What is freedb?


The freedb.org family of free database servers provides CD information via the internet. The common freedb database contains artist, disc title, track titles, and other information for digital audio compact discs. Over time, this archive has grown to contain a substantial collection of CD information (over 700,000 album titles) and continues to grow at a rapid rate.


The VisiTrax CD Player accesses the freedb servers using HTTP (the same text-based protocol used by web browsers) as an outer layer, and within that, the standard "CDDB" (CD database) protocol used by freedb.org.
