MPD (Music Player Daemon)- Gapless playback (and for LAME mp3 files).- ReplayGain support (and for ID3v2 tagged MP3).- MP3, Ogg Vorbis, AAC/MP4, Musepack, FLAC, Wav, MOD formats support.- Small memory requirements (has no UI at all because of 'daemon' nature).- Many frontends (from command-line to Gnome/KDE apps).- Last.FM support throught 3rd paty program (like lastfmsubmitd).
I guess my main problem is that as a Foobar lover I'm a bit dismayed by the iTunes-iness of all the newer players. I guess I'm just gonna have to suck it up and find one I like.
Gapless LAME mp3 playback was added only in version 0.12.0 (and ReplayGain support for mp3 with ID3v2 tags), see MPD ChangeLogIf mp3 has LAME tag with delay/padding info then mpd plays this file gapless for me.
Amarok's nice but lacks customizability and LAME gapless playback, as does quod libet
is there a way to simply have a local library or database defined by, for instance, ~/music/ ?
