Banshee is a Linux-inspired player that helps you to organize your music and interact with other users via scrobbling to Last.fm.

Banshee plays most popular formats, allows you to rip music from your CDs and create your own audio CDs and MP3s for listening to music stations over the Internet. You can also subscribe to podcasts and download them automatically using Banshee.

Banshee has all the basic functions you would expect such as shuffle and repeat but also a few added bonuses such allowing you to see what others are listening to via scrobbling to last.fm. The Banshee community is quite lively and you can exchange favorite tracks. It's also highly extendible via a comprehensive extensions section that covers everything from Karaoke to a Lyric-finding app.

Banshee is a great alternative for those who are tired of bloated music applications or just want something a little different.

Changes

  • This release is a beta-quality technology preview with no device (iPod etc) support, CD support, or video support. We encourage you to test and report issues. Banshee for OS X is not yet as complete or as stable as our Linux releases.
