MP3SRV is an server script for the popular UNIX irc client BitchX. It does basicly the same as SPR Jukebox and SD Sailor in mIRC do. It creates a list of multimedia (default: mp3) files on your harddisk, and offers the list and the files for download by anyone on defined IRC channels.
MP3SRV comes under GNU General Public License. Click a Link below to download the latest version.

For the ones who already know mIRC offer scripts SPR Jukebox and SD Sailor, I provide a litte table that shows differences between them and MP3SRV. When developing MP3SRV, I was greatly inspired by these scripts, and tried to implement most of the features and to provide compatibility with other downloader scripts (for example, the list format is the same). However it was not possible to implement every feature due to limitations of the irc Client BitchX.
|SPR Jukebox/SD Sailor||MP3SRV|
|Can define minimum and maximum transfer speeds, can stop transfer if client doesn't reach the speed.||Neither minimum nor maximum speed is available due to missing BitchX functionality|
|Customizable messages, with color||All messages hardcoded, not customizable, no color|
|Support for skins||No skins supported|
|Sends many notices on events (transfer started, completed, ...)||Uses messages only, no notices. Sends only the most important messages|
|Provides many statistics||No statistics available, except download counter that starts when the script is loaded|
|Can include the time when the next slot is available in messages||Cannot estimate when the next slot is free due to lack of BitchX functionality.|
|GUI||No GUI, command line only|
|Random play mp3 files in external player and in channels||No such feature|
|When someone leaves a channel and does not return within some minutes, file sends are cancelled and he is removed from queue||MP3SRV does not cancel sends, but when it wants to send a file to someone that is not on the channel, all his files are immediately removed from the queue|
MP3SRV has been developed and tested under BitchX latest version 1.0c18 only. It may run also under EPIC or ircII, but I offer no guarantee for this. Send all bug-reports and feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
