    Default 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...

    I remember that Songbird was one of the most popular all time downloads on getdeb. Talking about some shooting and someone's own foot.

    No loss for me though, Rythmbox is still my favourite.

    Well, it was crap anyway. At least it was the last time I tried, which admittedly was quite a while ago and on Windows.

    Doesn't Songbird modify your files without you knowing? I vaguely recall something audiophile/data-integrity related (possibly torrents) that discouraged the use of Songbird. If that's the case, then:


    And nothing of value was lost.

    i tried it around initial linux release and it was a bit too much of a kitchen sink for me. slow, big, difficult.

    i pretty much forgot about the app already. i prefer simpler audio playback solutions, like mpd

    Let's start a flamewar about this
    Anyway, Amarok rocks. Be it 1 or 2, they're both good enough for me now :P
