Recently I've decided to start using music streaming services insted of my local library
It's because I use ubuntu and setting up iTunes through wine is hell

So the thing is that, although Spotify supports using local files ubuntu 20.04 client crashes when I try to add a music source
Also i"m afraid i"m unable to add local music to my playlists

I live in Belarus and some music is blocked (or censored only) for me, so I really need to have access to local files

Is there even a point of using Spotify then? I like the UI, the automatic playlists and the speed, but music availability is crucial for me

    Also rhythmbox can't replace is not enough for me

    It's not that pretty and the functionality is poor compared to Spotify

    @alert tried audacity yet? It's a WinAmp of Linux :)

    Clementine? Used to be my favourite.

    DeadBeef? if you need it as simple as it gets.

    FFS, there is VLC that can be skinned and dressed any way you like [assuming you find the skins you like]

    Why did you decide to use streaming services instead of local files?

    I agree the automatic playlist generation and music discovery is 👍🏻 but I don’t like the idea of downloading the same songs repeatedly.

    @Root you can cache music if you need to, so there is no problem

    Who the hell would even want to touch iTunes if they don't own apple devices.
