Ymuse – GTK front-end (client) for Music Player Daemon

Last Updated on August 11, 2021


If you’ve never tried an MPD client, you might run into a few problems configuring MPD. But once you’re over this hurdle, using Ymuse is a real pleasure. It offers a good (if somewhat utiliarian) interface, rock solid performance, together with a basic feature set. As it uses MPD, we automatically benefit from gapless playback.

Our favorite MPD graphical client is Cantata. It’s true Cantata helps with configuring MPD, offers a more stylish interface, provides lots more functionality, and offers superb customization.

But Ymuse offers the essential basics, and it’s a credible alternative. It warrants our recommendation. If you’re looking for a simple graphical music player, Ymuse is just the ticket.
