Please read the full description, especially the NOTE at the bottom.
This is a port of the XMMS2 music player server for Android, rejoice!
* Client-server model
- Multiple interfaces (see below)
* Powerful media library
- clients can perform powerful queries using Collections.
* Gapless playback
* Cover art extraction
File format support:
mp3, ogg, opus, flac, aac/mp4, mpc, wav, aif, caf, paf, au, various module formats such as xm, it, s3m and many more.
Tag support for all of these is included. More formats such as SID, wma, monkey audio, and various others are on their way in the future.
NOTE that some formats such as the modules require more CPU time and so might be draining the battery a little quicker and on low end devices playback might sometimes be choppy if the system is under heavy load (still mostly works fine on my Samsung Galaxy 3 (3, not s3 :)).
Current list of other plugins:
* Listen to streams over the internet using *curl* and *icymetaint* which is used to read metadata updates from the stream. NOTE: Stream may be choppy with bad connection, currently recommended to use only with WIFI.
Plugins coming soon:
* Import various playlist formats such as cue, pls and m3u
* Proper buffering plugin
Big Thanks to the XMMS2 development team and everyone who contributed. Special thanks to Daniel Sheeler for the support and assistance on this port.
NOTE: This application is a *service* only and does NOT have a user interface packaged (yet anyway). You will need to install a *client* application to to act as an interface for this service. Reasons for this split include
1. Music won't stop if the interface happens to crash,
2. Anyone can write an interface and the users can choose between all the compatible interfaces,
3. Interfaces are not tied to and do not require this service to be installed on the device, instead they can be used as a remote control of sorts to control another XMMS2 instance anywhere on the network. This service is only needed to play the music on the device itself.
However, since this is still under heavy development, there is no guarantee that all clients will provide full access to all of the features of this service.
Pure Java client library and documentation are under way for no cost or strings of any kind.
