anything else, makes you a fag. especially corporate bs software like iTunes and Spotify for fucks sake. the RIAA goes after pirates and you fuckers are gonna PAY to listen to ads to only have access to RIAA music labels?

Where does iTunes make you pay, or give you ads? I acquire all my music the /g/entoomen way.
Google Music used within Google Chrome and played on a Google Chromecast all connected to my Google account for optimal Google Botnet data collection!
Vox on my computer. Standard iOS music app on my iPhone using iTunes Match.
Good boy, now get all your friends to do the same for the glory of the Great Google Empire!
Musicbee, it fits my exact needs. Has enough features for everyone without being bloated and sloppy. I've also began using Spotify because of the free one month trial they give you, which of course I have already cancelled.
Can anybody recommend me a lightweight Linux music player that has album artwork or sidebar album thumbnail view? Banshee and gmusicplayer have this but they just don't agree with me
Mad_Minami was her "name", I can't remember her actual name. Pretty popular with slavs on /int/. Some say she's a cunt. Peni-less.
Is there any alternative to foobar on OS X? Tried iTunes, Clementine, Vox, Swinsian and a bunch of others and all sucked in at least a few aspects.
I just wanna provide a directory (network attached) to monitor for my library and be able to have a decent library browser for easy playlist creation and have full format support.
Clementine came pretty close but it has a god awful UI and is slow and bloated as fuck.
Thinking of using Wineskin + foobar, any other suggestions?
Musicbee on PC, Shuttle+ on phone.
because I like having my music readily available anywhere and I can't have enough of the botnet
for windows foobar2000
for linux - audacious for a lightweight player or MPD with the cantata frontend for a player with library db , tag editing and hundreds of internet streams built in.

On my Mac I use Radiant Player which streams from Google Music, on my phone I use the Walkman app with music on my 64GB microSD card.
When listening to music around the house I usually use my PS3 which has like 40GB of music on it.
depends man, foobar for general higher-quality listening. iTunes for podcasts and Spotify for following certain friends with similar taste in music and discovering new music.
In the end though I end up using foobar the most, so I guess there's your answer
mpd with ncmpcpp
though I also use gmpc for global hotkeys and notifications
MPC-HC and Windows Explorer. And I have a quite large collection of music, too, all sorted by download date.
I laugh at the people who waste their time with Foobar 2000, Clementine or fucking iTunes.
Windows Explorer is the way motherfuckers!
foobar for playing, musicbee for organization/sync with android
>All these MusicBee niggas
I'm so glad you've all come around, /g/ :')
Sure, it's not FOSS, but fuck, it's amazing. Foobar looks hideous because Windows' theme clashes with any theme made for it.
>sync with android
I never understood why people would want to sync their music collection with a mobile device
unless you have a tiny collection, you can only have a fraction of it on a mobile device anyway
why use some sync voodoo when you can just copy/paste the files over?
inb4 faggots who throw everything into one folder without rhyme or reason
but muh ratings and auto-generated playlists
that's one thing i missed coming from ipod+itunes. tbh i like android but it's pretty shit as a music player
plus my collection's only like 30 gigs
Deadbeef. It's not perfect, I have some gripes with it. For example, searching through my library by typing one letter at a time (instead of copypasting a search term) is very slow and laggy. The whole program freezes for a while.
That's not to say it's entirely deadbeef's fault. My library is so huge that I'm thankful that deadbeef can handle it reasonably well at all. Most players choke on just adding that much music. So the list of music players I can actually use is very very small.
More things I like about it: support for regex searching of playlists, support for utilizing regex to search for cover art, no unwanted internet connections (I don't really care for unwarranted lyrics/whatever lookup).
Also it handles non-unicode id3 encodings very very well, which is more than can be said about most of the other players I tried.
I also can't really use anything that relies on libid3tag since I run into an issue where it chokes on certain UTF16 tags.
foobar2k, it just werks
Used to use both Banshee and Clementine on linux, but I could never get them to look the way I wanted, plus banshee kept crashing on me.
How people can use ncmpcpp is beyond me
>>45321227$ du -sh Music
That is most of it. There is another 50G I have yet to add in a different folder. If you're curious that comes out to ~45000 tracks with a playtime of around 135 days.
There are very few players made with this kind of scale in mind. Few players are even tested with this kind of scale!
Another issue large issue is when your library is this large it tends to be rather diverse, so you have all kinds of tag encodings, formats, and so on. If your collection is small you can just add it, see what the player doesn't handle well, and fix that. But with my collection there would just be too many things to fix, so I have to have a player that more or less plays nicely with everything I have out of the box.
I'll give you an example. I just downloaded Quod Libet. The first bug I ran into is that it thinks one album I have has a runtime of several thousand hours (one song is even 1079 hours). Deadbeef manages to get that album right - each song is only a few minutes as expected.
You could just use a folder structure instead of dealing with library nonsense.
To me, it just doesn't make sense to organize by library regardless. But even if you insist on it, it's probably detrimental to convenience at that size.
I do have a good folder structure, but I like being able to easily sort by year, search through tags, search by subgenre, those kinds of things. Basically what a good music player provides.
Deadbeef does work very well for me though, it's as good a solution I can ask for really. The fact that it can work nicely with my library out of the box and has some nice features eclipses the few gripes I have with it (of which none are show-stoppers). I remember Foobar2000 worked very well a few hundred gigs ago (I believe at around 230GB), I should see how it holds up. Every so once in a while I'll run through the available media players just to see if there's anything new or improved that can stand a chance.
how you people do this? do you really are so autistic to spend you time tagging correctly tons of gigabytes of music?
When I try it I got like 3 different names for artist/albums eg. Ramones, RAMONES, The Ramones.
So normaly I only drop the folder I want to listen to the play list.
I like banshee
BUT it has dumb dependencies on gnome-settings-daemon and the later versions of gnome-settings-daemon that are not getting deprecated have dumb systemd depencies and the other music players I tried like Rhytmbox or Clementine had their own dumb issues like constant internet connectivity with like herpaderp let us look up on myspace and wikipedia and facebook and reddit like every time we click a song
also I do not know how to fix my metainformation
but oh well most of it is fine iti s just some artists but then again I have not listened to them inforever and I just have them because I used to listen to one of their songs on repeat forever every now and then
I double check the tags of every single archive of music I acquire regardless, including soundtracks ripped from game files. It still doesn't make a damn lick of sense to me to use libraries.
