Songbird was developed by Mozilla, the same people who created Firefox and Thunderbird. So already you know that it's going to be a quality program. In fact, it has a very similar UI layout to Firefox.
Some of the features Songbird includes:
- Out-of-the-box iPod support, for ALL OS's
- Tabbed browsing (In a music player, wtf?)
- Recursive folder scanning, for easier importing of music
- Regular updates, much like Firefox.
Note: On linux, you will need the GStreamer plugins, (you probably already have them). If you don't have them, you can easily install them.
sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-good gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-fluendo-mp3For Gentoo:
emerge -av gstreamer gst-plugins-base gst-plugins-xvideo gst-plugins-x gst-plugins-gconf gst-plugins-gnomevfs gst-plugins-alsa
