Songbird - Portable Audio Player version based on the engine, the popular browser Firefox. Focused on music playback, not only from the hard drive, but also from the network. For design, Songbird - it is not so much a music player as a music web browser. Songbird is able to work with various formats of music files and music services.
You can create a multimedia library that helps you organize all music files on your computer into a single file, while it can also include compositions that are in active network playlists.
Search for new songs on the web by using line searches, implemented by analogy with Firefox. Songbird offers ten search engines. You enter the name of the song being sought, after which search results are automatically added to the playlist Web. Transfer of selected elements in the music library, complete preservation of the music.
When you first run the program asks you to specify the folder in which you want to search for music in order to make a single playlist. This process takes a few seconds, then you can begin to work with the music library. As a bonus, you can track changes in some locations. For example, if you download music from the Internet, it will be automatically added to the library.
You can subscribe for any resource. It appears as a separate playlist with constantly updated data. By default, the list is updated every day.
In addition to standard playlists, Songbird allows you to organize the "smart playlists". List of playable tracks compiled on the basis of a complex search query. You can specify any number of search criteria with a variety of conditions of entry, and then limit the duration of the sound list and make it flexible sorting.
Songbird can play Internet radio stations, visit the online stores with music, look for the audio data in the blogs. All this allows you to permanently assign a program title of "music browser".
Songbird interface can operate in two modes. Cumbersome business application window is minimized in a compact strip, which represented only about the current song, and navigation on the current playlist. Feathered theme music browser developed in the metaphor of a "change of plumage" - so called developers support themes.
All topics have names associated with birds. By default, Songbird looks like "Coal drake." The distribution is included, another theme that makes the program look like a "white dove". Frankly, to catch these similarities the average brain is very complicated, but the desire of authors to give some kind of technology for skins as a romantic aura to be welcomed.
From the Firefox browser songbird taken a programming interface plug-ins. At the time of this writing, the official website you can get six extensions. Certainly, as is the case with the browser, most of the specialized functions will be given at the mercy of third party developers.
