Rhythmbox: Not for huge audio libraries

Rhythmbox crashes when it tries to index huge libraries of audio files (think: 100 GB+). If you must have your library indexed by your player software, try Amarok instead. I prefer audio software that does NOT index the files, that way there is no added logic, no overhead, etc. etc.

The simplicity of this player makes it awesome. Or at least more awesome than iTunes.

The only really good thing bout this player, and i believe this is why it remains as the official Ubuntu player, its the stability. It rarely crashes. The other thing is that it requires very little settings adjustments. It just works. However, as far as GUI and [most other player] features.. is VERY outdated.. or at least it just looks that way, which is a major drawback for new users.. and [relatively] old ones like me. :(

This is by far the WORST media player I've seen on ANY platform. The GNOME project should be embarrassed to have chosen this as their "official" jukebox.
