This looked promising, but the Subsonic/Airsonic import takes forever for some reason, compared to something like Strawberry player (or Clementine), which’s a shame.

For what it’s worth, I’ve passed this comment onto the dev and they agree:

The airsonic one is quite slow. I had improved it over how slow it was originally… I should probably try examine it again and see if there’s any further ways to improve it

I can’t make any promises on their behalf (don’t hurt me, taiko), but the pace of this project has been incredibly fast for the past couple years and I wouldn’t be surprised to see some big improvements :)

Oh, thanks so much for passing this onto the devs!

I tried it and although I like some of its features and don’t like its forced dark mode aesthetics and how it displays my music, and also that doesn’t respect my windows manager and it uses that windows style buttons. I’ve trying to search for an elegant and functional music player because eOS default one started to bug for me (but its aesthetics are awesome) and tried Elisa which I loved, but it’s also pretty buggy now, so I don’t know what to do. I really loved all the thingies for scraping album arts, metadata and that it can be linked to musicbrainz.

There are lots of different color schemes as well as support for custom ones if the few lighter ones aren’t good enough. You can also force it to use your window manager’s buttons if you’d like. Both are in the settings menu.

I like the look and layout, will give it a shot! Not a huge listener from my computer much anymore but having something I like the look of more is always nice.

Still not as feature-rich and customizable as MusicBee.

It’s definitely more opinionated / less customizable than MusicBee, but I’ve found that it has infinitely more features that are relevant for music nerds.

Nothing will ever top MusicBee for me. It was one of, if not the only, major losses of migrating to Linux.

Definitely a lot of useful features, and they even included a Jellyfin library importer! The sad thing is that Jellyfin and Subsonic integrations don’t actually stream from the server, so the server never gets to update the play count based on Tauon.

Passed on to the dev, their response:

As for the playcount issue, that’s an oversight on my part, shouldn’t be too hard to fix for airsonic. Tho I hate dealing with jellyfin grumble grumble

Like I said above, this project moves fast and I wouldn’t be surprised to see this be fixed.
