CD Info Gateway
freedb.org announced its services would shutdown entirely on 2020-03-31. Many legacy software applications have FreeDB/CDDB support built-in for fetching CD metadata such as artist, title, and track names. To keep these apps functioning in their fully glory, this is meant as a drop-in replacement for FreeDB/CDDB.
This application does not use the original CDDB database, but fetches disc information from MusicBrainz which has an open API and excellent up-to-date disc metadata.

SGI CDplayer, IRIX 6.5.30
The IRIX CDplayer lets you set the CDDB server host and port.
It has the
/~cddb/cddb.cgi path hardcoded in the application.
It does not send the HTTP
host header, so virtual hosts will
not work with this CD player.
This is a CLI app for Linux. It lets you use HTTP, CDDBP, set hosts, ports, paths, everything you need. So it's easy to get going.

Not working. This doesn't seem to ever fetch metadata, even from the live FreeDB servers.
This was the last version to work on Windows 2000.
