Whats Your Favorite Music Player?

(1/1)

Pinguy:
I haven't really got a music player that I really like. My favourite one for awhile was Songbird because of all the add-ons until they stopped Linux support and the iPod add-on stop working.  I also liked Listen when I was first starting out with Linux but got bored of that pretty quickly.  aTunes is ok but its such an ugly looking player and it feels really slow.

Haven't tried Clementine yet but am going to. I really like the idea of using a Wii controller with it, plus it's meant to work with iPods now, something I haven't been able to get Banshee to do for awhile.  It also has ProjectM visuals integrated into it.

EDIT#

Just installed Clementine to give it a test drive. Seems like a really nice player. Did have a bit of problems installing but was easy to fix just needed to run:

--- Code: ---sudo apt-get -f install
--- End code ---
after installing the .deb

Still need to test the Wii remote and iPod support but so far I am liking what I am seeing. There does seem to be a bit of a problem with it picking up the album art but this is because I haven't tagged the music with the album art, but Rhythmbox has never had this problem, as long as the cover art was in the folder with the tracks Rhythmbox would show it. Maybe something the developers could look into for future releases.

It could also do with with some way of getting info from Wikipedia about the playing track and a lyrics plugin.

I would have to say Rhythmbox, I have used about all the players for Linux and it has been the best i have used thus far. Exaile is a close 2nd.

Yeah, or discogs, even better. Until then, Rhythmbox is cool with me.

jason:
rhythmbox and amorock, but i think i just need to look closer at the rhythmbox plugins  and apply some styling to it etc.

I really hope this becomes a reality and not just a mock-up.
