JuK 2.2 - Jukebox and music manager for KDE

- An easy to use, playlist and metadata focused interface with several playlist types:

- Collection List where the entire database of music is shown and automatically updated based on folders the user has indicated contain their music collection

- Search Playlists that allow for powerful combinations of search criteria to produce dynamically updated playlists

- Dynamic Lists which are produced by using multiple selection in the playlist selector and are a union of two or more playlists

- Folder Playlists which represent a single folder in the file system and are updated automatically based on its contents

- History Playlist which stores a history of the what the user has played

- Play Queue, an enhancement of the popular Play Next funtionality of previous versions that enables a manegable upcoming queue of items to be played

- Player and tag editor for several audio formats:
- MP3 (MPEG Layer 3 Audio)
- Ogg Vorbis
- FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec)
- MPC (MusePack)

- Multiple audio output backends:
- aRts (Default)
- GStreamer 0.8
- aKode

- Inline search for quick filtering of the currently visible items

- MusicBrainz integration for file identification on over the internet

- File renamer that renames files based on the tag content
A powerful tag editor that works seemlessly with all supported music formats

- CD burning support via the popular K3b tool

- Visually attractive, but unobtrusive track announcements

- A Now Playing heads-up style title bar featuring the album cover, links to show more from the playing artist or album and a brief history of previously played items

- Cover art management via Google Image Search

- Random play including Album Random Play for randomly playing complete albums

JuK 2.2 is part of the recently released KDE 3.4 kdemultimedia package. JuK packages are distributed with basically all current Linux and many Unix distributions.


New in JuK 2.2 (KDE 3.4):

- "Now Playing" bar

- More from this aritst / album links

- Cover image support and manager

- Play Queue

- Easier to use file renamer dialog

- Album-based random play

- GStreamer backend updated to 0.8.x

- Direct aKode backend

The web page and wiki have also been updated with quite a bit of new content.

 Ignore "The"

 by mengle on: Mar 7 2004
Score 50%

What a great app! It works wonderfully with the 2000+ songs on my mp3 player. However, there's one little issue that really bugs me on it and I would guess it would pretty easy to change. Commonly the ID3 tags for the same band will be listed at, for example, both "Afghan Whigs" and "The Afghan Whigs" so that some of the songs are listed under "a" for "afghan" while the the rest are listed under "t" for "The". Is there anyway to have the program ignore the word "the"? It's much easier than chaning tall the ID3 tags.

The one caveat is that you'd probably is to only ignore the first occurence of "the" because any songs by the band called, "The The" might cause some problems.

It's a interesting observation. I only biuld the slack package. Juk web site is unreachable: you should go to multimedia.kde.org and suggest your idea in the mailing list.

"It's much easier than chaning tall the ID3 tags."

Actually, one of the nice things about Juk is that changing many ID3 tags at once really IS easy. Just search for versions with "The" in them, select them all, and rename their artist all at once.

To avoid this problem, if a song is by "The Band" I generally label them as "Band, The". It really is easy to do.

 no juk in fedora!

the kdemultimedia-3.2 package for fedora core doesn't include juk. so i think it would be nice to release juk also as a separate package (or to convince fedora to pack it in).

Well, talk to Redhat/Fedora developers (or, well, use another distro) -- they actually remove the mp3 support from the distribution.

 not enough

 by momosh on: Apr 26 2004

I was looking for a "natural" solution for my mp3 collection (almost 90gb of them). I'd had to be simple, mem economic and stable. After 1 whole month of testing all kinds of jukeboxes i finally came to this conclusions.

1) JuK can't handle large collections, its database method crashes after a while and you'll have to do the imput all over again (this being full albums)
2) The Shortcut for "open from folder" is a well done but JuK doesn'nt seem to remember it the next time you start it
3) Stability is far away

Those where the bad points..
Good ones.. this is the best prog around for the moment on linux (second would be Rhythmbox)

I would sugest implementing a new type of database system (and also cache system). And if you really wanna make my day, please implement album covers... there're a bunch of bad progs around that support them

Honestly if you're seeing crashes this isn't the place to report them -- please file bugs at bugs.kde.org.

That said there are people using JuK with stuff in the range of 90 GB without problems (though it is pretty memory hungry with that much music loaded).

As to stability -- there's only one crash report open at the moment and at least based on the feedback that I've gotten JuK has been pretty stable for most folks. It doesn't surprise me that you'd hit more issues with a very large collection, but that's precisely why you should be reporting them. ;-)

JUK looks fine, promise many possibilities. But I dont know how to use it. Just run it, open mp3 folder, files are showen in list, good.

But when I try klick on play button, nothing happend. Not only that I cant hear sound, I can (for example in XMMS), just no sound and no progres of playing the file. My conf. is SuSE 9.0, KDE 3.2.2, JUK 1.9 on i686 platform, fresh installation

I realy want to use JUK :-)

  • Thanks a lot for help, Filip

    This likely isn't a JuK issue, but an aRts issue (i.e. I wouldn't expect Kaboodle or Noatun to work either). Please check to make sure that everything's correct in the sound configuration area in KControl.

     More file formats

    How about adding more file formats, like WAV, AIFF etc.?
    If JuK would support these I could make it my fav media player.

    How do you like Plasma 5?
     The best KDE Desktop ever.
     Definitely a nice improvement.
     Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
     I do not like some of the changes.
     KDE is taking the wrong way.
     I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
     I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
