Most of the solutions given here that recommend EAC or MP3Tag dont seem to care for the fact those just dont cut it for individual tracks, theyre just good for a full album that youre ripping most of the time. It should go without mentioning that the Autotag feature was pretty much just for that whole purpose.

In addition, even if you do have the full album but you have no idea what the songs are called (due to them having obscure names like Track 01, unknown track, etc..) Those programs just dont cut it because they cant recognize songs. Only Gracenote and Musicbrainz can do that, and theyre total lifesavers at it. (and no, MP3Tag's Musicbrainz online source integration doesnt have any detection abilities like the official Musicbrainz client has)


Ive come to realise DrO is Einstein incarnate, because while the expected alternative would have been to use FreeDB like almost every other non Gracenote powered music player uses, he chose the not as well known Musicbrainz that has the AcoustID feature thats the same, and at times even better than Gracenote's TrackID technology. Winamp is truly in safe hands with him presiding its development lol.

While a royal pain to use for multiple tracks, Musicbrainz's official client "Picard" has become my new tagger of choice (in addition to TuneUp for those times Musicbrainz doesnt get it), for CD's its also great, its not just limited to individual tracks.

*If you have issues with Winamp, ensure you have the currently latest version Winamp v5.666 build 3516 & its patches that fix several issues
*To remove the currently dead Winamp online stuff, see here: removing online stuff
*If you miss the Autotag feature: Gracenote CDDB Autotag alternatives
