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 installed all recommended add-ons.

What does not

After the first installation, it crashed when trying to start itself. I had "Run Nightingale" checked. I re-installed. During the re-installation the previous one was said to be removed. The new installation did not fail on auto-start.

For some reason, it did not detect the library (/home/user/Music) on the second installation. This is why it did not fail. When I forced Nightingale to scan that directory - by unchecking and checking watch directory - Nightingale crashed.

This disfunction is repeatable.


What was not tested

Everything that required Music. I had not tested the browser either.

Additional Comments

If it won't scan a directory well, then it isn't functional. This may be completely attributable to Nightingale and have nothing to do with Wine. [1][2][3] I tested this just to see whether I was just having this trouble on Fedora for Bug 31413. I used Debian Wheezy's system-wine. I'm hoping the 1.11.1 won't have this issue.
