Songbird is an open-source music player and organizer with which you can manage, play and discover music. It’s free, cross-platform, highly customizable thanks to a wide variety of plug-ins and can be improved and extended by the contribution of its user community.
It is integrated with these Web 2.0 services: mashTape, SHOUTcast Radio, Last.fm Scrobbling, and Songkick concert tickets. You can enhance Songbird with community-contributed plugins like Media Flow.
Songbird automatically imports your music files from a selected folder, monitors that folder for future music additions, organizes your music in a handy, easily browsable catalog, is compatible with iTunes and Last.fm libraries, can be controlled from any other app thanks to global hotkeys and also supports Last.fm scrobbling. It also includes album art and a simple equalizer.
Songbird is such a complete tool that’s hard to find negative sides to it. Plus there’s an army of developers constantly working on improvements and new features. The only thing I missed so far, in fact, is support for podcasts â€“ which I’m sure will probably be added some time soon.
Songbird is a complete, full-featured music player and organizer with support for plug-ins and an extensive user community.
