    Has Anyone Checked Out Songbird?

    This is from their website.

    It would be interesting to see if it will play nice with the squeezebox

    ...Songbird is a complete desktop media player or "jukebox" with a uniquely open approach to Internet digital media network services.

    Judging from the screenshots it's VERY close to iTunes. Wouldn't suprise me if Apple servers them with a cease and desist...

    I really like this.......

    The Songbird Media Player is a desktop media player, built atop XULRunner platform (also used by Mozilla Foundationĺs Firefox and Thunderbird), and will run on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Just like Firefox, it will be open to extensions!

    please slim..? make it play nice with the squeezebox..please(oh boy, that's sad)

    :P

    Sounds like an ideal complement to Vlad's BeatDown server project.
    Songbird could issue player control commands to BeatDown's web services
    (XML-RPC and SOAP) interface. BeatDown could then use slim TCP protocol
    to control the players.

    And Mozilla XUL Runner is cross-platform. Interesting.
