mp3blaster 3.0 - interactive text-console mp3 player

Post by Bram » Fri, 21 Sep 2001 17:46:11



Hello,

I have released a new version of mp3blaster, version 3.0. Mp3blaster
is an interactive text-based program that plays various (mp3,wav,..) audio
files. It is one of the very few mp3 players for the text console that
allows full interactive control during playback. Another important feature
is the ease with which one can create and store playlists grouped by albums.

Important recent changes are:
-implemented 'previous track', and therefore switched to the first 3.0
 stable version since albeit all functions from 2.* now work.
-"--enable-newthreads" configure option auto-enables pth instead of pthreads
-more patches from Martijn van Buul for better 'newthreads' playback - please
 test! 'newthreads' is still beta.

You can download mp3blaster from these places:

ftp://mud.stack.nl/pub/mp3blaster/
ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/apps/sound/players/ (soon after this post)

1. mp3blaster 3.0p8 - interactive text-console mp3 player

Hello,

I have released a new version of mp3blaster, version 3.0p8. Mp3blaster
is an interactive text-based program that plays various (mp3,wav,..) audio
files. It is one of the very few mp3 players for the text console that
allows full interactive control during playback. Another important feature
is the ease with which one can create and store playlists grouped by albums.

Important recent changes are:
-OggVorbis support! 99% of the player's functionality works with this format.
 More info on this free codec: http://www.xiph.org/ogg/vorbis/
-Fixed wav playback
-sid files can be played back again - though no seeking/time display yet.
-SkipFrames keyword has changed; instead of skipping a number of frames,
 it now skips a number of seconds. Therefore, you have to lower your current
 setting a lot (divide by 100). The number of seconds it skips in an mp3 is
 not very accurate.
-Splay's '-d -' produces a WAV-file on stdout.
-missing trailing slashes in HTTP stream URL's are automagically added
-fixed colour highlighting of files in filemanager
-cleaned up autoconf/automake files to make better use of it; as a result,
 some configure options have been renamed.

Kind regards,
