CDpedia

6.026 June 2019

CD management system with iTunes-like interface.

Overview

CDpedia is a music cataloging software. To save you time and effort it retrieves album information from the Internet, either by entering keywords or using a webcam or a scanner. Create smart collections and start a wish list and a borrowed list so you never loose a CD again. View your entries as a standard list, browse only the covers in grid view or Cover Flow or use the details view for a personalized look of CDpedia. Share your collection with friends, using the customizable HTML export templates. CDpedia integrates with iTunes to let you know what CDs in your collection have already been imported.

What about a single "pedia" for all my media stuff? One application for every different kind is somehow annoying. Come on, four apps which do nearly the same, that's a laugh.

Purchased this program from the Itunes Store and it worked great. Then a couple of days later I turned it on to add more CD's and every single album cover had disappeared. from my Library. I still have much of the information but only in the Library section that is listed not the one I added as my specific Library. Can anyone help me understand what I need to do to have the list reappear without having to completely re enter my CD's.

I downloaded and installed this application and I have a lot to say.The first thing it did is ask me if I would like to download my "Delicious Library" of tracks. I didn't know I even had such a library.I agreed to download it,and nothing happened at all. I waited for about 20 minutes and nothing happened.I then wanted to download my Music Library in iTunes or my FLAC library which is in ~/libray.I don't know why others it didn't. I gave up in disgust. I give it one star and don't know why other users are so enthusiastic about it.

The Edit got to me. What I tried to convey is that absolutely nothing happened. No scanning of my drive Nothing!

Sorry to hear the installation experience was not what it should have been. The Delicious Library import option comes up when the program sees a Delicious Library database on your drive. Since nothing was imported it could simply be that there were no entries and you only ran the program to test it once. We should probably check for entries before showing the dialog.

We have heard no issue of using either the Import Playlist from iTunes that should have let you select you iTunes library or any other playlist for import into CDpedia. If that failed do email us more information to our support email, especially any errors from the console log and we can quickly get to the bottom of the issue.

Similar for your FLAC files. Importing a folder would have had CDpedia scanning the folders for music files and importing any possible metadata information. Currently CDpedia does not have native support for FLAC metadata so it relies on Quicktime for the metadata, anything that iTunes would be able to see CDpedia would be able to import. I shall run some test with a few FLAC files to make sure that they are working as this has not come up before.

Excellent app. Very intuitive and it just works ! Fast learning curve and not packed with a ton of unuseful features like some other simulair programs. Worth the money!

This app looks sweet! I would love it if the dev made a version for vinyl record collectors too. I would buy it in a heartbeat ( as would thousands of other album lovers) because there isn't an app, to my knowledge, that addresses this community. Even knowing that I'd probably have to manually enter info for my older lps, it would still be worth it to have a program that helps me keep them cataloged and organized.

Have you tried 'Discogs' the online vinyl catalogue (http://www.discogs.com)? This is by far the most comprehensive vinyl catalogue system going, you sometimes have to put up with some of the more zealous anoraks, who insist on every 'i' dotted, every 't' crossed and every comma in place, but if you can live with that, then it really is the most detailed listing method I know of.

Second the "zealous" remark below - people are not exactly encouraged to help participate there by other contributors or even the staff, but still it is quite good and if Bruji or any others into cataloguing music collections intend to be serious, they will have to work with Discogs, but none does as far as I am aware. Who only collects CDs with a a code found in Amazons databases (and others)??
