    (Redirected from Blinken Xmms)

    Über Blinken XMMS[edit]

    Das blinken_xmms ist ein Spectrum-Analyser-Plugin für den Multimedia Player Xmms. Es sendet UDP-Pakete an eine konfigurierbare IP Adresse im EBLP - extended Blinkenlights protocol mit 8x18 Pixeln. Die Ausgabe kann z.B. mit lldrv auf ein BlinkenLEDsPro umgeleitet werden.

    (Graustufen werden leider nicht konvertiert),

    Den Quellcode für das XMMS-Plugin habe ich mit Hilfe von Workshop: Vis-Plugins in XMMS und XMMS Plugin tutorial at nobugs.org erstellen können. Desweiteren waren Informationen zum EBLP - extended Blinkenlights protocol sehr nützlich. Der "Rechen-Kern" für die Visualisierung entspricht dem des spectrum Plugins.

    Jetzt mit Graustufen und Konfig-GUI!

    About Blinken XMMS[edit]

    Blinken_xmms is a spectrum-analyzer plugin for the multimedia player Xmms. It sends UDP-packets to a configurable IP adress using the EBLP - extended Blinkenlights protocol with 8x18 pixels. The output can be redirected to a BlinkenLEDsPro device using lldrv.

    The source code for this XMMS-plugin has been created with the help of Workshop: Vis-Plugins in XMMS and XMMS Plugin tutorial at nobugs.org. Furthermore information about the EBLP - extended Blinkenlights protocol was helpful. The core for the visualization is identical to the spectrum plugin.

    Now with shades of grey and config-GUI!

    Install & Use[edit]

    Download source[edit]

    Save all files to an empty directory.

    Blinken_XMMS.c ! Save to: Blinken_XMMS.c !

    blinken_xmms.h ! Save to: blinken_xmms.h !

    configure.h ! Save to: configure.h !


    Within the directory to which you saved the three files, type:

     gcc -Wall --shared `xmms-config --cflags` -o Blinken_XMMS.so Blinken_XMMS.c

    U may need to install the XMMS development lib and headerfiles xmms-dev in order to compile. As root type e.g.

     apt-get install xmms-dev


    as root type:

     install Blinken_XMMS.so `xmms-config --visualization-plugin-dir`

    Use it[edit]

    • Start xmms as usual (or for debuging reasons from the console by typing xmms - if this isnt anyway your usual method to start xmms ;)).
    • Right-click in the xmms-window. A popup-menu should appear.
    • Choose "Visualisierung" and then "Visualisierungs-Plugins". A settings-window should appear.
    • Choose - if not already selected - the tab "Visalisierungs-Plugins" in this settings-window.
    • There should be a new entry "Blinken_XMMS [Blinken_XMMS.so]" within the list of "Visualisierungs-Plugins". Select it by clicking on it.
    • Activate the radio-button in the lower right corner of the settings-window labeled "Plugin verwenden" by clicking on it.
    • Click the configure-button in the lower left corner of the settings-window labeled "Konfigurieren".
    • A new window "Blinken XMMS configuration" should appear now. Enter the IP and port of your blinkendevice or the host where your blinkensoftware (e.g. BlinkenLib or BlinkenApplet) is running.
    • Click "Ok" to close the window "Blinken XMMS configuration" - if xmms is playing music right now your blinkendevice should already receive blinken-frames :)
    • Click "Ok" to close the settings-window.


    • enjoy the new blinkenstream
    • give us feedback :-)
