DeadBeef: A light, beautiful and customizable audio player

We already saw a very simple and lightweight audio player called LXMusic, which comes by default in LXDE, but it does not have such advanced options as to customize it to our liking.

If we want to go a little further then we have to Deadbeef, an audio player that although it consumes a little more (about 27Mb) offers us a variety of very interesting options. From the outset, it can be quite customized at the interface level, as you can see if we compare the following image with the one that starts this article:

The columns can be modified to show the data that we want, for example. We can also find different configurations in the preferences to please the most demanding: Keyboard shortcuts, Various default Plugins, Options for tray icon, Erase from hard drive… Etc.

Deadbeef It includes by default many plugins as I mentioned, but we can download some extras from this link. To install them we just have to unzip the files and copy the ones with the extension .only~ / .local / lib / deadbeef /.

Also includes your own Equalizer, Tabs for Playlists, allows you to see the album covers and more..

Download and Installation.

    Dark Tranquility, that's how I like it, converted and without listening to silly things like you told Jordan Rudess in the interview hahahaha.

    Well, let's see if I can quickly get another computer to put Arch and install one of these players because VLC for music is not very good for me
