Web interface for Boss Ogg

BoPHP is a Web interface for Boss Ogg. It plays Ogg Vorbis, MP3, and Flac files, and transparently uses SQLite as a database backend. Its artist/album/song scheme is particularly useful for large collections. It has a powerful import system based on filename and/or tags, and uses libao for output. The package currently supports OSS, Alsa, esd, arts, and others. Clients communicate via a powerful XML-RPC interface. Queue size is unlimited, and users can select what happens to the queue when it's empty or finished.
