RPM Jukebox

Long ago in a galaxy far, far away there existed a Flash based Jukebox hosting all the songs submitted to the RPM Challenge up until that point. It made it possible to take a random journey through the body of collected work and store any favourites in a playlist. Unfortunately it was buggy and the original maintainer stopped work on it, so it was pulled and we are left with the browser based version we have today - which while functional, does not provide the same means to discover the great music hidden beneath.

So with that in mind, I've taken it upon myself to restore the same kind of easy access in a new RPM Jukebox...

Latest release - v4.0.0 - 30/06/2020

.deb (Ubuntu, Mint etc) .rpm (Fedora etc) .tar.gz (Manual install)

Whilst developing the app, it's inevitable that I end up discovering songs that I love. Here's a sample playlist I put together


On Mac you will have to 'Ctrl-Click -> Open' the file in the Applications directory the first time you run it as I don't have an Apple Developer certificate to sign it with.

On Windows you may see a firewall warning pop-up like the screenshot below. This is due to the way the file caching works and you can safely leave the jukebox blocked by hitting cancel, it doesn't need the external access, it's just Windows being dumb.
