I'm thinking about coding a Java applet that would take in the top 100 or so songs, find their samples (music that appears within the songs) off WhoSampled.com and then playing those samples off of YouTube.
My problem is the playing part, let's say I have the URL. What's the best way to deal with that in Java, do you think ripping the audio off and playing the audio from there would be best, or should I try to control a sentient YouTube player.
I'm leaning towards extracting the audio, and this: thread mentions a way to extract that audio, however the code:
ffmpeg -i - audio.mp3
Is not written in Java. How do I, if possible convert this to run in a Java program? Or does anyone know a good way in Java
Thank you for your suggestions.
