GnuDB is a service that was set up prior to the closure of freedb used for hosting CDDB data that uses the CDDB1 format.

With the formal closure of freedb in 2019, a number of applications now use GnuDB as their freedb replacement.

Applications[edit]

The following applications are GnuDB-aware:

Configuration[edit]

In general, applications only need to have freedb.freedb.org changed to gnudb.gnudb.org.

Should an application not support HTTP 1.1, the following proxy settings can be used:

  • Proxy server: proxy.gnudb.org
  • Port: 3128

An alternate solution for some Windows users may be to update their "hosts" file with the following:

92.246.24.225 freedb.freedb.org
