General Information

The basic functions freevo provides can be extended by plugins. There already exist quiet a lot of good ones, but of course you are invited to develop more (see Writing plugins). Many plugins are bundled with freevo, and you just have to activate them. More can be found at http://freevo.sourceforge.net/addons/.

To learn which plugins are available and which are already active, use the command  freevo plugins -l
