AmpJuke makes it possible to manage and stream your music online to several clients connected through a LAN or the Internet. In addition to streaming music, it can fetch "metadata" (album covers, images, lyrics, and track "fingerprints") automatically using various Web services such as last.fm and the.echonest. You can scan and import tags from as many tracks as you like, use favorites, and customize personal settings. Its focus is on easy navigation as well as speed.
AeonWave-OpenAL is a thin OpenAL emulation layer that uses AeonWave to create one of the fastest rendering OpenAL implementations available. OpenAL is a cross-platform 3D audio API appropriate for use with gaming applications and many other types of audio applications. Its API style and conventions deliberately resemble those of OpenGL.
ZiK is an audio player based on gstreamer. It uses the path of your audio files instead of a music library. Audio files are shown on the left panel as they would be in a browser. The right panel is dedicated to the playlist. Both panels can be shown or hidden. ZiK uses your GTK theme. All formats supported by gstreamer, CDs, and webradios can played.
Newpods can help you sync recently downloaded podcasts to your portable device. It will look through a directory tree to find podcasts that have been downloaded since the last time the program was run. It will then insert two commands into the bash history list: one to pushd to the podcast directory on your portable device, so you can clean out old files as needed, and one to copy the new podcasts to your portable device. If you're tired of copying files by hand, but don't want to use a heavyweight GUI solution, newpods might be right for you.
dudl is a collection of tools to grab, encode, and rename MP3 files, archive them, and maintain a database of all files. On top of this runs the dudld Jukebox daemon that plays your files through gstreamer. dudld's strengths are the powerful tag based filters, the capability to cope with very large collections, and the network protocol to control its operation. There is a full featured command-line client, a minimalistic GTK client, and a lirc client. Writing new clients should be easy with the supplied client libraries.
