Is there a trial?

Yes, free access to a trial data set that includes 2 months of Tunefind data is available. Please contact us at [email protected] to get access.

Why is the API not returning a song listed on Tunefind?

If there are songs not being returned by the API, it's either because the episode air date or movie release date isn't within the time period accessible for your plan, or because the song has not yet received enough user votes on Tunefind to be syndicated out via the API. We use a karma-based verification system to help ensure that our data is accurate before syndicating via the API. Customers who need comprehensive real time data may use our Enterprise plan to get access to complete song data (including songs not otherwise syndicated), along with a confidence score.

Can I use my own affiliate links?

API customers at the Enterprise level are welcome to monetize using their own affiliate accounts.

Does the API include images?

No. If you're looking for high quality images for tv shows or movies, we suggest checking out the nice folks at The Movie Database and IGDB.

Can I use the Tunefind API for a student project?

We do not provide access to the full Tunefind dataset or our Enterprise features for student projects. You may find our trial access useful for your project or for a proof of concept.

Why am I getting a 401 Unauthorized error?

Please make sure you are using your API username and API password and contacting the correct endpoint, which can be found on your Subscription Dashboard. These credentials are different from your Tunefind website username and password.
