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. All formats supported by gstreamer, CDs, and webradios can played.


* Play files, playlists, webradios and audio cds,

    Nice and simple. Just the way I like it. No bloated music library.

    I guess it makes sense only to a developer that still listens to Brian Adamas in 2012 (!)
