Just flashed the Audrey with this great looking image http://www.prins.net/audrey/index.html
I mapped a windows drive and proceeded to play mp3s.
Open a file works fine, but not opening a .m3u. No biggie, except that I can't create playlists with the media player tool by adding a whole directory or even multiple files...kinda bothersome ! Is there a workaround ?
I don't do more myself with mp3 then play an occasional stream on the internet, so I don't exactly understand the problem. However I have a small QNX program available that builds playlists and it allows to Add File, Add Directory, Randomize, Remove and Save. Maybe that's what you need. Let me know what happens.
What I'm trying to do is stream mp3s from my w2k server. I've mounted the drive and I can select a file and stream, but I'd like to be able to open a directory or a .m3u so that I don't need to open each file when the previous one has finished playing.
Is that playlist creator already in jukebox, sorry if I missed it.
found this on your site:
"Press Shift and download it here. Place the file in /nto/photon/bin. Don't forget chmod +x and cmp"
I'm so clueless in Unix/Qnx that I'm not sure what you mean by chmod +x and cmp !
Heck I don't even know how to navigate in a tree and delete a file with pterm. Fortunately, your GUI file explorer helps with that !
Assuming you get the file phplaylist in /nto/photon/bin you have to do this command from the prompt to make the file executable:
chmod +x /nto/photon/bin/phplaylist
Next you can run it from the prompt:
To save "disk" space you can change dir as follows:
and type: cmp phplaylist (and press enter). You will see the file will be compressed but you continue to run it with the previous command.
Later you can add "Playlist Maker" to shelf or the wm.menu file to start the program from a menu instead of the prompt.
If you have any questions in general use "search" on this BBS and type in any words/issues you want to learn more about and read the posts. That's how I learned everything I know.
Thanks, I'll try that.
Is there a way that playlist maker could be linked from photon somehow ?
I'm pretty familiar with the board and its search function but hadn't found any real explanation of the unix prompts, probably because it's obvious to most hackers here ! I've also learnt a lot here but I surely will never learn enough to come up with a great qnx image like jukebox !
Yes, you could keep the file on your share and do this command:
ln -s /sharename/phplaylist /nto/photon/bin/phplaylist
Each time you start the share the link will be there too.
Or you can start the program direct from your share and you will need no link.
Try again to chmod as follows, assuming you have the file on a share. Go in your Audrey to the shell prompt in terminal as root and type and enter the following command(the share must be active):
chmod +x /<yoursharename>/phplaylist (chmod(space)+x(space)(remainder without spaces)
If the file is somewhere else in Audrey, adjust the line accordingly. After enter all that should happen is you get the prompt back, no warnings or whatever else. If you don't get just the prompt back your command line is wrong and you should act on that and do it again right.
Please try and let me know if it works now.
You might want to check out PhJuke, which can read M3U and Media Jukebox playlists. You can edit playlists on the Audrey and save them in M3U format. It also supports Ogg Vorbis and does a better job than the standard QNX playback tools of playing from a remote filesystem without pauses or clicks.
In this thread we are discussing at this point the installation of Playlist Maker, as an addition to the features that come already with the MediaPlayer. It's simple and self explanatory and allows playing mp3 files in different ways. PhJuke is more sophisticated software for more advanced users.
My previous answer has more than nice words alone. I mean what I wrote and I just can't understand your reply. "Insanely difficult routines"? I was trying to explain someone else how to do a chmod in this thread.
I found the documentaion lacking (non existant) The install calls for the use of zcat something that is not on the audrey and i was unable to locate using goodle. I tried installing it by just graping the 3 files but there is no nfomration where to place each file. So yes it's is far more difficult to install this program then it shouldbe.
