Hello,

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 freedb.org. More detailed instructions are available in the linked github project.

It compiles on linux with gcc >= 4.7.
