To mark the release of Amarok 2.4 I proposed a couple of articles to stop running the media player the best possible way. We started Wednesday with 100% Amarok MySQL (by the way, the entry has been updated with more details) and ended today with one of the most interesting features of the blue wolf is greatly increased its capacity in every way: the Extensions .
Although more than extensions or additions are literally scripts I do not know if correctly translated as “scenarios” – which, yes, are installed with a click . To add interest we just go in Amarok menu “Tools> Script Manager> Learn More scripts (I guess you know all this, but just in case).
Today we will see the 4 best rated scripts in KDE-Apps (I take it as a good reference) that we will enjoy much more time we spend with Amarok (some much;). Let’s do this!Free
Whether you just enjoy reading them as you sing, this is a first in modern player. By default Amarok comes with a script to LyricsWiki, similar to other players such as Rhythmbox or Banshee, but as limited as that of them.Ultimate Lyrics
the explosive response in the form of script, so fulminant best you’ll find in this regard to any music repoductor , no matter the operating system of choice. Ultimate Lyrics has 30 different sites from which to draw the letters and is highly configurable . Besides its development progresses very rapidly. Must!
Music on demand
VK_Search is the closest thing we have to like services or Grooveshark Spotify within the Amarok , with differences, yes. Use the search music files in the Russian social rede VK (do not know if it’s OK As the description, but I dare not go there) and although there is around, it is enough.VK_Search
consists of a search bar where you type the artist name or musical training you want, and thereafter the results shows that we can add to the playlist. Basic but a bit cumbersome. However, by having something like that and we can come up with a song in the teeth.
Hundreds of radio stations that broadcast music from anyone with internet connection, arranged in classes of all kinds just a click away. Who can resist?SHOUTcast Service
us back one of the default was added Amarok 1.4 and version 2 lost more than a year (there is still the “Cool Streams”, but, admittedly, is limited). In addition, you can configure it to leave it to our liking. What more could you want?

Amarok 2 is very easy to add scripts for radio, which are often found country, choosing your own and with it most radios you might Find yourself with the classic dial and even many more (though this all depends on the charge of the script, as a rule are well stocked).
At this point it would be fair to include a single script, because MuyLinux accessed from Spain but also from many other Latin American countries, so then I leave a list of all available radios days Today (Spanish speaking):
Wed so happens that I am responsible for the Spanish radio script, so take the opportunity to comment something: next week will update . I say this for the failure of any station or something, to know that will be fixed soon;)

It is a matter of being a bit careful and take a look from time to time.
