Groove Basin supports Dynamic Mode which automatically queues random songs, favoring songs that have not been queued recently.

Groove Basin automatically performs ReplayGain scanning on every song using the EBU R128 loudness standard, and automatically switches between track and album mode.

Groove Basin supports the MPD protocol, which means it is compatible with MPD clients. There is also a more powerful Groove Basin protocol which you can use if the MPD protocol does not meet your needs.

Groove Basin supports Last.fm scrobbling.

Kodi, formerly known as XBMC is an award winning free and open source software media-player and entertainment hub for all your digital media. Kodi is available for Linux, Mac OS X (Leopard, Tiger and Apple TV) and Microsoft Windows, as well as the original Xbox game console. Created in 2003 by a group of like minded programmers, Kodi is a non-profit project run and developed by volunteers located around the world. More than 50 software developers have contributed to Kodi, and 100-plus translators have worked to expand its reach, making it available in more than 30 languages.

While Kodi functions very well as a standard media player application for your computer, it has been designed to be the perfect companion for your HTPC. Supporting an almost endless range of remote controls, and combined with its beautiful interface and powerful skinning engine, Kodi feels very natural to use from the couch and is the ideal solution for your home theater. Once installed, your computer will become a fully functional multimedia jukebox.

This package contains the kodi binaries.

The package is enhanced by the following packages: kodi-pvr-hts kodi-pvr-vdr-vnsi kodi-repository-kodi kodi-visualization-spectrum

The MP4v2 library provides an API to create and modify mp4 files as defined by ISO-IEC:14496-1:2001 MPEG-4 Systems. This file format is derived from Apple's QuickTime file format that has been used as a multimedia file format in a variety of platforms and applications. It is a very powerful and extensible format that can accommodate practically any type of media.

MP4v2 was originally bundled with mpeg4ip library, but has been moved into its own maintained library due to a combination of the cessation of support of mpeg4ip and the usefulness of this library on its own.

This package contains the command line frontends.

Silan is a standalone application to analyze audio files for silence and print ranges of detected signals.

It supports a variety of audio-formats and codecs by making use of libsndfile and ffmpeg/libav for reading audio-data.

Signal threshold and hold-off time can be freely configured. The output can be formatted with samples or seconds as unit or printed as audacity label file.

Qt5 front-end for mplayer and forks, with basic features like playing videos, DVDs, and VCDs to more advanced features like support for MPlayer filters and more. One of the most interesting features of SMPlayer: it remembers the settings of all files you play. So you start to watch a movie but you have to leave... don't worry, when you open that movie again it will resume at the same point you left it, and with the same settings: audio track, subtitles, volume...

streamtuner2 is a browser for radio station directories. It can fetch lists from SHOUTcast, Xiph.org, Live365, Jamendo, DMOZ, basic.ch, Punkcast. And it lists stream entries by category or genre. It reuses existing audio players, and recording is delegated to streamripper.

It mimics the original streamtuner 0.99.99, but is easier to extend because it's written entirely in Python. It's already in a stable and useable form.

VLC is the VideoLAN project's media player. It plays MPEG, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, MOV, WMV, QuickTime, WebM, FLAC, MP3, Ogg/Vorbis files, DVDs, VCDs, podcasts, and multimedia streams from various network sources.

VLC can also be used as a streaming server that duplicates the stream it reads and multicasts them through the network to other clients, or serves them through HTTP.

VLC has support for on-the-fly transcoding of audio and video formats, either for broadcasting purposes or for movie format transformations. Support for most output methods is provided by this package, but features can be added by installing additional plugins:

  • vlc-plugin-access-extra
  • vlc-plugin-fluidsynth

Aqualung is a music player for the GNU/Linux operating system. It plays audio files from your filesystem and has the feature of inserting no gaps between adjacent tracks. It also supports high quality sample rate conversion between the file and the output device, when necessary.

Almost all sample-based, uncompressed formats (e.g. WAV, AIFF, AU etc.) are supported. Files encoded with FLAC (the Free Lossless Audio Codec), Ogg Vorbis, Ogg Speex, MPEG Audio (including the infamous MP3 format) and MOD audio formats (MOD, S3M, XM, IT, etc.), Musepack are also supported.

The program can play the music through OSS, ALSA or using the JACK Audio Connection Kit.

Aqualung supports the LADSPA 1.1 plugin standard. You can use any suitable plugin to enhance the music you are listening to.

Despotify - wnpp
Open source client for Spotify
License: 2-clause BSD
Debian package not available

Despotify is an independent open source client for the Spotify streaming music platform, which provides on-demand access to music from a number of major and independent record labels. To use despotify, a Spotify Premium account is required.

The source package builds three binaries: libdespotify0, libdespotify0-dev, and despotify.

The binary package "despotify" provides two console front-ends, and one HTTP REST front-end. The two library packages are self-explanatory. I intend to investigate also building the python and ruby bindings, but I have not yet looked into that.

For answers about the legal situation and the relationship of despotify with the official proprietary distribution, please see http://despotify.se/faq/.

Eina-player - wnpp
Simple music player based on gtk3 and gstreamer
License: unknown
Debian package not available

Eina (or eina-player for avoid collision with libeina from e17) is a simple and extensible music player.

Current music players are focused on managing your music collection, while using mandatory criteria about how they organize it.

Eina does not care about it at all. If your are an organized person, chances are your music collection is organized too, and you won't like to spend your time rearranging it to follow your player's specific rules. In addition, having those players to arrange music that's randomly stored, named or tagged, is usually counterproductive.

  • Based on gtk+ 3 and gstreamer 0.10.
  • Extensible via plugins, next version will support python and javascript plugins thanks to libpeas.
  • Small memory footprint.
  • System integration with support for notifications, XDG-compilant, stock icons.
  • Follows as close as possible Gnome HIG guidelines.

Eina developer, me, is totally open to collaboration to get Eina into Debian, so ask or report anything.
