Hi I'm currently developing a VGM player for Android, and I wanted to know if there is an API to query the VGM db?
If there isn't can use an HTML parser to scrap the website for my queries?

TIA

Philippe

Hello. There currently isn't an API. You may scrape the pages as long as you cache the result on your server, so the user requests go to your server instead of ours. Also please don't use our mp3 files and cache the vgm or zip files on your server as well. Also mind the fact that we don't know if vgmrips is legal, but I think it's ok as long as we're not making money from it, so if your app is monetized, you might have legal problems with the copyright holders.

I want to add that we do publish the "all in one" packs every once in a while (that you could upload to your server), and that there is a mirror (now a little outdated) at joshw.info.

Speaking of All-In-Ones, aren't we a little due? I mean, it'll be a year come St. Patty's Day (Mar. 17).

OK, I'll remove the ads.
It's not like I was actually making any money with this player anyway. :mrgreen:
