LogJam vs. beep [Jul. 13th, 2005|08:42 pm]


[Current Music |õƒ]

I’m running LogJam 4.4.1 under Debian. Everything is great, except it seems to have trouble detecting music from Beep Media Player (ver 0.9.7). It’s set to use logjam-xmms-client, and the track names show up as some unicode gibberish.

Anyone have suggestions? If it’s not already obvious, I’m a complete n00b to all this.

right now, since I dont wanna download 20 mb worth of dev dependencies (56k) I just install xmms.
Since both are basically the same player at the core, they still make many of the same calls, mostly for compatibility with xmms and the plugins (all that has to be done with most plugins is some gtk related changes)
so xmms just sits there on disk while the parts of programs that need xms think it's playing, etc.

I still dont know why people like xmms still the gtk1 look is realy ugly :/

Yeah, gtk1 is depressing. That's why I switched from xmms, too

A temp solution I did was to install the bmp-infopipe plugin.

Then i set logjam to call this script to detect music:

BMP_TITLE=`grep -i title /tmp/xmms-info`
echo ${BMP_TITLE:7}

This grabs the title from the pipe and strips the first 7 chars off(The text "Title: ").
