Editorial Songbird is a new open-source music player that has this week landed at 1.0. Songbird is described as a "web player"- a music player for this modern, connected era. It blends the web-rendering core of Firefox (Gecko), with the media capabilities of GStreamer- a cross-platform, open-source media playback engine.

I have tested Songbird on windows, however to me, it just seems like a project to bring iTunes to Linux, although there is nothing wrong with that.

The UI is well crafted and will hopefully inspire other projects to think more about design.



Check out Banshee. It is iTunes-like but better in my opinion.

Check out MPD with Sonata, it's actually usable.

Are you inferring that Banshee isn't usable? For me it is the best media player available bar none. Sonata kind of looks like a rip off of Muine which Banshee can now emulate with Muinshee.
