Top Linux Music Players
Turning our attention to the best music players for Linux. First up is Amarok - A Music Player for Linux. Along with RhythmBox, the most popular Linux audio player, Amarok features excellent music and device management functionality, play-listing, collection management, file organization and 3rd party add-ons.
Not to be outdone, the aforementioned RhythmBox Music Player for Linux is an equally impressive application that works seamlessly on most distros and runs with incredible stealth in the background of the OS. It has a simple design and navigational GUI, clean install, and slick set of features. RhythmBox covers all your basic to intermediate audio playing needs, such as music libraries, podcasts, Internet radio, Last.FM, visualizations, preferences, and extensive configurability for track, artists, genre, and play queue setup.
Another excellent Linux audio player and one which is much improved from previous versions is Banshee. In Banshee - More Than Just a Linux Audio Player, Josef Nankivell explores this top desktop media player. Using a slick import engine, Banshee is extremely fast, has an exceptional search facility, social media integration (Last.fm), mixing, play-lists and queue setup configuration.
