ï»¿Nightingale is a community based fork of the Songbird Media player distributed under the GNU GPL and portions (XULRunner and Mozilla libs) licensed under the Mozilla MPL/BSD license. The goal of Nightingale is to create a Media Player, which will eventually use only system libraries to conserve space. Currently, some libraries are still bundled, but progress is being made to change this fact. This git tree is based on the Songbird 1.11 tree, rebranded and enhanced for Nightingale. It's a reflection of what our Xul 6+ releases will be like.
I was not able to play a single song. I only have .ogg files. I don't think that that was the problem. I had to restart the program three times and cancel the updating of the library to keep the program from crashing.
What does not
It is generally unusable in its current state.
What was not tested
The gecko-based browser.
It really isn't usable as a music player if it continuously crashes at load & won't play a song if I do the most simple task: I selected one song to play and it could not play it.
