CDDBs

Recommended Posts

Not so much a question as a complaint. I am ripping CDs of vintage classical recordings, and find time after time that neither FreeDB nor MusicBrainz has many of them in their database. Admittedly many of these are esoteric, but by no means rare, CDs. The kicker is that I can pop these into my WinAmp (free version) and Gracenote finds practically all of them. So, the question is obvious: If WinAmp can include Gracenote, why on earth can't NCH?

 

If anyone knows a work-around, I'd be pleased if they would share it.

Gracenote is probably the best database available but it has license costs associated with it, which is why we don't use it

I can understand that reasoning for your 'Free' version, but not for the 'Paid For' version. If other companies who are charging nothing for their software can use Gracenote, why can't you, who ARE charging ? Especially when you admit that it's the best Database.
