So ever since iTunes started hassling me with its “determining gapless playback information” garbage, I have been looking for a media player that would replace iTunes, but still support the iPod and other devices, while still giving me complete control over my music collection. That’s how I came across Songbird (www.songbirdnest.com)
Songbird is built on the Mozilla/Firefox platform and allows you to play music from your computer library, or it will let you play web-based streaming files as if they’re on your computer. It allows you to open up webpages within the media player and it displays a list of all media files below that you can click on to play and/or drag them to your computer to save them.
Songbird is very customizable like Firefox, they allow you to feather it (skin), plus there are numerous extensions and plugins that can be applied.
“And oy, there it is.” – listen for that line if you watch the screencast.
