I am looking for a good program to play my mp3s and other such music files with. I am used to MusicMatch Juke box on Windows. Does linux have something similar to that? A program that would allow me to rip files from a CD would be nice as well.
There are quite a few choices for mp3, ogg players, XMMS appears to head the pack.
- xmms : has a interface similar to winamp, play all sorts of audio formats, has a lot of visualization and sound effects plugins and is skinnable. XMMS still rules.
- freeamp: it also supports a lot of audio format, skinnable. It also has a music database and a few more fance features.
- Real Player: Real Player 8 , checkout the alpha version of Real One for Linux is also out.
- Music Match: This is run on wine, so is quite slow. however is has some very nice features. But it is not availabel for download at musicmatch website. I found a copy at tucows.com a few months back.
