Description:

BoomBox is an audio player with built-in database for easy browsing of local music files. It has no playlist, instead it simply plays songs from current search results. These queries can be saved to give you something like "dynamic playlists". It also has support for queing up songs to be played, replacing much of the need for a playlist.
If you keep your music files well organised, or if you want to listen to songs just downloaded to a temporary folder, you can use the filesystem view (powered by the KIO library from KDE). BoomBox can also keep track of internet radio stations for you. And it can edit id3 tags in a very convenient way. And it can be controlled from another program using MPRIS2.
It does not play video and has no equaliser.
Audio players are a matter of taste, maybe this one suits you?

Full source code available from:
git clone git://boombox.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/boombox/boombox




Changelog:

2014-01-29, version 0.4.4:
Bug fix release.
- Optimization: use kdeinit for faster app startup
- Alternating background colors in filesystem view.
- Bug fix: now showing track length and current position correctly on mpris2 remote control apps.

2012-12-25, version 0.4.3:
Bug fix release.
- Bug fix: application crash at startup if shuffle was active when you quit before.
- Bug fix: should not be able to edit or enqueue albums in resultview.

2012-10-27, version 0.4.2:
Bug fix release.
- Fix for loading a new song when clicking "play" first thing after application startup, wasn't working with vlc and gStreamer phonon backends.
- Fix for automatically playing next song in playlist when using gStreamer phonon backend.
- Only update "current song" label once playback of next song actually starts, before this fix it was updated a few seconds before.
- Fix 15-20 second delay in startup if kde-telepathy is installed, was causing a dbus-deadlock with the kded daemon.
- Remove icons on song position and volume sliders in main user interface, looks cleaner.

2012-01-27, version 0.4.1:
Bug fix release.
- The "Now Playing" plasma applet now supports Mpris2 dbus interface so I could finally test support for this in BoomBox. Found a couple of issues and fixed those.
- I switched to a dark colour theme and found two places where it was always showing text in black colour. Fixed to follow system palette.

Besides those small problems BoomBox is still working just fine, no problems with the xine and GStreamer phonon backends. VLC backend seems to have issues.. many annoying behaviors when using that.

2011-04-01, version 0.4:
New release with minor fixes:
- Added a Help entry to the BoomBox menu and wrote documentation.
- Added titles to the toolbars, shown when right-clicking on a dockwidget.
- Renamed some actions to sound better
- Added the actions for the collection tab to the shortcuts editor
- Changed the function of "New Playlist" now saves current settings under new name instead of starting a new blank one.
- Compile fix for ubuntu 10.04

This is not a joke!


2011-03-25, version 0.4rc1:
Finally I have something good enough for a release! Took some two years... but during those two years I have also quite happily used it full time for myself.
So now I'm hoping to get some feedback on how this works for everybody else, hopefully it can reach more people thanks to the excellent build service that opensuse provides! Also big thanks to lubos lunak for the nice kde-obs-generator!
Please comment below for any feedback/questions, much appreciated! There is no documentation yet, hoping to have time for that soon (and also hoping that it isn't really needed!)

2009-05-03:
Development on a complete rewrite has started, today I pushed this work into a git repo on the sourceforge project space. Feel free to try it, but remember that it is work in progress. Not yet suitable for everyday usage. Added a screenshot of this new version as a teaser! :)
The rewrite uses KDE4 libraries, phonon, sqlite and taglib.

0.3.1:
Small bugfix release.

0.3:
So... it's been over a year since last release. Sorry for that. But at least now a much improved release is available. Most important changes:

changed to sqlite 3. This means you will need to remove the old database file ($HOME/.boombox/music.db) before starting the new version.

Added tag editing. Quite nice to use, imo.

Added playlist support. Uses a combobox in the main window.

Switched to taglib - Cleaner and makes mp3s get length field filled out.

Lots of fixes with character encodings. Should work now.

General cleanup and restrucuring of alot of code.

Now able to read pls files.

Added tooltips to display meta info in playlist.

Fixed the equalizer. Can actually be used now... =)

Small fixes
Scroll to song playing when pressing "Add & play"
Make browser refresh after db update.
Make mainbar buttons toggle.
Use path in playlists, making them work through db updates.
Fix esc on button in browser.
Show video window when playing video, keep track of user's setting.
URLs should have all their fields filled out.
Install a .desktop file.
use fromUtf8 in bbbackend, xine_get_meta_info

Hope you enjoy it! All feedback very welcome!

 How to compile?

Looks nice but how to compile it?
The source file seems incomplete.

Hope it works since I was looking something like the winamp library for KDE that doesn't depend on arts.

Oops, sorry I didn't know about cmake!
Anyway I downloaded and run it but seems that something didn't go well because when I run boombox I get the following errors:
QDateTime::fromString: Parameter out of range
database error: table music already exists
database error: table playlist already exists
database error: table music already exists
database error: table playlist already exists

and the windows that opens has only equalizer controls.

This could also be because I did my first compilation with cmake. Can you post some instructions?
Thanks

Those errormessages are normal, will do something about them for the next release.

Page has been updated with instructions today, hopefully the instuctions should be enough for normally gifted people. =)

If anyone here wants to help me create an rpm or deb that would be welcome.

Of course :)
The only thing was that I had to change the file cmake_install.cmake in src directory to write the full path of the executables (ie /home/user/boombox/src/boombox and /home/user/boombox/src/boomboxctl) because make install couldn't find them otherwise. But these 2 files and the icons are copied correctly to /usr/local/ dir.

I had the same problem, but fixed it by running "make install" in the src and pics dirs.
I use /usr as a prefix (running "cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:path=/usr ."), maybe it's the reason why I get the icons.

OOOPS... =)

My bad, it tries to load the icons from /usr/share/boombox.... no matter where you install it. This will be fixed in a bugfix release soon to come, I'm trying to spend as much time I can on the project now to get a better release. Didn't think so many would be interested in yet another music app...

I've moved the files to /usr/ and now it works but when I try to update the database I get a segmentation fault without anything else. If I add music to playlist it works but not the database!

Have you tried reinstalling it with prefix /usr instead of the default /usr/local ?

As I said, I installed it to /usr/ to make it work but the segmantation fault I get is something different.

after trying every single playlist plugin for noatun and the very promising amarok, I'd say this is a really nice interface.

by the way, is that kicker I'm seeing on the right side of the screen? or some ultramodified gkrellm theme? Could you give me some hint on that?

It's in /usr/lib/qt3 (afair), but it really ought to be able to find it itself...

Does boombox use the standard KDE admin dir, or does it carry it's own?

You could try adding "#include <math.h> to the top of bbanimator.cpp or possibly main.cpp.

I'm no coder and haven't had this problem, so I don't know if it would help, but i still believe it would make some kind of difference.

I've also heard humors about having to include stdlib.h, but I'm not sure about it.

Please post here if when you get it to work and let us know what you did :)

#include should help.

This is better than including math.h because your are not mixing c and c++ headers

 Almost perfect

This version compiles and works ok, the database can be updated and the only problem seems to be that if you select and artist and then a song, the artists list only displays that particular artist and noone else. You have to click on an empty field from the albums group in order for the whole artist list to appear again.

I must say that this app is very good and probably after another 2 or 3 revisions will be my default player. Thanks

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
