Wine Application DB - Viewing App - MusicBrainz Tagger (324 words)
MusicBrainz is a community music metadatabase that attempts to create a comprehensive music information site.
This IE installation provides the functional mshtml.dll which is REQUIRED to utilize the bottom pane of MusicBrainz (used for selecting between different versions of a song, or for searching the database).
With IE installed, all functionality is working perfectly: The tagger analyzes music files, generates their TRM IDs, compares this with information on the MusicBrainz server, and saves the corrected or discovered tags just as it does under windows.
