About

"The idea behind this project is really simple, I had a huge collection of downloaded songs on my pc, but a lot of them didn't have cover albums, information about the artist, and in some cases, lyrics. I hated listening to the songs and seeing a blank cover album, or not having detailed information."

This is exactly why I started writing my own program, using different methods to reach my goal.

I tried using various web Api's to retrieve information from the Google or Microsoft servers. The first results were really good, it worked good and it was accurate. But I was never able to get "all" the information I wanted.

Many hours already went into this project and I'm determined to finish it.

 Those are just a few screenshots from the code. 

Regarding the video, it's just a small demo, but for now it requests information from spotify and then modifies the title, artist name and the cover album.

I will later add a user interface to increase the user experience, so it would be much easier to modify the content of each individual song manually. Not only would you be able to use Spotify's data, but also those from other databases as mentioned in the comment section.

I would like to leave this program open source, as it is, so when the project is finished I will push it on GitHub where everyone can download it!

Risks and challenges

The major problem or challenge 'we' would have to overcome is finding a way to retrieve information from a reliable source which is cost free. If a lot of people would use this software on a regular basis, the amout of requests for the servers would also increase drastically. Which in most cases costs money.
