Clean Content Play Mode

Registered by Daniel Fore on 2011-12-24

I think we've all had the embarrassing moment of having a song drop the F bomb while a small child is in the room. It'd be great if there was some way to enable a "clean content" play mode so that songs with "inappropriate" content would just be skipped.

The most obvious way that I can think to do this is to fetch the lyrics and run them through a language filter. Then we'd just whitelist the "clean" songs.

We could also re-use this mechanism as a parental control method (with an optional admin password lock?).

So really, we want to have an "Explicit" flag on each song which you can set to true in the song editor, and if any cuss words are picked up in lyrics it will automatically set explicit to true. -Scott

^ That sounds like a good idea to me. I'm sure many of the music stores also support this metadata too. -- aroman

I think that it can be done as a plugin, and does anyone know if there is an online-database that know if a song has explicit contain ?

Why would you want to censor it? I think this is a pointless idea -- dizzi90
