By Codrut Nistor

Posted in Software

Songbird is an all in one free media player and free media manager altogether. Though this player is not so famous like the other players this freeware has some features that made it unique from the others. This free media manager manages music and media very simply and easily and let you keep your media library organized. You can also add features and functions by installing add-ons which are available in their official website.

The most interesting part of this player is it has a fully featured browser based on the Mozilla Firefox built inside the player and you can use it to import media streams and add-ons. This free media player is highly customizable and you can change its theme from the number of options available in the theme gallery. This free media organizer actually specializes in playing audio but recently the developers have also included video playback though the list of supported formats is still not very long.

Editing meta data is very easy and all the information about the artist and the song will be displayed from the internet when you play a song in this player though that might need installing some add-ons. The most unique add-on of this player is the Lyric Master add-on which shows lyrics inside the player window unlike all the other lyrics extensions that takes an extra window to show lyrics which is sometimes very annoying. You can also sync your portable device using Songbird and that includes the previous generations of iPods.
