Summary

This page describes how to play mp3 format audio streams and files on your Didj using madplay, a command-line mp3 player.

Prerequisites

Set up the Build Environment

In order to stream a networked MP3 stream, first set up networking.


Software Needed

madplay-0.15.2b.tar.gz

libmad-0.15.1b.tar.gz

libid3tag-0.15.1b.tar.gz

zlib-1.2.5.tar.gz


Building madplay

Create a folder called madplay_build and then extract the abovementioned archives into folders in madplay_build.

In addition to setting your build environment variables, you need to set these variables also.

export CC=arm-linux-uclibcgnueabi-gcc
export CXX=arm-linux-uclibcgnueabi-gcc
export CPPFLAGS='-I/full/path/to/madplay_build/libmad-0.15.1b -I/full/path/to/madplay_build/libid3tag-0.15.1b -I/full/path/to/madplay_build/zlib-1.2.5'
export LDFLAGS='-L/full/path/to/madplay_build/libmad-0.15.1b -L/full/path/to/madplay_build/libid3tag-0.15.1b -L/full/path/to/madplay_build/zlib-1.2.5'


Build zlib

Enter the directory zlib-1.2.5 and run:

$ ./configure 

then run

make


Build libid3tag

Enter the directory libid3tag-0.15.1b and type

$ ./configure --host=arm

then type

$ make

after which, type

$ cp .libs/libid3tag.a . 

(note the trailing dot)


Build libmad

Enter the directory libmad-0.15.1b Note: Edit 'configure', removing '-fforce-mem' from the CFLAGS directive with the following command.

$ sed -i -e '/fforce-mem/d' configure

and then type

$ ./configure --host=arm


then type

$ make

after which, type

$ cp .libs/libmad.a . 

(note the trailing dot)


Build madplay

Enter the directory madplay-0.15.2b and type

$ ./configure --host=arm

then type

$ make

Finally, strip the madplay file as follows:

$ arm-linux-uclibcgnueabi-strip madplay


Install madplay

Transfer the file, plus one or more MP3s of your choosing, to your Didj.

Make sure the lightning application is stopped.

On Didj

$ /etc/init.d/lightning stop

Playing MP3s

To execute madplay, On the Didj:

# madplay yourfile.mp3

Streaming MP3s

To stream audio, wget a stream (the example is NPR news), while piping the stream through madplay:

# wget -O - http://npr.ic.llnwd.net/stream/npr_live24 | ./madplay - 

Note that .pls files are not supported in madplay. (but you can open them with a text editor to get the URL)

Enjoy the sound!
