Webplay creates, from a collection of MP3s and Ogg Vorbis files (indexed from a directory or MySQL/PostgreSQL database), a Web-based jukebox with support for multiple independent streams. If Lame/oggenc are available, it can change the bitrate or codec of a file in real time to a selectable value. Each user controls their stream via a Web interface and can skip back, forward, or to a specific track; increment or decrement the bitrate; and check the current playlist, song, or bitrate. Playlists can be looped, randomized, played locally on the webserver, edited, deleted, reused, or renamed.

Release Notes: This release adds support for the Ogg Vorbis codec. Streams can be either MP3 or Ogg Vorbis at a selectable codec and bitrate, and, just as importantly, the source files can be any combination of MP3s and Ogg Vorbis. The Java client also gains file selection via regexes.
Release Notes: A fix for a very old and irritating bug involving browser mistargeting (a.k.a. "browser funny business"), several performance tweaks for slow machines, and the addition of commandline arguments to the Java client for specifying username/password/URL.
Release Notes: This release adds a Java frontend (applet or standalone) to the original Java script playlist editor, and relicenses the package under the BSD license.
