Goggles Music Manager For Linux

Posted by madhavkobal on 19/11/2009

Goggles Music Manager is a music collection manager and player that automatically categorizes your music files based on genre, artist, album, and song. It supports gapless playback and features easy tag editing.

 

Goggles Music Manager

Features

  • Fast and light weight. Quick startup, no splash screen needed!
  • Supports Ogg Vorbis , FLAC, MP3 , MP4 , ASF and Musepack music files.
  • Support for AlbumArt embedded in tag or as separate file on disk.
  • Tag editing and file renaming capability (batch). One or more tracks may be edited at the same time.
  • Smart sorting with user configurable leading word filter to prevent sorting on common words like the, a or an.
  • Support for play lists. Play lists may be played in a certain configurable order, or browsed through like the main music library.
  • Export music library and play lists to XSPF,PLS,Extended M3U,M3U and CSV.
  • Clipboard & DND (drag-and-drop) support to arrange playlists and dragging to and from gnome / kde applications.
  • Uses xine multimedia library for gapless playback.
  • Written using FOX, one of the fastest GUI toolkits available. Support for FOX-1.6.x and the latest development version FOX-1.7.x.
  • Customizable icons. Either use building icons or use an existing gnome/kde icon theme.
  • Configurable user interface from minimalistic to detailed view. Full screen mode available with FOX-1.7.11.
  • Clean and fast database backend using SQLite 3.
  • Last-FM audio scrobbler support.
  • Replay Gain support (Ogg Vorbis, FLAC and mp3 with APE tags).
  • Equalizer

Basically, it’s a simple music player that does it’s job and works really fast. Other than it’s speed, I was also impressed with how little system resources it uses: 8.7 MB of RAM (on my system) and never more than 2% CPU (my music collections is something near 40.000 songs).

Please note that to install it in Ubuntu, you can’t have Nvidia 190 drivers (because libxine1 depends on nvidia185 drivers).
