There’s a new open-source media player in town called Clementine Player, which has just been released in its 1.0 version. It’s the work of a pair of developers, and lets people play songs stored on their hard drives, as well as accessing internet radio and streaming services – currently Spotify and Grooveshark in the latter case. “We’ve also added a Global Search feature that allows you to easily find music that’s either in your library or on the Internet,” explains the company. “Other features include audio CD support, more transcoder options, an improved settings dialog, smarter album cover searches, and loads of bug fixes.” Clementine can be compared to Tomahawk, a media player that’s getting rave reviews from music fans and industry folk alike. However, Clementine’s relationship with Grooveshark – it recently ran a competition to give away 150 three-month Grooveshark Anywhere subscriptions – may not endear it to some rightsholders.
