Thread: I need 3 features in an audio player:

    Default I need 3 features in an audio player:


    1. Native Replay Gain support
    2. A playlist that can be shuffled/randomized
    3. Last.fm scrobbling

    The only media player I could find in the repositories that had these
    three things, Audacious, doesn't work right, the display's all screwy.

    I'm on openSUSE 11.1 w/ KDE 4.

    Because Amarok 1.4's external script lags.

    Did you check the article on Wikipedia?
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Replay_Gain

    It has a nice list with media players supporting replay gain.

    I had checked that list, and I compared it to this one:

    'Last.fm - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia'
    (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Last.fm...robbler_plugin)

    The list of applications was thus greatly narrowed down to:
    Audacious (wouldn't work right)
    Banshee (didn't have a playlist that could be shuffled)
    Exaile (couldn't get it to start)
    Songbird (too demanding, and does not have global shortcuts)
    Rhythmbox (again, playlist cannot be shuffled)
    VLC (same problem, + no global shortcuts)

    Fortunately, Audacious now works. Must've been a temporary glitch for
    that session. So, problem solved.
