If XMMS is a clone of Winamp, can it then use Winamp's plugins?
I use a 'noise sharpening'-plugin to enhance the sound quality, and I haven't found anything similar. It was originally a plugin for Foobar2000, foo_dsp_delta, but it got ported to Winamp due to its usefulness.
If XMMS can't use it or doesn't have a similar plugin, then Winamp should be ported to Linux.

iTunes is my music player in Windows Platform for its good looking, and I favor mplayer in Linux.

Amarok is more like the later versions of winAMP. The interface is a bit different, but I find it better. It also supports media player syncing. XMMS is identical to wimAMP 2.

Have you tried tunapie (http://tunapie.sourceforge.net)?

You can install it with apt-get in Debian Etch or Ubuntu.

It connects to the Winamp video and radio directory listings (as well as the xiph.org icecast directory).

(also I wrote it )

Nice. The video and radio directory lists and player is the one thing I miss about winamp. However I'm having some problems installing tunapie.

Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "src/compile", line 1, in ?
    import Tunapie
  File "/mnt/str1/downloads/tunapie/tunapie-1.3.3.3/src/Tunapie.py", line 24, in ?
    wxversion.select("2.6")
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/wxversion.py", line 149, in select
    raise VersionError("Requested version of wxPython not found")
wxversion.VersionError: Requested version of wxPython not found
I have installed wxPython 2.8

I'm afraid I have not tested tp with wxpython 2.8.. It will probably not work, hence the failure to build on your system.. You could change all the wxversion.select() lines to ">2.6" or "2.8".. If you do that please let me know how you get on by email (jamesmstone {at} gmail {dot} com).. even if it is just some more error messages.

To just get the program running, install wxpython=2.6

install from here:

http://www.wxpython.org/download-2.6.3.3.php

alternatively, if you are using debian or ubuntu you should be able to install tunapie with apt-get update; apt-get install tunapie (will install all the dependencies).

And I have Winamp that supports botnets too ;P

I catched that while I was running honeypot and when it was submitted to the Norman Sandbox for closer examination that windows binary turned out to be backdoored Winamp.exe that acted as a botnet client program.

Win killer indeed

I must be missing out on something here. I just click on whatever I want to listen to and let Linux choose which player it uses. They all sound the same to me. I do quite like watching Kaffeine though, and Totem is annoying because the volume always defaults to zero.

Oddly enough, Opera uses RealPlayer for RealStreams, and Firefox uses Helix. I must have a looksee what Konqueror is using.

Oooo... It asked me what I wanted to use. That just kinda trod all over my opening salvo. I'm going through upgrade/downgrade again hell at the moment. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it...

No, we don't. Some may *want* WinAmp ported to Linux, but there is no real need. There is a huge choice of alternative players, as discussed in this thread. Many of them behave exactly like WinAmp ... and WinAmp itself already runs under Linux in WINE. So "need" is exactly the wrong word.

Personally I find XMMS perfectly adequate for playing music in Linux. It has all the same browsing, searching and playlist support that WinAmp has.

Ewwww Audiograbber is horrible, its almost as bad as recording from the mic-in!

Anyway Winamp 5.5 is great, as a) its gapless (XMMS is far from gapless -- try playing Dark Side Of The Moon on it!) and b) it uses far less resources (about 15mb of ram) than wmp and itunes (both consume about 100mb+). Also XMMS or even XMMS2, Audacious, Zinf all lack decent media libraries.

As for my choice? I go for Amarok as its as near to perfect player on linux at the moment. The only problems it has at the moment are that it consumes too much memory (fixed in version 2 i think) and it also isnt gapless (though better than xmms!) Oh and its good for organising ur collection. For video i use totem or mplayer.

My system:
kubuntu 7.10 (although i hav switched to Gnome)
AMD 2800+ /1256/asus k8-ux mobo

Question

I'm not sure what you mean by 'gapless'.
