Mr. Voice

Mr. Voice is a specific-purpose Perl/Tk front-end for an MP3 database. It was written to provide an easy-to-use MP3 solution for the production booth of an improv comedy troupe, and as such is tailored to providing quick searches and playback of MP3s that are split up into categories. While not intended to be a standalone desktop MP3 player, others in a similar situation may find it useful.

    Release Notes: This release featured better Mr. Voice Online integration with the new online database. The song filename is now displayed in the "Edit Song" menu and the time of a song is displayed next to the hot key listing.

      Release Notes: This release fixes bugs that would cause serious problems when trying to add new songs or edit existing songs.

        Release Notes: A bug has been fixed where attempting to use the online version checked when your Internet connection was down would cause Mr. Voice to fail to start. A long-standing bug where searching for a string with an apostrophe in it would cause an error has been fixed. A bug where adding a new song file with no ID3 information would blank out the title and artist that you put in has been fixed. Now the manual title and artist are only overwritten when there is valid ID3 data in the file.

          Release Notes: Mr. Voice Online was added as an integrated sound-file sharing system for improv clubs. Bundles were implemented as a way to move songs between Mr. Voice installations without having to re-enter data. Optional password protection was added for data changes. A new Web site was created. Mac OS X Application bundles are now available.

            Release Notes: A bug that would cause the application to hang when it was run to create a fresh installation has been fixed.

            I think that's pretty well spelled out on the Mr.
            Voice website:


            "Mr. Voice is written in Perl/Tk, and designed to be
            used
            on a *NIX system (Linux, FreeBSD, etc.), however there
            is also a version for Windows. I've also verified that it
            runs under MacOS X using perl 5.8 and Apple's
            X11.app. It uses xmms or WinAmp 2 for the actual
            playing of the MP3s, andMySQL as a backend."


            "Windows users only need to get the Mr. Voice ZIP
            file,
            MySQL, and WinAmp. The .exe file contains all needed
            modules, so you don't have to add any extra Perl
            stuff"


            And in the documentation (http://
            www.lunenburg.org/mrvoice/doc/html/
            c170.html#AEN175)
