Generating large music collection for testing

Discuss client development (or even MPD development if you feel so inclined), ask questions about the client libs, MPD feature requests from client developers, etc...

Generating large music collection for testing

Post by geneticdrift »


For anyone interested in testing mpd and mpd clients with large music collections I've uploaded to github this utility for generating fake music files.

Basic usage:

Code: Select all

fmf -d /path/to/cddb/dir -o /path/to/music/dir -n number_of_albums
It will read random cddb files from /path/to/cddb/dir and create and tag music files in /path/to/music/dir/ARTIST_NAME/ALBUM_NAME/ for each title.

CDDB archive can be downloaded from More detailed instructions are available in the linked github project.

It compiles on linux with gcc >= 4.7.
