Users KDE y Gnome we have excellent audio players, and in the case of the German desktop, almost all of them are very powerful and allow us to manage our music collection, acting as a digital jukebox.
But many times what we just want is to play a folder of music and not an entire collection. In KDE for example, the simplest thing we have after C y Amarokit's Juk, but it's a bit heavy because every time you start it, it asks you to add a folder to play music. At least it makes me very, very annoying.
Therefore, I needed a music player, preferably written in Qt so as not to have to use Gtk libraries. Searching the repositories of Debian i met Qmmp, a player that in appearance reminds me a lot (on Windows) a Winamp, or my favorite years ago: XMPlay.
It is also very similar to Audacious (I would say it is its version in Qt) and therefore to XMMS.
Its functions are very basic, and something in favor is that it has an Equalizer and allows you to play music from a URL, as well as the ability to save and play playlists.
But you can't underestimate Qmmp. It has a plugin that increases its ability to function, including being able to manage music from an icon in the system tray, manage covers, and even integration with notifications from KDE and extra stereo.
Although this is all I need Qmmp It has tons of other options worth checking out. If you want to install it, you know, in Debian they just have to run in a terminal:
$ sudo aptitude install qmmp -y
