[SOLVED] qmmp

Hi

I quite like qmmp. Mainly because of it's speed and ease of use.
And it has THE killer-feature built-in which is the "crossfade-module".
The version i can get on jessie is 0.8.2 - the latest one which i really wanna test is 0.10.5.
Unfortunately i haven't succeeded in compiling this thing by myself. I got lost in dependency hell as well as in basic tools, libs etc. required to get this up and running.
I have seen 1.1.4-1 in Sid but can't install this in jessie-based bunsenlabs of course.
Has anybody managed to build it or found a deb for an easy install? Any help is highly appreciated.

Re: [SOLVED] qmmp

You could try running it in a sid container, guide here:

Re: [SOLVED] qmmp

Hi. Did follow the given instructions and was able to set up this sid container as well as installing the latest and greatest qmmp. Fantastic!

Unfortunately for me this is just a "theoretical approach". I can't access my huge music library, i can't send music to my external usb sound card, i can't play a webstream - finally qmmp crashed ...

I guess it may be possible to figure it all out - but i don't think it's worth the time to be spent on this adventure. Either i can find an updated deb for Jessie or i just stick with what i have got right now.

I would even rather dare to "transform" my Jessie BL to a SID BL instead ...

Thx. for your help!

Re: [SOLVED] qmmp

I'll see if I can backport it in the multimedia backport repo I have on the openSUSE Build Service.  Note that I have a preference for having Qt packages build on Qt 4 instead of Qt 5 if they support it, the opposite of upstream Debian, because Qt 5.3.2 in Jessie doesn't support theming, and I use some awesome Kvantum ones on Qt 4.

Edit:  It looks like there's a stable 0.10.5 Qt 4 version that gets bug fixes, but no new features, and a newer Qt 5 version that is up to 1.15 now. I'll try the 1.15 version in the OBS....nope, that requires Qt 5 >= 5.4, so I'll do 0.10.5 instead.

Re: [SOLVED] qmmp

OK-qmmp-0.10.5 and qmmp-plugins-pack-0.10.2 are built and working.  Here's the Debian thread about the repository:  http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=127574

The packages were built against the ffmpeg 3.2 libraries in my repository, so will pull in some of those newer libraries, such as libavcodec57. They won't break anything that uses older versions of the libav* libraries.

For the benefit of anybody who wants to try this approach, a music directory can be bound to the container with the --bind & --bind-ro flags, for example:

sudo systemd-nspawn --directory=/var/lib/container/sid --setenv=DISPLAY=:0 --user=$user --bind=/home/$user/Music qmmp

Read `man systemd-nspawn` for more details on the many options available, it really is tremendously flexible and very simple to configure smile

USB sticks and other devices can be accessed from the container by this method:

Hi Guys - this is nothing less than true magic! Thank you so much. It took quite some time for me to understand stevep's advise, but now i have got the latest qmmp up and running.

It's so cool! Don't have to compromise my stable setup plus the updated music player i love. What else can you ask for .... This forum and these people are great. Providing helpful, real solutions and not just exchange of prejudices like seen on too many forums.
