Audacious is an open source audio player. A descendant of XMMS, Audacious plays your music how you want it, without stealing away your computer’s resources from other tasks. Drag and drop folders and individual song files, search for artists and albums in your entire music library, or create and edit your own custom playlists. Listen to CD’s or stream music from the Internet. Tweak the sound with the graphical equalizer or experiment with LADSPA effects. Enjoy the modern GTK-themed interface or change things up with Winamp Classic skins. Use the plugins included with Audacious to fetch lyrics for your music, to set an alarm in the morning, and more.
Instructions for installing Audacious from source in Windows (XP and newer) can be found in the “audacious” source package under contrib/win32/. However, installation from source is a time-consuming process because of the number of third-party libraries that must first be downloaded and installed. For your convenience, we provide a .zip file containing binaries of Audacious and its plugins along with these libraries:
After unzipping this file, simply navigate to the newly created “bin” folder and run audacious.exe. No other installation steps are required.
This .zip file contains binaries of third-party software (listed in the file README.txt) whose source code is freely available on the Internet. Our intent in distributing these binaries is in no way to restrict access to the source code but simply to make life easier for those wishing to run Audacious on Microsoft Windows. If any of the authors of this software do not wish their work distributed in this way, please contact John Lindgren at the email address listed in README.txt.
