Acovel Media Player for Linux!

Unicode in Acovel

I’m pleased to announce the first preview of the Acovel Media Player for Linux. Acovel is currently limited to playing albums: bring up the Media Library, and click on the import button in upper right corner. Choose a folder containing music albums to import, and enjoy an intelligent algorithm which will analyze both ID3 tags and filenames to fill up its music collection database. Acovel’s search feature is amazingly fast (We tested against iTunes search and the results were very impressive). It makes use of the Ecere Database engine (EDB), an extremely light and simple database solution under development.

Acovel has been on hold for a while as I was attending to Linux & Unicode support in the SDK, but now that I’m back on it you can expect a lot more improvements to come in the next few weeks.

    Hi dinox,

    Thanks for trying out Acovel!

    It’s most likely looking for it in the standard LD path (/usr/lib)
    You could add a symlink there, or add . to your LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    (export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=.)

    You might run in more problems (ffmpeg / libc version troubles), I recommend you come on #ecere on irc.freenode.net for help getting it running.
