Quod Libet Comments

.msi or .exe NOT available for WINdoze version

Comment by Ivan_Aurelius
about Quod Libet Nov 2015

I find the prospects offered by this app intriguing. Nonetheless, it is commonly known that WINdoze users DO NOT 'build' any apps.

I am presently using WINdoze 8.1, and though I have only used it for two (2) weeks, it has proven a stable OS (I have a firewall and implemented other security measures which always helps).

I would like to try this app, however, if you note that a WINdoze version is available, I ask you post an .msi or .exe version--anything else offered to the WINdoze end users is alien.

(In the interim, foobar2000 will serve as substitute.)

Nice taste in music, brah.



Quod Libet Brilliant

Positive Comment by tv0571
about Quod Libet Oct 2012

I listen to classical music, and have a lot of complexity in the tagging (composer, genre, multi-disc, artist) and QL handles them with aplomb. It also lets me add my own tags: key, instrumentation, etc... Nice. But then I can build complex queries: "all recently added tracks that are baroque flute in the key of C".

Wow. Don't try that with iTunes. Oh yeah, I've got over 60Gb in FLAC, OGG, MP3 and it plays everything and searches it all.

High Power with a great interface!

Love it.


Exactly what it says on the box

Very light-weight compared to the many music managers I have tried on Linux and on Windows. I can select specific tag fields to display, classify by, etc. Search results are updated instantly. Comes with an excellent tag editor too.

about Quod Libet Jun 2011

This is it! The best audio player, audio library manager, tag editor, replaygain scanner, album art fetcher for linux! It's lightweight GTK interface, together with it's low memory and processor footprint, simple but usefull interface with it's covert art displaying album library makes it the clear winner. Now with gapless playback it's unrivalled in the ugly world of bad music players around. There's a light at the end of the tunnel for linux audiophiles and collectors! Finally, I don't miss Foobar2000 anymore!

about Quod Libet Jun 2011

Quod libet is brilliantly simple. It's a music player, and once glance at the compact UI will help you understand that.

Not strong with plugins, but this isn't a big project. And in all frankness, that's what I like. It's a list of my albums, and a tag editor (in a separate application). :)
