The service allows interaction with an open source database of audio fingerprints. The provider's Chromaprint application generates these visual representations of audio data, and the Acoustid service allows users to store and retrieve those images and similar ones.
The service promotes integration with the MusicBrainz database of music metadata, but support for similar applications is possible. Methods support upload and lookup for Acoustid fingerprints, along with listing by MusicBrainz or generic identifier.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
