Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

I know you're working on adding things to this and I've been having a blast playing with skinning. As you can tell, I'm not creating the "standard" jukebox look and have a question about the labels for song selection. Is there currently a way to have it show a joined Artist - Title (including the d...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

So much more of this makes sense now. You kept referring me to the user manual which didn't make sense to me since it was of no use. Apparently when I typed in the command to create it, I fat fingered something and the resulting file contained only the same few lines you get from the command prompt...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Do you have a schematic showing pinouts to the buttons? Sorry, no I don't have any schematics. For my jukebox, I just connected each button to an unused GPIO pin (one button pin) and GND (the other button pin). I then used the Adafruit "retrogame" utility to map those GPIO pins to generate keyboard...

Holy Nostalgia Batman!! I've been a user of DOSCab since early 2002 with the first release. Since getting into RPi's I've had ideas of a custom jukebox but wanted that old paper tag look/feel. Fruitbox is apparently the answer and it installed and works great. I have a question on controls. I have ...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi, fruitbox version 1.3 is now released. This fixes an issue MichaelH was seeing; his database file contained a song entry with a massive TrackNumber entry, which caused fruitbox to abort. Now fruitbox can cope with these invalid values (> 2^31 - 1) by issuing a warning, ignoring the song entry and...

Hi! Thanks a lot for your fast reaction. Now I'm getting close having a perfect jukebox in original body ;) Will post a picture when ready. One more question.

Thank you both. I have no preference for the justboom, I’ll check out hifiberry to see if they have something suitable for a zero.
The HiFiBerry Amp2 is compatible with the zero (according to their website)..

I was planning to use a pi zero. If I add the justboom amp hat, will I still have access to the GPIO pins to connect buttons? I expect this is a dumb question, but can somebody confirm with a yes or no? I’m itching to order the amp :) . Thanks Hi, Not sure as I haven't used one, but if you check ou...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi, If you run fruitbox first time it will create a database file with the MP3 songs it finds. You can then edit the fruitbox.db file manually to order the songs as you wish, and then make sure the SortSongsBy parameter in fruitbox.cfg is set to 'Unsorted' (without the quotes). That way the select c...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi

Not sure...fruitbox doesn't use the libretro API but it may be possible to install it alongside retropie and call it from the EmulationStation frontend. I'm not the best person to ask....maybe someone else would know?

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

That error is expected - since fruitbox.cfg doesn't exist in the installation directory. You need to specify the fruitbox.cfg from one of the skins, i.e. ./fruitbox --cfg skins/WallJuke/fruitbox.cfg Before you run it, you need to put your MP3 files somewhere, and then edit the fruitbox.cfg file to p...
