Music Player

Post by alberto_chaos »

Hello, I've recently migrated to LMDE XFCE, and I've been searching around a music player like Banshee or Amarok. Banshee is out of question since it uses Mono, Amarok is a way to go but, if there is any alternative that doesn't requires all those KDE libraries, I would give it a try. Any comments are also appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Some recommended software (not only music players) can be found here: http://wiki.xfce.org/recommendedapps
If you're looking for something like Amarok, take a look at Clementine, a player with look & feel almost like the old Amarok 1.4 (the one from KDE3). It doesn't require KDE, only Qt 4 and some usual media libs.

I've been using Quod Libet recently and like it very much. Maybe not as full-featured as some but it suits me just fine.

May I just mention Parole, a GStreamer-based multimedia player developed specifically for Xfce. Not many bells & whistles, but good solid playing performance. It's in the repositories.

EXAILE is great.

Thanks to the shouts here I just installed Exaile. Nice! Seems to be working well on my MATE/Wheezy/OSS4 setup. Very minimal dependancies pulled in too, I like that :D

Gotta figure out to enable multimedia key support, just ticking the plugin for Gnome MM support didn't work. Overall very nice though!

Rhythmbox needs Gnome, right?
