Projects / DigitalDJ


DigitalDJ is an SQL-based MP3-player frontend designed for people who want to create an MP3 version of their CD collection. It is designed to work with the Grip ripping/encoding application (but can be used separately). When Grip encodes MP3 files, it will place all of the song information into an SQL database. DigitalDJ can then use this information to create playlists based on a number of criteria.

            Insert old tunes into database !?

            Hi, I have lost my mySQL database when I upgraded the distro. Now I have several CD albums ripped with 'grip' in my $HOME but they are no part of the SQL database anymore.

            Is there an utility to "re-import" these using the ddj format ?

            This is a very very nice application, that complements 'grip', a graphical CD-ripper and encoder by the same author. I would recommend these tools to anyone.

            Anyone have a Perl script to convert the old database to the new one? I would hate to rerip all my MP3 files.
