    Songbird Linux Support Falls Out Of A Tree

    Phoronix: Songbird Linux Support Falls Out Of A Tree

    Songbird, the open-source multimedia player that's built upon GStreamer and Mozilla Firefox's XULRunner, is no longer chirping a Linux-friendly tune. We have covered Songbird a few times at Phoronix since its initial release back in 2006, but now four years later they will stop officially maintaining the Linux version as they focus just on the Mac OS X and Windows clients...

    Both are GTK players
    Didn't the equalizer in Exaile get broken with the last GStreamer update?

    Guayadeque, or however you spell it, let alone pronounce it... would be quit a nice player if it were a GTK application. But it's not, it's a wxWidgets app and unfortunately looks totally out of place on Lucid. I'll stick to Rhythmbox.

    Songbird's devs choice is a bad one indeed, but i honestly admit it's not that big loss. A promising player, but nevertheless a resource hungry behemoth just to play a bunch of songs. No way. Farewell Songbird.

    No Banshee love?

    As long as you don't fear your passwords being sent to MS (don't worry, they've said they won't use them as long as you don't publicly trash MS), it's a nice music management system, though Songbird's Genius workalike plugin was the best I've seen.
