks functional.

Thank you,
