cross-platform music player for dual-boot setup.

I am looking for a Music player that i can install on windows 7 and linux mint 14, and share the database and playlists across platforms. It needs to support relative paths so i can export playlists for my MP3 player. I used to use Amarok, but it doesn't support relative paths.

VLC is nicely cross-platform--I use it on Windows 7 and Mint to play stuff from an external USB drive.

It has playlist capability, but I've never used it--I'm not a playlist kind of guy, I guess.

This article may help though. It's VLC's article on playlists:
