Should we recall question what should be the default music player for KDE?

We're also interested in hearing whether the other players available
can suit your needs.

In GTK-based DE, I'd consider Rhythmbox. VLC, MPlayer (and relatives) and
similar are great for movies, but not for music, especially not for larger
collections, IMHO.

Please test and compare the other audio players:


- Clementine

- Old good Amarok. :-) Am I objective when I have been using Amarok since
KDE3? ;-)

I also like this one :-)

From GTK world I like also Rhythmbox, but I'd rather avoid too much mixing of
GNOME apps with KDE.

I'll try this one, not familiar to me. As my preferred desktop is XFCE, it interests me.

It doesn't start scanning the collection till I changed in preferences "Watch my library for new files", then it does that fast.

I don't know where it stores "last played". Some players write this to the file itself, others to some not compatible database. It would be nice for players to agree in some auxiliary file format to keep this info.

It has a little panel that lists all artists, another all albums (in browse mode, it is a toggle button). Coming from Clementine, things do not seem obvious, but it has enough features to be usefull. It can edit fields, even on a bunch of files simultaneously.

Double click on an album does not add it to the play list, but starts playing it immediately.

When I installed it (on 15.1 beta) I saw it bringing in brasero, so it should be able to burn CDs from selected tracks. Maybe it can also handle USB sticks.

Confusingly, clicking on the window close button closes it completely, it does not go to the tray. And when restarted, it doesn't go back to the place in the track it was playing.

It has by default plugins for radio, podcasts,, and, and others in the configuration.

It does cover art search by default.

Not bad, all in all :-)
