Is there an audio player with content library like Media Player?

Hi, and thanks in advance...

I'm looking for a media player that lets you setup play lists and view a content library like windows Media Player 9 does. Is there anything out there that has this feature? I've installed Real Player 10, but there is no music library functions or play lists that I can find?
Looking to setup a repository of tracks and build play lists, etc, to feed into my stereo system like a jukebox. Media Player will search your system and build a list of all audio tracks in one large library to display in a window. This allows a person to scan one list that can be sorted by several fields and pick and choose what to play. It also continues to play all tracks sequentially if left untouched.

Three apps spring to mind immediately -

XMMS - a winamp clone
JuK - bundled with KDE 3.2

Of these, I use Amarok... like the others, you can build playlists, but the interface is really slick, you can play shoutcast streams and more - it's very very good! check out the latest version..

That description reminds me a lot of Rhythmbox
