Winamp/Allmusic.com Partnership?

Teaming up with allmusic.com would add alot to the Media Library features (album info etc).

What do you reakon?

i reckon that the library probably already does this, and its just rebranded.

you're just confusing FreeDB and CDDB (which is Gracenote).

The info is Gracenote's not Allmusic's (they're seperate and have seperate databases).

For long you live and high you fly, but only if you ride the tide, and balanced on the biggest wave you race towards an early grave.

Yea by far, thats why i want to see something happen between winamp and allmusic.

I think how the allmusic.com site is set out now wont make it easy for a winamp->allmusic link, it would be a massive undertaking and overhauling.
