I really liked Clementine, until it started to have a serious problem where it would skip halfway through every song I would play. Only to find out that it was a bug. It was really good while it lasted
Actually I promote the central thought: "Don't depend on apps if not reliable".
There are a lot of media players in LM. Mostly do I use VLC. For (MP3) music do I use Audacious. I have used Clementine but on my system it crashed.
I have used Banshee for some time. But it started to crash about 1 or 2 years ago and it is now too much unreliable.
I don't know whether Clementine is the best choice. I am testing Exaile right now. But, anyway, it is worth considering to move away from Banshee.
Banshee kept crashing on my system, so I switched to Clementine. Never going back!
fully support it!
Clementine's great, but I'm having problems mapping my NAS drive it it on Linux Mint 12, and personally I like Banshee because I can use it to stream radio stations (I like Radio 3 with a coffee on a Saturday morning).
I think though you make an important point about the use of cross-platform software, and bundling Mint with Clementine won't stop anyone using Banshee, so I'm promoting this suggestion :)
I prefer Banshee for "clearer" user experience, but Clementines rocks for abilities, multiplatfoming, etc.
Makes sense PROMOTING
I'd agree, going to Clem as a music player would be a good idea, since Banshee, although good in it's own way, isn't the best currently out there. Promoting this.
First I'm happy to see this idea already here. Banshee is good software but Mint always has the best of breed and at this time that would be Clementine. Also I strongly agree as a developer about the Mono problem and further as a indie game dev we couldn't develop for Android using mono without purchasing a licenses from a novell affiliate. That'd said: I'd ask you guys to check out both players before voting! Banshee is good software but at this time Clem is better. ;)
A very good idea and well explained too. Promoting.
This is the first "change default player"-idea that has some merit and a well explained rationale.
Promote as this is well founded and not (so much) personal preference
