Some of the more interesting features in AlsaPlayer are
- Full speed (pitch) control, positive *and* negative!
This is the first Linux and only GPL player that supports this. You can scratch mp3's and even audio CD's in realtime.
- Icecast/shoutcast streaming support
- Interface plugins
Completely redefine the user interface
- Remote control
Control alsaplayer from another application
- Low latency mode
On capable soundcards latency can be as low as 1.3ms!
- Playlist/Queue support
- Plays nice with concurrent audio tools
Doesn't touch the hardware mixer
- Concurrent visual scopes
Open as many scopes as there are.
- Multi-threaded design
This results in efficient/skip free playback. You can also activate real-time scheduling for even better performance.
- Accurate scope/audio syncing
Supported file formats
- Ogg Vorbis files (.ogg)
First player worldwide that did perfect reverse Ogg playback! hehe :)
- MP3 files using MAD (default plugin for MP3)
- MP3 audio files using the mpg123 based plugin
- WAV files
- CDDA, CD Digital Audio playback (digital ripping), with CDDB lookup
- All MODULES supported by MikMod
- All file types supported by the Audio File Library
- FLAC files. A lossless compression scheme.
Supported sound systemsAlsaPlayer supports quite a few sound systems, not just ALSA, as the name might suggest. Currently we support the following APIs
A low-latency audio server, written primarily for the Linux operating system. It can connect a number of different applications to an audio device, as well as allowing them to share audio between themselves.
The next-generation audio interface for Linux. ALSA was recently merged in the 2.5.x Linux tree. It has many advantages over the old OSS interface.
The old Linux audio API. This is still widely used.
For SGI (IRIX) systems, using the SGI audio library.
Network Audio Server. X11 for audio if you will.
Esound, found in GNOME.
Nosound driver, useful for testing.
