Jokosher For Windows
Mike @ 8:54 pm

A Not-So-Secret Project

With Jokosher 0.11.1 on the verge of release I think it’s time that I made my not-so-secret project slightly more public. For the past few months I’ve been slaving away to bring Jokosher to the poor unfortunate souls who, for whatever reason, are still stuck using Windows. That task is now for the most part complete, as this pretty screenshot will attest:

Testers Wanted

Jokosher’s 0.11.2 release will feature an easy to install Windows package, however I’m making a release candidate available now in the hopes that any major bugs can be discovered before the main public release. So if you have a Windows machine handy and feel like having a fiddle with Jokosher just download the installer package below. Everything you need is included in that one package, so installing it should be no different than installing any other Windows application. Then if you find any bugs please report them in the Jokosher bug tracker.


  1. Thanks for this.

  2. this would be of more interest if you would convert the application to something for “the the poor unfortunate souls who, for whatever reason, are stuck using android” as their phone operation system… while you’re at it…

  3. There’s never likely to be Android support, since Android has its own specific ecosystem rather than using the standard components that Jokosher’s built upon (GTK, GStreamer, etc.). There are vague plans for a small screen UI for Maemo/MeeGo devices (e.g. the Nokia n900) though.

  4. Hi Michael, I’m new to the world of Jokosher and am inextricably tied to the Windows operating system world. I recently downloaded jokosher_setup_0.11.4.exe to my Windows 7 home basic machine. I added an mp3 file to a new project, clicked the play button, and immediately get the dreaded General GSteamer error message. I’m wondering if there is a newer version of Jokosher for Windows. Not sure who to ask but you. Sorry to bother you, but do you have any ideas?
