      VLC Media Player vs Nightingale opinions
      This alternative is disputed. VLC Media Player is still a legitimate alternative to Nightingale, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      VLC has powerful and diverse player capabilities, but offers none of the music library management or extensibility that Nightingale did. Calling it an alternative because it plays music is like calling a home movie an alternative to a vacation.

      VLC is missing the Media Library functionality of Nightingale. It's just a player.
