The Beep Media Player (BMP) was an audio player application based on the XMMS multimedia player.[1] The lead developer was Milosz “deadchip” Derezynski.[2]

Released under the term of the GNU General Public License, BMP is free software.


BMP was mainly a port of XMMS to GTK+ 2 and, as such, integrated better with the look and feel of more recent versions of GNOME, Xfce and, if using the GTK-Qt theme engine for KDE, KDE desktop environments. Like XMMS, BMP looked like Winamp and supported Winamp and XMMS skins.[citation needed]


Along with the announcement of the release, the BMP development team also announced that BMP would not be actively developed any longer. Instead, the team would spend development effort on the next generation of BMP, called BMPx. There is also a fork of classic BMP called Audacious.

Forks of XMMS: XMMS2, BMP, Audacious, Youki
