• Babe, a new KDE promising music player


    I have been keeping an eye on this for some half a year and I am surprised at the fast pace of its development.
    (with you in my mind @Jeannie____ , I remember you were looking for a music player).
    A short video of its added features:

  • Hope it turns out well. All someone has to do is look at foobar2000 for inspiration, still can’t find a better player like that with the endless customization.

  • I’m pretty hooked on audacious-qt5 along with audacious-plugins-qt5 (both from the AUR) for KDE/Plasma. You can enable/disable about every plugin they make.

    It doesn’t meet @Jeannie_'s criteria but does anything, really? 😄 😄 😄

  • Babe is definitively not my new player, too feature free, too dumbed down UI, no proper menu, no eq, not even a volume control! Seems this is far from even being an alpha version. On the second run didn’t even come up with the same UI as it came up when I first started it. A promising player looks different to me.

    P.S: I am so ultra disstatisfied with the currently available linux ( qt5) players that I don’t even have installed one on my new system. If I want to listen to music, I do this via Spotify.

  • @Jeannie____ Liking QMPlay2.

    Never to old to learn.

  • Wanna play music, no videos.

  • After using many many players, I agree that most of them do too many things… I just want to play my music! 😀

    In the end I use http://moc.daper.net/about in a terminal. I know, it’s not what users will be willing to use, but as I use i3 it fits perfectly.

    Cheers!

  • @anarch < this looks awsome … good stuff i did not know of

  • Seems Babe was made for smartphones, which would explain why it has absolutely no function to control its volume and why it looks like it looks:
