Media player with cddb

Hey ppl, does vlc has a cddb? If no, than I need a music player with cddb. Feeling uncomfortable to tag mp3s  manually.  sad

Re: Media player with cddb

While these aren't music players, easytag and puddletag are both popular among users here, and mp3diags has a rather robust tagger; all of these access online databases like CDDB and MusicBrainz.

I'm pretty sure the larger music players like RhythmBox and Banshee have built-in CDDB taggers, but they come with auite a bit of baggage.

I know Gnome-Mplayer and VLC both pull album art from the webz (whether the mp3 already has an image embedded or not), but I haven't looked to see if either has a CDDB-based tag editor.

I found this article on vlc forums, but I cannot find those options in linux vlc  sad

Re: Media player with cddb

If I recall correctly almost all support cddb or freedb. It's best to try and go through them yourself as it's so easy with an apt-get away. My applications of choice for dedicated music players are XMMS and Audacious, but that may be either too old or too minimal for you.

I have audacious, but how do I use cddb feature? I play mp3, but it doesn't fetches any media information..

Re: Media player with cddb

Actually these only work for when playing or ripping from CD. The settings have to be enabled under Preferences>Plugins>Input>Audio CD Support, it's off by default. It seems you want this when playing mp3s, not sure if that exists.

So which program handles tag fetching for mp3?

Re: Media player with cddb

Actually I'm using Clementine as my main player. It's a remake of old Amarok. Like it a lot. It's capable of downloading lyrics and tags for you.
