Ex Falso / Quod Libet - A Music Library/Editor/Player
Quod Libet is a music management program. It provides several different ways
to view your audio library, as well as support for Internet radio and
audio feeds. It has extremely flexible metadata tag editing and searching

Ex Falso is a tag editor with the same tag editing interface as Quod Libet,
but it does not play files.

Supported file formats include Ogg Vorbis, MP3, FLAC, MOD/XM/IT, Musepack,
Wavpack, and MPEG-4 AAC.

====[ Requirements

==[ Source

Quod Libet depends on the Python runtime and associated libraries.

    * Python (>= 2.4):
    * PyGTK (>= 2.10):
    * PyGSt (>= 0.10.2):
    * Mutagen (>= 1.10):

Particular audio formats depend on various GStreamer decoding elements, 
as well as other Python modules. GStreamer splits their downloads into 
good, bad, ugly, and ffmpeg packages; you probably want them all in
order to play as many formats as you can.

Format		Decoder
ASF/WMA		ffmpeg
FLAC		flacdec
Musepack	musepackdec
MOD/XM/IT	modplug
MP3		mad
MPEG-4 AAC	faad
SPC700		spcdec		
TrueAudio	ttadec
Ogg Speex	speexdec
Ogg Vorbis	vorbisdec	ttp://
Wave		wavparse
WavPack		wavpackdec

Internet Radio depends on HTTP support in GStreamer; the most common way 
to get this is to install the GNOME-VFS modules for GStreamer.

Audio Feed support depends on HTTP support and Universal Feed Parser

Many parts of Quod Libet benefit from D-Bus and its Python bindings
( iPod support depends on libgpod
and its Python bindings (

Quod Libet requires the PyGTK development libraries, intltool, and the
Python distutils suite to build and install. You can do this with
 $ ./ build
 $ ./ install
