Hey Jeremy,

Can I change my vote to Banshee? I apologize for asking but so many people had been talking about banshee here and other places that I had to try it. and I really do like it much better. I originally voted for Rhythmbox. I still really like Rhythmbox and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. But Banshee just has a much nicer layout and I love how it integrates Miro and other services as well as a video player. The only thing its missing is that it does not have an option to cross fade the music like in Rhythmbox. Though I hope its coming in an update or plugin.

Even though I'm still using Amarok, I'm voting for Clementine because it has grown into one of the very best audio players applications available in a very short time (and I may convert to Clementine eventually).

Banshee, because it comes prepackaged with Ubuntu 11.04.

hmmmm not quite yet. As far as I know its rumored to be up for being prepackaged, but the Banshee people are doing lots of feature adding and bug fixes, and for it to be prepackaged it has to be as stable and bug free as Rhythmbox. I recently switched to Banshee and really hope they do make it the stock Music app in 11.04. Cause it has soooo many more features and I like the way the layout is better and how you can have albums show up as covers instead of just names. And supposedly any custom covers you put on an album are then embedded into the music. But I have yet to test this so don't quote me on that.

Get the picture? Alpha 2 hasn't been reached yet, and Banshee is already the default.

Those are screen shots of something that (as you said) have not yet hit alpha 2, That is quite far form being a feature free and having default programs being locked in.

And I believe I said "as far as I know" so please, don't speak condescendingly. I was only putting my 2 cents in on the matter that you brought up.

p.s. I did test out the embedding of covers into the music that I mentioned before, and I don't think it does that I tried adding both custom art work and Banshee also download new artwork from the net automatically for some of the songs. But when I copied the library to my 1tb external drive and put them on my laptop, none of the album are was there. I thought I heard this could be done but maybe I'm wrong and its currently not able to have that much info embedded inside the music file. Really wish it could though, cause spending hours and hours Googling to find album art I like and adding them to each album really sucks!! Also the way Banshee rearranges the songs in the albums of the Music folder is really screwy. But that is true of all music players I've used that arrange the files.

+1

I'd not paid much attention to this thread yet and surprised to see it's not already on the list. For those looking for a lightweight, poweruser, curses front end to MPD, look no further

P.S.; oh yeah, and guess what? MPD handles gapless play back. So if you're into Trance, Classical, etc and weary of gstreamer's enforced gaps between tracks, even where they don't exist in the original recording, look no further...

We don't plan on adding any "front-ends" to the poll at this time. Thanks for the feedback.

Rhythmbox is my vote. I haven't really used anything else. I guess I could shop around for some better options though

Probably because you are using Ubuntu 10.10 instead of 11.04 Alpha 1. Then, you would be using Banshee.
