      davidhill01 Clementine is available for 32-bit systems (of the sort that are perfect for recycling as jukeboxes). Strawberry only has 64-bit packages available.

      I really enjoy the plug-in features that Audacious offers that I can't find anywhere else. For example, the built-in Dynamic Range Compressor (DRC) is ideal for me because I work in an office with other computer users. I set the DRC to eliminate most of the dynamic range, then I set my volume high enough to hear my tunes. I'll hear all of the music from the loud to quiet portions and I won't miss a thing!

      Some users think Winamp is a great alternative to Clementine, some don't.
      pasiojunk Winamp is So much more complicated than Clementine and Strawberry. Both the aforementioned are so easy to use. Winamp by comparison is like flying the space shuttle. Winamp is an EXCELLENT program but is not similar to Cmementine.

      pros, cons and recent comments
      flexid2000 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.
      Positive comment over 2 years ago

      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.
