Because I can edit the meta-data of multiple files at a time, create custom filters and it has a ton of plugins.

Quod Libet Brilliant

I listen to classical music, and have a lot of complexity in the tagging (composer, genre, multi-disc, artist) and QL handles them with aplomb. It also lets me add my own tags: key, instrumentation, etc... Nice. But then I can build complex queries: "all recently added tracks that are baroque flute in the key of C".

Wow. Don't try that with iTunes. Oh yeah, I've got over 60Gb in FLAC, OGG, MP3 and it plays everything and searches it all.

High Power with a great interface!

Love it.

you need to customise first with plugins yet it is at least, a decent one amongst others

On LINUX, for my needs it's perfect. The only confusing thing was at the start in Preferences, pointing it at my music library. I knew it had to be finished, but it didn't bring up a window. Turns out it was hiding behind the prefs panel, could only see the player after closing the prefs. Best of all it leaves my own music folders intact, like 1by1. The font is big enough (unlike Clementine). It doesn't force any one view of your titles, there are several under the Browse menu item. The browse view I like most is called Album Collection. Until something better comes along, my search for the right player is over.

Best audio player on OS X small, unitrusive, does what you need it to do.

It reads Vorbis tags so you can mark multiple artists, composers, arrangers and so on and then listen to tracks where all these people are on. Quod Libet splits tags as every single music player should do.

For example, put Kendrick Lamar as an album artist on "Black Panther: The Album…" but set Vince Staples and Yugen Blakrok as artists of "Opps" with Sounwave and Ludwig Göransson as producers (composers) of the song, and in the list of people now you can choose music written by Kendrick, Vince, Yugen, Sounwave, and Ludwig.

It's the best music player I've found for Linux, and it's cross platform! Looks great with GTK3 themes, works with large libraries without getting slow, and has many nice features that actually work (e.g., playing from soundcloud).

Exactly what it says on the box

Very light-weight compared to the many music managers I have tried on Linux and on Windows. I can select specific tag fields to display, classify by, etc. Search results are updated instantly. Comes with an excellent tag editor too.
