Editing FCFs


Log in to the platform with your username and password (

Click on the FCF tab in order to see a list of all the Unknowns.

On the Active Filters tab (right column), select View Filters. Then, click on the start and end dates on the calendar (add other filters as necessary) to see all the FCF’s that have been generated over a particular period of time. Once all filters are selected, click on Apply Filters.


Click on the Play button to listen to the audio reference.

Option 1

If you consider this reference to be unrecognisable - for example, if there’s just speech and no music, if there’s a lot of noise/interference, or if it’s a sound effect, change the status to IGNORED. The ignored tracks don’t count in the Vericast statistics - for example, in Labels, in Catalogues, and don’t appear when you mark 'show FCF identifications'.

Option 2

If you can’t recognise a track, but you decide to try again later or you want to ask a colleague for assistance, leave it as UNRESOLVED and check the tick box next to it.

Option 3

When you recognise the music, edit the FCF. 


To edit the identified track click on the “Pencil” tool.

Click on the spectrogram wave and, by dragging your cursor, select the part of the audio that contains music. Please make sure you select only music, not voice nor sounds (so do not select the speaker presentation or comments or sound effects, for example). Click on Select Segment.

Fill in the track metadata. The Artist and the Track Name are mandatory fields. There is an auto-complete function available so at any moment you will have options to choose from for accurate data.

To avoid any errors when assigning a version, listen to the suggestions (if available) to find the same version of the track that you are editing.

If none of them is the same version, choose "I confirm that none of the above corresponds to my track. I want to continue using my own metadata". This action creates a new track version.

Please, note that you should always indicate the version in the track title.

When you finish the process, the already edited unknown track is then assigned to a new status - Pending, which stands for ‘pending to be inserted in our database’.
