Software

Rhythmbox ships with many popular plug-ins already installed - such as lastfm scrobble support, visualizations, DAAP music sharing and iPod support, but you can expand Rhythmbox's features further with third party plug-ins that range from a 10 band graphic equalizer to simple 'jump to now playing' hacks.
