It's a shame that the devs dismissively dropped support for 10.6. A lot of the people who are looking for an iTunes alternative are also the people who dislike the iOS-ification of more current versions of OS X and the comglomeration that is iTunes these days, so in effect they are dropping support for many of the very people who have an interest in this succeeding. That said, it's not an easy way to play music. One has to add songs to a playlist first, and if the playlist already has stuff in it, new songs get added to the bottom of it. Later this becomes a mess, but would be great for a party. I can clear the playlist with a button, but if I do that playlist loses the songs I originally put there. So to play one needs to make a new playlist first. I made playlists of the folders of songs I like, but then the header gets crowded and the titles get unreadable. Simply put, the UI is not competely sorted. It has some nice features and plays with good sound quality, but really all I want to do is select a folder and play the contents, not jockey files around. Also, playing from the folder side it supports fewer formats than playing from the DB side for some reason, perhaps because it can't use Apple's built-in stuff? I use Rockbox on my little Sansa Clip, when I want to play a folder I select a it, select a song in it and hit play, it plays the rest of the folder without any intervention, regardless of format. It starts up almost instantly with 72 GB of files on it, without having to catalog. Why can't any desktop player do this? The reason for this preference is so I can decide what an album is for myself, without all the "helpful" labeling and categorising that most players want to do, or without delving into metadata when all I want to do is move a file somewhere else or delete it. It's easier for me to put stuff where I want it using the Finder and not have to "find" a file for a DB that's out of date.. If I move track 7 out of the folder it no longer is part of the album, and if I like a remix to finish off with it becomes part of the album even though its metadata would show it to be part of another album.

Really easy-to-use music player being a great alternative to iTunes. In my opinion, Clementine is more clear and simple. I like the way it is designed. Once, I recommended it to a friend and he was very thankful fro such an advice. He also appraised it's functionality and convenience. So, better try than talk.

Just to update my previous review: I've been using Clementine all day/everyday since March (it provides the ambient music at my workplace). Mostly using the "Dynamic random playlist" mode, which creates a random playlist, but allows you to add/subtract/rearrange tracks at will. This mode alone makes the app worthwhile, as it gives you much more control/flexibility than a standard random mode. In general, Clementine is a wonderful desktop audio player. Good sound quality, stable (it's crashed exactly two times in six months of very heavy use), and (mostly) full featured -- including the very helpful remote app for Android devices. However, It's within that feature-set where Clementine has it's two major problems -- in that it doesn't seem to recognize any MTP device I've tried, nor does it recognize audio CDs, let alone rip them. If they can't get these features working in future releases, I'd recommend dropping them altogether. Additionally, there are a few bugs that pop up from time to time. Set album covers not transferring to the individual tracks seems to be the most common/noticeable. But that, and other problems that arise, are pretty inconsequential, and easily remedied. So if you've been looking for a free iTunes alternative, you've found it. I urge you to give it a look for yourself. All of my co-workers have become converts, and I have a strong suspicion you'll become one too.

I just started trying this app because for the last few months my iTunes plays some Songs about half-way through and then skips to the next Song. There's a LOT of people on the Net who are having the same problem for Years now and Apple doesn't seem to give a crap.

So, Clementine seems pretty cool (and doesn't Skip in the middle of Songs). My only problem is how to use their Playlist... and there's no Help Pull-Down with the app and nothing I could find on their site..

So, I updated my desktop CPU and in the process lost ppc emulation. Meaning, I lost my beloved Audion :( It had been a few years, so I give the almighty iTunes another go. Somehow, I hate it even more (I didn't think that was possible. How this app squashed all competitors is beyond me). So, I’m in need of a mp3 player that has a feature set at least near to Audion’s (I know skins are a dream of the past). I settle on Nightingale for a couple months. And while it’s decent, it’s general clunkiness eventually gets to me. I go for a hail mary, and see if MacAmp has been ported to Intel (no) and MacUpdate recommends Clementine instead. What is this Clementine? Clementine is really, really nice. That’s what it is. So nice, I’ve been using it for a few months, and I still can’t believe it’s free. Granted, straight out of the box the sound was shrill, much like iTunes. But unlike iTunes, the eq managed to cut the shrillness and add a lot of warmth. No, it doesn’t sound as good as Audion, but nothing does. It sounds as good as Nightingale and not nearly as bad as iTunes. Initially, the need for both a library and playlist seems redundant (and it is), but the “smart playlists” set in the library circumvents this. It says it supports MTP or mass-storage USB players, but doesn’t seem to recognize my Creative Zen (so XNJB is still going to get lots of use) Lastly, it’s not exactly lean on memory, but nowhere near as greedy as Nightingale and iTunes. Now that we’ve addressed the minuses, in the plus column we have everything else. It has a robust feature and customization set that’s intuitive and even enjoyable to use. So while I could sit here and list every aspect I like (visualizations, MusicBrainz connectivity, interactivity with just about every online music service, etc, etc, etc), let me just save a lot of keystrokes and reiterate that it’s really, really nice. So nice, I can’t believe it’s free. If you’ve only been using iTunes due to lack of a quality alternative. you now have one. Take advantage.

I won't leave a proper review because I stopped trying it after the first launch (on 10.9.5), when I dropped a folder on the app's icon and it crashed! That's enough for me as it was precisely what I was searching for (an app that plays a dropped folder, not a crashing one... :-D ).

I am trying Clementine and so far i like it. I am happy that when i launch Clementine it does NOT startup iTunes like so many other players want to do. Even with my limited use at this time i rate it in the 4 or 5 range. Oh, and i love the price of this software: fits my budget these days.

