I'm using the sample tutorial command for the mp3 hosted on my website, but it's not identifying the track (the track is in the database)

The mp3 was created by recording the song from youtube.

I'm just wondering what might be going wrong, because the song sounds fine when I play it back.

OK, I just learned that not all of the songs in the echonest database are in the echoprint database -

bwhitman: hi, the echoprint database only has a small fraction of songs you can find in song/search. We are working hard on growing that but as of right now you'll want to try ENMFP instead. Read the documentation on song/identify and also join the echoprint google group.
