Audio Multimedia Application of the Year


Yes, we know many of these apps are not directly comparable. The real question should be, which one does its job the best.

Not directly comparable certainly is a bit of an understatement. Xmms, Audacity and K3b in the same list!?
I've decided to vote audacity baceuse it's the app that has ben crucial to making my linux adventure a real success, but it's a hard call.
I can't check now as I have already voted, but did I miss realplayer?

I am not sure if k3b should be in that category because it can be used for non audio related stuff.

The reason I put it in this category is that they seem to classify themselves as the following for Trove:

Ok, I get your reasoning.

If it fit in this category, perhaps it would be K3B, but I'm voting amaroK in this one. It's a godsend for Linux users.

I think it would be better to split the multimedia category as:-
  1. Media players (all audio and video players)
  2. Multimedia authoring (all audio and video editors)
  3. Multimedia utilities (encoders, rippers, ID3 tagging utilities etc. etc.)

Just a suggestion for next year's polls!

Thanks Harishankar - we'll certainly consider that setup for next year.

Gstreamer has come so far this year. Last year unusable ... This year I don't use anything else.

GStreamer is great, but the top for me is MUINE!!!! And it's not even in the list. It's a very very clean audio player. You get the bare minimum controls for play, select album and so on. So it does not disturb me during work.

Please add Muine and I'll vote it!
