Songbird plus Mozilla, the ultimate media mashup for your music

,----[ Quote ]
| GNU/Linux has come a long way since XXMS, the Winamp wannabe. The number of
| free media players has bloomed: Amarok, Banshee, Rhythmbox, Kaffeine, Kplayer
| and JuK. They have enough features to cater for every need a dedicated music
| lover could wish for. So Songbird, which is not even at version 1.0, would
| have its work cut out to rival those media players especially the ability to
| play video as well as music. But Songbird has one unique feature. It has a
| built-in browser, Mozilla, which allows it to extract maximum mileage from
| your music collection. Web integration leverages your music and allows you to
| do some really great stuff. This article will look at the features of
| Songbird that make it an essential addition to any installation.

Hands on: Songbird 1.0 music app soars

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall, Songbird is a great music application that's getting off to a great
| 1.0 start. With a rich UI, a wealth of customizable options, and a firm grasp
| on the fundamentals of what a 21st-century media player needs to do, Songbird
| is a very solid alternative for users who want a truly cross-platform option
| for organizing and getting social with their music libraries.

Review of two best audio player of Linux System

,----[ Quote ]
| I always try to keep audio and video player separate from each other. Most
| people don't care until their system gets jammed about memory stuff. But some
| are too concerned and try to execute whatever takes less memory on their
| system and still get their job done. I will list two applications (one is not
| quite single application, it's a collection).
|
| a. Amarok: (Version Memory: 21.6MiB)
| b. Esperanza: (Version 0.4.0, Memory: 3.1MiB)

,----[ Quote ]
| The Songbird developers have contributed extensively to bring cross-platform
| support to GStreamer, an open source multimedia framework that is used
| extensively on Linux. GStreamer is now used as the Songbird media backend
| across all platforms, improving the performance and reliability of audio
| playback. In addition to supporting MP3, FLAC, and OGG across all platforms,
| GStreamer also supports WMA on Windows and AAC on Windows and Mac OS X.
