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.
