gmusicbrowser: An Acrobat Among Music Players

I have got to talk about gmusicbrowser, my current music player.



This is an extensively customizable player. It comes with several layout configuration by default and then there's user created layouts available from third parties.



The 1st screenshot shows the shimmer desktop layout with the song tree pane. The 2nd screenshot has the shimmer desktop with browser configuration. If you're the kind of music player aficionado who likes to change the user interface every time you start a music player then you're in heaven.

And I was just trying to find a player with a decent equalizer!

gmusicbrowser has that and MORE.

I could filter my library based on metadata. Metadata includes artist, album, genre(s), year, label and more. I could customize the filter and save it.

I could control how random play goes in gmusicbrowser. I could play music based on its metadata of course. But when it comes to random play, gmusicbrowser allows me to combine several metadata filters or weights to help it choose what to play next.

I could lock play to artist (to play one particular artist) or to album (to play just the album).

Management of metadata is very easy with gmusicbrowser. It is capable of mass tagging and saving it to file. It is a matter of selecting which tracks or albums to edit. I never have to use Easytag again.
