MP3 Management can be used to build a catalog of MP3 files in a MySQL database. It can traverse a given directory to find MP3 files. For each MP3 file that is found, it extracts its ID3 tags, including album art, and adds an entry in a MySQL database. The class also extracts 20 second clips of each MP3 file and stores them in a subdirectory named clips. The duration of the clips is configurable. The class is intended to be used with the Id3 Tag Correction and Downloading script, which corrects id3 tags and downloads lyrics, artist biographies, and other information using Web services and other Web sites.
MP3 Host is a CGI script that will gather, on-the-fly, a list of all media files by extension in (sub)folders and present a page for people to access the content. It has customizable options. Its output is updated at each load. It features hands free maintenance, and makes an effective MP3 server.
