This is a very clean interface for the xmms-Multimediaplayer, developed by new Puppy member DavidBell Smile

Screenshot:

You can get XMMS here:
http://puppyfiles.org/dotpupsde/dotpups/Multimedia/xmms-1.2.10-by-Dougal/
or here:
http://puppyfiles.org/dotpupsde/dotpups/Multimedia/xmms-1.2.10/

They differ concerning supported plugins and skins, I did not try out yet, if they can be combined in one folder (for example if kjofol works with Dougals XMMS, too).

More info about xmmsMusicBox in this thread:

Thanks David! Smile

Mark

Just a note. Most recent update is at the bottom of page 4 of the thread Mark linked. Instructions and limitations for use are about half way down page 3 of the same thread. Most important thing is that it will only accept a directory structure of

Library Folder
__>>Artist Folders
____>> Album Folders
______>> Music and Cover Art files

for the Music Library.

Enjoy. DB

How come the executable is encrypted ??

Speaking for rev only I learn from others scripts...

I don't know, think I used standard settings. Latest source is in the xmb4.tar.gz in the other thread. I didn't include the makefile because it doesn't seem to be portable. DB

I ran:
strip xmmsMusicBox (2.8 MB -> 2.2 MB)
upx xmmsMusicBox (2.2 MB -> 832 kb)


You can decompress with
upx -d xmmsMusicBox
using http://dotpups.de/dotpups/System_Utilities/upx.pup

Mmm, as I said it's in the other thread pointed at the top of the page. Link is

http://www.uploading.com/files/YDOCHYU2/xmb4.tar.gz.html

PS it's in C++ with wxWidgets

W A R N I N G. Mark found a problem with this (see next post). Use with caution. DB

U P D A T E. Think this is fixed now, but may be fragile with files less than one second long. DB

Update finishes off most functions and now has it synched up properly with xmms. Still not super-tidy but it's working well for me.

Hoping Mark will update the dotpup, but for those with it already installed just change the binary. There are instructions included in Readme_xmmsMusicBox.html.

Regards. DB

I found a instability:

if you delete entrys from the playlist and restart, it crashes:
Especially removing the first one is critical, it crashes your program immedeatly.

sh-3.00# ./xmmsMusicBox
Floating point exception

I must delete then:
/root/.xmms/xmms.m3u
and close xmms.
Only then your program starts again.

Can you try to solve that, before I upload a new dotpup?

Hmm I can't reproduce that, can you send a screenshot of the xmms playlist when it's about to crash? Wierd thing is I don't use any floats anywhere, but it may be in wxW libs. Earlier on I found that if XMB crashed sometimes it wouldn't always synch up with restart - I think I started and killed xmms to fix - but haven't seen that for some time.

I'll put a warning on the other post, and see if I can fix it in the meantime (plus two other small bugs I found). I may have to send you a debug version. Probably not today.

Is it possible it is getting stuck on a file less than one second long like the puppy bark? That could cause a divide by 0, easily fixed.

It's working on my other computer OK. DB

Mark I replaced with an update that fixes one potential error. If that's not it not sure where it would be. DB

Edit. In hindsite there is a couple of other places where files under one second would cause a problem, so it may not be fixed yet.

Good work Exclamation

Dotpup (1 MB):

By the way: the libxmms.so.1 symlink in /usr/lib is not needed on my system.

Many thanks for this proram, Mark
