Debian Packages: quodlibet albumart
Quod libet is a very attractive digital music player (See Figure 7.6). Features include display of album covers and music file tag editing and file renaming.
Use the albumart (available as of 5 February 2005 from http://louhi.kempele.fi/~skyostil/projects/albumart/) to assist in downloading album covert art from Amazon.com to the appropriate folders in your music library. These images will be saved as folder.jpg. To use albumart simply run albumart-qt and browse to a directory holding your albums. You can the select EditDownload missing cover images to have the program download covers for all the directories lacking them. The automatic downloader only accepts exact matches when searching covers, so it may miss some directories.
There are several other players to choose from, including xmms, the traditional music player, beep, a nice variation of xmms for Gnome, muine, which supports streaming audio and the iPod mobile music player, and qvmpeg.
