At the time, I looked around at other Linux jukebox programs, and none of them really did exactly what I wanted. Either they had user interfaces that I didn't like, or they were far too complicated to install. Among other things, they all seem to rely heavily on MySQL.
* Web-based user interface;
* Hierarchical display of bands, albums, and tracks, including album cover artwork (if present);
* Easy to select a particular track or an entire album for playback;
* When you haven't explicitly selected songs for playback, they are chosen randomly from amongst your entire collection;
* Easy to tell it ``never play this song again'';
* Can use any command-line program for playback;
* Can also use XMMS for playback;
* If you use XMMS, then you get Icecast broadcasts for free, via the Oddcast DSP plugin;
* Navigation hyperlinks on everything;
* Automatically cross-references bands with compilation albums on which they appear;
* Gets album and song names from FreeDB/CDDB instead of from the MP3 files themselves, bypassing the 30-character limit of ID3v1 (since at the time that I wrote this, ID3v2 was still almost entirely unsupported);
* Doesn't use SQL.
System Requirements:No special requirements.
