       cccd - yet another CD player with CDDB support




       cccd is a small GTK+ CD player program with many features:

         * Works with SCSI devices
         * CDDB lookups (local and remote) and local storing
         * Uses very little screen space
         * Handles CD Extras (mixed mode CDs)




       Upon starting cccd two windows will pop up: a smaller control panel and
       a status window.

   The Control Panel
       Here are the buttons for controlling the CD drive. The main action will
       take  place  here.  The left most button is the exit button, which will
       cause cccd to quit. The right most button will cause  the  Info  window
       (q.v.)  to  pop  up.   Buttons in the top row (left to right): Previous
       Track, Play, Next Track, and in the bottom row: Pause, Stop and  Eject.
       Their functions should be self-explanatory.

   The Status Window
       You will see four rows of text here, and a progress bar below that. The
       top most row shows the Artist and Title of the CD, if known. Below that
       is  the track title. Then comes the time display and then a status row.
       You can toggle the time display between

         - CD time passed
         - CD time remaining,
         - Track time passed,
         - Track time remaining

       by  clicking  on  the  window  above  the  progress  bar.   The  status
       information  will  show  the current status and the play mode.  You can
       toggle the playmodes (Normal, Loop Track, Loop CD, Random) by  clicking
       on  the  progress bar. The progress bar will always show the elapsed CD

   The Info Window
       This window is divided into two sections:

       Here you can see (and later enter) the CD title and Artist, followed by
       a  list  of  the  Track titles. Below this there are button that (will)
       allow you to Save the current CD data,  submit  it  to  a  remote  CDDB
       database,  and  Undo  any  changes you have made since the last saving.
       You can realize a playlist of the tracks you want to hear, by  clicking
       on  the track row. Darker tracks will not be played. (Note: Data tracks
       will be 'unselected' automatically).

       You can enter the relevant data for remote  and  local  cddb  databases
       here, and the lookup order.  If the remote databases lookup protocol is
       http, you will need to enter the  URL  in  addition  to  the  hostname,
       without          the          leading          "http://"          (e.g.
       "".  The  category  section  is
       not used, and will be omitted in future versions.  "Save" will save the
       info to "~/.cccdrc". I'll leave to your imagination what Undo does.
