IRMP3 Client Tools (Submitted by Bryan Clingman)

From the README:
This code is licensed under the GPL.
The IRMP3 client tools on this page function to provide a remote monitoring interface to IRMP3. They use the mod_netctl module of IRMP3.
There are two tools:

  • irmp3_monitor: a GTK+/GNOME interface as seen in the screenshot above. irmp3_monitor displays the current song information and volume information as obtained from IRMP3. There is also a pop-up menu to do simple control actions.
  • irmp3_sdl_monitor: A similar SDL interface meant to be used as a front end in an entertainment center. This client is inspired by bosdl used by bossogg. It's currently in a very raw state, but it does function.

  • Written for irmp3 0.4.3pre7
  • From the README:

mod_mixer_save (Submitted by Marco Glatz)

  • Written for irmp3 0.4.3pre7
  • This module stores the settings of the volume, bass, treble and balance in a file and restores the settings at the next startup of IrMP3.

mod_playlist patch (Submitted by Marco Glatz)

  • Written for irmp3 0.4.3pre7
  • This patch applies a new command "playlist restart", so if you stop the player and execute a playlist restart, IrMP3 starts playing the last played song and continues with the playlist (Just like a normal play-button on your cd-player). Works with "loaddir" and "playlist load".

qmp (Submitted by Andre Merlin)

qmp is a set of PHP-scripts to set up a MP3 database (using MySQL). You can browse or search that database and create playlists. There is an interface to send playlists to irmp3 and do some basic control.
