Best combination for Www & Multimedia.

Postby Alex01UK » Tue May 20, 2014 3:30 am

I say Google Chrome & Amarok, on a 64bit OS.

Amarok is better than iTunes methinks. What do you reckon? Got a Windows version of Amarok running on 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium.

Hey, at least IE multi-threads, like Chrome... Dos FireFox do that yet? Why Knot? ;) 8) %)

I don't really know anything about Itunes I don't use Apple products.

Anyway for audio I use:

XBMC to host all media. Bubbleupnp on my Android devices and Banshee on my desktop.

If I want to take music with me (not very often) I copy a few albums to my phone. :D

Q: What do you mean by Google Chrome and Amarok, what does the browser part have to do with playing music? Maybe I'm missing something.
Forget that I misread your question.

On a real computer I use Firefox. I think my phone has Chrome.

This assumes you use just one of each. For research Konqueror is by far the slickest browser but for non research work I often use chromium.

For multimedia I tend to use Kaffeine.

Nothing really. It's the apps I use most of the time, when I am playing that is, as opposed to work. I think the point I was making was that for the majority of users use their machines for Www & media playback, and the open source options are best I think currently, but we all know that! And Windows 7 is quite good at running these apps too...

Wait. Open source and Windows. Get out of here. I would have thought MS would have a fixit for that. Isn't all open source malware? :lol:

Any reason why you use Google Chrome over Chromium? (just curious).

Most of the time I have been running 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium recently. But I use all the same opensource apps regardless of operating system booted. I need to run Virtual DJ & Ableton Live for work. At home currently running mostly Linux. On a laptop with external vga monitor on my Laptop the max screen res I get is 1024 by 768 but on Windows get a 1280 by 1024 screen res. never managed to fix. this currently soak testing myLaptop booted with lowlatency kernel light speed distribution.

Ah, but when faced with one major customer too many saying, "If we are forced to choose a single-platform corporate environment, we will choose Linux", coexistence suddenly seemed the better part of valour. Better to have those OSS apps running on Windows than Ubuntu and, Mr. B*llm*r, the door is thataway.

Perhaps they will rethink Secure boot then. Or better still respin Windows using a Linux base. "Winbuntu" has a nice ring to it.

Secure Boot seems more about collecting license fees from Linux servers than replacing them: "If we can't sell them an OS license, let's make a profit from the box some other way."

I had a vision once, that, now that it has reached end of life, MS were going to make XP open source, and call it Microsoft Linux. It could still happen................
