beep-media-player is my mp3 player/manager of choice. though there really isn't a manager to it, unless you set up your own playlists...

Rhythmbox. It comes closest to iTunes, which I find incredible.

i dont know rhythmbox, cause i'm a kde user, but i cant leave without amaroK... it is excelent!

I like to listen to online radios, so it gives me some good suggestions and i can even find lyrics automatically. Give it a try.


cheers

With amarok 1.3 (currently a beta) you can view the song's lyrics plus information about the group/artist from wikipedia (this is dangerous, I got stuck a couple of hours reading interesting stuff about my favourite bands) and listen to webradio... it's my number 1 app!

In my opinion: amarok is great for features and functionality, mpd/ncmpc for performance and simplicity.

beep-media-player and a decent directory structure for files is sufficient for me. I have had a look at different jukebox type programs and I cannot really grasp what makes them so useful. I create my own playlists after my own taste, not after the id3 tags.

I'm currently getting into mpd, but I have to agree with you on this.

Using emelfm2 as a file manager, you can browse through your music directories and play songs (in bmp, or similar) simply by using the cursor keys, very fast and convenient.
Assuming your music directory(s) are kept in some kind of order, that is.

Just had to throw in Yammi (http://yammi.sourceforge.net) as it seems to be a bit underrated.

it depends on the size of your collection. if it's really big, apps that try to organize your music, like rhythmbox, will either crash or use hundreds of megabytes of memory. i ended up using mpd with glurp.

Quod Libet, without questions. It's like a professional version of rhythmbox. No pauses between songs, integrated tag-editor, many playlist view-modes etc. Try it!
