    Favorite Linux Media Player?

    I used Juk since Scott first posted the source. It was really nice but it lacked any features beyond the basics, but I really like the way it handled playlists. Then I started using Amarok, and I have really been enjoying it, there are a couple of things that annoy me but overall I have been enjoying it.

    I was wondering what else everyone else uses. Lets keep it music (mp3,ogg,etc.) only. Feel free to add your player if it isn't listed.

    I like Xmms for music, Xine for video. But that could change next week :mrgreen: .

    Amarok is awesome, I love how it learns my favorite albums and keeps them in the side panel for easy access. The Album manager is very nice as well.

    I have had nary a problem with XMMS ever. I just wished that there was a half way decent EQ package that worked well with SuSE 9.1 :roll:

    JuK is pretty awesome, and I like the playlist functionality that it has. For those of you that have to have it GTK, then Rhythmbox is the one for you. Don't use the crappy version that comes with Fedora, because that doesn't support MP3, but it is a clone of I-Tunes.

    Comtux, I will agree with you that Amarok is a little unstable. I get more than the occasional crash with it but I love all the features it has. When I get too many crashes with it I usually move to Juk for a while.

    Yeah, I find that AmorK is a little unstable too. Sometimes, JuK is a pain in the butt too. But we'll always have XMMS...

    Hey!!! You guys don't mention Beep Media Player (BMP) its pretty cool to, it uses a lot of xmms for plugins and stuff like that but is pretty stable and has a lotta cool functions. It also uses XMMS skins so you don't have to worry about losing a skin you like.
