I was wondering if anyone could recommend a Podcast & Music client? I was previously using Clementine and could hook into some internet radio streams and create custom streams for other stations.
Should I stay with Clementine or any other recommendations?
I am using Cantata as my main Musicplayer. Sometimes i switch to Strawberry.
For my main Podcast collection with downloadfunction i use GPodder.
There are many other so its up to you what are you using. You will surely get some more suggestions
I like quodlibet because it provides an easy interface for editing music tags (like Ex Falso). It’s basically Ex Falso that also plays music.
P.S: Don’t worry. It doesn’t explode.
P.P.S: In hindsight, I’m not sure many would get that one.
In Cantata you have something similar like an Tag Editor. Mostly i use for tagging my Music EasyTag. Somehow I never got along with Ex Falso. But if you think about it, having a built-in tageditor does the trick
Best I don’t know but one which seems to meet your needs: Rhytmbox
Just installed Kasts for Plasma. Same as GPodder but for Plasma
Thanks all, I’m going to try out each one and see how I get along
Checking out screenshots of each Cantata seems very similar to Clementine but with an itunes skin Much better interface overall.
I’m not sure if any of the recommendations have this but one really cool thing Clementine has is a mobile app so that you can remotely control your PC playlists. Functionality was limited but it was great to be able to swap tracks, Play/Stop/Pause, volume.
Granted I didn’t use the feature that much, since I’m usually sitting at the computer I’m listening to.
I am sure you are making the right decision for you.
As far as I know, strawberry is the successor to clementine since it is no longer being developed.
You mentioned Strawberry in an earlier post but I didn’t realize it was a Clementine successor, thanks for that.
That’s definitely one thing that bothered me during my initial google search, so many apps were no longer under development. I appreciate all the feedback.
I use MusicBee in WINE for my music library and it also supports the downloadable-type/RSS podcasts. It seems like you want internet radio more though, which MusicBee also supports but I’ve not tested it in WINE.
You might want to have a look at Quod Libet. The UI isn’t the prettiest but it’s a neat and pretty powerful music library manager, and it supports internet radio.
Finally a fellow quod libet user!
I use Deadbeef for music, Radiotray-ng for internet radios and if I listened to podcasts, I guess I’d use a dedicated application.
