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.
dmcat is a Digital Music CATalog program. Written in Perl, it recurses a physical directory, searching for digital music files, and builds a virtual catalog (out of symbolic links) in a sister directory. It currently only supports the MP3 format using ID3 tags. The following hierarchies are supported: Album, Artist, Artist_Album, Genre, Miscellaneous (catch-all), Title, and Year.
duke is a curses based frontend integrated into the latest version of mpg123. It was written because of the need of a textbased player for playing from a remote computer with telnet or even a text-terminal. It allows you to navigate through directories, add files or whole directories to the playlist, sort, search, randomize select and delete from it. It also parses ID3-tags, shows songlengths and has limited mouse-support.
empegify is a networkable system for creating MP3s. It is designed so that you can perform the ripping on one set of machines, the encoding on another, storing the data to a final machine. It features CDDB support and maintainable code. It also includes a simple Web interface for easy monitoring.
fillrio.sh is a standalone shell script that loads random MP3 files to all available memory in your rio. The RIO utility is required to interface with the RIO hardware. Special features of this tool include the ability to recursively scan your music archive directories, specify search strings and add to what's already loaded.
gamp is an ncurses-based console MP3 frontend for any sajber-jukebox compatible player, including mpg123 and amp. gamp was written to have most of the functionality of other X-based MP3 players. It includes an excellent playlist editor with support for loading and saving m3u playlists, as well as a fully functional player.
The GlobeCom Jukebox is a music jukebox with integrated CDDB-aware ripping and groupware functionality. It is completely configurable from the Web interface, seamlessly integrates ripping from CD to encoded MP3, and supports grouping of songs, peak adjustment, account management for access, streaming of jukebox or single song, themability, album handling, and online help.
