PhJuke - Music Jukebox for Photon
Frequently Asked Questions
Absolutely! This is discussed in the Directory Browsing and PHJ Files section of the documentation.
The playback engines PhJuke uses doen't support jumping around to different places in a track. I plan to add support for one that does, at which point you'll be able to drag the slider.
See the instructions on the Downloads page.
By default, PhJuke is configured to play files from a Windows fileserver. If you're using a different OS (or your files are local on your QNX system) you'll need to edit the $HOME/.phjuke file (on an Audrey this is usually just /.phjuke) and change the fs-charset setting so it has the same value as the data-charset setting. In most cases you'll want a value of ISO-8859-1.
If your playlist manager writes absolute paths to its M3U files, such as D:\foo\bar\song.mp3, you can use PhJuke's directory mapping feature to compensate. With PhJuke not running, add one line to your preferences file ($HOME/.phjuke) for each remote-mounted directory. For example, if you have D:\Foo\Bar mounted on the Audrey as /music, you'd add:map-dir d:/foo/bar/=/music/Note that PhJuke uses forward slashes, not backslashes, even on Windows paths, and that the mapping is case-insensitive.
Yes! The binary distribution includes an Ogg Vorbis decoder.
This is because programs launched from the browser are run using restricted access permissions. There are two workarounds.
I'm not sure. It seems to be a slight incompatibility between the Photon libraries on the Audrey and the ones from the full QNX 6.0 distribution. I've tried a couple things to get rid of it, but no luck so far. The message appears to be completely harmless, so just try to ignore it. If you know how to get rid of it, please drop me a line.
This site is served from my home Linux box, and my bandwidth is very limited, so I'd rather keep things small, simple, and fast-loading. That, and I'm horrible at graphic design.
