Democratic Jukebox - your democratic music player
Ever wanted to listen to music with a larger group of people e.g. in your office? Who decides what to play? Make your music player democratic and give everyone the chance to promote their favourite song.
Jukebox provides a web interface to search your music library and vote for songs to be played. The more votes a song gets, the sooner you will listen to it.
At one point in your life your play queue might get empty. Don't worry, the jukebox will keep on playing. The playback system figures out who is online using the web interface or API and plays music to their liking.
Required system libraries
libshout3, libshout3-dev and python-dev are required to build the dependecy python-shout.
- Jukebox is available in english and german
- Jukebox uses Facebook, Twitter and Github for authentication (see django-social-auth for more authentication providers)
There is a public test server of Democratic Jukebox to try it out. Please note that the icecast server is limited to 10 listeners.
Thanks to Steffen Zieger for providing and managing the server.

Now it's time to configure the jukebox
