Products > libdiscid
libdiscid is a C library for creating MusicBrainz and freedb disc IDs from audio CDs. It reads a CD's table of contents (TOC) and generates an identifier which can be used to lookup the CD at MusicBrainz. Additionally, it provides a submission URL for adding the disc ID to the database and gathers ISRCs and the MCN (=UPC/EAN) from disc.
The interface of this library is new, but the disc ID algorithm and the operating system dependent CD-ROM/DVD-ROM access code have been ported from libmusicbrainz version 2.
libdiscid is licensed under the GNU Lesser General Public License 2.1 or later.
