10 Linux Alternatives to Songbird

Filed under
Software

Songbird has left the Linux flock and gone on to perceived greener open source pastures. But what are the Linux faithful to use to replace this one time music player gem that was heralded as the alternative to iTunes?

Banshee

Banshee stands heads above the crowd in its video management capability, and it has the unique capability to sync videos with your iPod. But it isn’t just videos that Banshee excels at, since it has a very capable music manager as well. You can queue up your own music, or let the auto DJ spin your tunes. There is a shuffle play mode, and the Banshee will even automatically grab the album artwork for you as you listen.

Banshee will sync with your iPod, Android, and other devices. You can also import media from your portable media player, making it easy to group and manage your collection. Smart playlists and a potent search rounds out this versatile player.
