Which audio player for KDE

Running Libranet 2.8.1 and KDE 3.1

Tried XMMS and ZINF.

Requirements are simple...
Must sound great :D
A player which plays FLAC, MP3, OGG, MPC
Sorta looking for a player which is like Winamp 2.9 and XMPlay combined (in Windows).

Doesn't need any fluff like visualization, skins, oscilloscope, etc

Of course it must support playlists, gapless mp3 and plugins would be cool. Some sort of playlist management would be nice. Support Japanese, Chinese characters would also be good.

Any ideas? Please keep instructions simple...I'm a :newbie:

Try amaroK, Noatun, Juk, but why was XMMS not up to the job?

Doesn't play FLAC or MPC, does it?

There are plugins too add FLAC and MPC to XMMS.

i like mplayer (urpmi mplayer if using mandrake 10) it is command line, and works great even without bringing up x if you desire, plays all kinds of music, as well as video (even straight to frame buffer without X being up!) now if i could only get it to play streams (.pls) from the net... oh well, xmms does it for me for now

Since your using KDE, KPlayer is a frontend for MPlayer.
It looks like every other KDE app, has all kinds of functions,
and as long as your MPlayer is codec-ed up it should play anything.
