README FOR PSYMP3 2-CURRENT =========================== 1. Overview 2. System Requirements 3. Notes =========================== 1. OVERVIEW PsyMP3 is a simplistic audio media player with a flashy Fourier transform. PsyMP3 2.x is a radical departure from the code of the 1.x series. Whereas 1.x was written in FreeBASIC, 2.x is written in C++, and is portable! The "2-CURRENT" version tag represents the "bleeding edge" of development. End users shouldn't be using this; please use the last version tagged as -RELEASE. -CURRENT means "This is what I am working on, in whatever state it happens to be in, complete or not." You can reach me at <firstname.lastname@example.org>. 2. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS Windows NT: NT 4.0 for i386 or later, Windows 2000 recommended. Minimum CPU isn't known currently, 1GHz Pentium III is my current guess 64MB of RAM DirectDraw-accelerated drivers help. (Note: Itanium not officially supported due to poor WOW64 emulator performance.) Windows x64: Windows XP Professional x64 Service Pack 2 or later, Windows 7 recommended. Any CPU compatible with your OS 96MB of RAM Linux, *BSD, Solaris: glibc-2.3 or later, FreeBSD 6, NetBSD 4, or OpenBSD 3.5 or later recommended. Older releases may or may not work; please email your results! X11 is recommended, or an SDL compiled to use some other graphics output. POSIX threads. On Linux, NTPL is recommended (requires kernel 2.6.9 or later) The following dependencies are required: SDL 1.2.13 or later mpg123-1.8 or later taglib-1.6 or later libvisual-0.4 or later libvorbis libogg FreeType 2.4 or later SDL_ttf 1.2 or later SDL_gfx 2.0 or later zlib-1.2.3 or later Mac OS X: Not officially supported, but building the dependencies for Linux/BSD with MacPorts might work. 3. USAGE Pass the paths to the MP3s or Ogg Vorbis files to be played as program arguments. Audio files will be played in the order they are passed on the command line. All user interaction, aside from clicking the 'close' button for the window, is done via the keyboard. Keys and what they do: * ESC and Q: Quit PsyMP3. * Space: Pause (or resume) playback. * R: Restart the current track from the beginning * N: Seek to the next track. * P: Seek to the previous track. 4. NOTES At this time, PsyMP3 2.x is incomplete. There's very little UI code, and most features are missing at this time. If you are a developer, and are interested in helping me, please email me above. If you are an end user and you don't like this program, feel free to use something else, and check back later for improvements Unicode ID3 tags are supported. Please replace the included 'vera.ttf' with a different font file containing the Unicode glpyhs you desire. Advanced text layout is not supported (e.g. connected Arabic characters.)
