Products > libmusicbrainz

The libmusicbrainz (also known as mb_client or MusicBrainz Client Library) is a development library geared towards developers who wish to add MusicBrainz lookup capabilities to their applications. If you are looking for a complete, usable program to run, please try out Picard.

libmusicbrainz version 2.x and below have been deprecated since they use the old RDF based Web Service. All new development should happen with the new XML Web Service or using libmusicbrainz version 3 or greater.

The libmusicbrainz is officially supported in 32 bit Windows (95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP), Linux and Mac OS X, with packages released for the RedHat and debian distributions. For more details on how to use this library, please take a look at the ClientHOWTO.

Download

As of version 3.x, the client library has used the XML Web Service, and thus, is not compatible with version 2.x. There is a different API involved.
