We have tracked the following product recommendations or mentions on Reddit and HackerNews. They can help you see what people think about MusicBrainz Picard and what they use it for.
  • Plex Music library completely failing at finding metadata.
    It's definitely more work, but what many people do is run everything through a tagger like Picard to get all the metadata correct locally, then enable 'Prefer local metadata' in your library settings to ensure Plex follows that. - Source: Reddit / 1 day ago
  • Hi all
    I didn’t mention this because it doesn’t answer your original question but I usually run my audiobooks through MusicBrainz Picard first then put it in a music type library and that works really well. Only thing is it doesn’t quite start/stop where I left off. I think you get the start/stop behavior if you organize them in a book type library, though. - Source: Reddit / 2 days ago
  • I want to click and open one file at a time in a folder in a list style
    Step 1) Download Picard. Step 2) Let it do all that work for you. Step 3) [Optional] Download MP3tag for mass renaming of MP3 files based on meta data. - Source: Reddit / 2 days ago
  • Bach 2000 tagging and directory/file naming conventions
    I run everything through Picard, which in addition to tagging all of my music, can also organize it automatically based on those tags. I use the following script (Options > Options... > File Naming > Edit file naming script...):. - Source: Reddit / 6 days ago

  • Is there a GUI tool to batch-modify FLAC metadata, like ID3 renamer does for mp3?
    MusicBrainz Picard. I've used it to catalog and tag many many many albums. Just drag and drop albums onto the browser, and it looks it up on the very extensive MusicBrainz database. If it's not there you can easily edit or add or delete whatever tag you like. - Source: Reddit / 17 days ago
  • This is a stupid question but, how do I create a album
    This is where you need to tag your music files, e.g. Using MusicBrainz Picard. These tags are 'inside' the music files and Jellyfin reads them when it scans your library. If you have several files with different track numbers and titles but the same album in the tags then theses will show as on the same album in Jellyfin. - Source: Reddit / 17 days ago
  • Music Library encoding multi-disc vinyl record sets.
    Not sure if this is the right answer but I think you use MP3Tag or MusicBrainz Picard to edit the disc metadata in the format you’ve suggested. Either that or follow the instructions under “Discs.”. - Source: Reddit / 17 days ago
  • How to Embed Audiobooks with Multiple MP3/WAV files in Jellyfin?
    If that doesn’t work, I personally have my Audiobooks library as a music type library, with MusicBrainz as my highest priority metadata provider. But even before that…I know these are external services, but I always process all my music and audiobooks through MusicBrainz Picard before importing into Jellyfin. I know that many people also use MP3Tag before importing their music and audiobooks into Jellyfin.... - Source: Reddit / 17 days ago
  • Looking for an mp3 tag editor with mass editing
    I know it isn't Android but MusicBrainz Picard is magical. - Source: Reddit / 19 days ago
  • How do you manage your music library on Synology device?
    Tag files with music brain picard and organize them automatically. - Source: Reddit / 19 days ago
  • Metadata got removed
    No problem. Hmm I’m not really sure what’s happening, sorry. Consider writing or searching for an issue on GitHub. Only thing I can suggest is trying out processing all your music through MusicBrainz Picard before adding it to Jellyfin. I’ve never had any issues with my metadata using this method. Good luck! - Source: Reddit / 23 days ago
  • What is the Best Data Hoarding Software?
    MusicBrainz Picard: Picard is a cross-platform music tagger powered by the MusicBrainz database. - Source: Reddit / 23 days ago
  • Multiple artists for album classification
    I usually use MusicBrainz Picard to clean up all my albums before putting them in my Jellyfin library. It's been a while since I've used it but I believe you can list multiple separate artists for an album. Try doing that then importing it into Jellyfin. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • Strange "artists" showing up in new Music library from \ProgramData...\metadata folder?
    This will be coming from the tags on your audio files. There are two types of tag commonly used ID3 version 1 and ID3 version 2. Some formats such as MP3 can support both simultaneously and some formats such as FLAC support version 2 only. It's possible to have tags both for (track) 'artist' and 'album artist'. You might want to examine the audio file in question with a tag editor such as MusicBrainz Picard.... - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • MY SOLUTION - how to prevent splitting albums by artists problem
    If you aim for "perfect" you'll have to read up on and their software or if you're savvy with the command line you could give a go which also uses the musicbrainz database. - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago

  • Plex question and on the go player
    Before I add music to plex I run it through MusicBrainz Picard and if needed MP3tag. You can use both of these programs to easily edit one or many audio files at a time. - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago
  • After over 15 years of ripping and downloading, my music library just reached 20TB. AMA
    Have you checked if every file is on MusicBrainz by scanning it using Picard? - Source: Reddit / 2 months ago
  • Plex won't add any music files
    For a quick renaming of your music files you could use mp3tag. Or to get all the metadata & rename your files you could use Picard. - Source: Reddit / 2 months ago
  • If You Could Magically Add One Feature/Make One Change to Foobar, It Would Be...
    But honestly, you're better off using Picard as it offers FAR more flexibility and options (especially if the files are drawing weird results for whatever reason). - Source: Reddit / 2 months ago
