Picard Barcode Scanner

Picard Barcode Scanner


Picard Barcode Scanner allows you to load releases into MusicBrainz Picard by using your Android device as a barcode scanner. Just scan the barcode of an album and it will search MusicBrainz for matching releases and loads them into Picard on your desktop computer.

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

Please note: This is not a music file tagger for Android but rather a helper tool for MusicBrainz Picard on your desktop.

Requirements:
* Picard 1.0 or later
* The ZXing barcode scanner available from the Play Store
* Your Android device and the computer running Picard should be both on the same network, and the port 8000 should be accessible

This app is free software published under the GPLv3. The source code is available on GitHub.

Great Idea, But..... I think that it would have been a better idea to work with the developers of the existing MusicBrainz app to incorporate the functionality that is made available here. Just my humble opinion......
