what’s wrong with vlc?
They are not very comparable. But you would know that if you would have read a little more than the title/headline.
It’s nothing wrong with VLC, I also use it as one of the best musicplayer, but to use it for streaming is not so practical manageable and does not work with restricted videos or music.
Nuclear looked promising first, but for me it felt too ‘webapp-ish’ and I also didn’t manage to play music from the various sources. Cannot recommend in it’s current shape.
I’ve heard decent things about sonixd, although I’m not sure if it’s still too webappy. Similar looking interface as Spotify
A lot less and I love it after the first 5 minutes! Thank you. It’s not very stable though.
if you’re willing to put the work in, I’ve been loving mpd + ncmpcpp. terminal based, but very cool.
I think you can look up MPD Players for music players that use MPD as a base, but provide a GUI interface as well
??? No such problems here. There are no other alternative for desktop and OpenSource. You can use the streaming services directly (Soundcloud, Spotify, etc.), VLC also permits, streaming (with limits and without a proxie like Nuclear), but all other desktop apps are proprietary, paid soft, or like FreeTube, are only YT front-ends.
That’s good for you. It didn’t really work for me. VLC is a good player, but not a good music suite. And I’m less interested in playing Spotify than Subsonic/Ampache.

Hi, which sources does Powerampp support? Can you use a Subsonic or Ampache server?
