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.
MP3SQL allows one to index MP3's with MP3Tags into an SQL databse such as MySQL. Also included is an example PHP3 script for searching the database. There is also an playlist add function and an great playscript that reads your playlist and if there is no entries it randomizes from all your mp3s.
mpegrec (and wavrec, which is bundled with this program) provide direct-to-disk recording of wav and mp3 files from your sound card. 'lame' is required for mpegrec to encode audio on-the-fly to mp3. mpegrec is a simple, multithreaded (and multi-buffering) C application. It has been tested on a dual PII-450 running Linux Mandrake 7.0 with a Soundblaster PCI128 and works well capturing audio at 44.1kHz stereo directly to a 192kb mp3 file. The commandline interface is simple and allows recording for a specified number of seconds, or until Control-C is hit.
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.
MP3html is a utility for generating listings of MP3 files based on their ID3 tags and information such as bitrate, duration, and file size. Because it makes use of template files and is script-friendly, it can easily be used to create just about any kind of list you can think of, but its most common use is creating HTML lists for Web pages.
Mp3Make is a program that automates the ripping and encoding of CD audio to mp3 files. Since the programs commonly used in linux to do this are seperate, it made sense to make a glue program to make life easier. This is supplemented by downloading a cd track list from a cddb server, and using that to name the files being created.
