Amarok Script

AmarokMPC is an Amarok script for synchronising the localy played music with an instance of the Music Player Daemon (MPD, http://www.musicpd.org).
This task and usecase is somewhat limited:
If you have the same music on different computers (e.g. mounted with nfs) and want to play the same music on both computers at the same time, then this script might help you.

Amarok 2.0 will get a Ampache service which seems to do the same stuff. Currently no development will be done on my side, you are free to take over.

The current playlist is transfered from Amarok to mpd and synchronised including events like play, stop, skip, pause. Technically it works by translating the local paths to the remote equivalents to handle different mount points.

This script comes in handy when changing places while listening to music. You can now listen to your Amarok as long as a server with MPD and a same set of music is around.

Short Usage:
Set server address in configure dialogue first and wait for the "connected to ..." message. Then you can use the context menu from the Amarok playlist to start/stop MPD. See README for more information.

initial release

2007.01.15 (0.11):

* check if tracks could be added to server, handle missing same as local tracks: skip locally
* menu for starting and stopping synchronisation, no need for starting/stopping skript for this
* menu for updating the mpd server
* interfere less with server, if we already stopped playing

 Hardy update

I updated to Ubuntu Hardy, and amarokMPC broke, giving an error on line 41, due to changes in python-XML. Apparently it interferes with some core python XML modules.

There's an easy enough fix though, you just reinstall the python-xml package, and they get put in something like /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/oldxml

Then edit amarokmpc.py and find line 41, which is

from xml.dom.ext.reader import Sax2

and add this as a new line just before that:

sys.path.append('/usr/lib/python%s/site-packages/oldxml' % sys.version[:3])

This lets the script know where to find the files. Hope this helps someone else!

No... it's not done because of my academic exams back then and after that I got a job to build a call center app, which I'm still working on, so basically it's deferred for me.

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.
