Quimup in mini and maxi mode,

  • Home Page:
  • Latest Version: 1.3.2 - June 2014
  • Maintainer(s): Johan Spee
  • Description: QUIMUP is a graphical client for the music player daemon (MPD) written in C++ and QT4. The program can be used with most Linux desktops (KDE, GNOME, XFCE) and is covered by the General Public License. It's GTK-based counterpart is Client:Guimup (but way behind in development. Quimup is recommended on all platforms).

The clean interface makes controlling MPD's many features easy and intuitive. The focus is on mouse handling (playlist management by drag&-drop). Playback functions are directly accessible from the system tray.

Other features:

  • Supports album art (embedded or from file).
  • Supports audio streams.
  • Songs can be listed in several modes: artists, albums, genres, year, time-stamp, folder.
  • Songs can be searched by title, album, artist or genre.
  • Support for 'media keys'.
