    JS library to access NetMD MiniDisc devices

    This is a port to TypeScript of the linux-minidisc project.

    It works either in node and every browser supporting the WebUSB standard.

    How to Install CLI (netmdcli)

    npm install netmd-js -g

    How to upload music

    There's a minimal CLI called netmdcli that I've written for testing, but the primary purpose of this library is to serve the Web MiniDisc project.

    If you want to upload music to your device using the cli keep in mind that it won't parse your audio file container, but it works only with raw audio data.

    ffmpeg will do the trick of extracting the raw data from your audio files for SP uploads. If you want to use LP2 or LP4 you'll also need atracdenc.

    SP
    ffmpeg -i youraudiofile -f s16be rawaudiodata.raw  # outputs raw audio data suitable for SP uploads
    
    LP2
    ffmpeg -i youraudiofile -ar 44100 youraudiofile.wav # 44100 16bit wav input file suitable for atracdenc
    atracdenc -e atrac3 -i youraudiofile.wav -o youraudiofile.oma --bitrate 128
    dd bs=96 skip=1 if=youraudiofile.oma of=rawaudiodata.raw # removes OMA file header
    
    LP4
    ffmpeg -i youraudiofile -ar 44100 youraudiofile.wav # 44100 16bit wav input file suitable for atracdenc
    atracdenc -e atrac3 -i youraudiofile.wav -o youraudiofile.oma --bitrate 64
    dd bs=96 skip=1 if=youraudiofile.oma of=rawaudiodata.raw # removes OMA file header
    

    Then just run

    netmdcli upload rawaudiodata.raw -f sp|lp2|lp4
