Linux provides more than one way to listen to music collections. The bare-bones solution is to click on a music file from within a file manager app. The high-end approach is to playback music with Amarok. Amarok is a sound-system-independent audio player with a flexible interface that uses a browser-like design.
Since we began seriously working on Amarok 2 more than two years ago, Amarok has come a very long way. Looking back at screenshots of some of the very early incarnations of Amarok 2 can be almost frightening, and it is clear that Amarok 2 has changed much since then. While the Amarok 2.0 release was in no way perfect, it was more importantly a solid foundation to work on, and Amarok 2.1 is already shaping up to be a much more well rounded music manager.
I am having a problem with Amarok 1.4.10 in openSUSE 11.1 that was not in 10.3. When Amarok is playing, the hard drive is in constant use. If something else, like a find, runs Amarok starts skipping. There is also a skip when ever I un-pause play. I dont see anything in Amarok config to increase or use a memory cache.
Hi guys,I recently bought a DAC (a TEAC A-H01S) and I cannot get any sound from the DAC when playing songs with Amarok. Everything workds fine using VLC or Clementine, but I prefer using Amarok. The configuration seems to be ok but each time I try to listen to a song, the sound comes form the internal speakers of my my laptop and not from the external speakers connected to the DAC.
I am using Kubuntu 13.10 which has Amarok 2.8.0. I quite like Amarok and would like to have it to sync my old 4th gen iPod Touch (6.1.5, jailbroken). Everything works quite nicely: Amarok recognizes iPod, lists music in it and I've been able to copy music from iPod to hard drive by using Amarok. And I also manage to copy music from hard drive to iPod. Or it seems like that.
