I'm using my IOpener as a dedicated MP3 station. I'm playing the MP3s through a USB network adapter off of a shared drive on another computer. I'm running Win98SE.
I'm looking for a MP3 jukebox program that runs without skipping on the IOpener. A jukebox program needs to be able to organize music into groups based on albums, artists or both. Here is what I've found:
Winamp 2.x doesn't have any organizing capability. It just lets you play a playlist. Otherwise it works pretty well, but without a jukebox function I'm not happy with it.
Winamp 3 has a media library function which is very good, but it is far too slow to use on an Iopener (for example it takes over 3 minutes to select an artist from my collection)
Realjukebox 2 has a very good organizing capability and performs well on the Iopener, but it gets "stuck" every 20 minutes or so. Playback pauses during a track and only resumes if I click on the progress bar. It says it is playing the whole time, but it isn't. It will stay stuck for hours if I don't do anything. The computer and OS stays responsive, just the playback gets stuck.
Does anyone have any ideas for getting RealJukebox to work, or any other jukebox software for the Iopener? Besides Winamp 2.x, what are other people using to play MP3s? I'd like something that is full screen, too. Winamp, even with its double size option doesn't look as good or organize information as well as a real full-screen interface like RealJukebox or Muzicman (great program, but too slow to use on the iopener).
