Linux Show Player GitHub release Github All Releases Codacy Badge Gitter

Linux Show Player (LiSP) - Sound player designed for stage productions

Every component on which LiSP relies (python3, GStreamer and Qt5) is multi-platform, but the program is currently tested and developed only for GNU/Linux.

No special hardware is required to run LiSP, but some processing operations would surely take benefit from a recent CPU.

For bugs/requests an issue can be open on the GitHub issues-tracker, for everything else gitter can be used.



You can download an AppImage bundle of LiSP from the release page, once downloaded make the file executable. Now you should be able to run LiSP by double-clicking the file.
