The Good

This is an excellent package for anyone who wants to add MP3 listing and streaming to Apache. The installation directions are simple and straight forward. There are a number of configuration options to change the behaviour of the module. It also uses MP3::Info to extract id3 tag info for the listings and this information can be cached for better performance. I have nearly 5 Gig. of mp3s on a k6-2 450 and speed isn't an issue.

The Bad

I had originally installed this on a stock Redhat Apache/Mod_Perl setup (mod_perl loaded dynamically). For some reason this played havoc on the stability of the module. Once I recompiled Apache and Mod_Perl from source, it behaved flawlessly.

The look of the generated pages is controled via a cascading style sheet. While this simplifies altering the apearance, it doesn't allow for an ultimate in configurability.

And lastly, somebody else wrote it. For those of you who had considered writing one, the task has been done. :)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
