Anybody else still using Guayadeque?
« on: October 22, 2017, 01:17:48 pm »
Just curious...

It's still my goto player for podcasts. I live-stream everything else.  :)

Still?  As in, implying that one ever used it in the first place?  ???

I don't like using software I'm not sure how to pronounce, you never know when someone's going to ask "what's that" and you're buggered.

[EDIT]

As the only reference I can find to it (besides the software) is a valley in Gran Canaria, and that's a Spanish Island, I'm going to go with the Spanish (and Catalan) pronunciation(s) here:
http://www.pronouncekiwi.com/Guayadeque

I guess i'd be free to use it now .. except now I have two problems:-

a) I'd never remember that pronunciation when someone got around to asking.
b) It sounds stupid when an English guy says it.

Yeah, I could never figure out how to say it either.  Weird spelling.  Not even everyone on that page said it the same way.   ::)

I usually just listen to music on my phone or tablet, or I open Pandora in a web browser.

Okay now you're just taking the pronunciation p*ss ???

[EDIT]

As an American, I'm seriously tempted to ask you to pronounce "Worcester" without looking it up :)

Are you saying Opera plays local video and audio and can queue them ?

Not that we could use Opera, but if so that's pretty cool.

No, Opera won't play media natively, AFAIK. Maybe it will with the right add-ons, but I dunno. Never tried to do it.

That was an example of how integral it looks, playing streaming content, with suitable API and extensions - in this case, my Peppermint 7 DJ bot in action.

And, it's easy to pronounce... ;)

Why not?  I play more stuff on that than I do anything else, except maybe my PS4 (it plays Blu-Rays.)
