Audio FingerPrinting and Matching Using Acoustid Chromaprint on Windows With Python

I needed to generate audio fingerprints for matching/pattern recognition. I should say I tried a couple of approaches like using MFCC and spectrogram matching using Computer Vision techniques but I was not successfully with it. Using acoustid Chromaprint gave positive results. Since I was using windows, I had to compile the latest version using Visual Studio.
Since I my target was to get wav format to work, I didnt need ffmpeg dependency, so I removed it. You will need the avcodec and ffwt libs. The algorithm used for Acoustid for finger print matching is buried in a PostgreSQL user-defined C function which I easily translated to python for use.
