Bugs / The Precision Check Does Not Work
« on: May 11, 2013, 16:40:48 »
The precision check hasn't failed me yet, until now. I have a few albums on my computer belonging to the same artist. One of those albums is a Best Of which contains the same songs as the other albums. The only difference is that the audio files are a few seconds longer due to a bigger silent intro. Out of the 15 songs, 4 are not marked as duplicate. It is strange, because all the other songs are above 90% precision, while these 4 jump out with a little as 33.8% precision. The songs are exactly the same minus a few seconds.

Any ideas why this is happening?

I could send a few samples, if you want.

Well, that is at least something. Every time I get some new files, I could just drop them into a predefined group #1 folder first and then run it against the rest of my collection. That could work.

Thanks for the explanation.

I am not sure about the technical details, so it might not be possible. But theoretically speaking there are performance issues which could be solved by implementing suggestion #2. Unless, the search algorithm and caching are working differently.

Comparing 1 song against 10.000 could be relatively fast. But comparing all 10.000 songs against each other will go pretty slow. Sometimes I don't want to find all duplicates in 1 folder, but I just want to check 1 file against all the files I have. If caching is necessary so be it. It would still go faster than comparing all files with each other, no?

PS. Similarity's search algorithm is far better than the other apps I have tried so far. I would even go further to say most duplicate finders are pretty broken. Similarity does a nice job though.
