Banshee vs Clementine vs Tomahawk | Reviews

Software

Computers have always been used as music playing devices. Big collections with thousand of songs coming from hundreds of different artists are easily organized using the right application. Many people nowadays, don’t even use a music player to listen to music because everything is on the internet, but music players have evolved offering better functionality and integration with internet music services. Time to get our hands on three of the most representative music players for the linux platform right now and see which one is the “biggest” player of all. The distribution I will be using is Fedora 16 64-bit.

Compared Applications

Banshee is the “official” Gnome music player. It is a fully featured music player with wide support for media formats of all kinds. Banshee even supports the playback of video files, although we won’t test or give any points for that on this article. Banshee is multiplatform offering MacOS and Windows editions but the really stable and properly-working versions are available on linux only. For this article, I used the latest stable version 2.4.0 that was released last month.

Between Linux Mint 18 and Fedora 24, we reckon it’s exciting times in the Linux world. With the exception and onset of the boring world of vanilla Ubuntu releases, Linux feels reinvigorated and fresh once again. Jump on board, because it can only get better from here. Read more
