Another of My Weird Questions (MJ8 on Linux)
« on: October 28, 2013, 04:02:57 pm »

Around 2000, I purchased JRiver Media Jukebox 8 which has served me well as my primary use has been to play my increasingly large music library. I recently tried putting it on Linux Mint Debian Edition via WINE. While MJ8 does not recognize my dvd/cd drive nor the equalizer, almost all of the other functions work fine.

My question: Can I put MJ8 onto my LMDE and use it concurrently with the not quite working yet Linux MC 19 safely until MC 19 is up and running on Linux?


This way I can still keep up with MC 19 and play my music via LMDE and totally ignore my Windows XP. I have a 160 HDD for Windows XP and a 320 Gig HDD for LMDE. I can add music via Banshee or some other Linux player into my Music files and then import them into MJ8 where I can convert them to ogg, mp3, etc files. 

Thanks for any feedback, especially for possible problems.

That should be fine. They keep separate libraries.
I have the same music folder in linux and windows under virtualbox.

You probably don't want to do any tagging. The tags are different between versions.

Bob,
Interestingly, I do use the same library folder and the genres, artists, etc do crossover when I have gotten MC 19.0.62 to run on one mp3 set of files. But thank you for the answer to my question. You gotta admit it is a "different" one.
Keep up the good work on MC 19!!! I hope that the playlists and the "Do not play" filter functions will remain in MC 19. It is nice to be able to omit Christmas music files in July!!
