I am a new Linux Mint user (second week only) and so far I am really happy with my decision to switch. Using Windows for such a long time made me lazy and a good deal of the fun of working with a computer was lost. I always enjoyed the learning process of mastering the OS and expanding my knowledge about most. This has now returned with the switch to Mint. I still have a ver long journey in front of me, but thats half the fun
I have a question though, that I couldn answer fully so far. As several other users on this forum I have been a foobar2000 user on my windows machine. I could use Wine to bring Foobar onto my Linuxmachine, but would like to avoid it if possible. I have evaluated several players already, as well searching around the web and the forums in order to find a proper replacement, but so far the search was fruitless. Maybe someone here could give me a hint. My requirements are:
- plays MP3
- plays SID (including subtune handling)
- plays SAP (including subtune handling)
nice to have:
- plays MOD
- plays SNDH
- offers multiple playlist handling with one click switching between them.
I wonder if such a player (or plug ins for a common player) exsist. I would love to avoid switching between several players to listen to the different filetypes. The players I have tested so far where able to partly play the filetypes, some didn't support subtunes (which is not good with sid and sap since most of them have subtunes). I do not a fancy gui or bucketloads of features (apart from those mentioned) to be happy.
An alternative (which I haven investigated yet) would be a converter which could convert sid, sap, mod and sndh to mp3. If anyone has a lead to those, I would be happy for a name, link or packet name.
