Intone is an elementary based front end for mplayer written in C.

The recommended way to organise music is to put all the files in a folder (lets say Music), with sub folders named after artists (say Music ->Eagles) and with sub sub folders holding albums (that becomes Music->Eagles->Hell Freezes Over->*.mp3). That way, Intone can correctly organise your music collection. It automatically creates a default playlist containing all songs and individual playlists for each album.


Intone requires and updated version of libelementary0, libsqlite3-0, libvorbis, id3lib and mplayer.

To Install

opkg install mplayer libvorbis libsqlite3-0 libelementary0 id3lib

Of course, Chaitanya Chandel for creating and maintaining this great app! Rasterman for Elementary and for going easy ;-) Treviño for seeking patch, Icon ideas and general e tips. Łukasz Pankowski for the 'remember where paused' feature idea. Yogiz for the loop playlist feature idea. Jérôme Lahalle for the restart after incoming phone call only idea. Laszlo KREKACS for swapping the buttons and seek bar. The Digital Pioneer for the bt support idea. And everybody else who chipped in to tell me what to improve.
