Best music players?
« on: October 13, 2013, 10:23:51 pm »
I'm using Rhythm box and Audacious on both my computers- nothing wrong with them but I was wondering if there are any others that show visualisations that play whist the music plays like in Windows media player?
My computer: Dell inspiron mini netbook using Mint.

In a world without fences and walls, who needs Gates and Windows?

Hi Melissa

You can try Clementine it's probably the best music player for Linux available in my opinion, it has visulisations but I dont think you can set to run automatically but it's easy to set it running when you start playing you can also set it to automatically show the album art of the song you're playing in the background which is what I have


Good luck



Graeme

Windows Media Player *might* work under Wine, probably too much effort though

Edit: Actually, I wouldn't bother, seems way too buggy and visualisations are broken...
