i found a old thread with prelisting enquiry here: Track prelistening on a client.
that's a great idea. I use yammi but the development is stopped in 2007. In 2013 a Version is published without KDE3 and Qt3 dependency but the development is still stopped. QT4 based yammi works but crashed from time to time.
I search a long time for an alternative to yammi, but nothing found. The biggest advantage from yammi:
- 1. a very, very simple prelisten mode. prelisten to songs on headphone to DJ your own party (needs a second sound device)
From the yammi manual:
(only available if a second sound device is configured in the preferences)
start - Immediately starts playing the song via the second sound device, starting from the beginning.
middle - Immediately starts playing the song via the second sound device, starting in the middle.
end - Immediately starts playing the song via the second sound device, starting close to the end.
2. fast and easy fuzzy search. E.g. the search engine found by typing ACDC: AC-DC, AC/DC, ACDC, AC DC, AC_DC
