Audio Media Player Application of the Year
What do you use to listen to audio?


ncsuapex 01-08-2009 11:30 AM

no mplayer?

mplayer classifies itself as "A movie player for Linux". Yes, it can play audio, but it's not suited to be in the audio player of the year poll.


ncsuapex 01-08-2009 11:35 AM

ahh.. its really the only thing I use to listen to audio :)

I guess out of this list I would choose xmms then..

Mark7 01-09-2009 02:51 PM

XMMS2 with xmms2tray and gxmms2

Exaile - for its ease of use and playlist management

Hitboxx 01-09-2009 03:56 PM

Where is Quod Libet?

Among the given ones, I choose Songbird.

I don't use the media library applications - for two reasons:
1) I get a lot of sound files in for a short time and then erase them again. Makes no sense to waste resources updating the library constantly.
2) A lot of people - with podcasts and audiobooks (especially from the otherwise excellent do the file tagging extremely poorly, and the media library shows these files with unknown authors and authors with variations in the spelling and naming.

I voted exaile since I'm using it, but I've also used and liked mpd/sonata in the past. I guess I only changed because I distro hop a lot and mpd is sometimes a pain to set up.

xmms is the winamp of linux

anticapitalista 01-12-2009 10:20 AM

xmms still produces the best sound output on my box, but I like using mpd with ncmpc

What for those who choose mpg321 over mpg123?

And no vorbis? I use ogg123 as much as mpg321, depending on the file type.

No VLC? Its my everything-player. Couldn't live without it.

Rhythmbox moves my beats. also links well with my ipod

Used Amarok for awhile, still can't find a decent EQ for it without jumping through a bunch of hoops a la LADSPA, JACK, etc.
Ergo, back to XMMS...I hear they actually updated it a year or so ago.
