When falling back to freedb, compilation detection broken

Post by Yonzie » Sun Jan 07, 2007 8:49 pm

I put in a CD that wasn't in Musicbrainz and Max apparently falls back to Freedb (which is awesome, thanks!).
The problem is that Max has stopped detecting compilations when getting data from freedb, meaning I have to separate out the artist and track names manually.
I figure it's a simple if(data==freedb){compilation-detection;}
It's this CD if you want something to look at.

Max doesn't have any FreeDB code in it anymore! I'm not sure how the behavior you observed would have happened. I assume this is with r1132?

Yes. It *clearly* gets data from freedb. Maybe it's Musicbrainz that falls back to freedb?
Strange anyway...

EDIT: After considering for a bit, I guess it must be Musicbrainz doing the tunnelling. They clearly have the capability with their 'FreeDB Imports' so I guess that must be the answer. It's just strange that they don't write anything about it on the site...
