freedb

Updated: 04/26/2017 by Computer Hope

A database licensed under the GNU GPL that is used to store audio CD track information. The creation of freedb was sparked after the original CDDB began requiring software programs to have licenses to access its information. Like CDDB, freedb is what allows many computer software programs to recognize a CD and list the CD artist, album, and track information.
