Overall Opinion: When looking for a quality music player, not much needs to be asked for. If it can alphabetize and play an album in order, among other small features, I am set. Other things on my relatively small audio player checklist are gapless playback and playlists. Everything else is like icing on the cake. And that’s exactly what Rhythmbox is; basic, but it does the job. Among the common features of Rhythmbox is playlists. Making playlists is functional but, it takes too many unnecessary steps to simply add songs or re-order the tracks. Another essential is the ability to import music via compact disc. Even without CDs, there is a wide range of compatibility with various audio file formats thanks to GStreamer media frameworks. On a side note, Rhythmbox is compatible with iPod via USB connection. In addition to being lightweight on the CPU, it still comes a little packed with unique features. Rhythmbox’s main idiosyncracy is its involvement with the internet. Music fans who like to keep track of their listening habits with Last.fm, or the open source alternative Libre.fm, will be pleased to have a built-in scrobbler. No music library? Or just looking for something new to listen to? Rhythmbox also comes with FM radio and the ability to search and listen to Soundcloud tracks.
Pros: If you know how to use iTunes, you know how to use Rhythmbox. If you don’t know, it’s easy and intuitive to get the hang of the program. Rhythmbox is light on the RAM and one of the most stable Gnome music players available. Virtually no bugs since the developers are constantly working on the next update.
Cons: The iTunes style interface may not be aesthetically pleasing and logical in function to everyone. Creating, editing, and managing playlists are made to be an over-complicated task The Ubuntu version of Rhythmbox is a pain to update.
