      terrible performance with 1.1 million audio files in library

      • 1 month ago
        Anonymous

        My entire music library is a little over 45,000 tracks. ~90% is in ogg or mp3, with a small selection of recordings in flac, shn, and wavpack. If I queued up every single track, it would take me around 2 years of continuous 24/7 listening to get through everything (lots of Classical, Free Jazz, Jam, Trance, Hindustani, Nepalese, and Arabic stuff in there). I use Strawberry or Qmmp (w/the media library plugin) on my Linux installs, and Winamp or Foobar on my Windows installs. Never encountered an issue with any kind of lag related to my collection. What are you doing with 1.1 million tracks? Like, how do you plan to hear all of them? Are you just a collector? That's an enormous amount of music and would take at least a couple of decades to get through, unless it's all Grindcore or something.

    Finding the right music player for Linux can be a personal choice, as it depends on your specific needs and preferences. Here are some highly regarded music players for Linux that you might consider:

    >Amberol: Offers a simple and intuitive user experience with essential music controls.

    >Elisa: A KDE-developed player that is fast, good-looking, and feature-rich.

    >Rhythmbox: Comes pre-installed with many Linux distributions and supports internet radio and music streaming services.

    >Sayonara Player: A customizable and lightweight player focused on performance.

    >Strawberry Music Player: A fork of Clementine, supports various file formats and playlist management.

    These players offer a range of features from basic playback to advanced library management, so you can choose one that best fits your requirements.

      Don't forget Audacious if you want a Winamp clone.

      • 1 month ago
        Anonymous

        Except the default UI of Audacious hasn't been the Winamp clone one for years, though you can still switch.

        I use Audacious because it allows me to use my music files without having to bother with tags or that "library scanning" bullshit many other players insist on. I have multiple terabytes of stuff in a complex folder structure and I'm not re-tagging that. Files and directories or bust.

        Same goes for Android music players. VLC works, but not great. Odyssey works a little better for me but still has bugs.

      strawberry has a rainbow dash music visualizer, like anon (

      Strawberry is the breasts.

      ) shows it also has nyankat. both can have frame rates up to 60 fps. dash is very cute and flies when music is playing, then sleeps when track is paused or stopped. pic related 1/2.

      Frick off with that moronic minimalist bullshit, "Artist/Title" was never a good way to organize music. What do you think an album is? Genres? Subgenres? Compilations? Your approach only works for extremely small and homogenous collections but quickly falls apart when you're listening to more than 1 genre.

    It's quite sad that cmus is mostly unmaintained. While it does everything I want, still a native pipewire support would be great. Maybe I should switch to mpd + np...something. I'm curious, does it support scripting and some kind of remote control from CLI?

    I'm using 3 different music player. It sucks. None of them are perfect.
    My favorite is actually cmus, which I use to play my music library. It's a terminal player, but very easy to use, sadly it has no multi library support. Then I use Audacious to play single music files. The third one is Winamp for my audiobooks, which imo still has the best way to define libraries, but it's kinda buggy with Wine.
    I really want to get down to just one player for everything, but all the players I tried either don't have multi library support or I wasn't able to set up the libraries in a way which suit my autism.

        True that. Love this shit. The media library plugin gets major improvements every few months, so when it's a little more up to snuff (re: a switch for prioritizing 'album artist' over 'artist'), it'll be the only audio player I use. I like Sayonara too, but it doesn't seem like it'll ever have as many plugins available for it as Qmmp.
