Arita is a music player for Unix-like (Linux) and BeOS-like (Haiku; as soon as glib becomes ported) platforms. It can scan most archive types (supported by libarchive) for tracks in all known free/open audio formats (plus MP2, MP3 and AAC), read their description from provided files (in XML or YAML format) and, on demand, verify checksums (MD5 or SHA1 signatures) in order to detect corruption. REMEMBER: Arita can't play single tracks, only those that were packed (without compression) into libraries. Currently has 3 interface (Ncurses, XForms, GTK2) and several sound (PulseAudio, libSDL2, libao, Media Kit) back-ends. Supports playlists (Apple's binary plist format).
