Is there any decent iPod management software for linux available? I have a 6th generation iPod that I use only for music and it’s really the last thing that I keep my windows partition around for. The more I use linux, the more unintuitive iTunes feels. I had tried GTKPod in the past and one other, but they didn’t support the 6th gen iPods. I’d be happy with just a CLI copy type command!

  • You know, I want something like this for my (Android) phone. I use SyncThing, but managing individual songa or albums through it is a pain. I want a tool where I can easily select which music gets synced to my phone, and which automatically syncs back all music I put on my phone.

    I don’t need the 13 hours of Christmas music on my phone, but I often acquire new music from my phone.

    I’d love to hear of a good tool for music management; iTunes did a really good job of this.

      YouTube Music allows you to upload up to 20,000 tracks to your personal storage for free. And then you can just pre-download anything you want or you have anytime access to just stream your whole library, without the need to preload your device as if it were 2003.

      • I used to do this! I mostly self-host stuff now, and do have a streaming music server. Streaming doesn’t work in many situations - backpacking, airplanes, etc., and it’s nice to have music on my device without needing internet.
