Looking for a Linux music player to manage large local collections? Mpz is a new open source player that does the job.
If you want to organize your music into folders, this player may be for you. It doesn’t try to index all files into the library, but treats files and folders as a library and provides a convenient way to create playlists directly from folders. Similar to Foobar2000’s album list, but not an attempt to clone.
The main feature is the 3-column UI, which allows you to quickly create playlists from folders and switch between playlists with a middle click.
Other mpz function include:
- It is built in Qt / C ++ with a fast and responsive native UI.
- Supports m3u and pls playlist format internet radio.
- Supports CUE sheets.
- Supports MPRIS on Linux for remote control.
- Consists of two yaml files
- Supports global media keys and non-global shortcuts.
How to install mpz on Ubuntu:
For Ubuntu, get the deb package and install it using Gdebi or the terminal apt command.
sudo apt install ./Downloads/mpz*.deb
(Optional) To remove the music player application, run the following command:
