Which music player do you run under Linux?

Which music player do you run under Linux?

I’m having a hard time finding someone I like. I run AIMP on Windows and have been doing it for several years. That’s the only program I’m missing on Linux.

Under Linux I run Cmus and Lollypop! But I miss AIMP :confused:

Tips are welcome. But I think I’ve been through most of them already.

Now I do not mean Spotify and similar stuff. Music player for flac, mp3 and similar files.

I am using Rhythmbox, but if look at Arch wiki there are lot more. Maybe you find one which fits your needs.

Overall I’m in a similar situation. I mostly use Clementine (or Strawberry), because it’s the least broken when it comes to local GUI music management.

I mostly use MOC.

Clementine because its the only one I can find with working gdrive support. I store all my music in the cloud and Clementine does a good job of streaming it

I mostly use terminal music players, since most of my time is spent on low power devices
Moc for local music files and ncspot is really good spotify client for the terminal

I am now very satisfied with DeadBeeF. It comes quite close to my beloved foobar2000.

Edit 3 weeks later: Got back to Audacious after all (with Kvantum manager and KvArc-theme), in the end DeadBeef could not keep up.

I use ncspot. A terminal based Spotify player.

The time of me having a local music collection is long gone. Spotify suites my musical needs.

I use ncspot together with playerctl so I can control playback with my keyboards media keys.

I use sayonara. It is in the AUR as sayonara-player. I use it like this:

But it can also look like this:

That being said, it really depends on your music workflow. Music players are one of the more divisive applications in Linux because people manage and listen to music so differently.

I know! But I will never have Spotify or anyone else either. Sorry!

I’ve had most of the music services. Do not like them! I have a lot of music on files. I like it better!

Old Spotify:

Peeked at the new Spotify as well.

YouTube Music:

I have tested them all! It’s not for me! I understand if people like music services. But I’m old school :wink:

I liked it! Thanks!

This remind me I meant to thank you for the suggestion of this under Little Know Apps or whatever the correct title of that thread is. I haven’t had time to run it through it’s paces yet, but thanks again for what looks to be a good music player.

For years my only music player has been Audacious. Haven’t seen any need to change that. It’s perfect for my needs. I don’t have big local music collection and mostly I use Audacious for listening internet radios. I have a nice collection of playlist files which I have carefully picked up during all these years. So no need to surf hours to find right channels. It’s all there!.. :slightly_smiling_face:
