open source software for listening to music


On WinXP, I use iTunes. It doesn't look like Apple makes an iTunes for Linux. What's the best open source mp3 player that lets you listen to cds, do downloads, etc.?

I, and most other Linux users, use XMMS. Plays almost anything you can find. MP3, OGG, and a host of other media formats. It's a clone of WinAmp.<a href='http://www.xmms.org' alt='www.xmms.org'>Visit Their Site</a>.

There are other MP3 players out there, but this is the most widely used.

Another one you might one to try out is MPlayer. It includes support for virtually any audio type you can imagine.

I use streamtuner to select and listen to Icecast streams on the web. I had to install streamripper to record streams, as it wasn't installed, but I could of set up streamtuner to use mpg123 instead.

I'd say xmms and MPlayer, I don't like GMPlayer though, I always use the KPlayer frontend to MPlayer.

You might want to look into Slimp3 server. It will have a web interface similar to iTunes for playing and managing your mp3s

Okay --- XMMS, MPlayer (w/ KPlayer frontend option), streamtuner and Slimp3.

Wow. Okay, I guess I've got some work to do. That's really terrific. Thanks for all of the suggestions. This forum is amazing.
