simple and useful
Love it.... it's identical to Winamp, just what I wanted, thank you!! Works like a charm!
As longtime user of XMMS, I love it! Even after XMMS was abandoned I continued it's use (through unofficial patched version to add UTF-8 support) for a couple of years. What it's not good at is organizing your music collection, editing IDv2/3 tags, etc. but strictly as player I love it. I organizy my music through directory structures and use completely different tools for editing tags/metadata, etc. - the directory structure makes it easy to add songs of specific genre, artist or record recursively to playlist, searching and jumping within a massive playlist is lightning fast and that's the thing. The player doesn't need to be complicated and this classic WinAmp v. 2 clone originally duplicated in XMMS and now in QMMP is IMHO a perfect UI for a graphical audio player. Just use it as player, organize your collection into directories (./Music/Punk Rock/Dead Kennedys/In God We Trust Inc.), create playlist(s) by adding directories recursively, using QMMP only to play the music and it's perfect ;)
Happy to found winamp like player!
Feature rich but mostly abandonware. Used it for a few years after ditching Dead Beef, Audacious and a few others which want to be cataloguers. Blazingly fast when reading my long playlist, and also customizable - the ability to have global hotkeys is what I needed (just two: start/stop and next). Two features are missing: no drag/drop nor clipboard to other apps, so when I want to put select files to a thumbdrive, I have to export a playlist, open in something else, and drag/drop from there. Also, the tagger is awkward - can't do much to multiple files, have to click save on each, then for the next file it forgets everything and goes to its first page - and IDV2 tag is on page 3, very tiresome and time consuming. Can't configure it to use external tagger. There are three external commands that are sort of configurable, but actually not - one is file delete, one is replay gain scanner (that finally works, perfect!) and the third doesn't work. Its windows are behaving erratically sometimes, trying to snap to. Main window isn't resizable. The two graphical interfaces are mostly confusing, obviously a legacy feature which IMO hurts nowadays. On my Cinnamon Mint 20 it sometimes causes X.org to take 104% of its assigned processor core, mostly when I scroll a lot while switching between playlists. Sometimes I manage to kill it, sometimes have to reboot.
I Want lastfm for qmmp :((((
Its amazing player. superb quality sound produce and nostalgia of Winamp. I love it.
Just like winamp. No confusing clutter just a great music player.
Very well Done. Works flawlessly.
В целом не плохо, но Audacious больше понравился, как мне показалось более гибкий в настойке
Sehr schöne Alternative zu Winamp!
Alternativa a Audacious
gostei bastante desse music player, ele lembra bastante o quitessential media player, tem um interface muito bonita e amigavel
should be called linamp. DX very good. the only problem was with the global hotkeys. with winamp i could press ctrl+alt+start from any window i was and pause the song, and so with other hotkeys. but in qmmp i must cluck on the player and then press the hotkey or it wont to anything.. that should be fixed.
Acostumbrado a usar Winamp, Qmmp es lo más parecido a él pero para distribuciones Linux. Interfaz, lista de reproducción, ecualizador, multitud de skins, etc. Fue una grata sorpresa haberlo encontrado. Muy recomendable, ya sea porque te es más familiar el “estilo Winamp” o porque lo que estás buscando es un reproductor de audio fácil de usar.
Fast, simple and can change skins. All that I need from an audio player.
