Muxic is a minimal user interface to XMMS2. It is inspired by Winamp Classic's windowshade. It is only meant for controlling and monitoring playback, not for managing a media library or even a playlist. To actually play music, it relies on the XMMS2 (the X-platform Music Multiplexing System 2) daemon, and another XMMS2 client must be used to put some music in your playlist. Muxic's keybindings are based on a subset of Winamp Classic's keyboard shortcuts. Muxic announces track changes using Growl.
BlindTux is a musical quiz game. The goal is to identify the artist, title, or year of a song by choosing an answer from among 4. The maximum number of players is 4.

localcast is designed for Mac users who want to be able to resume podcast downloads after an error or unexpected sleep, something that iTunes cannot do by itself. Systems without iTunes can use localcast as an alternative to bashpodder. localcast depends on Mac OS X personal Web sharing and on wget. With localcast, interrupted downloads can be resumed, because wget fetches the podcasts. Podcasts appear fully integrated in iTunes just as if localcast was not in use.
