Music Player Clementine

A few days ago, I discovered another music player which I'm using now daily: Clementine.

Features I like:
  • It's quick and stable.
  • Mood graphics of songs.
  • Dynamic random playlists.
  • Discover song information, covers and lyrics from variety of sites.
  • Cover manager to retrieve from even more sources.
  • Extensive artist information gathered from various sources.
  • Tons of visualization algorithms, random changes.
  • It integrates well with Cinnamons sound gadget.
Unfortunalty, the handling of external devices isn't perfect yet.
At least, I was not able to add songs from my external harddisks to the random playlist, I had to create a new playlist for that purpose.
