Linux Media Player Roundup - Part 5

Filed under
Software

Welcome to part 5 of our Linux Media Player Roundup! Today we'll be going over several more media players for you to consider.

For those of you waiting for me to get to the couple of players I missed earlier in the series (speaking alphabetically of course), I'm working on getting my hands on them for testing and should have them reviewed no later than my posting of part 8, which is looking to be the 19th of December.

Noatun

Noatun is a KDE music player apparently designed to be the little brother to Juk, Amarok and Kaffeine because it really doesn't do much more than either Juk or Kaffeine does, and in fact, in many ways does less. It's so redundant in so many ways to what those other two offer, that if you took both of them, mixed them together into a pot and ladled out half the features, you'd have Noatun.

Refracta 8.0 Is a Pint-Sized Powerhouse

Refracta is a somewhat obscure Linux distribution that offers exceptional functionality and stability. Obscurity is not always a bad thing when it comes to Linux distros. You can find some very worthwhile alternatives to your current operating system. Refracta is a big surprise in a small package. Many look-alike desktop distros are difficult to distinguish from run-of-the-mill garden varieties. Others offer new adopters something unique that makes using them fun and productive. Refracta is one of the few full-service Linux distros that makes an easy and more convenient replacement for pocket Linux options such as Puppy Linux. Not all Linux distros that install to a USB drive -- and have the ability to save files and system settings in a persistent mode -- work equally well. Read more
