MPFreaker

1.10.1
03 May 2017

Adds relevant info/artwork to MP3 files.

Overview

MPFreaker automatically fills in missing information in your music library. MPFreaker searches the Internet to find out what album that song belongs to, the year that song was released, what genre that album belongs to, track numbers, even album cover artwork and lyrics - and automatically adds this information directly into your song files, in seconds.

By using industry standard methods, you can see and access the new information MPFreaker adds in any audio player which recognizes these standard information "tags", including iTunes and the iPod. Artwork, lyrics and other info added by MPFreaker shows on your iPod and iPhone. (older models may not support artwork or lyrics display)

I have been trying out a bunch of auto tagging tools, and it's been a frustrating experience to say the least. Most of them are massively overpriced, slow with larger libraries, and have a lot of features that don't all necessarily work. MPFreaker has a reasonable price, a good feature set, and an interface that is easy to use. I am mainly using it to add artwork and lyrics. It's not the quickest tool (though quicker than some others I tried) but it seems to be accurate.

Really bad news: It seems MPFreaker isn't behaving as it should with discogs.com and possibly other web services too. I got blocked from discogs.com and after resolving it ( I had to send message trough an anonymizer service) I got this message from Discogs support: "The MPFreaker app is a screen scrapping app (which is a violation of our ToS); it should be using our API for data. I've unblocked the IP, but if you continue to use the app, your IP will be auto-blocked by our system." It does seem likely that the blame lies with Lairware here. Why not use the API when there is one? I seriously doubt MPFreaker without discogs to be of any use to me, but I'll try and use it with Little Snitch blocking it from use with Discogs, which goes against the way it should be.

Reply on LairWare forums from Nov 2013:
'The Discogs.com reply you received isn't quite correct. When support for Discogs.com was added to MPFreaker, it was with their (then-current) JSON API, fully respecting their terms of use and usage limitations. MPFreaker has never "scraped" from Discogs.com.'
No one from discogs.com has ever communicated with anyone at LairWare about this alleged issue.

None of this is of any importance and it's a sad affair it takes you 3 years to respond here.

The bottom line is very simple:

1. I used MPFreaker
2. Discogs banned my IP
3. After much hard work in order to contact them they responded that MPFreaker (of 2013) isn't living up to their standards
4. I use other software that peruses Discogs and I'm not banned

End of story! Nothing else is relevant to this particular problem. Discogs does not need to contact you. It's their service, not yours.

When you have missing tags all the competition is useless. MPFreaker actually works, which cannot be said about the others. MPFreaker is not perfect and for some reason repeating the info gathering brings in new results. Perhaps some services are slower than others, I don't know, but at least 30% are good catches as opposed to totally wrong like Musicbrainz Picard. That you can tell which tags are correct indeed does help and puts the user in the drivers seat, again as opposed to Musicbrainz. MPFreaker does act up and brings very little data from time to time, but that's better than the wrong info. I only wish it would keep at it. The price $10 is certainly justified and if you need real close-to full automatic tagging for incomplete ones there's not much competition at all. I really like it.

I've tried many of these programs and none has worked as well or as easily as MPFreaker. It just gets better with each update. Very fast, easy to use and a bargain at $10. Highly recommended.

I give MPFreaker very high marks. The program just plain works. I have a a large iTunes library ~95K songs and I have tried number of tagging software programs including SongGenie and Tagalicious and found MPFreaker to be the most reliable and easiest to use. It is especially fast if you put your list of tag deficient songs in a playlist and have MPFreaker work on that rather than your entire iTunes library. A+++

Simply the best software for this job. I've tried them all and this is the only one I can say is worth the $20. Highly recommend.

Fantastic software! Is the best to automatically fix ID3 tags, and add artwork to your library. Works relatively fast, too. I have used a couple of programs to add artwork, but this one works well, and I am very satisfied.

As of 1.7.4 MPFreaker does not recognise songs that have their art stored in the iTunes Album Art folder as having art. It only recognises them if they have art in the file. This is of no use for any iTunes 7 users (and lets face it iTunes 7 has been out for a while). The other features work OK but most people will want this to fill in their album artwork and for that reason you don't wanna touch for fear of replacing decent art downloaded from iTunes with inferior versions from the net.

MPFreaker 1.8 copes with the issue of iTunes-downloaded (unembedded) artwork, and now avoids overriding such artwork with new embedded artwork added by MPFreaker.

Corpsecorp: No worries, you can either turn off the feature, or use MPFreaker's handy artwork "Embed" button on any number of songs at a time, even your entire library.

I know this is a far-fetched scenario, but I have 35K+ songs and loading the library takes eons. Not only that, but when the library finally loads and I try to get modificatios for *one* file, it beachballs for 2+ minutes and hangs the living sh*t of iTunes as well. It needs to be modified so it can scale up better. OS 10.5.2 MBP 2 GB RAM
