A quick update for our Ubuntu readers using Foobnix: the player has a new PPA, so remove the old one and add ppa:foobnix-team/foobnix-player instead.
For those not familiar with Foobnix, this is a very interesting music player available for Linux, Windows, Mac OSX and even Android that comes with a clean design and can play formats ranging from mp3, mp4, aac, audio CDs, wma to FLAC, WavPack (WV), Musepack, CUE and many others (and can convert between audio formats). Among its features are:a huge list of built-in online radio stations;last.fm scrobbling, including for radios;customizable global hotkeys;equalizer;display album cover, lyrics;last.fm integration which can display your favourite songs, top songs from an artist, more;integration with VKontakte (VK), a controversial social network that, among others, allows users to upload (but not to download), search and stream music, kind of like Grooveshark;more!
Here are a few more Foobnix screenshots:
