Parole is a modern simple media player based on the GStreamer framework and written to fit well in the Xfce desktop. It is designed with simplicity, speed and resource usage in mind. Parole features playback of local media files, including video with subtitles support, Audio CDs, DVDs, and live streams. Parole is also extensible via plugins.
Parole currently features the following plugins:
- Notify, which shows notifications (using libnotify) for track changes.
- System Tray Icon, which allows minimizing Parole to the system tray where playback can also be controlled.
- MPRIS2, which allows remote control; e.g. by Gnome3’s “media player indicator”-extension or Ubuntu’s soundmenu.
