Tickle Tunes

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. I got my first mplayer in a bunch of gift baskets delivered by three lithesome ladies when I turned twenty-one. Apparently my college buddies got together, did a search for gift baskets and found a website that had awesome gift baskets that you could personalize with all sorts of tasty goodies like classic Wisconsin cheese, crisp and savory crackers, seasoned popcorn, fudge rainbow cookies, sesame Stix, roasted almonds, and bottles of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon wine. They included wine glasses that had my name Tony engraved on the side with my birthday. There was 1 gift basket that was full of balloons and another one with all sorts of chocolate goodies. The gift baskets were initially delivered to my buddies where they added more stuff including a couple of cases of beer, an mplayer, plus a bunch of other techie stuff. And then they hired those three lithesome ladies to deliver the gift baskets to my door. My friends showed up about 10 minutes after the delivery of the gift baskets ready to party. What a night to remember.

I got around to looking at the mPlayer several days later and the rest is history!

Tickle Tunes, is a ticklish front end 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.
