Can SongBird be The Firefox of The Media Players??

band.pngI Tried Songbird(Still in Beta) yesterday and found It quite interesting ..

Acccording To Their Website..

“Songbird is developed by a band of experienced, dedicated software developers and designers called the Pioneers of the Inevitable. Our previous hatchlings include Winamp and the Yahoo! Music Engine.

We support the Mozilla Foundation‘s mission to preserve innovation and choice on the Internet.

Our mission is to incubate Songbird, the first Web player, to catalyze and champion a diverse, open Media Web. To this end, our investors include one of the top Silicon Valley venture capital firms”.

The Songbird Has lots of Features .

Play Anything
MP3, AAC, OGG, FLAC, WMA, and more. Can you teach Songbird to sing?

Pick Feathers
Choose from the two included themes: Rubberducky or Dove. You can even make one yourself.

Control the Flow
Play, Pause, Previous, Next, Volume, Mute, Seek, Three Repeat Modes, and Shuffle.

Quickly switch between tasks using the buttons to the right of the dashboard display.

Organize Your Library
Filter your collection by Genre, Artist, Album, and Song or Search-As-You-Type.

Scan Your Computer for Music
Songbird will find your music and add it to your collection for you.

Super Slim Mini-Mode
Use the mini-mode for basic controls while keeping Songbird out of the way.

Multi-Language Support

Build Custom Mixes
Drag-and-drop songs from the Library or another playlist to your create your own custom mixes.

Set Music Watch Folders
Tell Songbird to watch a folder for new music and it will automatically add new tracks to your collection.

Integrated Web Search
Search the web from the context of your collection or tell Songbird to search on the currently playing track.

Runs on Mac OS X, Linux and Windows.

Songbird Extensions
Coming soon! Have an idea for an extension?

CD Import and Burn
Coming soon!

The most Important Feature I feel is the extension’s One where you can create your own extensions and port it to songbird,or share it with your friends or the global community.

One such extension thats coming to my mind right now is to have extension for Pandora

As a result one will be able listen songs via pandora directly on Songbird or you can listen via Slim Devices Squeezebox™ .

Being Cross Platform is another Advantage (Runs in mac,Windows and Linux).Goodbye windows media player.

Another Feature Is that You can surf the net within songbird so no need to fire up your Browsers .

Check out the player and post your comments…

    It needs more formats support (like .ape, etc ) in order to compare with standalone plyers like Amarok or Itunes.
    Anyway, interesting
