I see how many applications like MusicMatch, detects (only introducing a music CD) wich albums it is. I think that it uses songs duration... but, anyone knows how it is done for sure??

    This is a programming related Q&A site. In your question I can't see any programming related subject, so voting to move to superuser.com where you might get more appropriate answers. – Darin Dimitrov Jul 11 '10 at 21:39
  • Here is the programming issue: Is there a php implementation of this?? – mRt Jul 11 '10 at 21:48

Most commonly a service such as CDDB or MusicBrainz is used. CDDB uses track duration only, while MusicBrainz uses acoustic fingerprinting through the MusicDNS service.
