4 - Operating
My Music Player plays audio files available on a storage unit, either flash memory (USB stick, SD card) or
HDD.
The data media are of two kinds:
1) The main media contains audio files, configuration and programming files. On this media, files must be
stored and organized in a specific and determined way for the player to operate in Advanced Mode.“
2) Additionally, it is possible to read a USB stick or SD card, looking at all the files, directories and subdirectories as a unique file system. The player will then randomly read all the files found on the storage
media.
Beforehand, the player must be configured to define the main media. Consequently, all the other media
will be considered as secondary media and will be read in Basic Mode.
Install an internal USB stick or an internal hard disk need precautions.
Connect the USB stick on the
internal connector. To install a
HDD, you need a kit.
Just insert a USB stick or a SD
card in front of the player

I.D. AL - My Music Player - Audio Player - User manual
4.1 - Selection of the Main media
The My Music Player is designed to be used as a music player offering programming facilities to automate
changes of music style, broadcast messages or adverts. Files must be organized, on the main storage
media, according to the following rules.
Four types of files are stored into three different directories:
-
Music files are stored in the «MUSIC» directory
Message files are stored in the «SPOT» directory
Playlists are stored in the «PLAYLIST» directory
Configuration files are stored in the «SYSTEM» directory
●
Music Files and «MUSIC» directory:
Music files are all copied into the directory called «MUSIC». Inside this directory, a sub-directory level is
available to organize the music files according to desired classification.
Music files can be stored in up to 999 sub-directories and classified per musical styles, mood, artist,
period…
The sub-directory to be broadcast can be selected by programming or launched using a remote control.
Directory names are made of the 3 letters «MUS» followed by 3 figures from 000 to 999 and a chosen
name.
Example :
..\MUSIC
MUS001
my file.mp3
my song.mp3
MUS002
My favorite song.mp3
the hit.mp3
the best music.mp3
MUS003 Jazz
Quartet.mp3
the jazz song.mp3
MUS034 directory name
Top of disco.mp3
Top of funk.mp3
MUS247
Best music in the world.mp3
The 3 figures define the directory number and therefore its main name from 000 to 999.
Note: The directory which is read by default on powering on can be modified in the configuration menu,
disabled or point to another media.
By default, the player reads randomly the whole current directory. Files are only repeated when all the
files present in the directory have been played.
If an action has been programmed involving a missing directory, this action will be ignored.

●
Message Files and «SPOT» directory:
Messages are stored into one single directory called « SPOT». Inside this directory, sub-directories are
created to identify broadcast situations.
..\SPOT
SPT001 directory name
message.mp3
SPT002 shop advertising
jingle_intro.mp3
message.mp3
jingle_end.mp3
SPT012 information
new product.mp3
SPT999
closing message.mp3
A sub-directory SPTxxx may contain one or several files. This way, spots of adverts can easily be
created and the files will be read one after the other.
SPTxxx sub-directories hold the files to be broadcast. All file names are allowed as long as they are
made of letters and figures. Accent and special characters are not permitted.
The name is made of 3 letters, designating the SPOT folder, followed by 3 figures from 000 to 999 and an
optional parameter between brackets.
Broadcast programs can be created with the programming software to playback messages at given
dates and times, i.e. customer announcements, news, adverts and promotions…
The directory SPOT cannot be read on manual trigger and the files do not appear in the browser through
DATA button. The message could be played using the RS232 serial link or from Ethernet.
If an action has been programmed involving a missing directory, this action will be ignored.
●
Playlist files and «PLAYLIST directory:
To complement playback of the Music directories and to facilitate updates, My Music Player manages
playlists.
A list of tracks called «Playlist» is a file created by a computer software which just lists titles of tracks to
be played. Playlist files are light files and can therefore be copied very quickly.
The music library of audio files is stored in directories MUS000 to MUS999. The playlists instruct My Music
Player which audio files must be broadcast. As playlists and audio files are stored separately, playlist
files can be updated to create a new broadcast program without the need of copying new audio files;
audio files do not have to be copied in several directories and broadcast can be easily and precisely
controlled.
Playlists are stored in a dedicated directory: PLAYLIST
Inside this directory, a sub-directory level is available to store one or several Playlists.

of the letter is not important and all value are accepted.
Playback of playlists can be programmed with the time programming software.
My Music Player reads in loop the whole selected playlist, in sequential order or random mode. In the
random mode, files are only repeated when all the files have been played.
If an action has been programmed involving a missing directory, this action will be ignored.

multi CD player, tuner …) and the amplification system, you will be able to trigger
messages, either scheduled or live remotely by Internet or remote control.
The player acts as a message box to broadcast local information or adverts.
When a command is received to cut-off the auxiliary input in order to broadcast a
message, the Auxiliary sound input fades out, down to volume level 0. After
broadcast a command to switch back to the auxiliary source is sent and volume
level of the external source fades in from 0 to the maximum level. The Fade in/out

