can enjoy Grooveshark on Linux exactly as it does in Windows or any other operating system, through the web browser? Of course I do. But we also have at our disposal our own tools , some platform, to squeeze more so Grooveshark experience. Let’s take a brief look at the issue.
case someone knew not at this stage of life to Grooveshark, remember that it is a music service streaming Style Spotify and others, with its strong and weak point. Spotify I prefer it because it is not used much, no payment and no step for enduring insufferable limitations Spotify advertising. From normal use Grooveshark in your web browser and, yes, I have the decency to make an exception for the site AdBlock (which less!). In fact, although mobile applications need to run premium account, you can still use the service free of charge via the mobile browser in HTML5 version (still in testing).
However, someone who is a regular user of these services and pay a subscription , as well as get rid of the ads, access to additional features about school and have mobile applications , you can take advantage on the desktop with applications like Clementine (no need for presentations, right?), Tomahawk and Nuvola Player. The first two Qt applications, ideal for KDE environments, the third GTK3 (it is more likely that you find in the repositories of your distribution, but just in case I leave the download links of the last two). And the three platform . What more could you want?
This is Tomahawk
also worth pointing out that the three players mentioned, in addition to managing the local collection (with the exception of Nuvola) integrate with many more services online , especially Tomahawk and Nuvola Player, you focus on that especially. Tomahawk supports local network, Twitter, Google Talk, Jabber (XMPP), Spotify, SoundCloud, Last.Fm, Grooveshark, Dilandau, Jamendo, Official.fm, 4Shared, Ex.fm, Ampache and Subsonic. Nuvola Player, meanwhile, does the same with Amazon Cloud Player, 8tracks, Google Play Music, Grooveshark, Hype Machine, Pandora and Rdio.
And this is Nuvola Player
applications around Grooveshark, and is very well hear the service through the web or any of the players mentioned, but there are more things that can be done … right (here would go a: trollface ? In fact, we talk about songs download site , which at first is not allowed. In fact, what sense does download something that you can access as many times as you want for free? This apparently is because each person, but sometimes I throw in my own example-just find that song or album that you have been unable to find by other means, and it’s just impossible to resist.
that in GNU / Linux gSharkDown we have GTK + on the side, with which you can play and download without problems, among other options (playlists, integrates with GNOME, notifications, keyboard shortcuts, etc). Although judging by their latest release, dating from June last year, I could not tell if the project is still active or not, it does not.
As it so happens that not long ago launched a shy client who only serves to download and with the right options, but it does its job quite well. GrooveOff is called, allowing search (obviously!), Filter by artist, album and hear a snippet of the song, but to me this function I have not worked. The songs have to download one to one , it may be that his greatest fault, that at early development could well solved after an update any day now.
And, as I say, stop here today. Because there are more ways to listen and download Grooveshark issues (for example, through web browser extensions, some of which can enhance the experience), but we leave that for another day. Well, sure you do not need to tell you that Grooveshark as webapp is not wasted , in Chrome / Chromium or rekonq, not in Firefox (I tried the nonexistent integration with Unity , if someone has managed to leave us clues to follow).
you @ s, you like Grooveshark? Do you know any alternative that we missed? The comments are yours (remember that if you put more than one link antispam swallows).
