Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

clementine music player

Clementine, a cross-platform music player inspired by Amarok 1.4, has reached version 1.1, getting podcast support with gpodder.net integration, modbar support along with other new features.

Clementine already had support for quite a few online services, such as Grooveshark, Spotify, Last.fm, Icecast, Jamendo, Magnature and others, and even more were added in the latest Clementine 1.1.: Soundcloud and jazzradio.com. 

The changelog also mentions support for indexing and playing music from Google Drive, but this feature was missing in my test, either because of a bug or maybe this feature is not available for Linux users yet.

Other changes in Clementine 1.1:
  • Podcast support with integration with gpodder.net
  • Moodbar support
  • Support top lists in Spotify (eg. top 100)
  • Support "My Music" in Grooveshark
  • Show nearby concerts for an artist using the Songkick API
  • Show .mka, .ape and .wv in file view
  • Make the grouping of global search results configurable
  • Updated global search UI
  • Add support for darklyrics as a lyrics source
  • Add Discogs as an album cover provider
  • Many bug fixes
