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.
CDDBD.sh is a shellscript speaking the CDDB Protocol version 1 without enhancements and read only. CDDBD.sh allows to query a local database on a filesystem that was filled with entries using such programs like xmcd or kscd. CDDBD.sh was developed to be used in a local or home network and not to serve a WAN.
mp3album.pl is a tool to automatically create album lists from a batch of mp3 files including ID3v1, ID3v2.2 or ID3v2.3 information. It includes logic to split up all files in one directory into separate albums and generates a report file for each album. The reports are customizable through templates and can contain any information found in the ID3 tags. mp3album.pl lends itself very handy when creating an index of a directory containing several albums of music. As Perl currently lacks 'good' Unicode support, the Unicode strings in ID3v2.3 are not yet supported.
libmidixx is a C++ library to manipulate MIDI sequences. It is intended for a multimedia application that handles playback, recording, and editing of MIDI sequences, though the current version just implements playback only. libmidixx supports OSS, ALSA, and serial (tty) MIDI ports, and also comes with a user-space sequencer implementation, which does a fair job on a lightly-loaded machine.
