Projects / Cajun


Cajun is a program that allows you to turn any computer into a massive audio jukebox for your car or home. It uses LCD displays/keypads, and supports infrared remote controls. Soundcard output is delivered to your (car or home) stereo for amplification. The software supports a playlist and shuffle mode.

Release Notes: This release changes the FilePlayer module responsible for MP3s and Oggs; menus are now generated on the fly, rather than requiring the user to configure the file tree manually. Many new input and output device drivers have also been added.

Release Notes: The device drivers were redesigned with OO, Ogg Vorbis support was added to mpg123, and speed enhancements, an IceCast client, and a GPS client were added. xaudio support was removed, and a Java cxterm client was included.

Release Notes: After a year and a half of work, Cajun 4 is nearing a full release, and is quite ready for general use. Cajun 4 is a complete redesign and rewrite of the Cajun 3 software. It now supports multiple audio streams, multiple input/output devices per stream, different-sized displays running at the same time, a backend SQL database (MySQL), and Web administration via Apache.

    Release Notes: Version 3.0-8 is the first version created by the newly-assembled Cajun development team. It contains far too many features to list them all, but they include FM/Video4Linux support, icecast/shoutcast support, CrystalFontz serial display support, and choice of mpg123 or xaudio for driving the sound card. Version 3.0-8 will probably be the last in the 3.0 series; the core is being re-written to allow better module independance.
