Xhippo is a generic playlist manager program that works with mpg123, madplay, bplay, timidity, tracker, xmp, s3mod and almost any other command-line player. It automatically decides which player to use depending on a file's extension; the defaults are set in a config file. It uses textual playlist files, which are compatible with XMMS and other audio players, and can be easily generated with standard command-line tools. It also supports GTK drag-and-drop; you can drop files or directories into xhippo from any file manager supporting the standard protocol (gmc, Konqueror and ROX-Filer all work). Xhippo can optionally read ID3 tags in MP3 files using id3lib, and has a variety of playlist randomisation and sorting features. It supports GNU gettext localisation and comes with English and German translations.
