Start with a killer

To start the blog not with an obligatory 'Let's start this' post, but with something worth reading, I want to present the mighty nildience (null audience) the best Linux audio playing app: Amarok.
  1. Collection of your music based on the top directory - i.e. you just say 'my music is in /home/aigarius/mp3' and it rebrowses that dir each time it starts to find new music.
  2. Automatic rating based on play/skip ratio - just listen to what you like and skip songs you don't like and soon Amarok will be able to tell the difference.
  3. Get lyrics in 1 or 2 clicks - I love this feature.
  4. Control the player regardless of your current app - shortcuts with 'Windows' key work everywhere.
  5. Very nice playlist management within your music collection.
  6. Least played songs - either to try something long forgotten or to free your hard drive.
These are the features I like the best about Amarok. Please comment on what you like to find in your audio player.
