Re: Top 5 Linux music players

For once I agree with one of their lists.  Clementine is hands down the best I've ever used on any OS.  Foobar2000 comes close, but clementine's just so much easier than Foobar, that I'll take it first.

Re: Top 5 Linux music players

Same here, as Clementine for me is the best Ive ever used.  I also use Audacious with my older systems when I need something lighter.

Re: Top 5 Linux music players

VLC is The Best! And that is all!

Update: Unfortunately, VLC build 3.x.x became worse, than build 2.x.x sad

Re: Top 5 Linux music players

To me, a music player who can not play midi files should not be number 1 .

Audacious can, with amidi plugin
Deadbeef can with freepats plugin
VLC can with .xx...plugin ( forgot name )

your 1, 2, 3 and 5 can not

Re: Top 5 Linux music players

Thats why I use both Clementine and Audacious as between the two I can pretty much play any files I choose.

Re: Top 5 Linux music players

I'm a fan of Quod Libet. My collection of music is fairly large and not all players like to scale. Overall, it has a simple interface, but also some great builtin tagging capabilities that are also available externally as Ex Falso (companion software available bundled or separately).

Re: Top 5 Linux music players

I've got over 600 gb of music and Clementine just can't cope. It chokes almost immediately. Quod Libet is fine.

I actually really like Lollypop Music Player. I never make party lists or play lists etc. just listen to whole albums. Lollypop allows me to simply scan through album covers and start something playing within a couple of clicks. Lovely.

VLC is a great player but it doesn't offer much (anything?) in the way of a music library though, does it? I use it for video but when dealing with my music collection I need something that can organise music by genre, date, artist etc. and, ideally, allow quick browsing through album covers.

Just my preferences, of course, I know somebody who swears by VLC for audio playback.

Re: Top 5 Linux music players

You might be surprised what VLC is capable of doing and it allows you to create a music library very easily.
