What Lightweight Music Player Do You Use

As title says, what do you use, ditched VLC (very good but too large for me) for something smaller.

Any suggestions !


Audacious. Easy to use, includes everything I need.

I dont mind Moc, (music on console)

Audacious and or Deadbeef kill it for lightness in the gui arena imo.

Thx @s7l . Looks like MOC needs to be updated somehow.

Go audacious as @nwg suggested, ive switched to it full time now as well.

Oh Thx, will look into it.

I have one more reason to use Audacious: it works well with py3status.


Oh, thx @nwg


Thx used it in the past, real light.
