Identifying audio CD's
#1
Tongue 
Hello, from what I understood, FreeDB does not work anymore. Whenever I put an audio CD, Kodi attempts to look it up and display a dialog reading : "cddb error 3 open socket".
So I'm wondering if there's another online database for audio CD's? CDDB still exist? Can I change Kodi options to use this other one?
Thanks

Kodi has now switched over to gnudb.gnudb.org as the default for CDDB, you do this yourself by creating an advancedsettings.xml (assuming you don't already have one for something else) see https://kodi.wiki/view/Advancedsettings.xml#cddbaddress

</videoextensions>
<cddbaddress>gnudb.gnudb.org</cddbaddress>
But I still have the same error : (

Did you restart Kodi after making changes to your advancedsettings.xml file ?

Is this what your advancedsettings.xml file looks like? I note you did not show the <advancedsettings> tags.

<advancedsettings version="1.0">
<videoextensions>
<add>.rm|.ex2</add>
</videoextensions>
<cddbaddress>gnudb.gnudb.org</cddbaddress>
</advancedsettings>

In that case, a debug log (wiki) showing Kodi trying to connect obtain info about a CD might shed some light on things.