8 - Ethernet
Via the Ethernet link, the My Music Player communicates either to
update content via FTP (SD card, USB stick or HDD) or to receive
commands in html Web server and check status and configuration
of the player.
You can use the player in a local network. An adequately
configured Modem/Router will allow remote control of the player
via the Internet.
Ethernet
Caution! Network administration requires good computer skills.
In a local network installation, the player requires an IP address. This address is set in the Option menu
(see option menu chapter). The player is then recognized on the network as a Web Server with "Internet
Explorer" or "Firefox" browsers as well as a FTP server with a FTP software such as Filezilla or as FTP
client to download files from a remote server.
In an installation where only the player is present or in a local network with external access, you must
use a Modem/Router to create a gateway between the player and the Internet.
Since the Modem/Router is configured with an IP gateway, you must declare this gateway to the My
Music Player so it can communicate outside (to be configured in the Option menu).
Note: My Music Player offers a DHCP mode to get an IP address automatically.
8.1 - Connection of the My Music Player to the local network
Hardware required:
- My Music Player
- Ethernet Hub or router
- One or more computer could also be present
Connect the player on the local network. My Music Player is like a computer with his IP address to
communicate with all other system on the network. If the network is connected to internet, you can
access to the player from another site.

8.2 - Connection of the My Music Player to the internet through an ADSL link
Connect your player to your ADSL Modem/Router with a RJ45 cable and connect your Modem to a
telephone jack fitted with an ADSL filter.
A - You have an IP address provided by your service provider
Configure your Modem/Router entering the MP3 player IP address or activate the DHCP mode, access
data to provider details (account, password …), Gateway used and the various configurations related
to your Modem.
Also set the IP and Gateway of your player or activate the DHCP mode.
Open the FTP communication ports (21) and the HTTP ports (80) in the Modem.
On a computer connected to the Internet and a browser, type the IP address of your connection. The
window of your player should be displayed.
B - You don't have a permanent IP address
Hereafter is a solution to make your player visible over the internet without using a permanent IP address.
We suggest you to use a service provider offering "DynDNS" or «NO-IP» service which is a dynamic
DNS service modifiable with every change in the IP of your service provider. For example, you can use
the service on www.dyndns.org or www.no-ip.com.
Firstly, you must open an account with the service provider and obtain your Host name, User name and
password.
Caution! Your Modem / Router must include this feature.
Configure your Router Modem accordingly and validate the DynDNS option.
The principle is as follows:
When the IP address changes, the Modem sends this information to the DynDNS server. The service
immediately carries out the modification in its database to point out the new address on the host name.
This way, the player remains visible over the Internet even in case of IP address change by the service
provider or in case of a cut-off.
8.3 - HTML Web server
Open the Web browser on your computer (for example Internet Explorer or Firefox) and enter the IP
address of the player (the IP address is configured in the Option menu of the player). The home page
should be displayed and you should be requested to enter your account and password details.
If you don’t know the IP address of your player, you can try to make a «Ping»
Open a the command software and type : ping mmp-xxxx
With xxxx = serial number of the My Music Player. (a number with 4 digits in hexadecimal) This number
is shown on the LCD when switch on.

I.D. AL - My Music Player - Audio Player - User manual
11 - Advanced Functions
The My Music Player is a very powerful device which offers many useful functions and facilities
required by professional broadcasters, background music providers and retail music administrators.
11.1 - Encoding of MP3 files for protection against copying
In order to protect the work of music providers and to comply with legal requirements set by music rights
licensing societies, My Music Player can read encoded audio files. The encoding mode does not prevent
the copying of files but no sound will be heard on a computer, a walkman or any other player not including
the decoding system. Only some ID-AL players comprise this system.
Encoding of the audio files is executed using a proprietary ID-AL software. No information is provided on
this subject. The software is also customized for music content providers. A user license is granted by
ID-AL on approval of the submission file.
A utility program is also available to read data present in the audio files, to display the name of service
provider and specific information protecting his rights in case of unlawful copies.
Please contact ID-AL to obtain full details on the encoding software.
11.2 - Management of copy scripts for automated updates
The player reads files stored on a media storage device such as a hard disk, USB stick, SD card… Music
and message files need to be updated from times to times. Updates are carried out by transferring files
from a “source” media to a “read” media
With the facility to delete, rename, move..
The « source » media can be a USB stick, a SD card, the Ethernet network.
Update can be done manually by accessing the media directly. Music providers use powerful tools to
easily and quickly update a fleet of players either through the Ethernet or by sending a physical media
that the user will insert in the player to carry out the updates.
Whichever option, update by Ethernet or through a physical media, it is necessary to provide very
precise instructions on the actions to be executed (copy, delete..). These tasks are listed in a « script »
file which includes all the actions to be executed. This “script” file must be present on the “source” media
together with the audio files to be copied.
The «script» file may also contain other information such as expiry date, copy codes to avoid copy of
files between several ID-AL players.
A proprietary ID-AL software, dedicated to the creation of script and audio file management, is available
to professional music providers. Contact ID-AL for further information.
11.3 - Password protection of updates in a unique ZIP file
In a previous chapter, we have presented the tools available to carry out remote updates. To protect the
work of music provider professionals and administrators and prevent copy /modification of files, updates
(both music files and configuration files) can be compressed in one Zip file, password protected.
The password can be configured by the administrator using a web browser through the player web
interface.
