MP3 Player Example

To play mp3s:

  1. Create a directory on the SD Card named /MP3/media.
  2. Dump all your mp3s in that directory (they can be in seperate subdirectories).
  3. Copy the .flash files located in mp3_player/flash_files of this .zip file to the SD Card directory /Altera_EEK_Applications/MP3 Player
  4. Load the MP3 player with the App Selector.

The player will recursively scan the /MP3/media directory and build a database of all the MP3 files. This will take a little time. Then it will begin playing. Any time you change the MP3 files on the card (or the player fails to open one it has in its database), it will re-scan the /MP3/media directory and rebuild the database.
