Epris is a D-Bus service and command line client to listen to music. Unlike xmms2 or mpd, it uses GStreamer and D-Bus. It supports all formats supported by GStreamer, and can play both video and audio. It supports gap-less playback thanks to playbin2. It has an extensible command line interface, a small memory footprint, automatic deactivation, and an easy D-Bus interface for other UIs.
