|When in doubt, blame it on the beer.|
..I would surely forget it one day... or so my mother used to tell me... ;-)
And I guess she was right, 'cause when I released 0.3, I totally forgot to update this site... Well, anyway: version 0.3 is out! It adds a lot of code rewrites as well as a panel to control all basic functions of your deck (play, rwnd etc). Let me know what you think!
10/10/2002 - Thank you, xmms.org ;-)
Only a few hours after posting the previous news item, I got a very nice mail from the people at xmms.org... seems they'd been having some trouble with their forums... and they told me I smell like roses... *sigh*
Now isn't that nice? ;-)
10/09/2002 - Damn you, xmms.org!
I just don't get it... I can't seem to get this plugin to be added on xmms.org... I posted in their forum, but no reaction whatsoever. Perhaps I smell bad... :-((
Anybody know the proper procedure?
In other news: I've dumped my laptop for sending IR signals, and bought a Matrix Irda transmitter which connects directly to my mainboard... pretty nifty, and works like a charm. :-) Further more I'm currently adding some more functionality to the plugin: I've added a status bar, and I'm working on buttons to control basic functions of your deck (play, stop, eject).
09/06/2002 - mdtitle-0.2a released!
This new version adds freedb support, which enables the plugin to guess the album title from the playlist contents. Even less user-typing required! ;-)
09/04/2002 - We have a website!
OK, I've built something that looks like a website... ;-)
That's the best I can say for it, 'cause I know it looks crappy as hell... Hey, I'm a hacker, not a web designer! So, if someone is feeling the creative vibe and you think you can improve this (shouldn't be much of a challenge): please let me know!
I own a Sony MDS-JE330 deck and a Sharp MD-MT80 portable unit.
When recording MP3's I had two problems:
It also requires you to type in all track titles. Being a lazy nerd at heart I decided there must be an easier way to do this. And there was:
When recording from xmms, all track names are allready know, so why not make a plugin for xmms which sends the track names while recording? And while we're at it, why not send track marks as well? And so MDTitle was born.
MDTitle uses any form of lirc compatible hardware to send infrared signals to modern Sony decks. That's the catch right now: it only works with Sony decks. Why? Because I only have a Sony deck, and can't test it with other brands... Info about how to control other brands of decks would be most welcome.
It can be downloaded here.
Older versions are available from Sourceforge.
To access CVS type:
cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/mdtitle login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/mdtitle co mdtitle
This should get you the very latest (and very unstable) version of mdtitle. Nightwhistler@users.sourceforge.net.
