Music Library

Music Library is a music-on-demand system for phpGroupware. It searches recursively through a directory full of files for audio formats you specify and dumps their artist, album, and track names into a database. You can then browse, search, or listen over HTTP. It features custom playlists, and comes with an MP3 renaming script to ease the task of administration as well as an Applescript for using XMMS via X11 on OS X.
