Mood player can sort the data according to your mood and without much of an effort, so forget about laboriously assigning keywords to maintain an overview of your favorite music and photos.
Be it melancholic songs, dance rhythms or romantic background music, the mood player can recognize musical characteristics and sort songs according to moods.
Developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT in Ilmenau, the mood player blends in suitable images to the rhythm of the music.
The software compiles musical slide shows to match how the user feels at the time.
Based on the GenreID music analysis tool, the program trains the PC to recognize different musical characteristics.
Images that suit the mood are automatically added to the play list and shown at a speed that matches the tempo of the music.
The mood player does it by classifying the media in real time and makes the acquired information available in a database.
It analyzes the mood of the images on the basis of several distinguishing parameters, including brightness, contrast, edges, colors, textures, layout and shape.
Warm colors, for instance, represent friendliness and strong emotions, whereas cold colors have a more calming, distanced and melancholic effect.
Factors like saturation, brightness, structures and the combination and arrangement of different colors are also decisive in the image analysis.
It also sorts the pieces of music according to mood parameters, such as volume, tone, melody, rhythm, instruments and vocals, automatically, without the need for tedious cataloging.
