discid 0.5.0

Python binding of Libdiscid

Latest Version: 1.1.0

note: This is hopefully the last beta release, but small API changes might occur.

Python-discid implements Python bindings for MusicBrainz Libdiscid. This module works with Python 2 >= 2.6, or Python 3 >= 3.1. Libdiscid >= 0.2.2 is needed.

Libdiscid's main purpose is the calculation of an identifier of audio discs (disc ID) to use for the MusicBrainz database.

That identifier is calculated from the TOC of the disc, similar to the freeDB CDDB identifier. Libdiscid can calculate MusicBrainz disc IDs and freeDB disc IDs. Additionally the MCN of the disc and ISRCs from the tracks can be extracted.

This module is a close binding that offloads all relevant data storage and calculation to Libdiscid. On the other hand it gives a pythonic API and uses objects and exceptions.

For more information on Libdiscid see libdiscid.

For more information about the calculation of these disc ids see Disc ID Calculation.

Usage

# this will load Libdiscid
import discid

disc = discid.read("/dev/cdrom")
print "id: %s" % disc.id  # Python 2
print("id: %s" % disc.id) # Python 3
