Amarok has been my media player of choice for many years on linux. The team has really put in some great effort into making it work on windows too and now I can install and use it on windows without a glitch! Thanks!!

Although not officially supported on windows, I found the installer with requisite KDE bits to work without problems.
Used to find it okay to use on linux, but the interface on windows seems rather broken - played files fine, but could do little else, including volume control, and buttons seemed unexpectedly inactive.
In short I wouldn't recommend this for windows.

My experience with this software on a mac is horrible. You have to build it yourself and it is not updated very often.

It's not really available for Windows, is available through KDE for Windows, and to say you need to install a whole desktop environment just to use one player is not exactly the idea of availability

Is amarok able to autotag files by scanning them as winamp does? It's an important feature for me. Thx.

This programs does good, before I found a nice iPod program I would use this to make my playlists change and add songs. It has some nice display features when it is playing, and can make nice playlists, but for songs I usually just use Totem/Gnome player.
