future developments[edit]

I added some documentation about future Audacious' developments. --nenolod (talk) 02:41, 27 January 2006 (UTC)

Audacious is no more a fork of BMP Player[edit]

Check —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 01:15, 18 March 2007 (UTC).

Audacious is still a fork of BMP. It just doesn't contain much BMP code anymore. --nenolod File:Sigpaw.gif (talk) 03:58, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

Sources needed[edit]

This article needs to have it's sources cited, however an editor appears to be constantly removing the fact tags and the 'unreferenced' template. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:05, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

There are (now) citations in the article. Is there still more that needs to be cited? Is so, what? John lindgren (talk) 21:10, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

I removed the "unreferenced" template. If something needs to be cited, please use the "citation needed" template where needed. John lindgren (talk) 00:52, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

What is MPRIS[edit]

This article cites MPRIS and it's far from obvious what mpris is. There's no article on wikipedi about mpris neither. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:19, 24 August 2008 (UTC) John lindgren (talk) 21:12, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Skins and/or lack thereof[edit]

I object to these statements in the article, as they seem to imply that Audacious 2 will completely lack skinning:

Audacious had full support for Winamp 2 skins, and as of version 1.2, some free-form skinning is possible.

Audacious 2.x will have a non-skinned UI which will better emphasize on many of the player's features which are poorly exposed in the UI.

From what I've read on the website, Audacious 2 will have both a skinned and a non-skinned interface. The article should make this more clear. (talk) 04:55, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

done. -- (talk) 01:31, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

As of October 2008, it appears that development has ceased???[edit]

As far as what is showing up from, audacious2 is still under active development. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:09, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Is there a homepage, mailinglist, bugtracker or anything available right now?-- (talk) 11:14, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
Good question. Yesterday, I was searching for some information for quite a while, only now I was pointed to these sentences "As of October..." which, although they don't help, at least explain something. So is there any homepage, bugtracker and so on? --Tomash (talk) 20:18, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
The home page for Audacious Media Player is at, but the link to the bug tracker is currently broken. Unfortunately, I can't find any way to contact the site maintainer to get it fixed. One can get into the bug tracker by going to, but it doesn't seem to have much there, like it was ported from a previous version and the database didn't get imported properly. —QuicksilverT @ 23:58, 26 February 2009 (UTC)


I removed the section about "audlegacy". I do not see that that project is relevant here. (It is forked from an old and buggy version of Audacious, and has had a total of 8 changes in over a year since it was forked, most of which are nothing more than random imports of changes made in Audacious.) If someone wants to add the section again, please explain why you believe it is significant. John lindgren (talk) 17:49, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Backport from GTK+ 3 to GTK+ 2, announced port to Qt, migration from C to C++[edit]

June, 23rd 2014: In road to Qt, Audacious switches from GTK+3 back to GTK+2

It almost seems like the Wayland developers need either more insight from 3rd party developers or more help implementing missing stuff:
Weston does client-side decorations, AFAIR KWin announced they will do server-side decorations (with Wayland), now I am not sure about GNOME's default Mutter (software). User:ScotXWt@lk 19:38, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

Background recherche[edit]

Some background recherche reveals, that GTK+ 3.10 indeed removed support for the "Motif DND protocol", ref: GTK+ 3.10 released. See Motif, and I think DND stands for Drag and drop, a search reveals little: Motif DND protocol; Maybe the XDG-Shell protocol includes "drag and drop". User:ScotXWt@lk 10:41, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
