MusicBrainz Metadata Initiative was formed to organize a means of exchanging
metadata describing media files on the Internet. The vocabulary was employed in the development of MusicBrainz Metadata (formerly
CD Index Project), a Dublin Core metadata application and free web service that
uses XML and Resource Description Framework (RDF) to make artists names, track
numbers, song titles and other metadata describing musical content downloadable
to the user's CD player, MP3 player, Vorbis player, or other client.
The first player to fully
support MusicBrainz is FreeAmp.
