A good media player


Something that will search for, organize, and play music on Linux.

XMMS is the media player I use. The only bad thing abut it is that it doesn't play MP3's with the stock equipment I've had. I must get my own plugin (may steal it from Lindows).

Its definately got to be Macromedia Dreamweaver MX, and Flash MX - These programs rock, and its such a shame that Macromedia have ignored the Linux user base...

*sigh* lol

I tell ya....if Photoshop would be ported to Linux, I would really have no reason to keep Windoz. It's pretty much the only thing that I use Windoz for.
Everything else that I once did on windoz I can do in Linux now.

I saw someone's sig that said something to the effect of "I'm close to being Macroshaft free".......yep.....that's me too.

It's a good feeling

XMMS is still not winamp. I want a winamp style media list to organize my stuff in XMMS.

Bummer.

what do you mean by "media list to organize my stuff"??

I use Kaudiocreator to rip the cd's as ogg files and it places the cd's in a nice folder with the band name and then another folder with the album title.

That's pretty organized for me at least. hahaha

Every Linux flavor I've tried short of Lndows didn't have a MP3 encoder, but only a placeholder. My search for RPMs for XMMS to handle MP3s also come up empty handed. Am I looking wrong or something?

Anyway, compile tools under Mandrake 9 and 9.2 sucks. They just plain don't work. Could it be a bug?

No not a bug it must be the way you installed it. Left some option off or something. The last fresh install of 9.2 I was compiling in minutes just fine. No problems. I wrote this script to compile and load program that arn't included with the distro. When it finished everything work the first time. It compiles 4 different programs and loads over 100 more. As far as mp3 MDK plays mp3 just fine out of the box as for encoding ya you have to download a program for that. A great place to look for software is rpm.pbone.net.

Freakygeek55: Have you tried Kaudiocreator (I think that's the name)? I ripped some cd's and it made one folder under /home called Music. Every album is in a serperate folder though. At least it organizes it for me.

I'm too lazy to do it too....
