FUPlayer is a full featured music manager and player for the GNOME desktop. With it, you can play music from your hard drive, create playlists, do real file management using its Trash, and play, rip, and burn audio CDs. It features an interface similar to those of many modern manager-style players, but with many improvements, such as true non-modal search and browse functionality, find-as-you-type, and drag destination highlighting. It aims to be extremely user friendly and efficient to use.
SnakeBite is an audio conversion application that can convert your entire music library to MP3 in a single step. SnakeBite can convert any GStreamer-supported audio format into MP3. SnakeBite is designed for those who use libre audio formats like Vorbis and FLAC, but also need their music in the MP3 format. It duplicates an entire folder tree of audio files, but converted to MP3. The original files are not altered. Unnecessary work is avoided whenever possible.
