I have just tested some audio players in my Lubuntu Maverick and I want to
share my experience with you. First of all, my testing machine was Asus EEE
PC 1015 pn. It has Atom N550 inside and 2 GB of memory.
Firstly, I have installed deadbeef. I don't know whether it is a bug or not
but after playing from one to three songs it stops playing at all. So this
player was removed.
Then I have read about audacious in this mail's list. I have installed it
and it looked very nice, but used ~28% of my CPU. This was too big for me,
so this player was also removed.
Then I have found decibel audio player. This one used ~18% of my CPU and had
very simple, but nice interface.
I have also tried pogo audio player. It used ~16% of my CPU.
So, now about two winners in this small compettion in my opinion. First of
them is pragha. It is very fast, has simple but nice interface, is coded in
C++ and uses ~14% of my CPU. And the second is alsaplayer. It has nice
interface, equalizer and some available plugins that can imitate winamp
style. It uses ~12% of my CPU. So I think that this is the best one for me.
P.S. All of these players use nearly the same amount of memory.
P.P.S. All digits were taken from htop utility.
