Musica Now Supports mp3, ogg, flac, wav!

January 21, 2009

I have previously blogged about Musica–a web application that provides browsing, streaming, and downloading your music over http/https. At the time, Musica only supported indexing of MP3 files.

Several readers of my blog requested support for FLAC and OGG files. I agreed to hack this up, they opened bugs: Bug #313408 and Bug #288839.

I rolled out musica-1.4 last week, which now contains support for MP3, FLAC, OGG, and WAV files. The code changes were actually really minimal. If you’re interested in seeing the PHP modifications, refer to:

You should be able to install the binaries on Hardy, Intrepid, and Jaunty.

Obligatory screen shot:

Note the sample artist, Jeff Luna…one of the funniest guys I know! Head over to where you can listen to this album for free, and buy it if you like it. My Mom’s Van is my favorite ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Thanks Dustin for inadvertently giving me a huge hand! I am packaging a project of my own, wxBanker (my first!) using the Silk icon set, and couldn’t figure out how to do my debian/copyright properly. If you have an extra minute and want to help me even more, you could REVU ( it ๐Ÿ™‚ It is my great aspiration to get it into Jaunty but the feedback lag is causing it to not look up.

    I followed the instructions and everything seems to work fine and end up as and where it should be. However, my browser took exception to “http://localhost/musica” and tried to open / download / save a file called dqvQV04n.phtml.part “which is a PHTML FILE”.

    Do you have any ideas as to what I am doing wrong?
