Audacious is an open source audio player. A descendant of XMMS, Audacious plays your music how you want it, without stealing away your computer’s resources from other tasks. Drag and drop folders and individual song files, search for artists and albums in your entire music library, or create and edit your own custom playlists. Listen to CD’s or stream music from the Internet. Tweak the sound with the graphical equalizer or experiment with LADSPA effects. Enjoy the modern GTK-themed interface or change things up with Winamp classic skins. Use the plugins included with Audacious to fetch lyrics for your music, to set an alarm in the morning, and more.
- The GIO transport plugin is now enabled by default, supporting ftp://, sftp://, and smb:// URI protocols.
- The LIRC plugin, which was up till now missing in the Audacious 3.x series, has been made to support GTK+ 3.x and is back.
- A new output plugin has been added for OpenBSD’s sndio audio system.
- The old OSSv3 output plugin has been removed.
- A global hotkey can now be assigned to raise/focus Audacious.
- The main preferences window can now be accessed from the status icon.
- The MPRIS2 server plugin (used by e.g. GNOME 3’s media player indicator) now supports seeking and getting/setting the volume.
- Ogg-encapsulated FLAC (.oga) files are now supported through FFmpeg.
- Settings for album art fetching and the song info popup have been gathered into a new page in the Preferences window. The song info popup now appears in the GTK+ interface as well as the WinAmp interface.
- The appearance of many dialog windows throughout the program, especially those used for plugin settings, has been made more consistent through the use of the PluginPreferences engine or GtkDialog.
- Plugin names can now be translated to the user’s native language.
