Combining Audio Fingerprints
MetadataShow full item record
Large music collections are now more common than ever before. Yet, search technology for music is still in its infancy. Audio fingerprinting is one method that allows searching for music. In this thesis several audio fingerprinting solutions are combined into a single solution to determine if such a combination can yield better results than any of the solutions can separately. The solution is used to find duplicate music files in a personal collection. The results show that applying the weighted root-mean square (WRMS) to the problem most effectively ranked the results in a satisfying manner. It was notably better than the other approaches tried. The WRMS produced 61% more correct matches than the original FDMF solution, and 49% more correct matches than libFooID.
