Strawberry Music Player

Strawberry Music Player is a fork of Clementine created because Clementine dropped the functionality to play HD audio streams.
https://github.com/clementine-player/Cl ... ssues/5344

...for 2 years we begged the developers to reintroduce the code that allowed configuration of Clementine to direct the datastream directly to alsa. Without it the awesome application became useless to Linux audiophiles that had spent large amounts of money on high resolution recordings and the custom DAC's they used to replay them. We were told by @hatstand that our "audiophile things" didn't matter and that a very easily reintroduced bit of functionality would not be forthcoming. :(

This was a sad situation from an attitude perspective that left Linux audiophiles without a quality alternative. Since that time I've have to build a total special configured version of PCLinuxOS that still used a older 1.2.3 version of Clementine and it's supporting gstreamer lib's etc for our critical music listeners. A lot of work just to have a version of Clementine that supported the interests of people who cared about high quality music reproduction.
Strawberry Music Player effectively addresses this problem https://strawbs.org. I have given it a try and it works as advertised.

The latest strawberry_0.4.1-6-g679caf7_amd64.deb file is second bottom on this page https://builds.strawbs.net/debian/stretch/

Would it be possible to add Strawberry Music Player to the MX repo?

Edit: here's a review of the software https://opensource.com/article/18/8/str ... sic-player

This would be useful and appreciated, as many users are requesting it, and strawberry is in most of the major distros (fedora, opensuse, pclinuxos, solus and arch aur) except for the debian based.
There is a process getting it into debian: https://mentors.debian.net/package/strawberry
If someone can package it, debian based package files already exist and can be used as a starting point:

I wish Aimp's developer port it to Linux, but he's already said he won't, ever. Strawberry looks nice, being a clementine fork looks exactly the same without the internet services, which in my opinion, while I don't use them all I do use a few, are certainly a plus. And one should have the option to add them but it doesn't seem to be the case with Strawberry since its creator doesn't like them cause he doesn't use them.
Without each other's help there ain't no hope for us :happy:

Perhaps he's be better of going back to using Microsoft with an attitude like his!

Who are you talking about? Aimp's developer? He uses Windows I think, he said it'd be much work porting aimp to Linux.
