How do multimedia database work?
Posted on 2009-04-20
I record music and have a huge library of audio files (.wav) files that I want to be able to store, index, and extract information from. I am also learning programming and was thinking about trying c# as a front end and using a multimedia database management system for the storage of the raw audio files. I want to be able to do comparisons with all of the audio information so I can match similarities between songs or riffs that have created. I know that I could find a product to handle this, but I want to learn it.
I am familiar with RDBMS's and OOP but I am having a hard time finding information on MMDBMs. Is a MMBMS just a OODBMS with some extra extensions to handle the specific types.
What I need to know is:
-Schema and how it differs from a RDBMS
-Logical and Physical Storage
-Any additional information would be great
