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 

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.

What works

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.

Additional Comments

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.
