    HowTo/MakeYourOwnMp3Database

    To make your own local mp3-database, baed on mysql ,with a browser frontend, check out MysqlMp3:


    http://www.steve.org.uk/Software/mysql-mp3/

    made by SteveKemp ,author and maintainer of the GNUMP3d.


    This handles most of the important steps:

       * Indexing an MP3 collection to a database
       * Allowing browsing and streaming
       * Statistics collection
       * Searching for music
    


    Requirements

       To use this software you will need an MySQL database server, upon the same host as your MP3s.
    
       You will also need a working Perl installation, with the following two additional modules installed:
    
           * DBI - A database abstraction layer.
           * HTML::Template - A templating system.
    
       Upon a Debian system these can be installed by running the following commands as root:
    
    apt-get update
    apt-get install libdbi-perl
    apt-get install libhtml-template-perl
    

    How It Works

       The software is in two parts:
    
           * An indexer which scans a directory recursively looking for media content and inserting it into a database
           * A deamon which runs and listens upon a network port, answering requests with information stored in the database which the indexer inserted.
