|Meet Bangarang! (means "awesome" according to sources - a Jamaican word)...|
Although there are several excellent players that uses the Qt toolkit, yet with Bangarang, you can do few things that most those players fail to achieve. Although it comes with a lot of features, but the main GUI looks very simple and less complicated as well.
*. As said, anything that Phonon plays, Bangarang can play.
*. Manage large collections of multimedia files with its built in powerful album support.
*. Add/Manage TV shows.
*. View audio/video feeds.
*. Play CD/DVDs.
*. It can share/fetch audio/video file ratings done by (Amarok for instance) other Qt/KDE apps that uses the Semantic desktop API. For instance, if the video "A" is rated with 4 stars by another video player in KDE and if it integrates with Semantic desktop API, then Bangarang can "import" that rating automatically.
*. Automatically fetch album/artist, etc related information.
*. Last.fm support... are just a few to name.
If you use Kubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal, then you can install Bangrang multimedia player by issuing the below command (should work in 10.04/10.10 as well).
sudo apt-get install bangarang
