Muxic is a minimal user interface to XMMS2. It is inspired by Winamp Classic's windowshade. It is only meant for controlling and monitoring playback, not for managing a media library or even a playlist. To actually play music, it relies on the XMMS2 (the X-platform Music Multiplexing System 2) daemon, and another XMMS2 client must be used to put some music in your playlist. Muxic's keybindings are based on a subset of Winamp Classic's keyboard shortcuts. Muxic announces track changes using Growl.
