FALF Player
Audio
Score 71%
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...

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!

I saw this application, and thought I'd give it a try. Then I read some quite rude and stupid comments from you, and I'm left somewhat baffled. Suffice it to say, your complete lack of people skills takes away any faith in your program and your ability to support it I might have had.

why on earth does this program keeps popping out on kde-apps every few days as updated when no change at all has been made. it seems worst to me than having a 1.0x release the first week of the project, and then having 29 pre releases and a few release candidates... i guess it's all about appearances.
perhaps you should concentrate more on coding and less on bashing other projects (amarok and qxplayer comes to mind).

u don't use svn and have no idea what changes were made; when i have some time, i add new features and that's the reason why "it's popin'"; u don't pay or help me and don't have fuckin right to criticize me in this way.

since you seem to have the (fucking) right to criticize both amarok and qxplayer, it follows that you are paying both teams to develop their projects...
i admit that i have no idea of what's changed with FALF. i certainly don't use this app from svn (i don't use it at all actually) but then again an svn commit doesn't merit an "update" notice (how many apps would pop up as "updated" every day this way?).
you have misinterpreted the rest of my post, i was not "demanding" that you spend more time coding, but that you spend less time bashing other people's work. there's usually no need to pay for that...

wow! i would have never guessed that someone with your comprehension problems could find it's way to the reply button. good for you.
still, i can't help to think your laughter is somehow related to the fact you didn't understand anything i said.

A proper configure-script is really needed. install.sh is broken:

It doesn't even try to do the right thing, of course running the correct qmake manually and hacking the Makefile "works" but you can't really expect people to do that.
