Audacious is a free and advanced audio player based on GTK+. It's focused on audio quality and supports a wide variety of audio codecs, and is easily extensible through third-party plugins.

Installation

audacious is available from official repositories. Install it with pacman. If you want audio CD support, install libcdio.

Configuration

Interfaces

Note: GTK+ is now the default interface in Audacious 2.4 and above.

Audacious currently provides two interfaces:

  • Winamp classic interface
  • GTK+ interface.

One may switch between two interfaces in Audacious.

Adding Winamp skins

Adding Winamp skins to Audacious is very simple. Just copy your skin file (.zip, .wsz, .tgz, .tar.gz, or .tar.bz2 file) to either ~/.local/share/audacious/Skins (affect your user only) or /usr/share/audacious/Skins (affects every user), and then you can browse and select it from Skinned Interface tab in Preferences. Another way is dragging the skin file directly into the list view of available skins.

Tips and tricks

Audtool

Audacious is shipped with a powerful management tool called Audtool. Audtool could be used to retrieve information or to control the player.

For example, to retrieve current song title or artist, issue the following command:

$ audtool current-song
$ audtool current-song-tuple-data artist

There are also functions to control playback, manipulate the playlist, equalizer and main window. For the whole option list, see:

$ audtool --help

MP3 problems

Try to install mpg123.
