Music Hash identification
#1
So now v17 is out, lets start to discuss some new features Smile

I'm working with another media player application who are integrating a music scraper into their interface. The developer is frustrated with all the different tagging formats out there and is very keen to introduce a music "hash" for for track and album lookups.

Does anyone have any thoughts on how it should be done? Any method needs to be fast and reliable, and work independently of a users tagging.

I can handle the back-end database scraping stuff and API.

We've looked at acoustID and opensubtitles hashing. Both have upsides and downsides.

Current thinking is to do a custom hash of a tiny amount of data after the 1min mark of a track and -1min from the end as a 2nd hash. Anyone got any comments about that approach?

EDIT: Please help out by hashing your music collection with our Windows app here:
