Project Summary

Mu is an all-encompassing, networked audio player and image browser. With Mu, you can access your music and photos anytime, anywhere. It doesn't matter whether they're stored remotely via your JReceiver web service or locally on your hard drive. Your collection is presented to you in one well-organized, hierarchical list. You can currently browse by artist and album, and future versions will allow for more complex queries.

Mu contains a rich graphical client (written entirely in Java 2D and Swing) for use at home, perhaps even on the TV screen in your home theater. There is also a barebones Swing-based lite version of Mu for quick access to your music collection when you're on the go... Supported audio formats include OGG, MP3, WAV, and AIFF (FLAC forthcoming). Supported image formats include JPEG, PNG, and GIF.


Chris Campbell - original concept and design, audio playback module, content backend

Jim Graham - transition and animation manager
Dmitri Trembovetski - image browser
Jeff Dinkins - artwork

Special thanks to:

Reed Esau - for help with JReceiver integration, and for the use of the excellent Ptarmigan metadata scanning package
Paul Noffke - for suggestions on audio sequencer and content backend (check out his Java-based tRio software for the Rio Receiver)
