===Summary===
 
[[Pony]] holds all the music, [[Zebra]] and [[Horsy]] accesses the music and plays it on the speakers. '''The easiest way to control what music either machine plays is to connect to its web interface at [http://pony.noise/juke http://pony.noise/juke].'''
 
 
 
===Playing Music===
 
[[Horsy]] has a mount to [[Pony]]'s music directory (pony.noise:/d2/music). [http://mpd.wikia.com/ MPD] scans this directory and builds up a library based off of its contents. [[Horsy]] can then play back anything form that library through the speakers. In order to tell MPD on [[Horsy]] what to play, you'll need to interface to it with a [http://mpd.wikia.com/wiki/Clients client], which is available for many operating systems. Luckily for you a web interface has already been setup on [[Pony]], but if you want more control please look into the clients.
 
 
 
* '''Web:''' [http://pony.noise/juke http://pony.noise/juke] or [http://172.30.0.30/juke http://172.30.0.30/juke]
 
* '''MPD Client to [[Horsy]]:''' horsy.noise or 172.30.0.44 port 6600
 
* '''MPD Client to [[Zebra]]:''' zebra.noise or 172.30.0.41 port 6600
 
 
 
For as yet unknown reasons certain machines get "permissions denied" when attempting to use the web interface. On my ''(steen)'' machine this happens, and I can still use the quite lovely commandline [http://mpd.wikia.com/wiki/Client:Ncmpc ncmpc] client. with just "ncmpc --host horsy.local". In fact I'm doing it right now. You should be here. My music taste is impeccable.
 
 
 
The desktop web interface is [http://relaxx.dirk-hoeschen.de/ relaXX] and the mobile is [http://code.google.com/p/neompc/ NeoMPC].
 
 
 
If you'd like to play files directly from either machine, check the web interface page for shell access.
 
 
 
===Getting Music into the Jukebox===
 
Music content lives on [[Pony]], not [[Horsy]] or [[Zebra]]. You'll need an account on [[Pony]], using your favorite method of putting files on a different machine please place your music in pony.noise:/d2/music. Once there, refresh the MPD library through your favorite client or the web interface.
 
 
 
===Streaming to MPD===
 
====Linux====
 
Open source is pretty damned awesome because if aliens ever attack us we know from Independence day that they will be using OS9 mac servers and we will be safe from their superior OS 9 hacks.
 
 
 
====Mac OSX====
 
Check out an application called [http://www.rogueamoeba.com/nicecast/ NiceCast]. It's a very quick and simple way to stream the output of iTunes to a Shoutcast server.
 
 
 
* Play something from iTunes and start NiceCast up, turn on the stream
 
* ssh into a machine that runs mpc (media player client)
 
* $ export MPD_HOST=noisebridge-greet.local
 
* $ mpc clear
 
* $ mpc add http://localipaddress:8000/listen
 
* $ mpc play
 
 
 
==AirTunes==
 
AirTunes is a way to stream audio over the network to speakers via an Apple Airport Express. '''Sadly the Airport Express hasn't been found since the move.''' Please read above on how to get MPD to stream a radio station from your local machine.
 
 
 
== Using ESD ==
 
The easiest way to play music over the jukebox thing from a GNU system:
 
 
 
$ ESPEAKER=horsy.noise mplayer -ao esd $FILE
 
 
 
== .door ==
 
At acm.jhu.edu, the computer controlling the mag-stripe card reader that would unlock the door would also play a file in /home/username/.door on the speakers in the room.  Ta-da - entrance music!
 
 
 
This should probably be added to the feature requests to be added to our [[AccessSystem]]
