Need Help Creating Website Search Engine

Posted 26 June 2014 - 10:03 PM

Hello, i'm new here and i don't know if im posting in the right section.

I have an idea for a website search engine, i just...don't know how to make it. My idea is that you put in a youtube link like (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cd98023-239) and the program listens to the different elements (rythme,beat,tempo,melody) of the song and finds other songs (on youtube) that a have very similar elements. But i want to prevent it from coming up with the same song.

I have no experience in coding what so ever, so if somebody could tell me what language/process i need to do and how easy could this be done? Thanks in advance.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Quite a few things to discuss here.

You want to make something like shazam that finds similar music based on the tones?

That's not a "website search engine". A website search engine is like bing, google, alta vista, gopher, etc. You are looking to build a website that analyzes a song for your metrics and compares it to other songs previous analyzed. Basically a song processor and a database, and not a search engine.

Oh geeze.. if you want this project to succeed you should put an ad out for a dev to hire. Seriously this is some complex workings on the song processing let alone database comparisons, a website, etc. If you never programmed then this is *NOT* the first project for you. Maybe a year down the road, but not now.

You'll need the typical web technologies for the page. HTML/CSS, php, mysql, etc. The BPM analyzer and such you can either eyeball something that someone else made (and pay for a license), or take a stab at some sort of HTML5 web audio (http://css.dzone.com/articles/exploring-html5-web-audio) ( "bpm analyzer tutorial html5" )

It's not easy - especially for someone with no experience. If you want this off the ground then I would strongly urge paying someone to do it.

It sounds like you're trying to re-create Pandora, except artificially and in real time.
