Rip is a commandline-based Perl script which rips Compact Disc tracks to either Motion Picture Expert Group Layer 3 (MP3) files, Ogg Vorbis files, or FLAC files without user intervention between the steps of ripping. It supports cdparanoia and cdda2wav for ripping, BladeEnc, LAME, notLAME, and GOGO for WAV to MP3 encoding, oggenc for WAV to Ogg Vorbis encoding/tagging, FLAC for WAV to flac encoding. In addition, it supports CDDB for automatic renaming of files and MP3::Info for MP3 tagging.
rmp3 is a receiver for the rmp3 broadcast protocol. This protocol uses teletext data transmitted in the VBI (vertical blanking interval) of TV transmissions to broadcast MP3 files. It is compatible with RadioMP3 and the German MegaRadio. You can listen to the audio stream, save the received files, or both.
sTaLMP3Box is a complete control program for a stand-alone MP3 player jukebox computer running under Linux, which uses a HD44780-compatible LCD display connected to the parallel port instead of a monitor. Its main function is playing MP3s and/or Ogg Vorbis files. It features a playlist with full edition functions, has a integrated file manager to manage your songs, shows ID3 info and Ogg Vorbis info, disc statistics, mounts CD-ROMs, resuming, it has almost everything you need for building your own jukebox. On its Web site there are complete building instructions for the hardware part of the project and installation instructions for the software part.
Shmplayer executes a single instance of mplayer in the background and controls it through a FIFO. It supports many of the features you'll find in XMMS and it is easily extendible. However, unlike XMMS, shmplayer doesn't require an X server to be active. You can even use it from a remote shell. Shmplayer has also some unique features like "jgrep" that lets you jump to the first "grepped" match of the playlist.
skiTunes is a fast, extensible alternative to iTunes. It can use Apple Quicktime, VLC, MPlayer, LAME, and cdrecord. It differs from Apple's offering in that it is written in Cocoa and uses native widgets, as well as supporting formats iTunes doesn't, such as OGG and WMA. Using native widgets will allow it to automatically match the rest of the OS when a theme is applied, unlike iTunes, which requires hacking in order to make it match. It will also offer a skinnable "mini- mode".
somaplayer is music player for MP3, Ogg, wav, audio CDs, MP3 streams, and Ogg streams. It is able to use the appropriate sound drivers or demons or to stream directly to an Icecast server (Icecast2 or SHOUTcast) or to encode in MP3 and Ogg Vorbis. It also acts as a sound daemon that is able to accept connections from other somaplayers or any other sound player (xmms, mpg123, and others) thanks to a special wrapper.
stream-db is a database-enabled version of streamcast, an MP3 file streamer for icecast/shoutcast servers. stream-db uses a database for the backend instead of perl data structures. The database holds song information, play queues, event logs and request logs. The aim the project is to allow people to create their own streaming media stations, with users, requests, song histories, and playlists and other such fun things.
streamiumd aims to be a simple-to-use, yet feature-rich daemon that runs on a server containing MP3s and M3U (playlist) files. It requires very little to get it running (Perl and MP3::Info), runs fast even on old machines, and allows your MP3 collection to be browsed from your Philips Streamium (tm) MC-i250 or MC-i200. It can serve to multiple devices simultaneously, has its own built-in HTTP daemon, can read HTTP URLs for Internet radio from M3U files, and can run on whatever port you choose.
