myTunes: Music-library and player

myTunes is my own music-library and player. I wrote it primarily because I wanted a music player with an iTunes-like rating system; so I can play my entire music collection on random, and mostly hear my favourite music.

Notable features:

  • Plays MP3 and Ogg files
  • iTunes-inspired rating system
  • Random playback will mostly play your favourite music
  • Keeps your music files organized in a nice directory-structure
  • Keeps your ID3 tags and Ogg metainformation updated
  • Imports ID3 tags and Ogg metainformation

Coming features:

  • UI for tagging your music (e.g. this is music for hacking sessions)
  • Filters for the random playback mode (e.g. don’t play classical music right now)
  • UI for browsing your music library (by artist, by rating, etc)
  • UI for searching your music library
  • Playlists

It’s written in Python and uses Durus to keep it’s database and pygame to play your music.
