(Ubuntu)I need a music player.

I use Ubuntu 8.04.

The default music player annoys me. I've tried xmms2 and GTK -frontends with it, and they all seem to fuck up...

I'm currently running foobar2000 9.4.5 in wine.

What's a good optimized minimalistic music player?

Muine. Trust me on that.

You run an entire VM for something that runs fine in WINE?

I didn't know it ran fine under WINE :P (Just found that out now)

Bottom line is that Foobar seems to be the only media player I can handle at the moment, I've spent quite a while customizing it just how I like it.

Only one you can handle? Have you tried Muine? For that matter, what have you tried?

Amarok, Banshee, Kaffeine, Rhythmbox (I think). Haven't tried Muine, but looking at some screenies I don't think I'll like it. Will definitely give it a shot once I get Kubuntu up and running.

Foobar is just the exact layout that is best for my music habbits.

What's wrong with xmms?

I still use Winamp 2.x on Windows, because its fairly bloat free, and it doesn't fuck around at the crematorium. XMMS appears to be about as close as you can get to an open-source winamp 2.x copy.

Muine's never crashed on me. I assume you're using ubuntu? They keep breaking shit.

Yeah, I think Ubuntu broke...no program bar the default one works...when I try adding files into the playlists, nothing happens :S...I might just wipe Ubuntu and chuck on Fedora...

And, I'm with Rob, foobar is the sex.

Amarok is nice but maybe not as nice for you Gnome folk.

"What's a good optimized minimalistic music player?"

Half these aren't minimalistic, and the other half aren't optimised.
