Songbird Media Player and Jukebox

Songbird is nice multiplatform media player and jukebox. The current version is 0.2 but it is quite stable and works without crashes for me. It is cross-platform, runs on Mac OS X, Linux and Windows. Here are the minimum system requirements for Linux:
  • 233 MHz Intel Pentium II or AMD K6-III+ CPU (Recommended: 500 MHz or greater)
  • At least 64 MB of physical RAM (Recommended: 128 MB or greater)
  • At least 52 MB of available space on your hard drive
  • 16 bit sound card (Recommended: 32 bit sound card)
  • Speakers or headphones
Songbird can play all of the most popular media formats, such as MPEG Audio (mpga), MPEG Layer 3 (mp3), MP4 Audio (mp4a), Ogg Vorbis, Speex, AAC, WMA, FLAC, and some of the not so popular - LPCM, ADPCM, AMR. If you are developer you can "teach" Songbird to play another formats :)
Songbird also supports skins which are called Feathers. Search the web from the context of your collection or tell Songbird to search on the currently playing track. You can even Drag-and-drop songs from the Library or another playlist to your create your own custom mixes. Songbird can be set to watch a folder for new music and it will be automatically added to your collection. Here is the full list with features.
