Linux music player

If anyone does know a music player for linux that's anywhere near as good as musicbee, please do tell me.

What I'm looking for:


  • Tracks View (I would have thought this was standard, but a surprising number of players don't have it)
  • Sync with phone (two way sync preferable)
  • Customisable hotkeys
  • Multiple artists/genres delimited by ;
  • Stop at end of track
  • file reorganisation (automatically move songs to music\artist\artist-track.mp3)


  • Customise layout (queue on right)
  • Now playing screen with queue
  • Auto-tag from internet
  • Dynamically generated playlist
  • Miniplayer
  • Tabbed interface with menubar below
  • Customise double click action (add to queue, rather than play immediately)

Players I have already tried

  • Rhythmbox
  • Clementine
  • Strawberry
  • DeaDBeeF
  • Lollypop
  • Quod Libet (this is the closest I have tried; and my favourite so far, but doesn't integrate with cinnamon's panel, among other things)
  • Others I can't remember, but will add later
