Webplay creates from a collection of mp3s and Ogg-Vorbis files (directory, mysql or postgres database) a Web-based jukebox with support for multiple independent streams. If lame and oggdec/oggenc are available, it can change the codec and bit-rate of a file in real time to a selectable value. Each user controls their stream via a web interface and can skip back, forward or to a specific track, increment or decrement the bitrate and check the current playlist, song or bitrate. Playlists can be looped, randomized, played locally on the webserver, edited, deleted, reused and renamed.
