Multi-user and cross-platform multimedia jukebox
DisOrder enables you to pick music tracks for play from a shared collection. When nobody has picked anything, it can play randomly picked tracks instead.
DisOrder is comprised of two main user interfaces: a web interface and a GTK+ client called Disobedience. The latter is somewhat more sophisticated but only runs on UNIX-like systems; however most features are supported by both interfaces.
You can select the tracks either by navigating through the directory hierarchy or by fast word search. It's also possible to apply tags to tracks and search by tag. Once a track is playing it's possible to cancel it if someone doesn't like it, or to pause it.
Also, the sound can be played via either the ALSA or OSS (/dev/audio) interfaces; via the Mac's native sound API; or broadcast/multicast over a LAN.
Natively, DisOrder comes with support for OGG, WAVl, MP3, and FLAC files. It's possible to add players for other file formats.
Detailed instructions on how to install and use the DisOrder utility on your Mac are available HERE.
