Picard Barcode Scanner

Description

Picard Barcode Scanner helps you to tag your physical releases with MusicBrainz Picard. It allows you to scan the barcode of e.g. a CD and have the corresponding metadata from MusicBrainz automatically loaded into Picard.

This is especially useful if you have your physical music collection already digitalized and want to tag the files using the correct album.

Requirements

Usage

  1. Connect both your computer and your phone to the same WiFi network.
  2. Start MusicBrainz Picard (version 1.0 or higher).
  3. Start Picard Barcode Scanner on your phone.
  4. On the first start the app will ask you for the IP address and port number Picard is listening on. Just enter the IP or network name of your computer. For the port the default 8000 should normaly be ok. In case you have multiple instances of Picard running on your computer it might be 8001 or higher.
  5. Use the app to scan the barcode of a music album. If the album is in the MusicBrainz database and your Picard connection settings are correct the album data will automatically be loaded into Picard.
  6. Tag your files in Picard.
