Freedb parser

I have been working on a program that will help with mp3 ID3 tags. The idea is that the program will analyze any available data (artist, album, track length, genre, etc) against a huge database of information. From there, you could add data to the mp3 tags based on match results.

Anyway, here’s what I have so far — it’s a ruby program that you execute from a command line. Combined with a freedb database (, this script parses the data into a mySQL database. I work on one genre at a time — there are over 700k records in the rock & misc categories — any more would start to create memory issues.

Send me a email if you are interested in the code.
