Hi,

I have a collection of mp3 songs with title and artist names. How do I automatically add them to my own database on the echoprint server?

Johnbosco,

Are you running your own Echoprint server, that is, have you set up Solr and Tokyo Tyrant according to the instructions in the echoprint-server distribution (README.md)?

Once you have done so, ingesting the fingerprints into the server is a two-stage process. The overview is as follows:

  1. Use the echoprint-codegen to make fingerprints of your MP3s.
  2. Ingest the resulting fingerprints (JSON files) using the fastingest.py script included with echoprint-server.

The details are in the documentation referred to above, but please do let us know if any part of the process is unclear to you.

Hi,

After booting my own server, I tried to ingest the fingerprint with this command:

curl http://0.0.0.0:8080/ingest -d "fp_code=/Users/tayebwajb/alicia.JSON&length=231&codever=4.12"

It gives an error saying it cannot decode the code string. Am I doing this right? Since the code string is too long, copying and pasting it is messy especially on the small mac screen.

I also used the fastingest.py following the instructions on https://github.com/echonest/echoprint-server. Does fastingest.py ingest into my local server? How do I query my local server?

Can I use other formats like .wav or is it strictly mp3s?

Regards,

Johnbosco
