Summary0016715: Freedb lookup no longer works
DescriptionWhile audio CD lookups works fine in MM5 (as MusicBrainz has been added in course of 0016243) it fails in MM4 now (as has been already shut down).

So we can either:

1) port MusicBrainz lookups from MM5 to MM 4.1.29 (problematic due to involved localization / string changes)
2) Add [Help] button to the current "There was an error while connecting to Freedb: Cannot create connetion." message with the [Help] button referring to KB article recommending to upgrade to MM5 (similarly like we do for deprecated Auto-tag from Amazon)
3) Find or utilize alternate freedb server to be used in MM4
TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build1908

FYI: I ported MusicBrainz lookup code from MM5 to MM4.

The only UI changes are the configs in Options:
Protocol: [MusicBrainz, Freedb (CDDBP), Freedb (HTTP)]
Server name: []
