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 client. 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)!
