I have copied a list of MP3 songs to my desktop. and after adding them to a playlist in Windows Media Player, they got additional meta-data information such as the related album, release year etc.
So apperanrtly this data is fetched from some online service that windows/media player is connected to.
My question is: What is the name of this service, and is it open for public use so I could also use this API ? - send a name of artist and song and get in return the same information about it to a different application that I develop
