Everyone,

I am Ross Carlson - the Project Leader of Jinzora - a web based media streaming and management tool written in PHP (and GPLed).

We just completed a real-time transcoding engine for our next release of Jinzora (available in CVS or nightly builds). The current version allows you to transcode and stream on-the-fly and in real-time the following formats:

Flac
Musepack
Wavpack
Wav
Ogg
MP3

(the last two are really to allow for resampling for streaming at lower bitrates)

What this does is convert the file from the above formats to MP3 on the fly in memory to allow for realtime streaming without having to convert your entire collection to MP3. While we have tested this with our group quite a bit we would love to get input from Lossless users everywhere.

Please stop by http://www.jinzora.com and grab a copy of Jinzora. Remember to grab our CVS tree or nighly build to give this a go. Then see the following forum post:

http://www.jinzora.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2011

That should give the all the details to get this going.

Thanks, and let us know in our forums over at http://www.jinzora.com

hi,

an engine?

On-the-fly transcoding is available in NetJukeBox for months, lossless to lossy and vice versa, just needs stdout decoder and stdin/out encoder. You could just have taken their code cause it's GPLed PHP too.

Well good for them. Not sure what your post was unless you're just trying to bash us.

If you want to use their sub-standard interface over ours be our guest. We just wanted to let everyone here know that our powerful interface and feature set has added this too.

And yes, we just use stdin/stdout. Referring to it as an "engine" is simply a metaphor. However since ours is very flexible it's very easy to add new formats (we've added a few since I posted this).

So not sure if I missed some point or not...

2nd man on the Moon, hm OK

ours is very flexible it's very easy to add new formats
same for NetJukeBox (I added a WMAL decoder (had to modify it first though cause it lacked WAV headers) and an ogg vorbis encoder (not a big deal) and also wrote an overlib menu that allows selecting the encoding format on-the-fly).

If you want to use their sub-standard interface over ours be our guest.
I've just taken a look at your interface and it is completely bloated IMO.

Have a nice music listening

Superlexx,

I'm sorry you feel our interface is bloated and that you feel it necessary to flame us when all we are doing is letting the public know about features we are adding.

Oh, and if you think that our "Slick" inteface is too bloated feel free to choose from the other 6 interfaces we support - from simple to complex. I guess choice is too much for you?

Enjoy Netjukebox, we really don't care for users like you that would flame someone for doing work for free and trying to let everyone know about it...

If anyone has anything constructive to say we would VERY much welcome it. We encourage feedback in our project and always welcome it...

Oh, and we may be the second man on the moon, but we've built the lunar base!!!
