Selected Test Results

What works

  • Audio playback 
    • mp3
    • flac
    • flac with cue partitions
    • ogg
  • Playback device selection
  • Library management
  • Theming and different visuals
  • Updating metadata from internet
  • Remote control plugin with Android app (network and firewall settings might have to be adjusted)
  • Auto DJ


What does not

Without some native Windows libraries the application will fail to start. See Workarounds.

Other issues include:

  • Any link to outside of the program (file managers, google, last.fm) doesn't respond.
  • Album cover sizing does not work optimally
  • Pop-up notifications are hit and miss

Workarounds

The default installation requires some native Windows libraries and codecs:

winetricks dotnet40 mfc42 xmllite d3dx9 gdiplus vcrun2008 wmp10 windowscodecs

In addition:

  • Album covers do become visible if you scale the window appropriately. They don't downsample so on a 1280 x 1024 monitor, it fits, but only just.
  • Pop-up notifications are best disabled


What was not tested

  • Last FM scrobbling and other third parties
  • More exotic codecs
  • File transcoding
  • CD ripping

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

It's also worth noting that MusicBee has stopped support for Windows XP. As such, your wine prefix must be set to Windows 7.

It's quite dependant on some libraries, but it does work. The most important aspects, music playback and library management, work fine and the plethora of playback options all seem to work. For discussion and other tips, this long running forum thread proved to be very useful:
