What is Amarok?

  • Dynamic Playlists Create playlists that automatically update based on complex, but easy to use, constraints. e.g., tracks from around the year 1967

  • Context View Customize the supplemental information related to your music with the Plasma powered Context View.

  • Database Importing Import your iTunes or old Amarok 1.4 database and keep your playcounts, statistics, and scores.

  • Scriptable Services Integrate other web services into Amarok with community developed services. Here are just a few: Greek Radio Streams, and NPR.

  • Bookmarking Mark positions in tracks to come back and listen to later. Automatic bookmarking will ensure you can pick up where you left off in that podcast or audio book

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.
