As stated previously, the problem is on freedb's side and there's nothing MB can do about it. You need to select a different source.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

----------
Check out the MusicBee Wiki.
How to post screenshots is here.

i've searched far and wide the internet and found no post discussing this issue, you would not mind if bring it up do you. it's weird though that there is no news by the official team eaither.

I've just found out that freedb is working inside TagScanner (https://www.xdlab.ru/en/). That application is awesome by the way, I will side it with MB so I can totally avoid Picard.

Seems to be a new addition, I'm pretty sure it wasn't there when this conversation started.

Even if FreeDB.org state itself to be down, Foobar can search and find results with these values:

server: freedb.freedb.org
port: 80
address: /~cddb/cddb.cgi


However MB doesn't perform any search with freedb.freedb.org

Is there a way these values can help to reach from MB?

Thank you!
