Yes, it will work for any non-DRM tracks.
Hopefully Java will not be too slow for this to be anything more than a science project. I am planning a C++ port as well. But I'll continue on the Java science project to meet my original goals of exercising the language.

From this forum I know that you are an expert in writing code for iPod
serial port. I am going to develop a small program which receives data
from iPod serial port and then displays the data on iPod screen. Can
you give me any suggestion about it? Or if you already have some codes
functioning like that I need, I may buy it from you. You can contact me
at email@example.com. Thank you.
What a fascinating piece of software/hardware
Would it be possible to control this serial port ipod control software with a pic
Can it control the file selection?
What are the rules?
There is some software I wrote which would run under linux (although
I only tested under Windows), it is available at http://360.yahoo.com/shabaz_yousaf (look under "squirting ipod commands with laptop").
It shows how to send commands, and also how to monitor the response.
For the cable, I just used a USB to 3.3V serial converter cable (e.g. Nokia data cable) and the ipod cable from a griffin autopilot ipod charger. It allows you to send commands to play/fwd/rewind/etc from the DOS prompt. The commands need to be in hex, but this is documented on websites.
