Interface to a database of CDs

Otto2 is a new branch of the original project "Otto" by Jon Ferguson, an easy-to-use interface to all your music albums. You can choose songs or full albums, or let the program pick your music randomly. It supports many music formats, databases, and operating systems, and has an integrated user directory-based music reading, to keep your and your friends' music separate and labeled. It is made to be fully usable in a home or work environment. Otto2 was written to revive the project after Jon Ferguson stopped working on it for two years. It has more playing control, more music format support, and a faster and more expandable DBI database interaction than the previous incarnation.
