Qt , EFL or GTK 3 music player recommendations?


What music player (preferably built using something that supports proper fonts scaling, like Qt 5, GTK 3 or EFL) is this forum using these days?

Audacious?

I use Audacious. On the GTK side, they switched back to GTK2 because they didn't like GTK3 theming. They also have a Qt5 interface now though.

FWIW, Audacious 3.7.1 builds fine with GTK3.

I'm trying it out now. Haven't tried any of the plug-ins yet, but so far I like it!

QMMP for audio, VLC (and, occasionally, Xine) for video.

Link fixed. H/T to dugan for pointing out the error.

I just tried QMMP 1.1.5, and I'm afraid it's not for me. I'm running it on an HTPC with the font DPI set to 160, and QMMP's UI elements are tiny.
