In this dialog you change the various settings that are global for the entire jukebox. To change various local browser settings, you have to use the edit database menu options.
These options affect the way which the Jukebox handles selections, snooze values etc.
Generic Options II
If this option is set the Jukebox will restart playing once the entire selectionlist has been played.
Reset after # tracks
This option tells the Jukebox to reset the repeat/random after a set number of songs has been played. If the number is set to 1, a random play will be completely random with the possibility that a song is selected twice in a row. If set to 0, this feature is disabled.
Repeat # times
This option tells the Jukebox how many times to repeat the selection before terminating play. If set to 1, it behaves in the same manner as if repeat was disabled. If set to 0, this feature is disabled.
This option terminates play as soon as the volume reaches the set snooze volume.
Snooze after song
This option reduces the volume gradually to the set snooze volume, and then lingers there until the song has completed before stopping play.
Snooze to volume
This setting tells the jukebox to what value it should gradually lower the volume to before applying either Snooze after song or Snooze immediately.
Snooze after # minutes
This setting the Jukebox that once the snooze button is pressed, it should wait a number of minutes before actually performing the snooze.
Stat selected songs
If checked this tells the Jukebox to attempt to extract information regarding a selected song. Information being extracted is usually bitrate, frequency, song length, etc.
Stat networked songs
If checked this tells the Jukebox to also stat networked songs. It doesn't do that by default simply because statting over network is time consuming.
Save stat information
If checked the Sajber Jukebox will save retrieved stat information when a database is written to disk. This will allow for faster retrieval but will also lead to the problem that the information might become redundant if the file is changed.
This is the directory where the Sajber Jukebox will save its databases, selections and various configuration files.
Continuation of the generic options.
Double click restarts
Historically, or atleast the last few revisions, the Jukebox kept track of where in the playlist it was. The position was reset if the play button was pressed, but enter and double click did not. If set, the Jukebox will reset the playlist status and use the new position as start.
Clear clears all
Another obscure option. If checked, this option tells the Jukebox that when the clear button is pressed, all songs presently selected should be removed. If it's not checked, only the songs belonging to the currently active browser will be cleared.
This configuration dialog allows you to edit the list of browser to be saved and autoloaded during startup.
This is a listing of databases available in the Sajber Directory.
This is a listing of databases currently being autoloaded.
This button allows you to browse the local filesystem for database files. Database files have the extension mpd. Due to the flakey nature of file I/O in the Jukebox, files not databases should not be loaded.
This button adds a selected database to the autoload list.
This button removes an autoloading database from the autoload list.
Clear buttonThis button clears the autoload list.
These settings decide how the Jukebox should treat the player and how the player should work. It also handles other hardware settings, such as mixers.
If the player supports it, this option tells it that it should release the audiodevice when it is not in use.
This option instructs the Jukebox not to attempt to read/write from/to the /dev/mixer device. This option isintended towards those architectures or soundcards that does not support, or for some reason fails to work with theJukebox mixer.
If supported by the player, this option tells it that it may use realtime scheduling when playing.
If the player supports it, this option tells it that it may change its priority at will when playing, to maximize performance.
Buffer number of frames
If the player supports it, this option tells it how large a buffer it should be using. The buffer size is given in number of frames[4608 bytes]. This will change shortly, and be given in real bytes instead.
Buffer number of frames ahead
If the player supports it, this option tells it how many frames to decode before starting the actual playing. This is useable if you are playing music off the net, and the connection is slow or unstable.
This option tells the Jukebox what playing program to use to play music. It has to support the Jukebox protocol.
