Linux Multimedia

friend of all, the month of July before I post my first experience with linux, well after my long search is increasingly steadily for linux, now what I want to share is about Multimedia linux,

In general, the word "multimedia" means a form of merging different types of media but in the computer world the word "multimedia" is more defined as the ability to display images, sound and animation / film and therefore the discussion will be limited Multimedia columns by these three topics, but not close the possibility of a change in the future. Perhaps you have very often heard, read or even have the theme files in the computer multimedia you like your picture files and peers in *. jpg format, or maybe your favorite song files you take from the internet and *. mp3 format and collection video-clips of your favorite band in *. mpg format. Examples of these include only a small part of a multimedia file formats other where each format has advantages and drawbacks of each.

MP3 is the latest phenomenon in computer technology and sound through its presence makes us sometimes forget that there are many other sound file formats such as MIDI (*. mid format), wave (*. wav format), MOD (*. mod) and many more formats the almost-forgotten formats. Many asked me whether we can play songs *. mp3 format by using Linux, and once again I can proudly say: "I am typing this article while listening to MP3 while a friend of mine was taking some files from my computer over the network and another was disketnya format using my disk drive and everything went smoothly without any significant disruption ". Impossible you say? Please you see for yourself and realize that it is one proof that the Linux operating system is truly a multi-operating system user and multi-thread a reliable, stable and reliable. Applications to listen to sound files on Linux include XMMS, Kmp3, mpg123 and many others to *. mp3 format, while for other formats such as MIDI and Wave can use KMid, KMedia, GMedia and others and to play an audio CD in the CD drive You can use


amaroK is currently the player of my choice – it rocks. Everything I ever wanted in a MP3 Player and more. It is the clear winner in this field. In my opinion, there is nothing that beats amarok even if you look at Windows and Mac MP3 players as well.

Audacious is not among the ’star media-players’ in Linux – so many people never try it out. But those who have tried it out like it. For the sake of the article, I installed it – and I liked it. I even considered switching from amaroK to Audacious.
