GNU xhippo

Playlist manager

GNU xhippo is a simple GTK-based playlist manager, designed to play music using mpg123, xmp, madplay, bplay, TiMidity, tracker, s3mod or most other commandline-based players while providing a friendly, clean X interface. It is localised in both English and German. Its interface is based upon the Amiga program HippoPlayer. It supports drag-and-drop, has optional GNOME support, and has a simple text-based playlist format compatible with many other players.

from the README xhippo 3 is firmly in maintainance mode; I will continue to fix bugs if anyone finds any, but new users are strongly advised to try out the rewritten "Potamus" branch which will eventually become xhippo 4: https://offog.org/code/potamus/
