CDDB/freedb and ad blocking tricks
Authored by: j-beda on May 15, '01 04:22:44PM
What I would like to do is modify the way iTunes (and other programs) access the database of song titles. There are instructions for doing so in OS 9.1 by playing with the hosts, but no instructions for OS X, here: http://www.cam.org/~cwatson/freedb/freedb.html There are unix style hosts files for this CD trick that I will now be able to try with Mac OS X. http://www.freedb.org/sections.php?op=viewarticle&artid=46 A list of ad domains for hosts files is maintained at: http://www.ecst.csuchico.edu/~atman/spam/adblock.shtml
