Best music player ever. Songbird 1.1.1 now with watched folders.

I’ve writ­ten before about Song­bird, the free, open-source music play­er based on the Moz­illa / Fire­Fox plat­form.

Basic­ally Song­bird rocks.

Well, now there’s extra-new-and-improved Song­bird good­ness as the update was released this even­ing, with the one sig­ni­fic­ant fea­ture it’s been lack­ing up ’till now — the ‘Watched Folder’ fea­ture.

To quote from the song­bird release email:

Watch Folders
You can choose to watch a folder hier­archy for changes and the con­tent will auto-magic­ally be impor­ted in your lib­rary. If a file is removed from the watched folder, the cor­res­pond­ing track will be deleted from your Lib­rary.

Of course, this isn’t the only new fea­ture in Song­bird, but for me, it’s the most import­ant.

If you’ve not tried Song­bird as an iTunes replace­ment, give it a go…it’s really worth the invest­ment, for Mac, PC and Linux.
