Globcomm Jukebox Contributions
What is it?
Very simply the Jukebox is a daemon that is controlled through a web interface.
It allows one to play music files from a Linux box in jukebox fashion.
It can do many things such as handle mp3, wav, ogg files. It has a built in ripper,
Album and group support. (It can do a lot or a little, you decide which.)
The jukebox is written in php,c++,and perl.
It also utilizes the MySQL database.
The homepage for the Jukebox is on sorceforge:
If you want to actually use it make sure to use the cvs release.
(noone packages it on a regular basis.)
Current Work In Progress (for me at least)
I am no longer activly maintaining or devloping for the Gjukebox.
I have decided that my time would be better served working on: GreatBox
Finally finish my Small Remote Interface
Split analze.pl and setting of mp3 tags
Make script to set genre in db for songs that are in albums to genre of album
Make Interactive makegroup.pl script
As one of my final contributions I have packaged the Globcomm Jukebox into RPMS
for Redhat Fedora Core 4
Note: these packages rely on packages at FreshRPMS
I actually add freshrpms to my yum installation.

addmp3id3.pl to import.pl +ogg
Date: September 6 2002
This Patch addresses two main issues, the first is adding support
for ogg file imports. The second is to make the script a bit more
robust. (to add options, easier addition of other formats, comments)
Additionally it was suggested the since the script handles more than just
mp3s it should be renamed import.pl
Getpictures.pl Dieing on certain names
Date: December 5 2001
Woo Hoo, When running Getpictures.pl it would die on a varity of names

set the permissions correctly on the graphics files.
