processUrl a YouTube or Soundcloud URL, and it will return an
id which can eventually be used to match tracks with, once the URL has been processed. Your request will return immediately once the URL is verified. You’ll be able to track the progress using an API call explained in the next section. The request will return an

Since the download is happening on our servers, there’s no regular way for you to check download progress on your end. You can make this simple call using the
id provided from your

Once the process finishes, this will return a
search_id which can be used to search with the
|id||yes||ID given from
Now that you have a
search_id, you can retrieve your matches. Matches are generated at the time of the request, not the time of the generated search. This means that if you want to save a popular
search_id for use later, the matches will update with additional tracks as they are added to your library.
