A tag editor (or tagger) is an application which allows users to edit metadata of multimedia files. Metadata is the data about the audio data. It lets information about the audio file such as the title, artist, conductor, album, track length, lyrics, embedded images, and other information be stored in the audio file itself.
Until today, audio has been working fine on my Raring VM. I've had a few glitches here and there, but by and large I've been able to play sound in any app. However, I've ruined several VMs previously when I've installed a MIDI sequencer like qTractor which has caused some kind of audio driver conflict, killing sound system-wide.
ZiK is an audio player based on gstreamer. It uses the path of your audio files instead of a music library. Audio files are shown on the left panel as they would be in a browser. The right panel is dedicated to the playlist. Both panels can be shown or hidden. ZiK uses your GTK theme.
