Software Description

GNU xhippo is a generic playlist manager program for a variety of UNIX sound players. It's been shown to work with mpg123, bplay, s3mod, tracker, xmp and timidity, and should work with more-or-less anything that can take a filename on the command line. It is capable of automatically deciding which player to use depending on a file's extension; the defaults are set in a config file. It uses textual playlist files, which are easily generated with the 'find' or 'locate' utilities (and are compatible with most other UNIX sound players).

  • xhippo will optionally integrate with the GNOME desktop, supporting GNOME themes and drag-and-drop, and supports specific GTK themes
  • xhippo can optionally read the ID3 tags from MP3 files, and has random play features
  • supports both German and English interfaces
  • highly configurable both at compile-time and at runtime
