There's always room for nitpickery over whether e.g. Squeezebox Controller is a computer running Linux, or just a remote control for the server on your computer. Or whether iDevices are computers. I have no idea whether the troublesome solutions have enough users around here for this to be any issue.
sooner or later the distinction between cloud/local would very likely be way more interesting
Penultimate revision for the Unix list.
Why have you removed Audacious ? Did I miss anything ?
with such generalization i would then changefrom;mpd (and clients)mplayer (and forks)to;command line players (specify in the thread)
Penultimate revision for the Unix list. If you want to add/change anything at this point, tell me what you think should be replaced, not just what should be added. I'm happy with the list as it stands...
mpd is not a commandline player- it is a daemon that can be controlled by multiple frontends be it graphical or not.
The separation between backend and frontend is a common design pattern in the Unix/Linux world.

My point is that mpd should not be lumped into "command line players (specify in the thread)" [...]By itself mpd is useless without a client.
As the Windows list hasn't changed, and I'm especially content with it, I'm going to put that one up now.
But the suggestion is to take mpd OUT of the list, and CLI players IN. As far as I see, you just provided a worthy argument for the first part of this.
maybe add JPLAY?I wonder how many people will choose this...
