Is there a dll or is there one that can be easily made
to be able to access the CDDB for audio CD's?

Thanks

Too bad, I guess CDDB has died since recently. Sad

Seems like many software using CDDB, including VDS made ones, will no longer function
now. There will be an error "433 Authorized client". Although I haven't read into this
yet, I'll assume that CDDB's current owner requires payment for use of the database.

Please don't bother using CDDB anymore, I'm sure most VDS apps wouldn't get
approved by the company owning it, and most of their conditions are totally
unacceptable.

For now the best alternative seems to be freedb: http://www.freedb.org/
Switching to this one is very easy as it supports the CDDB 1 protocol besides the
freedb protocol. Just use the server freedb.freedb.org instead of *.cddb.com.

If you want to see freedb in action you can try the following ancient, slightly modified
script:

It also requires vdsinet.dll, if you don't have it yet here's a quick download link:

This is a great example Tommy. Very Happy Very Happy

The CDDB code in the open source section I posted a while back was using a freedb server. I will add the link to this thread.

Oh, sorry, I didn't notice you were using freedb already. Wink

Also about my code, I think it's probably the same really as your code. My code is very
old and probably contains some bugs.
