Media Players...

I recently installed Fedora on my "work" machine, and I have had great results. Here at home, my wife and I have a weird assortment of computers, she uses a generic 2Mhz desktop I built from scratch and she has an Asus laptop that she uses "on the road" to store digital photos. I have a monster box that I built for working at home. We use an old Twinhead notebook for our print server. My wife uses XP, the print server runs WIN98SE. Kind of an odd mixture, sure, but there is peace and digital harmony.

Everything is setup and works great. My Linux box is a file server and a web server. We have no trouble with the mixture, but....

I like to listen to my collection of music while I work. I have tried many Linux "solutions" for playing background tunes. xmms, mplayer, realplayer, etc., etc. Then I found an app called Kaffeine. It is the best KDE app for playing music I have run accross, but it seems to get little notice.

Playlists, random play, sequential play, all the things that I have wanted in a simple music player. You can get yourself an RPM at the following URL:

It just works! Nice to find a little app like this that makes life more fun. Enjoy!
