We're big fans of Amarok music player at OStatic. It's a powerful open source application that lets you play music you have and find music you don't, thanks to it's integration with notable music services like Last.fm, Magnatune, and Librivox.
I have ttpod music app but not crazy about it because everything is in japanese or chinese. Is there a way to make my built in player play wma format music or a better app than ttpod that is in english?
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.
I made 2 recordings today that I need to email. One is in a .m4a format and the other is in a .amr format. The person I'm sending to is not very computer literate. I need to convert these to a format that the normal Windows player can play. How do I convert these? Also, why is one in .m4r and the other in a .amr format?
When I play music in Amarok using the Gstreamer backend, playback will simply stop ever 30 to 90 minutes and not resume until I click Next Track. Pressing Pause or Stop and then Play doesn't do anything.
When I use the VLC backend, sound will be terribly distorted and scratchy for 20 to 60 seconds after the computer was started and then continue to play normally.
