Hi,

I was wondering if FMOD Ex provides a way to get the track title and artist name, etc for a cd track. Or if that information is even encoded on a cd. If so, could someone point me in the right direction for extracting that information from a cd track?

Normally this info is not included on CD’s except for CD’s with CD-Text written on it. I am not sure if FMOD supports this.
Or do you mean get the CD-ID (forgot the official name for this) and then look that up in either cddb or freedb, like WinAmp and others do.

Oh, I see. Thank you very much. That is exactly what I was asking. If they had embedded information about the songs. I won’t be able to connect to any kind of remote database however, so I guess I’ll just have to be content with the track number.
Once again, thanks for your help.

You’re welcome. You could hope on CD-Text, if it is embedded on the CD but that is not always the case, and I am not sure if FMOD reads this info.

Actually, cdtext support is on our todo list but it’s a very low priority item at the moment.

I think freedb/cddb are more valuable compared to CD-Text.
Nice to see you have freedb/cddb on your todo list.
