FTP MP3 Player


The Store and Forward “FTP MP3 Player” firmware was especially designed to support audio distribution by network, when a fast or reliable network is not guaranteed, or network access is limited. The application can use either the FTP or HTTP protocol to download configuration data and playlists with their corresponding music files, and stores them onto a USB stick. FTPMP3 then plays the downloaded music according to the configuration. The application can also be used as a standalone player, without any network connection: in this case a preloaded USB stick can be sent to the player location and simply inserted into the device for playback to commence.
