Tickle Tunes, is a ticklish frontend to mplayer written in Tcl.Tk, by me, Tony
NEW RELEASE!! Tickle Tunes 0.7 released 09/12/2008
Tickle Tunes started as a program for playing tunes, primarly, but, of course, being a front-end for mplayer, it also plays movies! It will play a dir-full, one song, or make and play a list of songs, or play a video, and, you can change the “skin” (or, at least the colors of the window background and text). Tickle Tunes 0.7 adds support for playing DVDs, and for playing a directory recursively (playing sub-directories, as well). Tickle Tunes is brought to you by Anthony Baldwin & Baldwin Software.

If you’d like to try it out, you can download the tarball here: tcltunes0.7.tar.gz
* This should be obvious, but, just in case, Tickle Tunes requires mplayer to work. And, of course, TickleTunes requires Tcl/tk 8.5, some download options are: tcl 8.5 from www.tcl.tk download tcl8.5 from sourceforge ActiveTcl8.5
What is MPlayer? Ah, well MPlayer is an awesome, cross-platform video/audio player.
Mplayer plays .ogg, .mp3, and other popular music formats, as well as all popular video formats, such
as .mpg, .wmv, .avi, plays DVDs and audio CDs, etc. This is really quite great for watching movies or listening to music. If you get your hands on one, let me know, we might just send you gift baskets delivered. You can lounge around with your new Mplayer and delight in your delicious feast.
TickleTunes is FREE/Open Source Software,
