XMCD Version 3.3.0 Released

Another announcement I came across - there are binaries for IRIX 5.x/6.5.x on the official site below.

---------------------- X M C D version 3.3.0 ----------------------

Take the CD player to the nth dimension.

I am pleased to announce the release of xmcd version 3.3.0, a CD player and ripper software suite for Linux and UNIX systems. It includes two programs:

xmcd - For the X window system
cda - A shell command-line utility which also features a curses-based, screen-oriented mode

In its evolution over the past ten years, xmcd has established itself as the premier CD audio application for the X window system with an attractive, easy-to-use user interface. It is the most feature-rich CD player that runs on Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, HP-UX, UnixWare, AIX, IRIX, Tru64 UNIX, SCO Open Server, BSD/OS and most other UNIX system flavors. It also supports the widest array of CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW and DVD devices, including multi-disc changers and some older SCSI-1 drives that do not work with other player applications. As a CD ripper, it allows you to extract full-quality digital audio data from your CDs and play them real time, save them to files or pipe them to other programs for processing. Several output file formats are supported, including RAW, WAV. AU, AIFF, AIFF-C, MP3, AAC (MPEG-2/MPEG-4), MP4, Ogg Vorbis and FLAC.

Xmcd supports the CDDB(R) Music Recognition Service(sm) and the CD-TEXT technology for disc identification and information, as well as auto-tagging of MP3, Ogg Vorbis and FLAC files using this data.

Xmcd also features "wwwWarp", the ability to remote control a web browser, so that you can search and access many useful web resources and information related to the CD you're listening to. The CDDB Music Browser provides related information and links to internet sites of interest, and the Local Discography feature lets you organize, browse and play files related to your CD collection. Xmcd literally takes music enjoyment to a level far beyond the standard stereo.

There are too many features to list, so visit the xmcd web page for full information, screen snapshot and downloads:


Xmcd is FREE, Open Source Software, released under the GNU General Public License. Pre-compiled binary kits for many platforms and architectures are available for download.
