Exaile (music player)
« on: February 22, 2009, 09:42:40 pm »


I'd like to see a package for Exaile.

Quote
Exaile is a music manager and player for GTK+ written in Python. It incorporates automatic fetching of album art, handling of large libraries, lyrics fetching, artist/album information via Wikipedia, Last.fm submission support, and optional iPod support via a plugin.  In addition, Exaile also includes a built-in SHOUTcast directory browser, tabbed playlists, blacklisting of tracks and more.

The only problems I've ever had with exaile, regardless of the distro, is with the shoutcast plugin. Only the latest exaile shoutcast plugin (4.8?) can browse shoutcast streams. Older plugins will not be able to read the newer format of the shoutcast listings.
