    Linux music library manager/player?

    Hey everyone!

    Just got ubuntu up and running today, and I'm trying to figure out which media player to sink my teeth into. I have about 20 gig of music on my hdd, so I want something with a good library manager..

    I used WMP10 in xp, and I liked how it did the library.

    What do you use? Why do you like it? What do you not like about it?

    Thanks in advance for your response.

    I would advise you to take a look at these for a start

    Thanks for the suggestions, I'll check those out.

    However, you didn't answer my question: Which one do you use and why?

    Amarok. It's the best in my opinion. Some of the others like Rhythmbox or Banshee generally feel like iTunes clones but I find that Amarok has a lot more in terms of functionality and originality. There are a lot of plugin scripts too and is very configurable. Definitely worth the download. First scan might take a while but after that it is very quick at picking up changes in your music directories.

    Downloaded amarok, i liek the features and presentation, but it is obscenely slow. I'm usin sqlite catalogging...

    I don't have much ram, but this is ridiculous. I never had any problems with slowdown w/WMP10..
