Lightweight and Linux inspired media player
- Clean interface
- Control from the menu bar
- Support Last.fm and others
- Album cover retrieval poor
- Very basic library management
Clementine is a lightweight, simple and clean music player and organizer that’s based on the popular Amarok engine for Linux.
When you start Clementine, you have to compile a library. Just select the folder you want Clementine to search and your library will be compiled in just a few seconds. Clementine also includes some interesting apps such as a tag editor for MP3 and Ogg files, support for Last.fm (which requires a paid subscription to this service), ability to play online radio and a cover manager, with which you can fetch missing covers for your albums.
Unfortunately this latter feature is very hit and miss and doesn't always retrieve the correct album work if any at all. There also aren't any global hotkeys or many library management options. Overall though, Clementine is a well designed music manager which is ideal for those that don't want a huge bloated player to playback their music.
Clementine is a simple music manager that will appeal to all those who just want a simple music player
- This release features tabbed playlists, playlist search, projectM visualisations, Magnatune integration, ReplayGain volume normalisation and music transcoding. We've fixed loads of bugs too - searching large libraries is now much faster, playback is much more reliable on Windows, character encoding problems are fixed, and remote playlists should load correctly all the time.
