Audacious. Lightweight & simple but powerful (great sound!).

Yup

Pragha is my fav. Wish it looked better in KDE though. Going to have to try out Clementine again. I used to really enjoy that one as well. It's lyric fetching ability always left me unfulfilled.

Used to be a fan of Audacious, but it's been getting, I don't know.....something of an 'also-ran' in recent years. For me, there's only one choice nowadays, since I discovered it:-

DeaDBeeF. No contest..! (And, like so many other of the best 'Puppy' applications, it's very lightweight).


Mike.

As far as my multi Media is concerned, I only work with Audacious (music). For youtube documentaries etc to record and play I use the VLC player unrivaled in its capabilities, also the SMplayer with its many configuration possibilities plays super and sharp the many videos, I also like to use a veteran and Totem (videos ) with a sharp image (display)
Xubuntu 18.04.2 Lts.

XMMS is what I've used since I started using Linux years ago and have continued to used to this day. There is a skins package in the FreeBSD ports tree with over 600 skins to match any config and it rules.

I don't care for Audacious but use it on OpenBSD as second choice.

As a side note, I recently learned in a tread about it at head-fi.com that Donald Trump is the cause of all tinnitus. I don't get involved in political or religious debate as a rule but I did not see the humor in it or spare her feelings since she thought herself witty. Damn the torpedoes, deploy the nukes.

I like the simple design and coolness of Amarok-trinity.

I like that Open Cubic Player works well on the command-line and even GUI, and has various graphic equalizers of sound waves of the song (options as linear, polar, etc.) Most GUI players don't have graphic equalizer. Again, for another of many times in years, please add it. It should've been obvious from the name it's Free/Libre/Opensource Software, and I gave the link to the page that has the source code.

There hasn't been a release of Open Cubic Player is almost a decade.
