#13650 new Bug Report - General

Rip CD screen freezes while freedb.musicbrainz.org requests timeout

Reported by: moodytux Owned by: paul-h

Description

When selecting "Rip CD" in mythmusic with a CD is in the drive, mythmusic scans the CD. When it does so, it makes requests to freedb.musicbrainz.org for every track on the CD. Since this endpoint is no longer working, the request hits the timeout before failing and moving onto the next track. This is repeated for each track resulting in the screen freezing until all requests have finished timing out.

I believe this functionality lives in cddb.cpp

As a proof of concept, I've added the following entry to my /etc/hosts so the requests fail sooner, and found that whilst scanning the CD it only freezes for a couple of seconds:

127.0.0.1 localhost freedb.musicbrainz.org

It seems that the service has closed down based on this article:

Looks like it's actually the freedb gateway component of musicbrainz that no longer responds, but the native musicbrainz api does.
