    Well its not like Linux lacks music players,
    but something simple with good KDE integration and HiDPI support sounds like just what I need, I might just give it a go.

      It might be a meme, but I can probably count the number of native Wayland high DPI music players on... very few fingers. Especially ones with the complete feature set to support a hundred thousand tracks music library.

        DeaDBeeF is the only player with an graphical equalizer so that is my favorite mp3 player. DeaDBeeF is fast too and does not have lags with internet radios like QuodLibet has. I use web interfaces for internet radios. If you like 80's and 90' pop music, http://www.m2radio.fr/m2-80 is for you.

          Elisa is anything but player that has complete feature support. It has no settings, it dead stops track, it clears and rescans library on every start so you can't even listen to music it scanned previously because it removes it from library.

          I'm still using Amarok, it may not start as fast but atleast it works.

            All my players "have" an equalizer, even my browser. The magic is in my ~/.config/pulse/default.pa:
            Code:
            load-module module-equalizer-sink
            load-module module-dbus-protocol
            and then I control it using qpaeq

              Pulseaudio is buggy resource hog shit. A stable high end gaming/multimedia PC uses alsa, gstreamer and jackd. Gstreamer is a industry standard, pulseaudio is same shit software as gnome3, systemd and networkmanager.

                Most Qt 5 music players, eg clementine, etc... works fine in pure wayland & hi-dpi.

                    Agreed... it still has a ways to go before it's really usable. The scanning issue is annoying, as it the lack of really any settings. I also can't get any album art to appear. I'm thinking that they rely on album art embedded with tags vs. using a folder.jpg file which is supported by every client I have ever used, i.e. amarok, rhythmbox, qmmp, audacious, etc. I realize disk space is cheap these days, but not everyone wants to embed an album art image in their audio files. Seems like a big waste.

                    That said, it is a 0.1 release - so obviously has a way to go. I asked on the announcement blog if there was a place you could read about planned functionality - and I reported the above issues.

                    qmmp remains my qt based client of choice.
