Qmmp (Qt Multimedia Player) is a Qt-based audio player for Linux which resembles the appearance of XMMS (and Audacious for that matter), so users of these two players which want to have a player which integrates well in KDE will probably want to give it a try.
Jajuk is a free, cross-platform music player available for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X, written in Java. I never used Jajuk before, so I tested it for the first time today, an I'm really impressed. Let me explain.
Exaile 0.3.1. brings some pretty exiting new features (since 0.3.0):
Like we told you a few days ago, Banshee 1.5.5 (aka 1.6 RC1) got a very nice new YouTube extension but the new version also brings some other new features like Grid View and Gapeless Playback:
I've recently came across a very interesting Banshee extension which I'm sure many of you will find to be useful.
The extension is called Banshee Telepathy Extension and you can use it to share or stream music through Empathy instant messaging client with your contacts (Jabber (including GTalk) only) through a p2p protocol.
There is a huge number of audio players for GNOME which strive to offer as many features as possible, with Banshee, Exaile or Rhythmbox currently being the most popular for this matter.
Banshee 1.5.1 (aka 1.6 Beta 2) has been released, bringing important changes, such as an Auto DJ mode, three new shuffle modes, support for WebOS devices (like Palm) and support for the Samsung Galaxy Android phones.
Amarok 2.2 RC 1 was released a few days ago. For complete changelog, visit this page.
Exaile is a music manager and player for GTK+ written in Python. I recently wrote about the newly released 0.3.0 which is a complete re-write of Exaile and because of that, there were quite a few bugs.
Rhythmbox, the default audio player in Ubuntu was updated recently to version 0.12.4. Among the changes:
Gejengel is an Linux audio player which focuses on performance and simplicity, yet with a nice set of features.
Some key features:
* Easy to use
* Properly handles compilation albums (even if album artist tag is not set)
* Lean and fast (low on dependencies)
Audacious is a free, lightweight advanced audio player based on GTK2 which runs on Linux and many other *nix platforms and is focused on audio quality and supporting a wide range of audio codecs. Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope comes with Audacious 1.5.1 while version 2.1.0 is already available for download so if you really like Audacious, I bet you can't wait to upgrade.
CMus (C* Music Player) is an ncurses-based audio player that runs in a shell, with no need for an X server which is very configurable with Vi-like commands, multiple views and keyboard shortcuts. It supports various audio formats, including Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, MP3, WAV, AAC or WMA.
Banshee is one of the popular audio players for GNOME, and maybe the first alternative to Rhythmbox, the default player coming with this desktop environment. Banshee has made some amazing things in the last year, especially since 1.0 came out. Each new release brings something new, it get more stable and new features are added.
It's been a while since I had a look at Songbird, and that was when 1.0 came out. The new release was put out a little earlier this month and comes with a brand new equalizer, a new mode to auto-organise media files included in the collection and Last.fm radio integration.
