Winamp, because Window Shade mode is the best.

"I mostly use Spotify, and for music not in Spotify's library I use Amarok.

I use Rythmbox music player, mostly because it came with Linux Mint. I tried it and it seemed to do what I needed: play music. I don't think it has any fancy features, but I don't use those anyway.

"I run Music Player Daemon on an old Apple Cube with a couple of big harddisks in software RAID1 with all my cd's in flac format.

To control the daemon I have hooked up mpc-commands to various F-keys in XEmacs on my desktop machine. Occationally I start the gmpc.

I've written a very rudimentary iPod touch friendly web-frontend that uses mpc to get information and send commands.

Oh, and a simple commandline utility that transfers a music file to the jukebox and queues it for immediate play (i.e. for ad-hoc downloaded podcasts etc.)

So far I miss two things:

Random play of albums instead of tracks
When putting a cd in, check if it already exists on the harddisk, if so, queue the album for immediate play and eject the cd. If not, transfer the cd to the harddisk and play it. (Basically combined ""play by inserting cd""/""rip inserted cd's"".

Haven't gotten around to solving those two yet."
