User Submitted Mirror – musicbrainz.dofl.nl:81

MusicbrainzlogoA website visitor, Dominique, has setup their own musicbrainz mirror and offered to make it public.

It can be reached at http://musicbrainz.dofl.nl. Use port 81 for the actual musicbrainz server.

Thanks, Dominique!  If anyone else wants to submit a mirror, I’d be happy to share it here.  In the mean time, cloudatcost is still down and my mirror is still unavailable.

  1. I’m having trouble using custom musicbrainz servers in Headphones. If I just use the default musicbrainz.org server, it works sometimes. But if I select “custom” and put the above URL in the “host” field and “81” in the port number field, leaving the third option “sleep interval” set to the default “1” I get no results when I perform any searches. My log will show something like “Attempt to query MusicBrainz for ABBA failed (caused by: )” when I perform searches. I also tried putting http://musicbrainz.dofl.nl:81/ in the “host” field but that didn’t help. I must be doing something wrong here, since I can access the website through a web browser. I know this isn’t a help forum, but anyone have a suggestion?

  2. Hi Johnna,

    It should work just fine with Headphones. I’m using the latest version without any errors and pretty fast. I’ve made a screenshot of the settings i’m using in Headhones: http://postimg.org/image/kt5qm3e5r/

    Could you restart headphones, make sure it’s up to date and let my know any detailed log information?

  3. OK this is strange… I put in the information again, as you had it, and now it is working. I was sure I had put it in that exact way myself, especially as I simply copied and pasted the info rather than retyping. The only thing I can think of is that I probably had the http:// in there before the “MUSICBRAINZ.DOFL.NL” part and maybe headphones didn’t like that. This is not the only custom server I had trouble with; I was getting the same error with others including tranquilbase when I *thought* it was up.

  4. you’re welcome. If you have problems with the musicbrainz mirror on musicbrainz.fin-alice.de:5000 let me know, I’ll try to fix it as soon as possible. In august, I updated the musicbrainz mirror to the current version 2016-08-beta. So some erros were fixed.
