Rust bindings for MusicBrainz libdiscid

Build Status crates.io Documentation License


discid provides Rust bindings for the MusicBrainz DiscID library libdiscid. It allows calculating DiscIDs (MusicBrainz and freedb) for Audio CDs. Additionally the library can extract the MCN/UPC/EAN and the ISRCs from disc.

This library is currently in early development and the API may still change.


  • libdiscid >= 0.6.0


Read only the TOC

use discid::DiscId;

fn main() {
  // Specifying the device is optional. If set to `None` a platform
  // specific default will be used.
  let device = Some("/dev/cdrom");
  let disc = DiscId::read(device).expect("Reading disc failed");
  println!("ID: {}", disc.id());

Read the TOC and ISRCs

use discid::{DiscId, Features};

fn main() {
  let disc = DiscId::read_features(None, Features::ISRC).expect("Reading disc failed");
  println!("Disc ID: {}", disc.id());

  for track in disc.tracks() {
    println!("Track #{} ISRC: {}", track.number, track.isrc);

See the API documentation for details. Additional examples are available in the examples/ directory.


The source code for discid is available on GitHub.
