The libdvdetect library provides fast lookup of DVDs, similar to existing services for CDs like Gracenote, freeDB or MusicBrainz.

The DVD Detection Library (libdvdetect) is a library to lookup DVDs in a database and provide information about e.g. title, UPC/EAN or even cover arts. It is OS-independent and compiles for Windows or Unix operating systems. Mac support is also planned.

What the library does not provide is DVD ripping and decryption. It reads the structure (e.g. titles and chapters) and generates a special checksum to look up the database.

More details at The database can also be searched using a web browser at

For those who are curious I suggest downloading the binaries from to try it out (windows only).


This is a beta version. Please check for news updates.
