    I use VLC for video, Clementine for audio, and for audiobooks I use SMPlayer because it has an automatic bookmarking feature, so if I’m listening to a 20 hour audiobook and close the player it starts right back where I was when I run the program again.

    Paired with StreamTuner2, Audacious can indeed play streaming audio from various internet stations.

    What about Amarok?

    Banshee is long time dead, Quod Libet https://quodlibet.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ is better example. Developlement is live, product is modern and more over it doesn’t have any problems with handing thousands of music files.

    I use VLC for everything. VLC player has an easy to use interface and it can play all media formats.

    I’ve played online music stations with Audacious. It’s quite easy really.

      Actually, I use Audacious for DJ work. I’ve tried “real” DJ software and much of features are pointless unless you play at raves. I volunteer at a nursing home (where there are 30 year olds, up to my age group of 60). Audacious allows quick access to my 19,000 + music collection. It allows me to use my laptop’s main screen to run the player and queue songs while I use the CRT port display the album cover and the visualization animation as a second display device for the residents to see on a 70-inch flat screen TV facing them. The tunes cross mix properly and seamlessly between songs.

      Clementine does a nice job too but takes more CPU horsepower to run and still doesn’t offer the features Audacious does for my DJ volunteer work.
