I just want to force 3.5mm output, I'm completely stumped how this isnt an option in the basic config file for a JUKEBOX.
This is an OS not fruitbox config. Just Google "raspberry pi force 3.5mm audio output" ... there are plenty of answers.

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

iOtero created a bunch of touch skins; I was saving them for the v2.00 release but as that's taking so long I'll see if I can add his skins to GitHub in the next day or two... ...All of iOtero's Touch skins (and Bill Budenholzer's Christmas Touch skin) are now on GitHub. Thanks guys! Enjoy! Cheers,...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

I have my little touchscreen fruitbox finished but now I have put a few thousand songs on it, the TouchOne skin was great for testing with only a hundred or so. Does anyone have any other touch skins that they can share. I would love something similar to TouchOne but with the ability to skip to dif...

Thank you for the response. I still need (want?) to insert an AMP in between to get a bit more sound. The card you've pointed out on kickstarter looks nice and cheap. I may go for that option then (even if the terms and technical explanations are way above my understanding). Thanks! Fred I use the ...

I really prefer the MikeTV theme. Is there a way to get it to play randomly like the Wurly theme?
Yes, you just need to edit skins/MikeTV/fruitbox.cfg and change AutoPlay to on. Please read userguide.txt... this should contain all the information you need.

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Since Fruitbox can't run MP4 files, is it possible to fix the metadata on .OGV files? All I can find online is editing OGG files. Extracting metadata from OGV files is currently not possible as it's not provided by the Allegro 5 library I'm using. I will ask the dev guys about supporting this, but ...

That's what I thought too, however any other folders on the drive or other files caused it to not find the music.
Ok, thanks for pointing that out... it's not the intended behaviour, so I'll take a look
