    Default Need Port Number to get Track Titles on CD Ripper

    So the track titles for Asunder CD ripper came from freedb.org. I wondered why my CDs were no longer getting titles and found out that freedb.org no longer exists. I have the link to pull titles from https://musicbrainz.org/ but cant get them unless i have a port number so my computer can enter the site and get the titles. Does anybody know what the port number is at musicbrainz.org?

    Alternately do you have a different track title source with port number that I can use.

    Here is what I have to fill in:

    I go to Assunder's site and they do not give an alternate music title source.

    Does this help?

    By the way, it looks like the Port is 8000.

    Well port 8000 dd not work on my asunder ripper, but I will have to explore the web link you provided.

    There apparently is a way to search for these ports in terminal mode on Linux. I found the search parameters but it did not work. I am not really comfortable with terminal mode. Maybe my son can try it next time he is over.

    Incidentally, I downloaded a streamlined version of SoundJuicer ripper and it brings in the track titles, but won't write the music to a folder for some reason. Says it does, and I set it to put the folder on the desktop, but no folder.

    The web page apparently lists all of the MusicBrainz-enabled applications. Asunder is not one of them, but there are a couple of Linux rippers included. Including SoundJuicer if you can get it to work.

    While you can check for open ports using tools such as 'nmap', the results aren't guaranteed as there are ways to block those types of searches. Even if you do find an open port, that doesn't mean that your software will know the correct communication protocol.

    Hmmm, wonder why the developers of Asunder haven't updated that feature. It seems to have been gone for a couple months or so now. Of course I should not complain about stuff that is free.

    I believe FreeDb is no more, essentially "dead".

    Yep, that is the case according to many comments found in web searches.

    You can still download the FreeDB database, would Asunder be able to use this? Many years ago when I was without internet access I used it this way.

    Is this of any use: https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/t...ur-own-mirror/

    Try 80 and 443, as first attempts.

    I know you want to get stuff from MusicBrainz, but the replacement for freedb is http://gnudb.gnudb.org/, port 8880 (and plain 80 for ordinary html).

    I will use music brains, gnudp, or any program if it works. None of these worked. Tried two different disks. Thanks for looking into it. I am getting better at manually entering track info though.

    Well, I didn't like to mention anything, but it is a personal bug-bear so, since you bring it up: there isn't an online source that gets this stuff right! I therefore always rip minimally and tag up afterwards, by hand, and have done so since 2001.

    Shameless plug for CCDR (ripper) and CCDT (tagger) wot I wrote myself (though they're only shell-scripts). I wouldn't have mentioned either if you hadn't mentioned being on Linux... but since you're clearly technically give-it-a-go, it seemed appropriate.

    Also, a walk-through, in case you were prepared to give it a go and not have a clue where to start!

    Fre:ac and Puddletag shop over here!

    I like Puddletag. It does a much better job than Easytag (which has a nasty habit of renaming COMMENT tags to DESCRIPTION tags without telling you!)

    I mean, if GUI is your thing, no problems this end at all. What I found, after years of battling, is that tagging is an essentially text-based process. It doesn't need a GUI. Oh, and for Fre:ac, use auac. [Also GUI-free]

    Boringly Manjaro KDE Plasma here.
