CdGet project is a smart MP3 downloading system using freedb and Direct Connect.

CdGet is a smart downloading system used to retrieve the MP3 files of a CD. It uses freedb and Direct Connect, but is not a traditional Direct Connect client.

Instead, it tries to do the work for you, searching for sources, matching the wanted album, automatically finding the best sources, and probing for new ones if the transfer is too slow or is interrupted.

Finally, it saves the file to the right place, which is configurable, based on the artist, album, title of the song, and track number.

Here are some key features of "CdGet":

Can search for a song or album using the FreeDB database, including millions of albums!
Download using Direct Connect, on the hubs you select.
Automatically moves your downloaded music files to the right place. You can configure where to save the downloaded music files, based on album, artist, title and track number.
Never gives up or gets stuck. CdGet will automatically restart stalled transfers, search for new sources and select what downloads to use based on transfer rates of different sources.
Highly configurable. You can even configure most of the logic in the smart download system.


Qt 3.1.1 or newer
DCTC, the Direct Connect text client
Id3lib is needed for id3 support
