[News] Firefox Film, Firefox-related Media Player Challenges Apple

Hash: SHA1

Firefox on film!

,----[ Quote ]
| We’ve launched a new video section on mozilla.com to help bring some of the 
| many great features of Firefox alive.  The feature-specific videos are 
| narrated by the people who helped bring them to Firefox.  The new video 
| section even includes a walk through on how to install Firefox — perfect to 
| help people make the switch.    


Open source media player takes aim at iTunes

,----[ Quote ]
| Perhaps you’ve already heard – the folks at Mozilla have come up with a media 
| player that is giving iTunes a run for its money.  Songbird, a Mozilla 
| opensource player, is an Mp3 player, but apparently much more – a media 
| browser that is as much about media discovery and management as it is about 
| playback.    
| Every time you start Songbird, it scans iTunes for any changes – any new 
| imports, purchases, etc. so whatever you do there is quickly and seamlessly 
| incorporated into Songbird.  The big difference is that Songbird is running 
| Firefox ,VLC Player, and SQLite underneath its friendly face opening up a 
| whole new world of interacting with the internet through media.    



Distro Update: Musix GNU+Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Other than these differences, Musix is a pretty standard distribution, but a
| good choice if you want audio and video applications at your fingertips.
| Additionally, Musix is 100% free (as in freedom), so, if that matters to you,
| that is an added bonus.


Songbird 1.0

,----[ Quote ]
| Songbird is a good audio player, no doubt about it.
| I only tested it for about an hour, but it seemed stable to me.
| But I will never use it on my Ubuntu pc’s.
| I’m a Compiz Fusion guy and like my apps to integrate with the DE (Desktop
| Enviroment, aka Gnome).


Music and browsing take flight in Songbird

| Music and browsing mashup Songbird has kicked the remnants of its shell to
| the curb.


Songbird’s Open-Source Music Player Finally Takes Flight

,----[ Quote ]
| Way back in February of 2006, I wrote about an early version of Songbird, a
| music-playing app that aspired to be an open-source rival to iTunes. I was
| guardedly positive. It took way longer than I would have guessed, but the
| Songbird folks finally unveiled an official version 1.0 of the application
| today. This final release bears surprisingly little resemblance to that first
| version. And while I’m still digging into it, I’m impressed.


Open Source iTunes Competitor Songbird Officially Released

,----[ Quote ]
| Songbird is like an open source version of iTunes that handles just about
| everything that program does, while swapping out the iTunes store interface
| in favor of the world's music blogs.


10 of the Best Songbird Add-ons

,----[ Quote ]
| The first stable version of Songbird has been unleashed. Considered by many
| as the Firefox of media players due to its extensibility, this open source
| iTunes replacement has a bright future ahead.


A media player for the times: Songbird

,----[ Quote ]
| After about two years in the works, Pioneers of the Inevitable have released
| Songbird, a Mozilla-based music player, with which, POTI aims to do for music
| what Mozilla did with Firefox: provide an open source customizable
| multiplatform music player.


Songbird 1.0.0 Released [Featured Download]


Songbird gets ready to fly with 1.0 release candidate

,----[ Quote ]
| The Songbird developers have contributed extensively to bring cross-platform
| support to GStreamer, an open source multimedia framework that is used
| extensively on Linux. GStreamer is now used as the Songbird media backend
| across all platforms, improving the performance and reliability of audio
| playback. In addition to supporting MP3, FLAC, and OGG across all platforms,
| GStreamer also supports WMA on Windows and AAC on Windows and Mac OS X.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
