Exaile Music Player – Music Player for GTK+ in openSUSE


  1. It’s just a shame it’s so god damn buggy!!

    I searched for a lighter alternative and came over Exaile, but it’s smart playlists are the worst piece of code I’ve ever seen, and the ratings are gone now and then.. Really timewaste if you like spending time rating your songs like I do.

    Other than that I can say, with my music collection the program gives up, at 10.000+ songs the program gives up, and no music player I’ve come across can replace AmaroK because of it’s MySQL-DB support and it’s WORKING ratingsystem + good smart playlists, which are also easy to edit btw.

    One feature I would like to see in both Amarok and other players is that “ratings” are binded by an indentifier in the ID3-tags at the “Comment” tag or something else that is completely optional .. It would do it much easier to reorganize your music collection without loosing the ratings.

  2. I promise, I will do .. this weekend 🙂

  3. Wow! Thank you! I always wanted to write in my site something like that. Can I take part of your post to my blog?

  4. Thanks for pushing out more ad-supported music information to the World!

  5. I am installing Excile on openSUSE 11.1 just after putting new system and it doesn’t want to start. I wonder why. Do I need to install anything additional? System is “basic” after installation like mentioned… maybe I should install Python for example ?

    – Can someone help ?
