Is it possible to access the "AutoTag" feature from the SDK

Hello!

I just want to access the AutoTag feature from outside. Is it possible to call it directly or through the SDK? If so how?

I asked already Gracenote directly and registered as an developer. But as a freetime programme i´m not allowed to use the "MusicID" feature. So maybe the Winamp SDK is a solution?
Gracenote also told me that you need a very complex infrastructure behind that MusicID feature. Is that true?
Or is it just like sending some audioframes to Gracenote and get back the correct identification as of artist title and so on?

Best regards
Martin

Unfortunately, you can't interact with gracenote in winamp as a 3rd party developer. What are you trying to do?

http://musicbrainz.org/ is a good open source alternative to gracenote. Try that

Oh thanks for your answer - providing me a wonderful new way to do that.
I hopefully manage all those new things like PUID and so on

Thanks a lot!
