Welcome to part 2 of our Linux Media Player Roundup. Today we'll be covering a few more Linux Media Players and showing you each of them, and what makes them special. But first, I'd like to add a few clarifications from part 1.
One of our readers was kind enough to point out an extra feature in Amarok that I was unaware of the first time I tested it. It has the ability to add "pluggable" backend support for a variety of different multimedia engines, such as Xine, Gstreamer and more. I didn't find this the first time, or simply overlooked it, but I did find it the second time, which means that its issues with media playback should be solvable by simply changing the multimedia engine that it uses.
