Projects / Cajun


Cajun is a program that allows you to turn any computer into a massive audio jukebox for your car or home. It uses LCD displays/keypads, and supports infrared remote controls. Soundcard output is delivered to your (car or home) stereo for amplification. The software supports a playlist and shuffle mode.

Recent releases

  •  27 May 2004 13:07

    Release Notes: This release changes the FilePlayer module responsible for MP3s and Oggs; menus are now generated on the fly, rather than requiring the user to configure the file tree manually. Many new input and output device drivers have also been added.

    •  17 Apr 2003 07:46

      Release Notes: The device drivers were redesigned with OO, Ogg Vorbis support was added to mpg123, and speed enhancements, an IceCast client, and a GPS client were added. xaudio support was removed, and a Java cxterm client was included.

      •  08 Feb 2002 13:54

        Release Notes: This release adds LCDProc support, HD44780 serial backpack support, on-the-fly playlist support, and on/off backlight support (timer-based control is coming in the next release). CrystalFontz display support has been fixed. FM-V4L display has been enhanced.

        •  12 Jan 2002 19:58

          Release Notes: After a year and a half of work, Cajun 4 is nearing a full release, and is quite ready for general use. Cajun 4 is a complete redesign and rewrite of the Cajun 3 software. It now supports multiple audio streams, multiple input/output devices per stream, different-sized displays running at the same time, a backend SQL database (MySQL), and Web administration via Apache.

          •  06 Oct 1999 18:44

            Release Notes: Version 3.0-8 is the first version created by the newly-assembled Cajun development team. It contains far too many features to list them all, but they include FM/Video4Linux support, icecast/shoutcast support, CrystalFontz serial display support, and choice of mpg123 or xaudio for driving the sound card. Version 3.0-8 will probably be the last in the 3.0 series; the core is being re-written to allow better module independance.
