What is the best audio (MP3/OGG/Etc) to use under Gnome?
I was one of those Gnome-supporters and -lovers, too. Until I recently came to the conclusion that there isn't this one particularly good desktop environment. On the contrary, some Apps are good in KDE, while others just rock in Gnome. So i compiled KDE from ports. To answer your question: - Quod Libet and Rythmbox both had problems with my setup: Older machine, audio library being mounted via NFS. Both didn't manage to scan the library fast enough. This is not to say, that both needed more than 2,5 hours or crashed. Python based players aren't an option for me, especially when they rescan the entire library on startup. - xmms and bmp(x) don't behave correctly. They have a window management on their own. This is just bad, especially when you're on a tiled WM just as ion3, wmii... - I like cmus one the command line. Needs a bit to get used to it, but you'll love it if you love vi. - Right know I'm using Amarok (yes, the KDE audio player). I like listening to Podcasts and Internet radio streams, and both are handled quite nicely.
