MIDI

Setup on Linux

I'd thought VLC had dropped support for MIDI, but I've found it to be the easiest way to get hassle-free MIDI playback.

  1. Install VLC as usual
  2. Install a soundfont
  3. Point VLC to that soundfont via Tools > Preferences > Input/Codecs > Audio codecs > FluidSynth

Now you can play a MIDI file just like it's any other audio or video file :)
