       isrcsubmit [options] [user] [device]


       isrcsubmit  extracts  International  Standard  Recording  Codes  (ISRC) from audio CDs and
       allows one to submit the data to MusicBrainz. ISRCs are used to uniquely  identifiy  sound
       and music video recordings.

       -h     Short usage help.

       --help Complete help for the program.

       -u <username>, --user=<username>
              MusicBrainz username, if not given as argument.

       -d <device>, --device=<device>
              CD  device  with  a  loaded  audio  CD,  if  not  given as argument. The default is

              Optional MusicBrainz ID of the release. This will be gathered if not given.

       -b <program>, --backend=<program>
              Force using a specific backend to extract ISRCs from the  disc.  Possible  backends
              are:  mediatools,  media_info,  cdrdao, libdiscid, discisrc. They are tried in this
              order otherwise. See also BACKENDS.

       isrcsubmit  is able to use various backends to extract the ISRC.  The libdiscid library is
       a requirement for isrcsubmit and can also be used as a backend on most systems.

       ISRCs are nearly always stored in the subchannel information and all tools read them  from
       there.   However,  some  drives  tend  to  extract  the  same  ISRC  for  adjacent tracks.
       Restarting the script might help and using a different drive might help.  CD  writers  are
       reported to give better results than many CD reader drives.

       mediatools, media_info
              These  tools  use  an  experimental  algorithm to gather ISRCs from the disc.  This
              should give less duplicates on the same drive  than  with  other  tools.   However,
              there might be other problems. (only available for Windows)

       cdrdao This  tool  can  read  ISRCs  from  CD-Text  if  no  ISRCs  are  in  the subchannel
              information.  This is rarely the case. Most ISRCs are  stored  in  the  subchannel.
              (usually available on Linux, but there are also Windows builds (plank))

              Starting  with  libdiscid 0.3.0 this can be used not only for the disc ID, but also
              to extract ISRCs.  (Windows, Mac; Linux support with 0.3.1)

              The discisrc binary is created from  source  builds  of  libdiscid.   There  is  an
              experimental  branch  isrc_raw  that  might give better results regarding duplicate
              ISRCs on  Linux.   You  can  use  this  binary  separately  without  installing  an
              experimental libdiscid library on the system.
