Just to let you know, following our discussion from last week, I'v started writing a small utility to grab the FMA content from archive.org.
I plan to mirror at least a part of the FMA on open.audio using this :)
So, I've imported ~25Gb of music from the Free Music Archive on https://open.audio using this method.
It worked beautifully, and it's now available for the whole #Funkwhale federation. Follow this library from your Funkwhale instance and you'll have access to it:
You can also visit https://open.audio/library/ directly to listen to all this new content! (you don't need an account ;)
This import went well too, and I launched another mirrorring tasks for 4000 additionnal albums before going to sleep yesterday.
All of this is currently importing into https://open.audio, but I'm confident saying that in a ~60 minutes, almost 350Gb of additionnal CC music (6000 albums, 40K tracks) from the FMA will be available!
In total, I'd say we have roughly 40% of the FMA mirrored on open.audio, which takes less space than I initially expected.
