Anything can be strange until you understand them. Amarok was quite configurable.
DeadBeef has -
- Tabbed multiple playlists. Love these.
- Queue manager
- Output selectable for Pulse, ALSA etc.
- Basic tag editing
- Converter
- Customisable columns. I like to see media info and ReplayGain info for each track.
- Design mode which enables custom layouts
- ReplayGain support for playback and scanning/tagging (best I've seen, similar to foobar2000)
- Plugins including the amazing and beautiful Musical Spectrum display

As I said, I like Cantata and it's library management is great which is the one thing DeadBeef doesn't have but I have a system file manager and sensible organisation of music in that. Unfortunately Cantata's queue manager is weird, DeadBeef's is much better and I use it a lot.

That's right, they have two main differente purposes, If you want to manage your library music, DeadBeef is a great choice , you might try as well gmusicbrowser, i tried it and seems very powerfull and complete for manage libray music, perhaps better than DeadBeef... And as for DeadBeef, for what i saw, its like a audacious's clone (what are the main differences between them?).. Other interesting option might be foobar2000 (wine/snap), the bad thing is wine-snaps takes so long to launch for the first time.. if not were for that It would be my first choice for manage library files music.

For just listen podacsts and streaming music, Cantata, in my opinion is a better choice.

DeadBeef is more like a Linux version of Foobar2000 and I don't soil my system with Wine or snaps. Nothing like Audacious which I use for one-off plays but I dislike its library management. Cantata and Strawberry (or Clementine) are good for libraries. DeadBeef is not good for libraries but excellent for everything else. gmusicbrowser is fine as are Guayadeque and a number of orher players. They all play music!

I use catata (mpd) for one-off plays as well and for youtubes.

I made some easy scripts for that purpose.:

mpcplay.sh (open with: play music archive outside cantata library)
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash
#
#export MYHOST='192.168.1.128' # or your MPD host
MPDM="/home/user/Música"
MPDOUT=$MPDM/playOUT
PATH="/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/home/user/.local/bin"
export MPD_HOST="192.168.1.128"
export PATH
mkdir $MPDM/playOUT
find $MPDOUT/ -xtype l -exec rm {} \;
#find $MPDOUT/ -type f -exec rm {} \;

if [ -z "$1" ]
 then
 echo "nada"
 exit
 else
ruta=$(readlink -f "$1")
ruta2=$(dirname "$ruta")
filename=$(basename "$1")
 fi
clear
#mpc clear
mpc pause


A=$(find $MPDM/ -type f -name "$filename" | egrep '.*')
if [ -z "$A" ]
 then
 #ln -sf "$1" $MPDOUT/
 ln -sf "$ruta" $MPDOUT/
 mpc update
 #Sleep si se copian en lugar de enlazar
sleep 1
mpc insert "file://$MPDOUT/$filename"
 echo "no esta"
 echo "Tocando: $MPDOUT/$filename"
  else
echo "ruta=$ruta"
echo "A=$A"
  #mpc insert "file://$MPDM/$filename"
  mpc insert "file://$A"
  echo "esta"
  echo "Tocando: $A"
  #echo "Tocando: $MPDM/$filename"
 fi
mpc next
mpc play
exit


cantata.sh (Ctrl+Alt+b) -> Open cantata player
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash
#
export MPD_HOST=192.168.1.128
MPDP=/home/user/.mpd
mpd
cantata &


toggleMPD.sh (Ctrl+Alt+6) -> Toggle Cantata player (pause/play)
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash
#
export MPD_HOST=192.168.1.128

mpd &
mpc toggle &

 PID=$(pgrep "cantata")
if [ -z "$PID" ]
then
  if mpc status | grep playing >/dev/null      # If mpd is playing
then
 echo "playing"
 kstart --iconify cantata &> /dev/null
fi
 fi
exit


toggle2MPD.sh (Ctrl+Alt+7) -> Open Cantata playing next music
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash
#
export MPD_HOST=192.168.1.128
MPDP=/home/user/.mpd

mpd &
mpc next
mpc play &

 PID=$(pgrep "cantata")
if [ -z "$PID" ]
then
  if mpc status | grep playing >/dev/null      # If mpd is playing
then
 echo "playing"
 kstart --iconify cantata &> /dev/null
fi
 fi
 
 exit


youmpc.sh PLay/Loadf Youtube uri in Cantanta(mpd)
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash
#
export MPD_HOST=192.168.1.128
MPDP=/home/user/.mpd
tmpurlfile=/tmp/youmpct.txt
#line="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04rGri8dICc"


youtube-dl -i --get-filename -f best -g "$1" > "$tmpurlfile"
# 250 Para Data Safe
#youtube-dl -i --get-filename -f 250 -g "$1" > "$tmpurlfile"
TAG=$(tail -n 1 "$tmpurlfile")
extinfurl=$(head -n 1 "$tmpurlfile")

mpduri="$extinfurl#"
cadena="{\"title\":\"$TAG\"}"
echo "$cadena"
mpduri="$mpduri$cadena"
echo "$mpduri"

mpc random off
mpc insert "$mpduri"
mpc next

mpc random on
