Freedb, the CD database is gone, here are alternatives

Freedb shutdown earlier this year, and it was the default CDDB for Asunder, which is what I usually use for ripping CDs. 

I found two alternatives:

  1. gnudb.gnudb.org, port 8880
    This is a replacement for freedb, with the stated goal of keeping the database alive, free, and active. 
  2. freedb.freac.org, port 80
    This is another replacement for freedb, and seems to be somewhat more complete than gnudb.

In Asunder, go to Preferences - Advanced, and fill in one of these server names and port.
