Media Players for gnome

Filed under
Software

I got on the topic the other day or media players in Ubuntu and which did I use. There are a few that I really like, but none of them are actually installed by default. Below are three media (audio, video or both) players that I like.

beep-media-player

This is a great little media player that is very similar to the old xmms or winamp. I probably use this more than any other because it does what all software should do. It does one job and does it well. It doesn’t have a lot of extras, or support for all kinds of external hardware (as far as I know) but when I want to listen to a playlist and not have a whole lot more it does that perfectly.

To install beep you can use the command below or install the same package via Synaptic.

sudo aptitude install beep-media-player
