Replaygain? Mass tagging? Highly extensible plugin interface with amounts of plugins probably only second to Winamp and XMMS? Configurable playlist formatting?

MPD has none of these


Just to clarify a few things, MPD does support replaygain tags for FLAC and Ogg Vorbis. Also, what do you mean by configurable playlist formatting? Formatting in the way playlists are displayed? If so, then clients can display the playlist and metadata in whatever way they would like (in fact, ncmpc, gmpc and mpc 0.11.x all share similar song display formatting syntax that is very flexible).

Mass tagging... no MPD does not support this and never will.

"Highly extensible plugin interface" ... and MPD does not have this either, but in the future it will have some sort of plugin interface.

i still really like xmms, but there are some things about it that bug me a bit; also, i hear the development is kinda stagnating, so i'm emerging beep-media-player now.

EDIT: i'm playing around with it right now. it seems to be pretty buggy still, but it looks extremely promising. is there an ebuild to the cvs version some people mentioned?

Another vote for Juk. It has mass tagging features and plenty of other options. I also love its search as you type feature, it is the best feature it has in IMHO.

xmms/bmp have that, too (in the jump-dialog, press "j")

You mean the search as you type? Perhaps I wasn't very clear...

In juk if I type outkast, it will select every song with outkast in title, filename, album, artist, etc.. and only play those songs. very nice when you want to listen to only outkast, then get tired of it and want to listen to only jazz, and so you just type jazz and boom only jazz is selected. :)

Can this be done with xmms?

Major problem:

Code:
root@Fygor # emerge -vp kdemultimedia                                         ~
blah blah blah
Total size of downloads: 50,636 kB


Both QT and KDElibs are real lunkers. I _might_ try it sometime, but after trying to emerge amaroK and then having it take way too long and such, it's doubtful.

nope, search as you type works only to select single songs. but that is one amazing feature. /me runs emerge juk

EDIT: does juk have a "real name" or is it not in portage?

i try a lot of different stuff. i just already tried KDE and i'm not putting that back on my computer. there's enough good players without KDE deps.

Anybody know of any players other than XMMS or MPD that support AAC? I normally use muine and rhythmbox, but they don't support AAC :(

I'm going to break in here an throw in another one. Anyone looked at snackAmp http://snackamp.sourceforge.net/? I found it the other day and have only played with it a little. It looks like it has some good features, despite the fact it's probably the ugliest player I've ever seen. I would say it might make a good alternative except it appears to go straight to alsa and won't use a daemon, or I've just missed something.

I like ]madman. It's a xmms frontend, basically a media library. Pretty similar to juk/itunes. Powerful searching and an auto-dj based on rating, play count, etc. Also a http server.

I gave mpd and gmpc a try, and they're pretty nice. I'm using them now :)

Indeed the version in portage is too buggy to be usable. But now that people say cvs is more stable, I wanted to try it as well. After some googling I came across http://www.gentoo.pl/?id=download which has a cvs build, but trying that it turned out it has a missing dependancy for libglade. So I added that to the build and here is mine. It seems to work much better indeed!

You know, why do what's already been done? There's a CVS ebuild available through fluidportage, a nice repository by the forum's own Redeeman. Check out a howto I made on the subject at the following link:

Im surprised no one mentioned alsaplayer. I like it a lot, especially the forward/backwards speed control. Makes it easy to look for those "secret" messages. It has my favorite visualization, Synaescope, and no Gnome/KDE deps either!

Thanks, andrewski, I hadn't used redeeman's repository before and wasn't aware it had an ebuild for bmp-cvs. I searched with Google and found the one I mentioned. Result is the same... But from now on I will use fluidportage.

Rythmbox - no question. Works good. It's lean. Sure, not really very skinable, but heck, just minimize and move on...
