What is MusicBee?

Manage your music as a library, as playlists or as folders on the file-system. Organize, browse and find music on your computer, on portable devices and on the web. Small or large collections are handled with ease. Have folders watched for new tracks and added to your library, with the option to tag the files from an Inbox beforehand. Also manage and download Podcast subscriptions and listen to your favourite radio stations, including those from Shoutcast, Jamendo and Last.fm.

Tag music easily, with the full complement of IDv2.3 tags available for use and custom tags that can be configured to track other less common types of information. Play MP3, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, WMA and other formats and optionally have those tracks scrobbled to Last.fm. You are not restricted to music files on your computer - you can play video files and streams from the web as well. Playlists are automatically created from MP3 blogs and web pages you visit.

Securely rip tracks from your CD collection as individual files or as a single album file with an embedded cue sheet. You can also have your rips validated against AccurateRip.com for extra assurance. Synchronize music files, podcasts and playlists from your library, or music files from any folder to many portable devices. These include iPods, iTouch/iPhones, MTP devices (most portable devices other than iPods), and USB devices. You can let MusicBee automatically transfer an assortment of your most frequently played tracks or drag and drop files manually to the device yourself.

Convert music files from one format to another without losing tag values; normalize the volume of your files so you don't have to keep adjusting the volume; update missing tags and album artwork from the web; and more.

I was trying music management software from top to bottom. Foobar, itunes, winamp, etc. MusicBee was 6 or 7th position. The first ones disappointed me for one reason or another. And my last chance was this one MusicBee. I was not expecting very much. And what a surprise! This player is amazing! It has a lot of features and it a lot of settings... It is an amazing piece of software. It is light and works perfectly. I am in love with it. Give it a chance!

MusicBee is mostly maintained and created by one man Stephen Mayall. This is the biggest strength because the passion of the developer makes sure that most or ALL of the drawbacks of the player are smoothed out as soon as the user complains about it in the forums. if they can't be due to a reason then SM mentions it in the replies.

The interface of the player is the BEST I have seen so far in managing so many complicated views and information for any playing track. This player is what I use for arranging the 7000+ mp3s in my folders in any way I want. As mentioned before, the seamless Last.fm integration and ability to resync playcount allows one to format their pc and start fresh without having to worry about their playcount as per the player stats.

The online tagging system of the software is great though I personally still prefer Picard. But I must admit the album art collection in UNSURPASSED even in dedicated softwares for album art collection.

This along with a lot other features make this the best music player that money (it's free but still) can buy!

Where's Opus support? Owner took it out, and in latest versions does not work even if it has the codec in "Codecs" folder, why would anyone take the best most modern open source codec out?

Wonderful application! I've been looking for a music player for windows that could rival iTunes and this. is. it. No other player comes close foobar, aimp, and media-monkey all fall short in my opinion.
