I didn't know Amarok had primitive support for archives but if you can't seek the individual tracks its a tad pointless unless of course its a live concert where you might want gapless. [Do any of the engines for Amarok support gapless?]

There really isn't a point. Amarok itself makes no effort to support tarballed music, it just supports kioslaves which in turn can read tarballs. It's just an accident that amarok will read that data as audio, letting you play it. Pure coincidence.

I'd call that good design, not an accident.

Just emerged it. Does this client sort by artist or album name? (Doesn't look like it does)

mpg123 is very good. There's also a mp3 plugin for mplayer.


Does that allow me to sort/play by artist/album?

Thanks,

It's not. Foobar2k is a Windows app. You want something that gets close to it? emerge amarok. It won't hurt a bit if you already use KDE. It might hurt some if you don't use KDE since it needs kdelibs and qt... but imho... it's worth those 30 odd MB of sources.

Thanks for the help. What I really want is something close to iTunes. Namely:
1. Quick and easy search of my music library
2. Play particular album without making a special playlist

Does amarok do this?

Thanks,

Chris

I'm looking at the amarok website. Looks good (helluva lot closer to iTunes than BMP).

I use gnome and it would be a little obnoxious to install all the KDE stuff just for playing mp3s, but if that's the best thing out there I guess I have no choice!

Who ever said you need all of kde?

Code:
Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild   R   ] media-sound/amarok-1.3.7-r1  -arts -debug +flac -gstreamer -kde -kdeenablefinal +mp3 +musicbrainz -mysql -noamazon +opengl -postgres +visualization +vorbis +xine -xinerama +xmms 0 kB


Since you use gnome (and possibly gstreamer) you might wanna enable that. And you prolly don't want/need visualisations.

beep media player closed when i went to add a directory to playlist odd :S. mpd is nice though for a xmms alternative.

Look at BMPx. I'm using it and everything is great. If you enable dbus support, you can even control it from xchat or irssi. It has many other nice things.
The best music player i have used. ;)

amarok it is for me. Kickes pretty much every other media player I've used (winamp, then xmms :oops: ) round the block a few times in terms of usability. Plus the choice of audio plugin means I can play those .wma's I ripped in past days on a different OS :roll: .

MOC (Music On Console)

A very nice and easy to use music player. Just like mpd, you can detach the UI to leave the server playing music while your restart X or other...

For me, it has all the qualities I need for an audio player: light, easy to use, runs in a console :) I just don't need many plugins, albums, lyrics or so... just music :twisted:

Sorry to post again after such a spell, but I figured it was worth pointing out that another alternative is now vlc. I've been using it lately and I've found the linux version works better than the windows version(it doesn't crash on me with large playlists)

I've recently started using Listen, a GTK music player with the better features of amaroK (e.g. lyrics, album covers, drag and drop) without the KDE dependencies. So far the best player I've used.

Yep, my amarok uses a xine backend. It is the beauty.

It looks like the developers don't even support arts anymore.

Currently trying out xmms2 but most of the time I use mpd and ncmpc (until xmms2 is more mature :wink: ).
