Mellow Player – Cloud Music Integration for Your Desktop

Mellow Player – Cloud Music Integration for Linux
Written by Martins D. Okoi

Mellow Player is a Cross-Platform Qt Cloud Music desktop application with the main focus of working with web-based music streaming services to bring your favorite music selections to your desktop.

Being a Qt based alternative to NuvolaPlayer, specifically crafted for KaOS, Mellow Player features a minimal design inspired themeable User Interface with a nice feel.

It houses features like native desktop notifications, listening history, keyboard shortcuts, and the ability to add cloud music services that aren’t already supported in the app using plugins built with JavaScript.

Features in Mellow Player

  • Cross-platform – Mellow Player is available on Windows, Mac OSX, and GNU/Linux.
  • FOSS – Mellow Player is also free and open source with the code available on GitHub.
  • Supported services – Spotify, Deezer, Google Player, SoundCloud, Tune In, Tidal, YouTube, Mixcloud, and 8tracks.
  • Support for Plugins – add support for new services even by writing custom plugins.
  • Comprehensive Online Documentation – for beginners and professionals alike.
  • Notifications – Support for native desktop notifications.
  • Integration – System tray integration.
  • Shortcuts – Support for Hotkeys and media player keys.
  • Support for Mpris2 on GNU/Linux systems.

Due to licensing issues, Mellow Player does not ship the flash player plugin and the widevine DRM plugins in the official releases. Head over to the “Browser plugins” section on its GitHub page for supportive information regarding them.

Your Unwavering Support Matters a Lot:

The cost of maintenance is skyrocketing as more readers are coming on board and the ad service that we employ in order to generate revenue is unfortunately no longer sufficient and this is especially due to the increased use of ad-blockers.

We humbly request that you consider disabling your ad-blockers to support us financially or by donating as anything from $1. Your donation(s) will go a long way in supporting FossMint and sister site, TecMint, in running efficiently. Thank you.
