Description:

FALF Player is open source audio player for Unix-like operating systems (Linux, BSD, etc.). General idea is to keep player as simple as possible. One the one hand it should be free of useless crap that can be found in Amarok, on the other hand it should take the best ideas from foobar2000 and mix them with additional ideas that make work with audio player even more convenient. I'm also focused on stability and attempt to provide users with stable solutions even in svn repository.

Highlights:
- multiplaylist support
- lyrics support
- m3u support
- last.fm support
- HTTP streams support (radio)
- built-in tags' editor
- built-in equalizer
- easy transfer of tracks to removable device
- customizable accelerators
- high stability
- low memory consumption


Requirements:
- xine-lib http://www.xine-project.org
- taglib http://developer.kde.org/~wheeler/taglib.html
- qt http://www.trolltech.com/
- kde http://kde.org

Most recent source code available via svn:
svn co https://falf.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/falf falf-svn

IMPORTANT!
When migrating from 1.2 or earlier version there is need to load metadata for already added tracks. This can be done from main menu:
Settings->Reload metadata...

I really like the feature of tabbed playlists. And some advices: put all controls in toolbars. Also some controls are too small for localized strings

gentoo ebuild is available as a part of non7top overlay http://non7top.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/overlay/

i left non7top overlay in favour of arcon overlay. so gentoo users can just install arcon overlay via layman (layman -a arcon) and get an updated ebuild

How about some dcop functions? Play/pause, stop, next, prev would be useful and maybe some nowplaying.

No. I won't use dcop because it eats additional memory.

Hi there. It would be great to have a shuffle feature in FALF. Also possibility to resize/maximize window would be good.

Btw, I've made a gentoo ebuild (live SVN), it's in my overlay...

How do I listen to Last.fm after I have entered my login and password?

Report

When You enter login, password and enable last.fm support, information about everything You listen to is automatically sent to last.fm server. Listen to last.fm? What do You mean?

I want a client to listen to Last.fm music. Amarok for instance supports this (but I can't get it working), also there is an official Last.fm client at http://www.last.fm/download/. It would be nice to use FALF instead to listen to Last.fm tags.
You understand?

yes, that's radio i guess. I also tried to use the last.fm client but unfortunately that doesn't work properly. It would be nice if u can get this support incorporated in FALF player as well.

Thanks!
