What software are people using to play music on a computer? Forum poll limitations restrict us to 10, which means 9 actual selections and the "Other" marker.

Obvious candidates include:
foobar2000
iTunes
Winamp
dBpoweramp
J River Media Centre
Amarok
deadbeef
Windows Media Player
XMPlay

If I had to go with 9, it'd be these ones. Persuade me otherwise! smile.gif

mplayer (and forks)

to;
command line players (specify in the thread)

I disagree. First of all, mpd is not a commandline player- it is a daemon that can be controlled by multiple frontends be it graphical or not. I can even control it from my Android device.

Also, although mplayer is commandline based, there are multiple GUI frontends for it. There is even one included in the mplayer source tree called GMPlayer (gtk+ based). It is build if you pass the "--enable-gui" switch when running "./configure".

The separation between backend and frontend is a common design pattern in the Unix/Linux world.

That was already explained 3 times before in this thread and i happily corrected myself, also there are other non-daemons, like moc (Lets cover more ground), so whats your point?

I always thought everything is just quickly hacked together, thanks for that wisdom.

My point is that mpd should not be lumped into "command line players (specify in the thread)" like you suggested. Mpd only exposes an API for client programming. By itself mpd is useless without a client. If you are interested, here is a list.

[...]
By itself mpd is useless without a client.


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.
