VLC is a media player first and foremost. There is no library management (aside from playlists), limited usage of tags, and no rating system. VLC is best at playing a file directly from a folder, but falls behind when it comes to helping you manage or find good songs in your music library. See More
Media managers are a different animal - for audio files, you have organisers (Musicbrainz Picard is my choice here) and advanced players (like Banshee, Clementine, Deadbeef). For simply listening to music, Audacious is light, fast loading, handles playlists and works very well. For listening to music whilst also being able to delete and rate you're better off with something else - Banshee has my entire music collection in it's database for example. See More
Just it works. And the main feature is that can be able to play DSD format. See More
Audacious is a classic music player at heart that has not felt the need to weigh itself down with an assortment of unnecessary options. Advanced functionality can be attained through plugins available from within the program. See More
Clementine allows the user to move and organize audio files easily. Some examples include the following: It's easy to find a specific album song (find artist, select album, select song). It's easy to add songs to a playlist and queue the songs. It's easy to rename files from their metadata (artist, album, song number, etc). It's easy to add cover images. There are options to find duplicates, untagged songs, etc. See More
This is one of the best Music player I have ever used. It's not eye candy but If you give a try you will love it. It's very reliable and stable software. It has almost all codecs format to play music, lots of settings, EQ, music converter, On-line Radio feature, etc. See More
Clementine includes support for services such as Ampache, Google Play Music, Spotify, and many internet radio stations such as Jamendo and Icecast. It's also possible to search all available sources (local and online) at once, as well as mixed content playlists. See More
Clementine gathers the user's listening data to use for smart playlists. Clementine uses your listening history to play music similar to the music you play most - which typically is music you will like but maybe haven't discovered yet. See More
Most other modern music players come with an Album Artist Field when sorting music. Collaboration is very common these days and often a song would feature multiple artists, but sometimes it's easier to just sort for Album Artists. It's a rather simple feature, yet Rhythmbox has repeatedly shot down its users for making that request. See More
