For more information on the musicbrainz webservice see http://wiki.musicbrainz.org/XML_Web_Service.

Usage

# Import the module
import musicbrainzngs

# If you plan to submit data, authenticate
musicbrainzngs.auth("user", "password")

# Tell musicbrainz what your app is, and how to contact you
# (this step is required, as per the webservice access rules
# at http://wiki.musicbrainz.org/XML_Web_Service/Rate_Limiting )
musicbrainzngs.set_useragent("Example music app", "0.1", "http://example.com/music")

# If you are connecting to a different server
musicbrainzngs.set_hostname("beta.musicbrainz.org")
