DeaDBeeF - A Simple Music Player for GNU/Linux (Especially if you have an old Laptop :D)

I'm a huge fan of applications that requires lesser amount of system resources to do its task, well who's doesn't like them, right ? :). In that sense DeadBeeF is a pretty "light-weight" music player that is written in pure C++ thus it has no Gnome/GTK+ or KDE/Qt bindings either. But it integrates with your desktop and I personally love its GUI as well.

It may be a simple app, but guys and gals, playing file types such as ...

*. mp3, ogg vorbis, flac, ape, wv, wav, m4a, mpc, cd audio ... + many more is a breeze for DeaDBeeF.

*. Manage large audio albums.

*. Fully playlist support.

Main Interface, cool or what! :)...

*. Play files directly from your Audio CD, DVD, etc.

*. integration.

*. 18 band fully featured equalizer.

*. Radio and podcast support.

*. Live streaming.

*. Edit meta-tags (such as Track number/Year/Artist, etc).

*. Assign keyboard shortcuts for ease controlling... are just a few to mention.

If you use Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal, 10.10 or 10.04 and can't wait to install DeadBeeF, then open your Terminal and enter the below command. Enjoy!.
