Bron: Amarok, submitter: Retype

Het programma Amarok is een populaire audiospeler voor KDE en beschikt over uitgebreide mogelijkheden. Zo kan je eenvoudig (dynamische) playlists aanmaken, songteksten zoeken op het internet en zonder enige belemmering mp3-tags aanpassen. Daarnaast kan het streamen van een KIO-bron en ondersteunt het verschillende backends zoals xine, NMM en MAS. De ontwikkelaars hebben Amarok 1.4.4 naar buiten gebracht met de volgende aankondiging:

Amarok continues to blast ahead with release 1.4.4. We're thrilled to be able to take our long association with Magnatune to new heights with the addition of an integrated DRM-free music store with full-length mp3 previews. Magnatune's "we are not evil" attitude guarantees that you can purchase awesome tunes and the artist receives half of the purchase price.

With 1.4.4 comes basic support for the Rio Karma. Many bug fixes and additions for the other media device plugins have also been made. Now Amarok is truly your "one-stop-media-device" shop, supporting nearly all the major media device's on the market.

Amarok 1.4.4 may very well be our closest to being bug free release ever! Over 100 bugs have been closed for this release, thanks in no small part to the tireless effort of our development team. Martin Aumueller and Alexandre Oliveira in particular have been on a bug squashing craze for this release, and first-time contributor, Ovidiu Gheorghioiu, has submitted a large bundle of patches and fixes to improve Amarok's efficiency and response.

On another note, we still need artists! If YOU are interested in creating artwork for the Amarok project, please mail amarok@kde.org with your proposal, or for more information about what is required.

Dit is de beste audiospeler die ik ooit gebruikt heb, goede dingen ingebouwd in een mooie interface.
En het ontwikkeld ook erg snel. Ben het totaal met je eens.....hoop nog wel dat de miniplayer skinnable word.
Inderdaad. de beste music player ooit.
Ik ga em weer eens proberen. De laatste keer dat ik em probeerde was ongeveer een half jaar geleden, en toen verslikte ie zich in mijn muziekverzameling. Bovendien crashte ie nogal eens. Ik gebruik nu exaile, maar ik vind het niet erg om een KDE app onder GNOME te gebruiken.
Inderdaad de meest veelzijdige en gebruiksvriendelijke muziekspeler ooit naar mijn mening.

Even wat advies als je xine als engine gebruikt: let op dat er in xine 1.1.1 een bug zit, waardoor amarok weigert flac te spelen. Sinds amarok 1.4.1 vraagt amarok expliciet aan zijn engine of een media formaat wel ondersteund wordt. Xine 1.1.1 speelt flac wel af, maar meldt dat het niet ondersteund wordt, waarna amarok het verder niet meer probeert. Upgraden naar 1.1.2 helpt.

(K)(X)ubuntu dapper drake gebruikers kunnen deze patch installeren:

Het staat wel minim vermeld maar n van de grootste verandering in deze versie is wel de toevoeging van het online muziek warenhuis "magnatune.com" Dit is een warenhuis voor "open" muziek die je via Amarok volledig kan beluisteren en daarna eventueel kan aanschaffen. 50% van die opbrenst gaat naar de muzikant.

Nadeel van deze versie dat hij bij mij nu redelijk vaak vastloopt en problemen geeft bij het aanmaken van de muziek collectie. :(
Dus ik ben weer terug bij 1.4.3 en ga eens uitzoeken waar het aan kan liggen.

Op dit item kan niet meer gereageerd worden.
