For what it's worth, I put an updated version on opkg.org [1]. Since
the last version, I: re-enabled seeking (UI for it still has some
bugs), made the mplayer back-end use mutagen as well, and stopped the
script that runs the program from exiting so enlightenment's start
feedback does not disappear so rapidly.
