      I was excited about Songbird. Then I tried it. Amarok FTW!

        We need a good lightweight Qt based music player with Gnome support

          maybe not exactly lightweight, but good enough

            That's actually what I did.
            Back in the KDE 4.2 days, I couldn't get Amarok 2.0 to work on my system due to a bug in 64-bit mysql. Songbird didn't work on my system (heh), and I didn't want to install a bunch of Gnome stuff for Rhtymbox or Banshee.

            There were the minimal ones like Audacious, but I didn't really care for them. So I wrote my own music player using Qt4 and Phonon.

            When Amarok finally did work, I didn't like it that much. And by then, I was too enamored by my own music player.

              That's great! I hope the final version will look and behave exactly like Amarok 1.

                VLC media player. It's Qt4 with Freedesktop.org color icons. It's intended for simple file playback. You can however make playlists.

                It plays all audio- and video files. It plays back all imaginable video- and music discs and files over network and the internet and also YouTube and other .flv videos.

                Best multimedia player ever made But I prefer Amarok 1/2 for music management ^^,

                  Actually it was promising.

                  But then the linux features started getting stripped out. Like no CD Ripping. Eventually it became a bit of a joke.

                  I'm disappointed because it COULD have been a great app. Esp. since I just can't get used to the Amarok library presentation.

                    You could use the one I wrote. It's pure Qt with no KDE deps.
                    Hope you don't mind compiling from source (CMake) and lots of lacking features.

                      I think the best media/music player in a long term is Amarok 2, but not yet. It has still many performance issues. Maybe by Amarok 2.4 or 2.5 those will get fixed.

                      Who likes Amarok 1, Clementine can be a good option, also there is ororok, inspired by Amarok 1.4 and foobar2000. Both using Qt.
