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.
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.
Code: Select all
fmf -d /path/to/cddb/dir -o /path/to/music/dir -n number_of_albums
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.