I want to try out Clementine. Until I'm comfortable with it, assuming I like, it, I don't want to abandon iTunes just yet. Is it safe to point Clementine to the actual iTunes Music folder, so that I don't have to maintain two separate libraries? It seems to me if Clementine makes any changes to the files, this might corrupt the iTunes library/indexes/caches, etc. Since iTunes would be unaware anything was altered. My iTunes music library is over 40 GB, so I'd rather not have to maintain two copies while I play with Clementine, but I will if there is a risk of messing up iTunes. Thanks in Advance for any feedback, comments!

Does Clementine support Home Sharing (so make use of the misic library of another computer in your network)? I currently use iTunes for accessing the music library of my Mac Mini 'iTunes server' but iTunes drives me nuts with its limited functionality for shared library (i.e. playlist view won't transfer when I open a playlist from the shared library).

A player that doesn't support lossy and lossless audio formats like flac and Apple lossless is useless for me. Since clementine can't even bother to indicate exactly what formats it supports I can't bother to try it out. I'm sticking with Vox.

It's a lot of fun to use this player. I'm partial toward any attempt to port FOSS/GNU stuff to Mac. It is stable and easy to install. It looks and feels just like Amarok on KDE, and that gives me nice warm fuzzies inside. But the problem is that it looks and feels just like Amarok on KDE. Oh, did I mention that it looks and feels just like Amarok on KDE? Oh well. I was going to point out that Amarok 2.7 is available through Macports, but with numerous dependency errors that may take hours to sort out. Clementine will serve excellently in the meantime!

A welcome addition, but sadly it's still quite a work in progress. I've had music turn to static and skip while it's loading the "mood" bars or whatever. There's a lot of cool features it has that iTunes doesn't, but overall it's a bit clunky. For example, I don't like how it automatically assumes you want to see a playlist and append to it just by playing a song, etc. More seriously, it makes the fans on my powerful laptop go off loudly as well. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to stick with iTunes because of these problems (mainly making my fans go nuts), but I will keep a close eye out for updates and hope to switch to this away from iTunes in the future if problems are addressed.

I only just started using Clementine, so I am not going to rate it, but I have to say that I am shocked -- SHOCKED, I tell you -- that there appears to be no documentation for it. Granted, to get up and running is quite easy, but there are a fair number of buttons and other thingies in the UI, e.g. "Mood" (WTH is that about???). I went to the clementine forum and found a thread on documentation -- or lack there of -- and was pointed to one wiki page: http://code.google.com/p/clementine-player/w/list Why couldn't the developer(s) provide a link to at least this on the application's homepage??? Bottom line is: I'm really put off by software whose designer's can't be bothered to point new users to any sort of user's manual or guide. That said, I like the way artists and their albums are organized; however, one of my albums -- from my iTunes library -- is mis-marked as "Unknown". It shows up in the right place with all the correct information in iTunes, and I have checked the metadata/tags and they appear to be in order, so I'm wondering what the deal is with that. Also, some album artwork shows up in Clementine, but not all of it; in iTunes all my music has cover art. I also like the Growl support Clementine has -- as I do Vox's. So yes, Clementine is a purdee light-weight audio player with many of the same features and functions as iTunes, without the lobster-trap consumer crap, i.e. the iTunes Store and such, of iTunes, but it also seems to have some glitches to it. Perhaps fooling around with it some, I will figure out these aforementioned issues, but as is, it leaves a bit to be desired, and I most definitely don't see its superiority over iTunes.

Thanks to the developers for this excellent FREE application. I like the way it offers song information and artist information with the track that is playing. Does a lot without asking for much from the user. Yes, the interface does have a Linux look about it, but it works well enough and the price is right.

I like it for playing FLACs, APEs, ALACs, etc., understanding CUEs, not-necessity of make a music DB. It's simple and smart. It's almost as good as Foobar2000, which is the best music player/handler, IMHO.

Not bad, but it very badly needs a Cocoa front end with a nice Mac-like layout. The default Qt-based UI just doesn't cut it. It might work fine on the amalgamated mess found on the desktop of a Linux user, but it sticks out like a sore thumb on Mac OS. Also, many of the application's design decisions are strange; for instance, the three separate search fields present in the main window seem redundant and pointless when they could have just had a single context-aware search field.

Clementine is a good ,easy to use music player on many levels. The sound quality seems to be good, though I am using a downstream processor so it's hard to make an objective comparison. The integration with existing iTunes libraries is very good, as is the number of services like Last.fm that it integrates with. However it does not integrate with Pandora so I was not able to test this feature. The appearance can be off putting to some, having some experience with various linux distros it doesn't bother me. The graphic level display is nice though it might get visually tiring. The one feature that really stands out to me is the automatic lyric retrival *and* display. I wish more apps had this feature. While I still use iTunes for podcasts, iPod, etc… my primary music players are now Vox for listening to newly acquired music and Clementine for my music library.

I started following the Clementine project when I was using Kubuntu Linux. When I switched to the Mac, the interface needed some work but all the features were there. Now at version 1.0.1, it integrates seamlessly with the MAC and is a nice alternative to iTunes. iTunes keeps getting more bogged down with more and more, "stuff," I don't want. Clementine offers a good alternative media player that's easy to use and kudos to the open source project for developing such a great cross-platform, FREE, media player!

I like very much this player. I cannot really use it as it is now (0.7.1) on MBP with 10.6.8 fans are running like crazy. Hope in future update the problem is going to be solved. I'll check back later.

Upon launching this application under 10.6.8 on my Mac Pro system performance lags significantly. With the application in the foreground or background simply moving the cursor becomes torturous.
