extract songs from iphone then can it be recognized by strawberry?
@jonas has kindly remind me there was a forum for these kind of questions so here i am.
since I'm not sure it is actually a feature of this software I'm going to ask the question first,
Is this program capable of analyze any music files, send it to one of the analyzing song services and retag the song appropriately?
I'm asking that simply because I've tried with the files extracted from my iphone library.
By the way to bounce back on the https://github.com/strawberrymusicplayer/strawberry/issues/212
I could tell you it's very simple to extract songs from an iphone new generations. You just need to mount the iphone with the ```
In those you will have your old mp3 files that you have exported to your iphone previously and you will have the files you've bought from the itunes store with their appropriate plist files and cover. But of course those files are m4a and without any tags inside. Which leads me to my question, is strawberry capable to analyze those files and detect which songs is it? Because it has not been able to do it on my setup apparently. If yes, to which services does it send it over and how does it do it? Would it be like an spectrum analyzing as shazam does since every songs has its own?

Not exactly sure what you mean by analyzing music files, but Strawberry calculates a fingerprint of songs that it uses to identify tags from the musicbrainz service, so it can auto-fill these in using the tag editor if they are in musicbrainz database.
I'm not familiar with ifuse
Yeah sorry I don't know anything on how those identification/fingreprinting works for music songs .... So total noob in this area. So is it like a checksum of a file then ?
And all those services have proprietary database then ? or proprietary algorithm to recognize the song?
And I guess shazam doesn't have any API for using their service for that?
So I guess by now you understood what I meant, it's the fact to be able to recognize the song and being able to add the metadata ....
I have some music, which are not that unknown or that for a niche public... and which are then not recognize by tfingerprinting analyzer, can I improve it in some way to make them more recognizable?
That's my ultimate question.
And about ifuse, it came knowledge to me with the pegasus program breach and the amnesty program to alleviate any malware or intrusion on iOS device
as you can see there is a specific library there. That's where come ifuse from.
It simply mount the iOS filesystem and of course you have more or less access to things depending if the devices are rooted.
But as I said there are simply two folder to extract the files from. There are also the covers and the plist files. . So it could be useful maybe to merge them together? just an idea like that of course.
