I plan on working on a rather simple music player, as the ones i use now are bloated and such, and it gives me a chance to write a program that focuses on performance.

I need to know the average size of someones music library, preferably total amount of songs, and size if possible. Reason being is I'm trying to reason out a proper initial capacity of the database I'm writing/setting up. It will be able to expand of course, but I still need that initial number.

Thanks to anyone who can help.


Plus, I'm just kinda curious.

How big is Spotify's? That big.

Itunes currently holds 7000 tracks. Should probably be about 20 000 in total on the computer.

150+ cds

30+ vinyls

Around 5000-6000 songs and 18 gigs I think. That's the library I have in the external drive, the one in the computer is 443 songs and 3,77 gigs, ridiculous in comparison.

7,581 songs = 43 Gigs

But my iPod started getting laggy once I hit around 4,000 songs.

Most of my digital collection is in FLAC though, so an average song (4 minutes) is close to 60-70 MB.
