The MediaPlayer for IPFire was build for all those who wanted to listen to their own music or a few radio- and music streams additionally.
The way MPFire operates, you first have to build up a title database, which means MPFire needs to scan the filesystem for MP3 files first and then tries to import the music into its database in order to convert the data in ID3-tags. During this procedure you can set up the start directory.
This is the control area, in addition, you can see the count of all titles in the database. From the left top to the right bottom there are the following functions available.
Here you can choose between 2 multiselect menus, to play either all titles from one or more artists or play all titles from one or more albums. For a multi selection, as usual, you have to push and hold the STRG button. Then press the Play button under the select box.
In this section search for albums, titles or artists, MPFire will only list selected songs in the play list.
See all available songs in the database here. Play the songs separately or add them to the current Playlist with+.
See all the songs that actually can be played. You canadd or delete the content of the playlist. If you want to listen again to the playlist maybe the songs from the last evening) push the play button (below the play list) again.
Here you can listen to some selected webstreams. If you find some more good webstreams, Linux compatible playlists please, dont hesitate to send us the addresses per e-mail. Thank You :-)
