The Lesser Known Music Players For Linux

Filed under
Software

Ever wondered what other music players are there in Linux world that can replace your default one? Believe me, you are pampered with choices.

1. Clementine

This one is my favorite (not for the reason that I like to eat Clementine) and this is why it is first in the list. Inspired by Amarok, it is a good looking and yet a feature-rich music player. Available for Windows, Linux and Mac, it seamlessly integrates with Ubuntu. Its main features include good iPod (and other portable music device) support, dynamic playlists, lyrics and artist information, album art discovery. It has a strong support for Internet Radio including big names like Last.fm, Spotify, Grooveshark, Jamendo, Magnatune among numerous others.
