This player made my day

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ever since I started using Linux I have been searching for a native music player that can handle cue files much like foobar2k. I wanted the same seamless play list control over individual song entries within a cue file.

After so many years I *finally* stumbled on one that works:
DeaDBeeF http://deadbeef.sourceforge.net/download-packages.html

I had never head of this player before but apparently it's a foobar clone and it not only works, it works beautifully. It handles every format I have too.

The interface is clean, minimal and very snappy.

I thought most players support .cue? XMMS/Audacious/Amarok/ect...

[edit] Just out of question, what did you want control over? The ability to load the .cue as a whole playlist? To load it and remove certain entries? To load multiple cue files in the same playlist? That's all been able to be done, I actually just re-built Audacious with libcue support and it works as far as I can tell.

I tried them all. Granted some I tried long ago and haven't revisited recently I could never get them to seamlessly integrate cue file entries into a play list like foobar does.

Some had features to view contents of a cue and play songs within a cue but I don't recall being able to remove/exclude elements from the play list. Audacious came closest but at the time the feature was incomplete and too unstable to be useful.

I dunno, it works for me. I can load the cue, remove entries, and play like nothing happened.

[edit] I take that back, apparently it has problems with single mp3 files. =S I wonder if the original XMMS works better, bet it does but I'm not going to bother with it. XMMS is a dead project, it's now XMMS2.

[edit2] It is a 150MB mp3... I probably could find something smaller to test but probably not.
