The Uzeamp is a music player capable of streaming music from a SD card.


  • Plays WAV files, 8-bit unsigned mono file at 15734Hz (the NTSC line rate).
  • Supports WAV file metadata extension for song name and artist.
  • Supports only SD/FAT16 (not SDHC for the time being) The current code is not 'fragmentation aware', meaning you must reformat your SD card before dumping a series of file on it. (I hope that will change shortly)
  • Support the SNES mouse
  • Support skins/color schemes


  • With a pad, use the the 'Start' button to start/pause songs, and the left/right shoulder to fast-forward through the tunes
  • With the mouse, press the "Skin" button to cycle through the available skins. With the Pad, use the X button.

Known Issues & Limitations

  • There's some glitches at the start of songs
  • In mouse mode, the slider is a bit buggy,
  • All WAV files must be in the root directory, no more than 12 files and no long filenames.

Converting Songs with FFmpeg

Use this command to convert a song to work with Uzeamp:

ffmpeg -i input.mp3 -f wav -bitexact -acodec pcm_u8 -ac 1 -ar 15734 output.wav

(The input file doesn't need to be an MP3 file, it should work with any format that FFmpeg supports)
