#33 Replace Rhythmbox with GNOME Music in default install
Opened 2 years ago by catanzaro. Modified 4 months ago

We should replace Rhythmbox with GNOME Music in default install. In the past, when we discussed this, GNOME Music seemed somewhat slow and buggy and not really ready for prime time. It's had several rounds of performance improvements and stabilizations since then, and I think we've reached the point of diminishing returns where quality is going to improve more slowly now and there's less value in continuing to wait.

Regardless of what we decide regarding Music, we should remove Rhythmbox anyway, since Videos is a better default music player.


We discussed this issue at today's WG meeting but did not yet reach a consensus. Should continue discussion at a future meeting.

@aday, do we want to bring this up for discussion again?

I'm not sure. What was the conclusion of the last discussion?

It would be great to have Music replace Rhythmbox, as it is a much more consistent with the rest of the UX. My experience is that it still has issues though. The last time I tried it, I hit this issue, for example.

Well it's been another year.

I think Music is ready, but if the WG disagrees, let's at least remove Rhythmbox since Videos is a better default music player (given that it doesn't attempt to import every sound file played into a music database).
