mserv - Jukebox-style music server for unix-like systems
||OpenMandriva Contrib Release x86_64
Mserv is a jukebox-style music server designed to play mp3, ogg, etc. files
(configurable) based on ratings of users who are logged in to the system. Mserv
plays the music via your existing programs like mpg123 and ogg123 to either
your sound card (Stable release) or streamed to an Icecast 2 server (NEW!
Development release). Mserv is Free Software released under this license.
Mserv runs on a variety of UNIX platforms, including GNU/Linux and BSD
platforms. Mserv includes features such as searching, filtering, biased random
play, queuing, talking, on-line and off-line track editing, and a standardised
TCP protocol. This allows for a variety of interfaces including a built-in
telnet interface, a command line program for scripting and a Perl based web
Due to the standarised TCP protocol there are many 3rd-party clients available,
including desktop (both UNIX and Windows) graphical clients. There's even an
emacs plug-in (written by Lars Bjønnes) in lisp, and an infra-red controller
interface (written by David Brownlee)!
