Update: Requires a token, which has a free trial you can only use for a few weeks or so. Disappointing
- S'ha valorat amb 3 sobre 5per Firefox user 12744283, fa 7 mesosIn my previous review, I gave this extension a 1-star rating due to a bug that required a subscription to perform any actions. However, I believe the issue has since been fixed, so I decided to give this extension another try.
According to the addon description, it claims to "Identify any music from any website in your browser." One might assume that this means you can freely identify any song on any page, considering the extension is open-source and the developer has a donation link on the page. Unfortunately, that assumption is incorrect. It does work for free on YouTube and Twitch (and possibly on some other websites), but on any other site, an active subscription to the service is required. Regrettably, the developer failed to disclose this information in the description.
Regarding YouTube song recognition, I attempted to identify songs on lofi girl music streams (both lofi and synthwave radios), but it failed most of the time. This was surprising, given that it was practically the same use case as shown in the demo video.
For standalone songs, the recognition works fairly well. However, when there is someone speaking over the song, such as in let's play videos or on Twtich streams, its reliability significantly decreases, even for popular music. Based on my limited testing, it was able to identify only 2 out of 10 songs in different attempts. That's quite disappointing.
Resposta del desenvolupadors'ha publicat fa 4 mesosHi, thanks a lot for the update!
- There are 10 websites where the extension is not supposed to work without an API token, to prevent people (usually, employees of these websites' owners) from using the extension for work. The list:
"watzatsong", "coub", "gyrostream.com", "cms.onerpm.com", "rumedia.io", "decabroda.studio", "adsintegrity.net", "file:///", "v16-tcs.tiktokcdn.com", "rmxindia.in", "vk.com".
The extension should work on any website that doesn't have any of these strings in the URL.
Can you please send us a link where the extension refused to identify the song? This is likely a bug (perhaps a false positive match with the strings above?). Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Regarding YouTube streams, some of them broadcast songs that are "not copyrighted"/were not released on digital platforms, and unfortunately we don't have them in our DB.
- 2 out of 10 songs with people talking over is quite a low number; can you try increasing the recording length in the settings to 12 seconds and see if that improves?
We really appreciate you giving the extension another try and making the update!
- S'ha valorat amb 3 sobre 5per RokeJulianLockhart, fa 8 mesosSlow to recognize when compared to Shazam. No history, much less synchronized to something like last.fm. No automatic music recognition. Doesn't modify the colouration of its graphical interface to adhere to theme of browser nor system. Would like a link on lyrics' page to view the lyrics at their origin rather than within the extension.
Resposta del desenvolupadors'ha publicat fa 8 mesosHi, thank you so much for the feedback!
You can change the speed of music recognition (the number of seconds it records the audio for before sending it to the music recognition API) in the settings. Were you able to see the settings section?
There is history. Every identified song is added to it. Do you not see it? It’s displayed below the identified song or if there’s no audio on the current page.
Can you please tell us what you mean by automatic music recognition?
Thank you for the feedback regarding changing the graphical interface. We’d be happy if someone contributed to the extension (it’s open source and published on GitHub) and added the design and support for the various browser themes. It wouldn’t be great if everything is dark and there was our extension with a bright background. Do you, by any chance, have examples of extensions that are great at doing this?
The music recognition API doesn’t provide links to the origin of the lyrics. The idea is that it’s possible to read along. Do you feel like it would be better if, instead, there was a link that opened google for the lyrics or searched on some service that provides lyrics?
We’d really appreciate the answers or any other help with that!
