XNOISE is a media player for Gtk+ with a slick GUI, great speed and lots of features.Unlike Rhythmbox, Banshee or itunes, Xnoise uses a tracklist centric design. The tracklist is a list of video or music tracks that are played one by one without being removed. This gives you the possibility to enqueue any track in any order, regardless if they are on the same album or not.
The tracks can be reordered at any time via drag and drop.
The media browser contains all available media in a hierarchical tree structure of the available metadata. It is easy to find a single track, artist or album by going through this tree or by just entering a search term. From the media browser, music or videos can be dragged into the tracklist to every position.
Single or multiple tracks, streams, albums or artists can be dragged onto the tracklist and be reordered. Within the playing track, it's possible to jump to every position by clicking the position bar.
Xnoise can play every kind of audio/video data that gstreamer can handle.
Xnoise was written in vala, that means that the releases are in pure C-Code for GObject.
