    What do you mean by a media library? You mean like a WMP-ish online library or a "My Music" sort of deal where all of your music is grouped in a central location?

    JuK is similar to rhythmbox and I think it's included with the recent kde versions.

    You will have significant problems if you access large amount of music over a network using Rythmbox. That media ibrary for Winamp does look great, though. I've been looking for something like that myself. I'll look a little harder, maybe ask the author to port it to XMMS... I'll let you know!

    I found this so far:

    http://proguy.dk/xmms-medlib.php

    It looks promising, but it doesn't look nearly as advanced as the one you show. BTW... What's the homepage of that one? I can't even find it.

    Hi

    check out www.winamp.com The Media Library is a standard plugin.
    I have a fealing that you never even tried windows cuz There is no windows if not for utilities like winamp. Its the best media player I have seen. No hard feelings now. I wonder why those nullsoft guys never touched the linux side. After all Its freeware till recently. Even now Its almost free. Only a few features that You won't use anyways are locked.

    BTW you can feel its power under wine. It works pretty well on KDE. But it acts up a little under WMI like orphoned windows and stuff. Can some one help me over with this.
