From Nowtro Software:
Nowtro Jukebox enables your party guests to choose which music from your MP3 collection they'd like to hear without the chaos associated with giving everyone unrestricted access to your CD player or iPod. It functions just like a true jukebox, allowing users to browse artists alphabetically and make requests by typing in the number of their selection on a stylish interface reminiscent of the Nintendo/DOS era. Each guest can choose their own unique five-digit "User ID", which they use to make requests. Based on the size of your gathering, you, the administrator, can set the number of credits each user receives, and as well as the "refill time" - the amount of time it takes for a user with zero credits to acquire the maximum number of credits. When a user runs out of credits, they will be "locked out" of the request screen until their credits are automatically "refilled". Not having a party? You can easily turn the "Require ID" option off for unlimited credits without the use of IDs.

"Pointless way to spoil a party"
Version: Nowtro Jukebox 2.04
A good way of losing friends
Why would you lock out friends for playing too many songs, I'll stick to Spotify thanks
"The best ideas are always the simplest."
Version: Nowtro Jukebox 2.04
No doubt in my mind, this is the best 'front end' jukebox available right now. If, like me, you've been looking for ages for a jukebox featuring...
*Proper full screen playback
*Large album art display
*Easy and fun music navigation for nerds and noobs alike
...then you've got it here!
I love the authentic pub jukey style of making the user enter the number for whatever song they request just like the real thing and it actuall informs you when a song has been requested and enqueued, no other jukebox software on the market (and I've tested hundreds) does this so praise be to Nowtro for implementing a feature some would consider silly or meaningless.
I'll continue to use mediamonkey for 'back end' tag editing and the like and use Nowtro Jukebox for playback and parties from now on. A touch screen plasma above the fireplace in the games room through a good sound system would be bliss, good job soldier!
Only reason it doesnt get 5 stars (yet).
* All my mp3s are tagged with album art but you have to link them up again, alright for smaller collections but not quite so for music squares like me. I'm certain this feature will be implemented in future releases though and don't let that put you off.
