Jinzora


I installed Jinzora today.  It looks like it has promise, especially since netjuke is not supported anymore.  (In fact, the web site is not running anymore.)


There are a few things that I like about it are:


  • It can automatically transcode music to support slower connections.

  • It can display a list of similar tracks


There are some things that don't work with it.


  • I was only able to import music when the meta data was read from the folder structure, and not from the tags.

  • You can not remove all of the tracks from the database from within the interface.  I had to drop the tabes, and the recreate them again.

  • I have not been able to figure out how to change the interface.  I set it up in the install wizard, and I am not able to change it.





I think that I leave both Jinzora and Netjuke installed.  I am still able to use Netjuke for all of the urls that had been exported before.  And Netjuke TiVo still works.
