View Full Version : [ubuntu] BPM analyzer

April 28th, 2010, 08:44 AM

I would like to include BPM data in all my id3 headers. I can do this one song at a time with banshee, but I have lots of songs, and it would take a very long time.

In this (http://getsatisfaction.com/songbird/topics/integrated_bpm_counter) thread I read about bmpdj and I am attempting to install this from source.

I run into problems with the make command which gives me:

I don't know what profile-clock.o is, or what package provides it.

Thank you for any help

The developers of that project have left contact details on their webpage: http://bpmdj.yellowcouch.org/aftersplash.html

I would try contacting them.

BpmDj is actually really easy to install under Ubuntu.

Just download the bpmdj-4.2.pl2-0.x86_64.rpm
from the site
(this is the 64bit package, there is also a 32 bit one available ending in i586)


then use alien to covert it to a deb

sudo alien -k bpmdj-4.2.pl2-0.x86_64.rpm

then install it with dpkg

sudo dpkg -i bpmdj-4.2.pl2-0.x86_64.deb
