Linux Audio

Clementine: your entire music back catalog at your fingertips


You can listen to songs simultaneously from any source, including external drives, Dropbox and Grooveshark; a notable advantage.


It's a little heavier than other players like Banshee or Tomahawk, so it is not the best choice for old computers (despite first impressions).

Clementine is one of the most used Linux players on the market. Seamlessly manage and play your whole music collection with this simple, lightweight programs.

Good looking

Clementine boasts a slick, minimalist interface. A panel to the left gives you direct access to your music library, playlists, portable devices, and the Internet, which can also gain you access to lyrics, and artist and track info. On the right, Clementine displays your songs in a list.

Song library

Perhaps the most important aspect of Clementine is that it’s a great way to manage your songs. No matter whether you have them stored on your local disk or on an external drive, you can access them easily. It’s also possible to use Clementine to play your songs stored in the cloud, since it’s compatible with Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox and Box. Clementine also supports services like Spotify, Jamendo, Magnatune, IceCast, SoundCloud and many more.

Clementine can create as many playlists as you want, but you can also import them (supports M3U, PLS, XSPF and ASX). If your albums are missing covers, Clementine will download them from Amazon or the Last.FM. You can also edit MP3 or OGG track tags, or convert songs between different formats.

Clementine also has a remote control for Android that lets you control the player from your mobile device, as long as your computer and your phone are connected to the same local network (Wi-Fi, for example).


Clementine is a true contender for your number one music player: it’s simple, lightweight, and allows you to load up as many songs as you like.
