The miscellaneous resources tab posted by the organizers frustrated us all. So we decided to do something to change that.
What it does
Tells you if a link redirects to any form of a rickroll. Works with any video that contains the audio from the original song.
How we built it
First, we used an API, audd, to recognize and compare audio in different audio files. We then extended this code to take a YouTube url using YouTube-dl, meaning that it could take in a url and recognize if it contained a song. We added a function to follow any redirects. Finally, we made the front end element of the website for a more user friendly UI
Challenges we ran into
File conversion errors were very frustrating, but in the end, we managed to fix those.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
What's next for amibeingrickrolled
We're going to try to expand functionality beyond youtube videos to videos on all platforms.
