CDDB.py provides an easy way for Python programs to fetch track and disc information on audio CDs
CDDB.py provides an easy way for Python programs to fetch track and disc information on audio CDs. It includes a C extension module to fetch track lengths under Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Mac OS X, Solaris, and Win32, which is easily ported to other operating systems.
The dynamic duo of CDDB.py and DiscID.py, along with their side-kick C module cdrommodule.so, provide an easy way for Python programs to fetch information on audio CDs from CDDB (http://www.cddb.com/) -- a very large online database of track listings and other information on audio CDs.
Note that for CDDB.py version 1.3 and later, the default CDDB servers have changed to FreeDB, as GraceNote, the owners of the previously-free CDDB archives, have become unreasonably restrictive with access to their database. See http://www.freedb.org/ for more information on FreeDB. UNIX platforms and Windows are both supported by the library.
The old CDDB servers are still usable, but GraceNote has banned all "non-registered" programs -- including CDDB.py -- from accessing their databases. I'm not particularly interested in bending over backwards for them, but CDDB.query() can still access any CDDB host you specify, and from version 1.3 on, also allows you to 'fake' the identification string to anything you wish for accessing their servers.
