Help to read Windows Media Player DataBase

recommender

#1

Hi everyone!

I’m trying to build a recommender system for music. For this, I’m choosing my own preference for music stored in windows media player. But the problem is, I don’ t know how to read the database file (extension .wmdb) in python or convert it into readable .csv file. (the .wmdb file can be found at C:\Users\jalFaizy\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Media Player\CurrentDatabase_320.wmdb)

Any help would be appreciated!

I haven’t tried it, but it seems you have to have interaction with .NET libraries. Wish there was a simpler way!
