I have discovered a taste for DeaDBeeF

I don't know why it took me so long, maybe it is my aversion to the overly minimal, but recently, with my computer's age beginning to show showing its ugly head, I've learned to embrace the minimalism that I've been one to avoid. In this quest for peace, I've come across a not-so-new music player, that has made me a happy man. Sure, it lacks the bells and whistles (and cats) of Clementine, or the pretty face of Tomahawk, but it gets the job done and it does it without making me throw my computer into the furnace of doom.

That music player, is DeaDBeeF (which tastes nothing like meat, by the way). DeaDBeeF

There isn't much to be said about this player, which is a good thing. However a few of the highlights are:

  • A built in equalizer with Foobar 2000 preset support.
  • Playlist support.
  • Both a GTK+ 2 and GTK+ 3 interface.
  • A customizable interface.
  • Plugin support.
  • System Tray Support.

If you have never used DeaDBeeF before, take my word for it. It's great little player that can - get the job done and stay out of your way.

UPDATE: I forgot to mention, you can grab it from this PPA:
