    VLC Media Player vs Banshee opinions
    This alternative is disputed. VLC Media Player is still a legitimate alternative to Banshee, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    VLC Media Player is a media player. It's very good at it. Banshee is more than that. Banshee is a way to organize many types of media and access them all in a single interface. It's really more of a media organizer and player in one. VLC really isn't a replacement for it.

    This isn't a media organizer like Banshee was. It is a great media player, but not really a replacement for Banshee.
