MusicBrainz Collection Plugin

The mbcollection plugin lets you submit your catalog to MusicBrainz to maintain your music collection list there.

To begin, just enable the mbcollection plugin (see Plugins). Then, add your MusicBrainz username and password to your configuration file under a musicbrainz section:

    user: you
    pass: seekrit

Then, use the beet mbupdate command to send your albums to MusicBrainz. The command automatically adds all of your albums to the first collection it finds. If you don’t have a MusicBrainz collection yet, you may need to add one to your profile first.

Automatically Update on Import

You can also configure the plugin to automatically amend your MusicBrainz collection whenever you import a new album. To do this, first enable the plugin and add your MusicBrainz account as above. Then, add mbcollection section and enable the enable auto flag therein:

    auto: yes

During future imports, your default collection will be updated with each imported album.
