For CJK people, good news... We have player that display CJK characters correctly.

I compiled beep-media-player (BMP). However, the decoder in the player use floating point algorithm. This used almost 100% CPU in my C860 (with all visualization, etc switched off).

Fortunately, BMP can use XMMS plugins. That means you can use the integer algorithm plugin in XMMS (such as XMMS mad plugin). I splited it into a number of ipks for easy installation.

1. BMP program
Install this ipk Attached File  bmp_0.9.7_armv5tel.ipk ( 739.79K ) Number of downloads: 64


2. Plugins
2.1 MP3 decoder (required if you are going to listen MP3s)
There are 2 options. You should only install one of the two.
1. Floating point decoder:
Attached File  bmp_plugin_mp3_0.9.7_armv5tel.ipk ( 89.65K ) Number of downloads: 43

2. Integer decoder from XMMS. No dependency on XMMS (i.e., you can remove XMMS):
Attached File  bmp_plugin_mad_0.9.7_armv5tel.ipk ( 19.68K ) Number of downloads: 56
(xmms-mad 0.8 from sourceforge.net and ported to BMP)

2.2 Ogg decoder (required if you are going to listen OGGs)
Two options again. You should only install one of the two.
1. Floating point decoder (you need to install libogg and libvorbis):
Attached File  bmp_plugin_vorbis_0.9.7_armv5tel.ipk ( 38.72K ) Number of downloads: 32

Attached File  libogg_1.1.2_armv5tel.ipk ( 8.97K ) Number of downloads: 30

Attached File  libvorbis_1.1.0_armv5tel.ipk ( 197.85K ) Number of downloads: 39

2. Integer decoder from XMMS. No dependency on XMMS (i.e., you can remove XMMS):
Attached File  bmp_plugin_tremor_0.9.7_armv5tel.ipk ( 12.32K ) Number of downloads: 39
(compiled for BMP)

2.3 CD Audio (required if you are going to listen CD?!):
Attached File  bmp_cdaudio_0.9.7_armv5tel.ipk ( 22.56K ) Number of downloads: 34


2.4 WAV decoder (required if you are going to listen WAV):
Attached File  bmp_plugin_wav_0.9.7_armv5tel.ipk ( 5.24K ) Number of downloads: 36


MAD and Tremor plugin gives a very good performance and I suggest you to use these two plugins instead of their floating point counterparts.

Enjoy...

Great!

I mirrored the packages here:
http://mail.pdaxrom.org/contrib/cs_jacky/

perhaps leave a message here if you download the packages from the feed, so that cs_jacky knows he hasn't compiled it for nothing wink.gif

Thanks for this timely app! With the rising popularity of pdaXrom among CJK users it doesn't really make sense to have something as basic as a music player without CJK support. smile.gif

Keep up the great work!

I found that the XMMS MAD plugin has a bug so that XMMS/BMP will skip the first second of the song. Anyone know any work around?
Furthermore, integer decoders give you very good system performance but it will crash you BMP if you view the id3 details.

fixed decoding bug - id3v2 frames could cause the decoder to skip the first few seconds of a file, Now it's completeley gapless (if used with xmms-crossfade).

Thanks pgas for your information.

In fact, I checked my Gentoo and found that xmms-mad 0.8 works fine in my desktop. So, I tried to compile it for Zaurus. It works fine!

I updated bmp_plugin_mad_0.9.7_armv5tel.ipk. Now, you should have your back the few seconds... wink.gif

P.S. I think it can also fix the same problem in XMMS. What you need to do is to replace the libxmmsmad.so in /usr/lib/xmms/Input with the one in my ipk.

I also compiled bmp-doclet which can add a control in your tray.

To install it, you need to do...
1. install this ipk
Attached File  bmp_docklet_1.3_armv5tel.ipk ( 12.75K ) Number of downloads: 45


2. start BMP and go to preference -> General. Enable "Doclet Plugin"

You should find an icon in your system tray. Click on this icon to hide/show BMP. Right click to pop up menu for frequently used command. I think it is very useful.

Pgas would you mind to mirror this ipk as well?

Enjoy...

No I don't mind.

In fact if you see something missing, something I should do,
don't hesitate to pm or mail me.

I do read the forum, but having remainders is not a bad thing.

Thanks to the help from sashz. I compiled xmms-tremor for BMP. It is not working without crash!

I also ported xmms-mad to BMP. You can view and edit ID3 of your MP3 files now.

Now, I repacked the MP3 and OGG decoder plugins. All you need to do is to uninstall MP3 and OGG ipk and install the new one.

I don't think we can put it to Zaurus at the moment. I requires GTK+2.8, etc which are not available in pdaXrom.

What do you mean by "bmp mixer doesn't work"? I don't find any "bmp mixer" in BMP.
