The MusicBrainz Client Library (libmusicbrainz), also known as mb_client, is a development library geared towards developers who wish to add MusicBrainz lookup capabilities to their applications. The library supports Windows, Linux and Mac OS X, with packages released for the RedHat and Debian distributions.

Version 4.x and greater supports the latest version of the MusicBrainz web service and are not backwards compatible with earlier versions. As of 2011, version 3.x and below have been deprecated.

Version 5.x has been introduced to enable easier inclusion into Debian due to a conflicting package name. There are no changes between 5.0.0 and 4.0.2, with the exception of a new include directory name, and the removal of deprecated functions. However, all future work is likely to be carried out on version 5.x.

If you are looking for a complete, usable program to run, please try out Picard.

Documentation

For details on how to use this library, please take a look at the API documentation.
