Before using Media Server to recognize audio clips, you must train your IDOL Speech Server. HPE recommends training Speech Server by sending actions similar to the following example:
http://speechserver:15000/a=addTask&type=AfpAddTrackWav &file=Clip1.mp3 &tag=FirstClip &pack=Music
Media Server performs audio matching using the acoustic landmark approach, by sending Speech Server the request
action=AddTask&Type=AfpMatchWav. This means that you must train the Speech Server using the actions
AfpAddTrackWav, and so on. Do not use the actions that begin with
Afpt, such as
AfptAddTrackWav, because these relate to acoustic template matching.
Media Server can only use audio fingerprint databases that exist in the default audio fingerprint database directory. This directory is specified by the
AFPDir parameter, in the
[Paths] section of the Speech Server configuration file. The example request (above) adds audio fingerprints to a database (named
Music) in the default directory. To ensure that training is added to the default directory, HPE recommends against setting the
PackDir action parameter in your training actions, and recommends using the
AfpDb parameter only when the specified database exists in the default directory.
