Checks iTunes song info with the MusicBrainz database.

Overview

iEatBrainz... This program takes songs that you\'ve chosen in your iTunes Library, that have incorrect or missing information for Title, Artist or Album , and then uses the sound of each song to match it with the correct information maintained in the MusicBrainz Database (musicbrainz.org). This processing typically takes several seconds per song, and then it allows you to verify before updating your iTunes Library.

DMG mounts but program can't launch. I'm hoping this is some small problem the developer forgot to fix before distribution, which is potentially a really bad sign for a program that will rename files on your drive... lots of them! Will give this program another chance once it's released again though as this would clean up about 1/5 of my music files(42GB) that i have untagged or incorrectly tagged. What a great idea, keep developing it.

I am not dead, I did not die a few years ago, i graduated from college a few years ago, thus lost my copious free time, iEatBrainz was always on my back burner. And while the trunk of public repository did compile as a universal binary, I never released it, because it didn't really matter as MusicBrainz is going to shut down the TRM server in the near future (as in Feb 2008 last announced). I don't have time or interest to port iEatBrainz to MusicIP, but I do have interest is other people doing it, or helping work on other parts of iEatBrainz if there is some other developer interested in doing the port. So beware it may stop working in the near future.

Note that macupdate points to 6v8.gamboni.org where I provide a universal build of iEatBrainz. However I am not taking over the development of this project and won't have time to offer support. I didn't even know Jay Tuley had passed away. I just took the sources freely available from the SourceForge project and tweaked the XCode project to get it to build for me and thought it would be nice for others to distribute it. Sadly, it's not that I won't like to, but I have no knowledge or time to look into how all this was coded by Jay Tuley.

Jay Tuley past away a couple of years ago. Hence no new development.

Is this project dead? Either way, what is a good alternative?

Seems to have some snags under Leopard 10.5.1 I know some other taggers making use of MusicBrainz are appearing, but i liked this one. Universal Leopard compatible build anyone? .

For anyone interested, I provide a universal build that works fine on 10.4 Intel here: http://6v8.gamboni.org/IEatBrainz-Universal-Build.html

Could someone please compile a universal binary with the given source. I tried but failed because I'm not much into XCode. Thanks.

_ Still works well for me (G4, 10.4.8) but is bound to break sooner or later! Where are some brave (knowledgeable) heroes to take up the task of giving Mac users a MusicBrainz tagger now that development has halted?!

This is one of the most useful little apps out there! I found this when using AudioScrobbler, as they say to 'Check your tags!!'. It's not always right, but it's better than typing in dozens of song names and artists!

I'm running: Tiger 10.4.7 iTunes 6.0.5 iEatBrainz 1.07 The software doesn't work... no errors are generated... it just doesn't do anything. I select a few songs from my iTunes library and the "working" icon spins in the bottom right corner of the window... as though it's doing something... but nothin happens. I downloaded the source and recompiled it on my computer.. to no avail.

I would really like to see this rebuilt as a intel compatible binary. Rosetta is working awfully hard to keep up with all the stuff this program does, and its killer on all my systems. WARNING: Don't try to use more than 500 or so songs in your working list at once, you will pay for it in huge slowdowns. Keep the working list small and this program will run at least something close to acceptable speeds.
