View Full Version : [ubuntu] GNOME music player with Xine?

August 19th, 2009, 11:52 PM
I was just curious if there was a GNOME(GTK) music player that used Xine as it's back-end.

Most of my music is in WAMLossless, and, unfortunately, Gstreamer can't play WMALossless. I've been using GNOME Mplayer up to this point, but it has been a less than ideal solution. I know I could use Amarok or some other KDE player, but I like having my desktop all nice and themed :P

You can use totem with xine instead of gstreamer. Just install the totem-xine package.

There's also gxine

Edit: There's also an awesome python script called dir2ogg that will convert your wma lossless to .ogg format. It's available through synaptic.

Well, I unfortunately haven't been able to find a Xine-based music player. I know Rhythmbox used to be Xine-based, but I was unable to find any packages for it.

Does anyone know if the Listen music player (http://www.listen-project.org/) is Gstreamer or Xine?
