A music playing daemon
ZoltanPlayer is a music playing daemon. It accepts remote commands via its own mini HTTP server and can use seamlessly Audio or Data CDs. Audio CDs are played internally (optionally querying CDDB info servers) and digital songs in audio CDs are played via external players. It's not limited to CDs, as a hard disk directory can also be used.
The optimal equipment for ZoltanPlayer is a CDROM-equipped computer directly connected to an amplifier or stereo. It's not a streaming server, nor a ripper, nor a simple HTTP+HTML interface jukebox (this could be done with a CGI). ZoltanPlayer integrates the controlling of CD insertion / eject with the capability of directly playing CD Audio and spawning external player for MP3 / Ogg Vorbis / whatever song files.
This software only runs on Linux and it's licensed under the GPL.
ZoltanPlayer is happier when playing good music; you can download quality songs from Ann Hell.
