    Music Players

    I've haven't asked this in a while and I am sure other people would like to read about it. What is the best music player out there, right now. I've tried Rhythmbox, but I don't really like it too much. Amarok, is a pretty decent player, but it quit downloading my album covers. I really don't know too much about what other choices there are now.

    the new Amarok 2 should be great. But it always seems to take too many resources to load everything on my machine to use Amarok, since its in KDE. I've been using Exaile! for quite a while, and although not quite as stable as Amarok, it gets better with every release.

    Rhythmbox does exactly what I need it to so I never bothered with anything else.

    Rythmbox does the job for me.

    My ipod runs Linux as well too, because I think the ogg format is 1337.

    Amroks album cover downloads are fixed in 1.4.9.1 (available in Hardy) Album art downloads were broken in every player that uses Amazon to download the cover art but most have fixed it now.

    tango ninga -- I don't like how Rythmbox displays my collection. Secondly, unless I am missing something there is a lack on controls for the track playing. I didn't see a stop or a pause button. Also didn't play with it too much but Banshee didn't appeal to me too much either.

    If you want something simple and low on ressources, why not go for mpd + Sonata? It's both in the repos, it'll take a little time setting up mpd but afterward, it's all goodness

    Re: Music Players

    By the way iPod support is extremely important to me. I have a 2 GB iPod and have never been able to get it to work in Linux. But I guess I will have to learn now, because Linux is all I have on my computer now. I hope I am rid of windows for good.

    Is the new Amarok in Synaptic or Add/Remove?

    Re: Music Players

    im pretty sure that all pods except for the touch and phone work in linux right now.

    just do some google searching
    ex.

    Code:
    ipod [type]  ubuntu [version]
    ex.2

    Code:
    ipod nano ubuntu 7.10


    i get tons of answers for stuff by putting my ubuntu version in the search query
