LiMpOo is a multimedia player platform based on a Linux system using a Perl engine. It features playback of MP3 files (with playlists), CD audio (with CDDB lookup), and support for encoding, LCD, and IR. It uses MySQL for speed improvements. A PHP front-end helps to maintain all playlists.
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.
The Music Control Center can help you organize your existing sound file collection and walk you through the process of ripping backup copies of your CDs, moving the newly-created sound files to the correct location, and updating the database appropriately. It allows you to create playlists on-the-fly, save them, and load them for playback at a later date. You can search your collection by artist, album title, label, producer, song title, and year released.
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.
