Noddy jukebox for raspberry pi (also works on a mac)
The kids made me build this.
"Here's how a jukebox works, Daddy: you press some numbers and it plays songs. Then you write all the songs down in a book, ok?"
So, this is a simple thing where you press some numbers and it plays some songs. I haven't written them down yet.
It requires libvlc.
$ python juke.py music_folder
To play a song type the two digit album_id and then the two digit song_id. You can play the whole album by using 00 as the song_id. Type a full-stop '.' to stop playing or to erase a number. Type 'q' to quit.
the music folder
The music folder needs to be structured as follows:
- [album_id] album name/
- [song_id] song name.[mp3|mp4]
- 50 Some Album/
- 01 First Song.mp3
- 02 Secong Song.mp3
5001 would play First Song and 5002 Second Song and 5000 The whole album. See, easy?
Clearly it only supports 100 albums (00-99)
optional LCD display
If the environment variable USE_LCD is set, the status output is written to the serial port /dev/ttyAMA0 - which is where I've attached a serial two character LCD display to the Raspberry PI.
