Mpserv is an architecture for playing MP3s distributed throughout a LAN or high-speed WAN. The core is the server which houses a database of song titles available through the network. Clients connect to this server and request songs to be played on the stereo connected to the server machine. The modular design allows for third party clients to be created with any interface. Included is a ripper/encoder for adding your music to the available database of titles. A sample client is also provided, written in perl/gtk.
Mserv is a jukebox-style music server designed to play MP3, Ogg, etc. (configurable) files based on ratings of users who are logged in to the system. It includes features such as searching, filtering, biased random play, queuing, talking, online and off-line track editing, and a standardised TCP protocol. This allows for a variety of interfaces including a built-in telnet interface, a command line program for scripting, a Perl-based Web client, and many 3rd-party GUI front ends.
MuSE is a user-friendly tool for network audio streaming, making life easier for independent free speech radio stations. It can play, mix, encode, and stream sound from and to the Internet in both MP3 and Ogg/Vorbis format to be listened by the majority of audio players. It can simultaneously mix up to 6 encoded audio channels plus a sound card input signal, sending the result to an Icecast/Shoutcast server. It offers GTK2, ncurses, and Carbon (OSX) interfaces for real-time operation and a full set of command line options.
napMan is an infobot that provides you with a real time glimpse into the current state of the worldwide network of nap servers that are based on either the closed source Napster protocol or the Open Source opennap protocol. It displays a list of all the nap servers and current statistics for each server (users, number of MP3 files, gigabytes), and provides the ability to ping individual servers and check the network lag time, a facility to save the list of servers and statistics to a file, and the ability to refresh statistics for individual servers or all the servers.
Paloma is a program to manage an SQL database of digital music files, and facilitate their retrieval and playback in interesting ways. It works with music files of any form -- MP3, Ogg Vorbis, MIDI... whatever you've got a player for. Paloma makes it easy to rip your entire CD collection and store it on your hard disk (or a collection of CD-Rs) for instant random access; playlists can then be generated using arbitrary SQL commands.
php-stream is a front end for the stream-db icecast/shoutcast MP3 file streamer. php-stream uses the same database backend for queues and logs as stream-db. Users will be able to make their own playlists of songs, and the system playlists will be the complete set of songs that make up an individual album. Full access control will be provided, to set limits on the number of songs and playlists a user can submit to the system. The aim the project is to allow people to create their own streaming media stations, with users, requests, song histories, and playlists.
Pimp3 is an mpg123 frontend that allows one to rate songs according to how much they are liked. Those that are rated higher are played more often. The automanagement feature automatically lowers a song's value if it is skipped, and raises a song's rating if it is selected to play twice in a row.
