Audio & Video Recognition (Programming skills required)

This only supports Audio Fingerprinting and Query by Humming, if you want to detect covers/live performances, please use File Scanning.

Create a project

Go to your dashboard, build and configure an Audio & Video Recognition (AVR) project and attach the bucket named ACRCloud Music as below.
Choose Recorded Audio for the audio source to deal with noise.
Choose Line-in Audio for the audio source if you want to recognize files without noise.
Enable 3rd Party ID Integration if you need ISRC, UPC or IDs of Spotify, Deezer, Youtube etc.

Find the credentials

Save the “host”, “access_key”, “access_secret” of your project for future use. You can find them in the places shown below.

Integrate with SDK/API

Start sending requests with Mobile SDK, Backend SDK, Identification API or File Scan Tool. You can find all of the SDKs and Tools on this page.
For using our SDKs to scan files, SDKs will use 10 seconds of an audio clip for the recognition of a single request, you will need to send multiple requests to 1 file with different parts of the file if you want to get results from different parts of 1 file.

Manage via Console API

Basically you can manage everything you see above via the Console API below:
