    Clementine is available for 32-bit systems (of the sort that are perfect for recycling as jukeboxes). Strawberry only has 64-bit packages available.

  5. Quod Libet is a Gapless GTK+-based audio player written in Python. Its designed around the idea that you know how to organize your music better than we do. It lets you make playlists based on regular expressions (dont worry, regular searches work too).

    Quod Libet is vastly expandible with plugins leaving no wishes unanswered, reading the library is dead fast and it looks well on all gnome/xfce/lxde environments.

    It neatly integrates with the GTK environment which makes a very nice look. After studying the various features to tune queries it even equals clementine's intelligent playlist feature. A further plus: scanning a large music library is dead fast. I'll stick to it.
