The Best Music Player for Linux

Filed under
Software

There are a surprisingly large number of music players on Linux, and while we know the choice is a deeply personal one, we recommend Banshee for all your music listening needs.

Note that music players are one of the most hotly contested App Directory categories, and it's easy to see why. Everyone wants different things from their player, so it's nearly impossible to really choose the best one. However, the point of App Directory is to give you a starting point for good apps in any given category, and as such, we think Banshee is the perfect choice here—it's familiar, feature-filled, and perfect for Linux users looking for a music player. As always, we recommend checking out the competition section below for other choices if Banshee doesn't suit you.
