Comax Posted April 24, 2007 Share Posted April 24, 2007 Hi Everyone, I've been messing around with Pandora and had a go with the Time Shifting Program. It didn't work straight off the bat and I wasn't too fussed so I left it (no offense, it does look good). I then had a look for flash media downloaders (i.e. programs that'll download any type of media streaming through flash) Came across Replay Media Catcher. Apparently it used to be free or something but isn't anymore... doesn't matter. Anyway the point is the interesting way it deals with pandora. It listens for Mime Types in browser requests and then grabs the link. As you might expect (ie if you did this manually) this results in a mp3 with SCRABAXO90HADF98Y34HASD89.MP3 as the file name.... and no tags. But then as if by magic it changes the file name to Artist - Title.mp3 This is interesting as it isn't a Pandora specific program. Anyhow, I look around the program and stubbed upon a file called MusicDNS.... interesting....google... http://musicip.com/dns/index.jsp Basically there is a service that allows you to submit a hash of the mp3 you are listening to and it will return the Tags. There is a DEV kit which allows you to make your own proggies to go search for the tags. It's free for under 1000 MusicDNS checks a day but you don't even need to Register. They also have a full blown organizer that does other stuff as well (except it won't rename the files, only the tags ???) It's well worth a look, if not for this project then just for something that is just incredible useful. I last! I can find out who did all those unnamed MP3s I have acquired over the years... - Comax PS - Replay Media Catcher is pretty decent (just a little pricey), but the demo is worth a look. I might have a browse for Open Source Versions Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
