Elementary based mplayer frontend (for audio files).

Package: intone_0.51_arm.ipk
Tested on: FSO MS 5.1, SHR-unstable



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 elementary and libsqlite3. If you have elementary on your phone upgraded to a level where the elementary test application shows you a demo of sliders and genlists, Intone should run on your phone.

To Install

opkg install libsqlite3-0 libelementary0

I have been using this[1] version of mplayer from FSO.

Gen usage details Type CPU Mem| ogg ~53% 3.1%| m4a ~21% 2.7%| mp3 ~8.7% 2.4%|

PaulTT has compiled a version of mplayer with tremor available here[2]. This is better for ogg as below :- Gen usage details Type CPU Mem| ogg ~25.9% 2.7%| m4a ~24.7% 3.1%| mp3 ~7.5% 2.5%|


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. And everybody else who chipped in to tell me what to improve.
