NAME

uadefs - FUSE filesystem that transparently converts Amiga songs to WAV files 

SYNOPSIS

uadefsmusicdir mountpoint[options] 

DESCRIPTION

uadefsmounts an Amiga music directory so that files that are transparentlyconverted info WAV files. This allows players without UADE plugin toplay Amiga songs.uadefsrequiresFUSE.

Run uadefs -hfor help. Usefusermount -f mountpointto unmount.

 

EXAMPLES

To play /amiga/songs/mod.foo as a WAV file, run:

1. mkdir -p ~/mnt/uadefs
2. uadefs /amiga/songs ~/mnt/uadefs
3. aplay ~/mnt/uadefs/mod.foo

 

NOTES

uadefs is suffers from many issues:

1. It is slow. For example, adding directories from uadefs to XMMS may onlyadd 4 songs per second. Fortunately, there are optimizations that can bedone to overcome this in the future. These methods include caching andintelligent WAV header generation that avoids synthesizing the music streamwhen the WAV plugin does file type checking.

2. It uses lots of memory. The whole song is buffered. This can be madeconfigurable and/or different in the future.

3. Subsong can not be changed. However, the WAV file should contain allsubsongs.

Fortunately, there are also benefits in uadefs:

1. Any player that can play WAV files can play Amiga songs.

2. Seeking backwards in the song is possible now, as the whole song isbuffered.

Other issues:

1. One can safely mount files under a path that is backuped when the backupsystem is not run as the user that runs uadefs. For example, ifuser foo runs uadefs, the root user that runs thebackup program does not see the files inside the uadefs. Userscan safely do uadefs mounts in their home directories whilethe system administration runs daily backup scripts.
