Touchscreen Jukebox Answered

Any ideas about building a PC jukebox with touchscreen? There are a couple of suggestiong online but nothing that would really stand out. Thanks

It you want something that will really stand out check out the "mountian's jukebox" there is lots of guides on how to make this model and it looks great.

I have the same idea, here's what I have so far. A laptop with a swivelling touchscreen. I will be running Ubuntu Lite or Lubuntu as the operating system and a program called SKG Jukebox to provide the jukebox interface. I will mount this in a 5' high frame with the top 1/3-1/2 tilted back on a 30-45 degree angle. I will be building the frame myself. The bottom half will be used for storage or, perhaps I'll put my bar fridge in there.


Hi T-Prime,

I'm about to start my own jukebox project and had hoped to use SKG Jukebox on a touch screen linux box, so when I found your reply here I was quite pleased.
Would you be willing to share your experience? Perhaps in an instructable?
BTW, I'm about to buy a similar cabinet for eh, well, very cheap. I like the fridge idea, maybe I'll adopt it in favor of the built-in hifhi stereo idea that I had.

Unfortunately I've been away from home for most of the last year, so this project has been moth-balled until I can get some time at home. Sorry I can't provide more info.

Thanks for your answer T, I tried using albumplayer and liked that.
But I think I'm heading towards and arcade/jukebox type thing now.
Touchjams has a nice dual display option for Karaoke that looks good

Hi. I used an Ipad and built a cabinet around it. Check out my 'ible.
