This be very good! Are you on it? Do you need admin access to the iMac, or do you have that already?

Mike (the instigator!) is doing the dirty work on the Mac side of things and has got it all setup nicely, he is going to setup ftp access so that updating things will be straightforward. I just turn up and complain about my half-baked php not working really.

iTunes has a feature that allows people with iPhones and iPod touches to look at the list of tracks and request songs remotely, if the computer has wifi capabilities. I think this would be a nice feature, but it also has the potential to start fights probably.

...oops, unless this is what you meant in the first place....?

Might there be a way round the copyright bollocks if there was a feature to wi-fi tracks from your own iPod onto the jukebox and play them?

Probably not, eh... but I think the idea itself has a lot of potential for creating more madness and mayhem.

Well I think the aim is to have this interface available rather than iTunes directly, so that everyone can access it and do some requesting. So basically stealing that idea from the ipods and phones and making it available to all browsers, with a bit more functionality.

Streaming from people's devices would still construe public performance while the cafe was open afaik, so that would probably not be enabled as it would be difficult to enforce the music licensing rules. It would also have the risk of some scallywag queueing up katy perry and causing the painful fiery demise of this whole Earth.

There's a shiny system here (http://www.playerpal.com/) for playing itunes songs remotely and this looks like exactly the kind of thing we need. There's a trial version available for free too.

Can you get working on the jukebox Mac? Then it could introduce tracks and read out messages. I had that when I ran an Icecast radio server - Radio Sisyphus - where the rock doesn't stop.

Hmm quite possibly, it says it will build on any unix system. A disembodied robotic voice intoning someone's name over and over could be a way of making them happy and motivated.

Also I fear that the rock has indeed stopped now. :cry:

Sorry for the delay folks, had a few deadlines. Anyway this thing is almost done, I just need to test some applescript and tidy up the dog's breakfast design. Also it now publishes the currently playing track to an xml feed in case that is ever useful.

On a different note has anyone thought about setting up the jukebox with a last.fm account? Keep stats of what the café listens to, add a little extra promotion for the artists played on there. Pointful or pointless.

At least it caches the scrobbles. Precious scrobbles.

After much faffing about, I managed to stick a new plug on the end of that network cable. So the scrobbles should be scrobbled. And the interface should interface. You getting on alright with applescript, Iain?

Had a minor setback involving itunes not wanting to enqueue a track if you give it the name, but if you give it some weird track identifier it possibly works. Going to test that tomorrow and then hopefully it will be sorted.

Hi Iain,

I'll pm the access details you need.

No php installed atm.

I'll pm static address as well.

Cool, nice work!

I thought there was PHP on the jukebox machine.

Apache comes as standard with OS X, php doesn't. I haven't installed it, so I'm pretty sure it's not there.

I think I installed it when I was setting up the jukebox for Iain to use.

That's cool, it wasn't that long ago so it'll definitely be a suitable version.
