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.
"example.url.com/cddb/database/lookup.cgi". 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.
