Default Bug#490135: RFP: fdmf -- find duplicate music files

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.org, debian-multimedia@lists.debian.org

* Package name : fdmf
Version : 0.0.9r
Upstream Author : Kurt Rosenfeld
* URL : http://w140.com/audio/
* License : GPL
Programming Lang: C, Perl
Description : find duplicate music files

fdmf finds pairs of music files in a collection that are likely to
contain the same music. It works on the music itself, not on the
filename, tags, or headers. It uses an audio fingerprint, or perceptual
hash to recognise the duplicate files.

I intend to ITP this at some point, probably after lenny is released,
but I would be very glad if someone else wants to take it over. Haven't
yet evaluated how good it is.

FWIW, not very. fmdf is, like almost all other free (and lots of non-free!)
software projects in this class, very rudimentary and written with people
with very limited DSP knowledge. If you want a good music recognition system
and are prepared to implement it yourself, take a look at the Tuneprint paper
(I can probably get a PDF if you're interested), and/or Google's Waveprint
paper (which is available for download from their Labs pages, IIRC).
