View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Decent Music player.

June 20th, 2008, 12:09 PM
Recently i've started to use WinAmp on my WinXP.

Im looking for a music player with similar functionality and is Gnome friendly. So AmaroK is out the question.

I've seen Songbird online, but it looks way to much like iTunes.

Anyone have suggestions?

Try Audacious

I think I will always recomend banshee, the one in the repos is pretty old though, try this link (http://www.getdeb.net/app/Banshee)

Exaile is somewhat similar to Amarok and integrates nicely in Gnome.

Hi. You could also try BMP: GetDeb (http://www.getdeb.net/app/Beep+Media+Player), homepage (http://bmpx.backtrace.info/site/BMPx_Homepage), or search for it in Synaptic.

I second BMPx (particularly if you use last.fm/etc). It has everything, is simple, and is not bloated.

Exail, BMP, Audacious and banshee are all really good. what features are you looking for in particular?

Gotta love all those alternatives for just one type of application. There's always something that suits his needs.
