Zinf is an extensible, cross-platform audio player formerly known as Free Amp. As per the zinf web site "Zinf is based on the FreeAmp source code. However, AMP is a trademark of PlayMedia Systems, Inc., and therefore the original name of the project cannot be used any longer. On this website the old project will be referred to as FreeA*p." Zinf features an optimized version of the GPLed Xing MPEG decoder, a powerful music browser and playlist editor, and a built in download manager which supports downloading files from sites using the RMP (RealJukebox) download process, and a number of the most common features users have come to expect in a clean, easy to use interface, including:
- Plays all MPEG 1, MPEG 2, and MPEG 2.5 encoded files
- Support for Xing's Variable Bitrate Encoding Technology.
- Ability to play songs over the Internet through either HTTP unicast streaming (ShoutCast), or RTP multicast streaming (Obsequiem).
- Supports IceCast style title streaming.
- Can save ShoutCast and IceCast streams locally to your computer for offline listening.
- User defined prebuffering for slower machines.
The GNU/Linux version has these additional features:
- Enlightened Sound Daemon support
- Additional ncurses and command line user interfaces
