1 like others have said development has ended and cant handle large collections of music, which is a shame cause this was my go to music player when i started using linux several years ago.

2 At one point, it was my go to music player, the interface is really well designed, but its dependence on mono made it unusably, crash-prone, slow and buggy. Now i use gmusicbrowser.

3 The sound-applet got recently updated for me and then banshee didn't showed up anymore. Now I had enough of banshee since it takes to long to load, the volume-button is bugged and probably a lot of other problems I can't remember now, but which frustrated me. With tomahawk I found a good alternative, even if it is lacking some more options and features in my oppinion.

3 tl;dr feature rich & slow. Seemed great for organising my music, fixing erroneous track information and making smart playlists to suit my mood... until my collection grew enough (just a few thousand songs) that it became very slow to use: it takes most of a minute to load, can be over a minute once you load your favourite playlists, and even rating a single track would freeze up the program for several seconds! Its internal database must have messy code. Its playlists are not accessible by other programs nor can they be played via terminal commands, and are a pain to generate & export. Occasionally it crashes when commanded to play, so it cannot be used reliably with alarm-clock. Reference point as YMMV: version 2.6.2 on an old laptop running LM17.3XFCEx32 with Intel Core2 Duo @ 2.26GHz and 4GB DDR2@800MHz.

Neither have all the features of Banshee. Under XFCE there are no issues at all to report and I have returned to using Banshee as my main Music Player on my main box.

3 Banshee now seems to be the one and only music player available for Linux Mint that is at all capable of accessing music coming from a NAS iTunes media server. The trouble is, it is quirky, if not hopelessly unreliable. Strangely enough I always need to quit Banshee and relaunch it before the NAS share becomes available. If I stop playing music to do something else and the computer goes into sleep mode, Banshee will lose sight the share and the computer needs to be rebooted before it sees it again. However, rebooting the computer is not always guaranteed to straighten out the problem. On such occasions Banshee might decide that the share is now being hosted by iTunes 7, which is too advanced for it to understand. The truth is the share is coming from a Synology NAS, not from iTunes on an Apple or Windows computer. When this glitch occurs I can fix it by renaming the share from within the NAS control interface, which of course is an added hassle. I can't see any logical reason why this should be. I recently installed Rhythmbox 2.99 from the Linux Mint software manager. Bizarrely, this updated version is now incapable of accessing any shares on the network unlike its earlier versions that could. Sad really.

2 Very buggy and crashy, if I get it running it usually doesn't work properly. I've tried many things via different Linux forums to solve the different problems and it still doesn't work properly. At least now it works if I start it with command line. Was much more stable with Mint 16, now I'm using Mint 17 (both are 64-bit Cinnamon), and somehow Banshee doesn't run very well with Mint 17, I've heard that this is due to some changes made in Ubuntu 14.04. Please fix it. It is good player otherwise and it has good potential, but it is currently unusable. If it would be more stable, I would probably give it 4 stars. Because of this crashing I've moved to Audacious and Amarok, at least until Banshee is usable again.

2 Changing my review. The latest version gives you the option to hide sorting columns, but not option to restore or unhide them. Plus, the stop playing after this song option isn't permanent (a toggle) which is a must for me because I like to pick every song I listen to manually rather than just have them play continuously.

2 I thought I could like it, but I don't. Not since my last install anyway. For the time span it has been in development it is too buggy and has too little features while it seems to have less and less with every new release. Only a basic player with somewhat extended abilities, which is a shame, because it could rival the larger packages out there. Worst is that it crashes very often. Bad audio quality. Sometimes jumps to the next song unexpectedly or stutters in playback. Automatic playlists don't work well at times. I wish people would take this whole linux business a bit more serious instead of viewing it as finger training exercise like so many of these projects out there that never make it past "0.7b" or the like. Look at windows freeware, or OS-X. You might learn something. Looks like this project is geared to only cosmetic changes. Nope, not for me.

5 This indexes ALL your media files, not just your mp3s. We're talking downloaded youtube videos, m4a, flv, and avi. It's easier than ever to make automatic playlists with this. It also includes all the same features as a standard player, like radio, scrobbling, and linking to other music sources. It even runs on windews!

5 Love it! I tend to watch a lot of video podcasts, and the ability to play them in fullscreen and still have access to the playback controls by simply moving the mouse, is a win in my books. So much better than Rhythmbox in that regard!

3 it's ok for music, but IME, slow for syncing with iPod Touch/iPhone and podcast support is not nearly as good, usable, fast or intuitive as other applications. Rhythmbox handles both of these better (and a lot quicker)

5 A very good, full featured media player, with good library management features and integration with online services, such as last.fm. For me, the fact that it depends on mono is irrelevant, and shouldnt be relevant to any new Linux user either.

5 Banshee is a fully featured multimedia library manager with some nice additions (e.g. sound equalizer, cover management) and integration with brasero for easier cd creation. Vast catalogue of plugins from community and developers to manage playlists and external devices. One of the best player around, although still a little slow when loading very big libraries on average pc.
