GUI based MP3 players

Thu Oct 25, 2012 1:30 am

I did look around, and i did see command line based players, but I'm just not that comfortable with command line to do all that.....are there GUI based MP3 players that I can apt-get???
Any suggestions greatly appreciated!!

Along with lxmusic install xmms-plugin-all or at least I needed that on the Pi to play internet radio URL's that I grabbed from Rhythmbox in Ubuntu.

If you have any audio issues for some programs, I don't think pulseaudio has proper permissions for everything, but I have had no problems purging pulseaudio (unlike some Linux systems that seem to require it to get alsa sound working).

Using only the basics of xmms2 (including xmms2-plugins-all) is rather easy:
xmms2 add *ogg
to add all ogg-files in the working directory.
For directories one had to use:
xmms2 radd name_of_folder
but that has changed (Still: if in doubt replace add with radd and vice versa).
xmms2 play #to start playing
xmms2 stop #to stop playing
xmms2 quit #to completely quit
xmms2 clear # to clear the playlist

moc comes with a curses interface. To start it run "mocp"

When it comes to gui players: I usually used audacious.

qmmp is another good GUI player it also supports Winamp skins (make sure the graphic equaliser is off otherwise playback will stutter).
