Subject description: Successor of BMP (and XMMS)
 

Audacious is based on BMP (and XMMS), has the same kind of interface, but with various improvements and additions.
It includes auto-detection of different non-Latin charsets.
Unlike XMMS/BMP, it comes with many "official" plugins, maintained by the Audacious developers, so you don't have the problem of having to dig up obscure out-of-date plugins...

Some screenshots are attached below.

Plugins included:
Input: AAC (mp4), Apple Lossless Audio, CD audio, FLAC, MPEG audio, metronome, tone-generator, TTA (True Audio), Ogg Vorbis, VTX (Vortex), WAV, WMA.

General: Alarm, EvDev (remote control), Scrobbler (LastFM / Gerpok), Song Change, Status Icon (in system-tray).

Output: ALSA, OSS, disk writer, LAME (mp3).

Effects: audiocompress, echo, LADSPA (if you have any plugins...), soundstretch, stereo, voice-removal.

Playlist formats supported: m3u, pls, xspf.

6 skins included (I included the default skin from BMP, as I'm not too fond of the ones that come with Audacious...).
Uses XMMS/Winamp skins.

Contains "audtool" for commandline interaction with a running instance (see "man audacious" and "man audtool").

Get it here.
Dotpet size: 1150k Extracted size: 2560k

Tips:
1) Activate the Status Icon plugin... (puts icon in system tray and hovering mouse cursor over it gives popup with current track info)
2) Disable the "Use bitmap fonts if available" option in the Appearance part of the preferences (and select DejaVu Sans for the fonts).
3) If you have a problem with non-Latin characters, look at the Playlist part of the preferences.
There's auto detection for a few languages, but you can also specify certain encodings for it to try.
I put "iso8859-8" and it fixed detection of Hebrew characters...
4) To reduce CPU usage, disable the "Enable sample rate converter" option in the Audio section of the preferences.



Extra plugins (without extra dependencies):
Contains input plugins: console (for using game-consoles), modplug (for .mod files), sexypsf (for psf files -- from Nintendo games, I think), timidity (for playing midi files)
Dotpet size: 328k
Extracted size: 710k


Additional plugins (require extra dependencies):

mpc (Musepack) plugin:
Dotpet size: 13k
Extracted size: 27k
Depends on libmpcdec-1.2.4 (dotpet: 20k extracted:48k)

wavpack plugin:
Dotpet size: 17k
Extracted size: 36k
Depends on libwavpack-4.32 (dotpet: 52k extracted: 107k)

mms container plugin:
(for parsing (the obsolete) mms:// and mmsh:// type network streams)
Dotpet size: 3k
Extracted size: 5k
Depends on libmms-0.3 (dotpet: 14k extracted: 28k)

JACK output plugin:
Dotpet size: 18k
Extracted size: 37k
requires JACK...

ESD output plugin:
Dotpet size: 10k
Extracted size: 20k
requires ESD...

amidi plugin:
Dotpet size: 16k
Extracted size 40k
Contains ALSA, dummy and fluidsynth output plugins (fluidsynth required for last...)

visualization plugins:
Dotpet size: 72k
Extracted size: 220k
A couple of them depend on libESD and libSDL


Additional unofficial plugins:

Xosd plugin (on screen display):
Dotpet size: 21k
Extracted size: 36k
Depends on xosd-2.2.14 (dotpet: 10k extracted: 18k)
(if you use this, you might want to change the font in the plugin preferences window to something like "-*-dejavu sans-medium-r-normal-*-16-*-*-*-*-*-iso10646-1" )

MAC (Monkey's Audio) plugin:
Dotpet size: 12k
Extracted size: 24k
Depends on mac-3.99-u4-b5 (dotpet: 64k extracted: 153k)

Crystality plugin (for improving the sound of mp3's -- see README in /usr/local/share/audacious):
Dotpet size: 11k
Extracted size: 30k

Hotkey plugin (for using multimedia keys):
Dotpet size: 8k
Extracted size: 18k

iTouch control plugin (also for using multimedia keys):
Dotpet size: 8k
Extracted size: 17k

Difference between above two:
Hotkey gives a couple more actions to perform (pause, jump to file).
iTouch has the "grab" option -- you press that and then press the key you want and it is set (rather than having to specify the key name manually).


Users with old machines, note that this app uses more memory (and CPU effort) than XMMS and BMP:
Code:
VSZ %CPU %MEM COMMAND
15100 0.0  7.8 xmms
27156 0.9 14.1 beep-media-play
40496 8.1 21.1 audacious

(above is with a 450MHz processor)

WOW Dougal! What a tremendous amount of work you've gone through here to bring Audacious over to Puppy! This amount of work is, well... Shocked

Normally Xmms has been my old standby in the past and I've used that in conjunction with Streamtuner for when I occasionally like to listen to net radio. Then there's the rare CD now and then. I'm really not that big on sounds though 5 years ago I couldn't dream of sitting here without a CD or net radio playing! Wink (A non-stop migraine quickly changed all of that.)

Anyhow, saw in the Beep Media thread where you'd done this Dougal and knowing your quality of work just had to install this. Saw this the other day put missed that it was you who'd posted it. Embarassed

Got to quit my jabbering and get off to installing this! I see that it has the plugin to replace Xmms for net radio. Anxious to give that a try...

Thanks greatly our fellow Puppian Friend!

Amicalement,

Eyes-Only

I just managed to get the scrobbler pluggin working in puppy 3.01 by symlinking libcurl 0.3 to 0.4, recent puppies have upgraded the lib
Code:
ln -s /usr/lib/libcurl.so.4 /usr/lib/libcurl.so.3

works on dingo with scrobbling
I needed to install libidn from here
http://www.linuxpackages.net/pkg_details.php?id=5101
and link libidn.so.11 to libidn.so.11.5.5 I also copied libscrobbler.so to /usr/lib though I'm not sure that was essential

I have this mostly working on Puppy 4.00 (with a little help from HairyWill's links) and it is great... except the double size feature doesn't work.

Does anyone else have this problem, or should I try to un/reinstall Audacious?

PostPosted: Sun 22 Feb 2009, 07:53    Post subject: dependencies missing  

When I try to install audacious, I was told that these dependencies were missing.

/usr/local/lib/audacious/General/libscrobbler.so is missing library file libidn.so.11

/usr/local/lib/audacious/General/libcurl.so is missing library file libidn.so.11

/usr/local/lib/libaudacious.so.5.0.0 is missing library file libmcs.so.1

And then when I try to open it, nothing happens.

This happened with both Puppy 4.1 and 4.12

Thanks, Dougal--yet again, you improve Puppy.

I'm a lover of BMP because of its low CPU usage. Does anybody have any anecdotal (or otherwise) comparison of A vs. BMP in terms of the CPU usage?
