DJPlay aims to be a high class live DJing application for Linux.
DJPlay is licensed under GNU GPL
DJPlay has a new companion app. Since ID3 support has been greatly expanded in 0.6.0, BPM counts in ID3 tags are now really useful.
BPMCounter addresses this and provides a comfortable GUI application to count out and tag your file collection.
BPM counter allows you to collect a list of files to process in batch mode, tags the files, if desired, and is able to print a report of the files found and the results of the beat counting.
Users of Ubuntu can get debian builds for Ubuntu. These may lag a few days behind each release.
Fedora Core 5 users should download the provided RPMS. Follow the instructions at The Unofficial Fedora FAQ to set up additional repositories to get the nonfree stuff.
If you are in any way serious about live DJing, follow the steps at Planet CCRMA @ Home to make your system realtime-capable.
