Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great for organizing and editing large collections
Quod Libet gives the user the necessary tools to edit and organize their library from within the app. There is support for tags as well to help you quickly find the music to fit your mood. To help you sort through large libraries, you can use the filters which help filter by genera or other search perimeters.
Pro Easy to use
Despite very good library management capability, Quod Libet is easy to use. The base music player doesn't have too many features, making it a breeze to use, however if you want to go deeper you can install plugins. These plugins can sometimes add complexity, but it's up to you what you do or don't want.
Pro Lots of plugins available
Quod Libet offers many plugin including Last FM sync, lyrics support and iOS sync.
Pro Folder view
Has multiple viewing modes, including Folder (File System) hierarchy view. Only other program to have a good folder view would be Sayonara.
Pro Customizable looks
There are a few controls that allow the user to change how the player looks.
Pro Powerful search syntax
Quod Libet has powerful search syntax options, very useful for creating smartlists or querying a big music collection.
Con Plugins could be better integrated
Viewing the lyrics could be easier to access, and lyrics not downloaded automatically. There is also little information pulled from last.fm - scrubbing works, but there is no artist info or suggestions for similar artists.
Con The GUI could have more eye-candy
There aren't any icons, just text. This makes it feel more like a library management tool than an audio player. A little polish would go a long way here
Con Uses quite a bit of memory
