OK.... hoping not to sound like an arse here, new to the jukebox software scene. I've gone through this thread a bit and noticed alot of great looking software. Most of which seem to be touchscreen operated and suited best for that purpose. The compiled lists are great, but don't really designate which operation method they are best used for. (keypad or touchscreen)
I have an actual original jukebox with no guts to it and was planning on installing a PC, jukebox software, etc, etc. (fixing it original would be outrageously expensive)
I plan to use the original keypad that is already on the machine just as if it were all back to original aside from a monitor to view.

My question is:
Can anyone recommend a strictly key mappable type jukebox software?
( Not interested in touchscreen options at all )

DOSCab/WinCab Jukebox is completely key-mappable and can adapt to several different control schemes.  What model jukebox are you adapting?

It's an AMI Disco 200.




A friend of mine got a trade deal on three jukes, two just need minor repairs he plans to sell, this one is totally empty of it's inner workings so I'll get that one and help him fix the others. And I had already had my eye on it anyways for this sort of project. So it should work out good. (now that I get a chance to play with it) I haven't actually picked it up yet, so I'm not sure how many keys, etc it has just yet. And I'm not sure how I will do the monitor on it quite yet as I've only seen pictures of it so far. As much of it as possible will remain original.

Thanks for the heads-up on the software. I'll go check those out and play around with them.
I'll try not to disturb this particular thread with my project..... might start a new one somewhere, just needed suggestions on software and the lists in this thread were great but I needed that tid bit of clarification to try a couple out.

EDIT: Started a new thread for the "project" aspect of all this.

Do you even want to put a monitor on it?  You can just use the original titlestrips... I'll be happy to help you configure the software, you'll need a custom skin to match the control panel layout.  But you're right that we shouldn't take up this thread; you may want to re-post it in  the DOSCab/WinCab forum if you want to give it a try.  (Using a DOS-based PC instead of Windows would mean you wouldn't have to wait long for your juke to boot...)

Doh! I posted one that WAS listed... Here is the full list as it stands (Broken links not on this list..)

I am looking for a Windows-based jukebox that will play both MP3s and Music Videos. I went through your list and found quite a few links that need to be changed/updated:

Bad Links

Arcade Jukebox - http://home.att.net/~mark.schwartz/
Frodo Player - http://www.frodoplayer.com/
Album Player - http://www.cdr-zone.com/software/ (could not find on page)

Update Links

Digital Jukebox - http://www.rastaworld.com
(Should be marked as COMMERCIAL/SHAREWARE)

eJukebox - http://www.audiosoft.net/ (WINAMP REQ.)
(Should be marked as Commercial / Download is 30 day trial)

Silver Juke - http://www.silverjuke.net/en/index.html
(Should be marked as Commercial / Download is 14 day trial)

SK Jukebox - http://www.mameworld.net/skjukebox
(Link has changed to http://www.skjukebox.com)


About the only jukebox I've found that does what I want it to is The Jukebox'er, but it seems to be pretty memory intensive for an old 633mhz machine. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears.

On that list his picture for PCJukebox is the image of Freebox running the fink diner skin.

If you look at the list of software screenshots one thing that jumps out at me is the fact that a lot of thoose would only really work with a mouse. Would be great if there was a site where somebody actually road tested all the juke software on a touchscreen, arcade cab and a juke with buttons type set up. Obviously it needs to be somebody who is not connected with any of the software authors...

This is why I and Others created wiki jukebox list here on arcade controls. Trying to test and correct the entries on the wiki to accurate as possible. It also listed wich controls it most was suited for (I does have removed touch support in that wiki, since AMB example never was used great with it).

Hope that wki goes better for testing software and correct errors.

Otherwice a fine list.

PS. I have changed freebox skinsupport to "full" instead of "Any" wich was a error (Sorry Barcrest).

BoxEasy modification for TouchScreen.

Firstly apologies if I'm breaking any rules here. I freely own up that BoxEasy is my program but have been in communication with several forum members so please don't consider this spam!

BoxEasy is not everyone's cup of tea but enough forum members are using it, and have requested they can use it as a Touchscreen jukebox,  so this is just an update that there is now a kiosk modification that existing users can download for free from www.ziggyred.com (see the message board under "Support")

You need to already have the main version to set it up, as the kiosk version is purely designed for easy jukebox operation (e.g. TouchScreens from 800x600 up) and can't be used to add new albums etc (it simply uses the existing database from the main version).

The kiosk version is also now part of the main download for any new users who want to try it out.

Still early stages so any comments on are welcomed on the BoxEasy forum.

And thanks to everyone here for a great forum - Adam.

Now you can use buttons to controll freebox to a usable standard. You can pick an album and play a song off it just using buttons. You can also skip tracks, pause and controll the volume so it might be of some use to you guys that don't have touchscreens. Just thought i would give you the heads up.

Just wanted to give a heads up about an update to eJukebox. In one of the above posts it says eJukebox requires winamp but as of 4.5 that is no longer the case. eJukebox will now work without winamp plus it comes with a new touchscreen friendly skin called 'EJ'.

Will have to try out.

If it works well, it would be worth the $45  :applaud:

So far it's got one of the more intuitive and logical touchscreen interfaces I've seen, but the "reflection" effect is a bit overdone, and there are some weird random crashes I'm getting on both of my test machines.
I'm a little leary spending that amount of $$ for version 1.anything...

Hi,

Anyone wanting to try out a beta of Home JukeBox can download it from http://www.ziggyred.com/homejukebox/ .

Developed from BoxEasy it's free whilst in Beta.  Has many features including a CD ripper and a basic tag editor (unlike BoxEasy it arranges music according to tag info).

Any comments welcomed.



Cheers - Adam.

I think I now have installed and tried every jukebox software possible for my touch screen setup. And after finding many cool ones and not so cool ones I was still not impressed. When I was about to give up I found this site www.zenpoint.com and downloaded the demo. OMG!!!  Words cannot explain my thoughts about this software, simply clean and easy to use and I spoke with them and they said dual monitor support is coming soon and probably on the next update. I recommend everyone to give this a try, it plays movies, music, picture slideshow and even a clock which was pretty neat. Hope this helps anyone looking for something that is extrememly modern and fancy.

I have nothing to do with Zenpoint software. I just like it compared to all the other toush screen softwares out there. To many of them look unprofessional to me. Album Player is another good one in my opinion. But still zenpoint has more features. I figured out today that you can add other applications to it, pretty much like adding shortcuts to load other programs. Might be useful, dont know yet.

One more thing, if i was advertising my business on here it would be for vinyl graphics, because thats what I do.

:edit..   Vrockola is pretty sweet too! Thanks JukeJunkie! Going to give that software a try today. Especially nice that its free, I still havent purchased zenpoint because i was waiting for dual monitor support.

I'm trying out the ZenPoint DigitalCenter package.  It's pretty nice.  It would be great for a standard monitor aspect ratio.  When you stretch it to fill the widescreen monitor that is my MSI touchscreen all-in-one unit, it stretches the album covers.  But it's fast and nicely animated.  I'm not a fan of internet radio, but they implemented that nicely in the program package, too.

real jukebox software you can download for free
and works well with a keypad

VRockola 2006 is free for 999 songs or videos. Provides complete capabilities and unlimited evaluation time. More than 999 Songs and it's $49 or $99 for the pro, i am only saying this as the impression was given it is free ::)

That Zenpoint software has a great interface though, i really like how they have implimented it.
