Songbird is a Cross Platform Free & Open Source Desktop Media Player Designed for the World Wide Web

Songbird is a FREE & Open Source customizable music player

Songbird is an open-source customizable music player that is always under active development. Its is a new type media player, specifically designed with the future in mind. While most media players are still focusing on local music only, Songbird is currently looking to the constantly-changing landscape of the World Wide Web for guidance. What the crap does that mean? Simply put, Songbird allows you to ‘play’ the web. Instead of needing separate applications to search for, download, and listen to music, Songbird allows you to do it all from one simple program, with an astounding level of integration between the Web and your music.

Songbird views web pages as dynamic playlists to play, save, download or subscribe to much like an RSS feed would be subscribed to with RSSOwl. And just like RSSOwl, SONGBIRD IS 100% COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE, OPEN SOURCE, AND TOTALLY CUSTOMIZABLE WITH ADD-ONS.
