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 these:

  • Use the PicardTagger to automatically identify and label your digital music collection.
  • Use the ClassicTagger to automatically identify and label your digital music collection.
  • Use the CdLookupTool to update MusicBrainz from your CD collection.

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 XMLWebService or using libmusicbrainz version 3 or greater, available from the libmusicbrainzDownload page.

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.
