    music player/manager not unlike itunes

    Does anyone know of a player/manager similar in functionality to itunes?

    Basically, I have about 30 gig of music - sometimes I just let it play at random any track from the library. What I would like to do is, if I hear a track I like at the time - right click and add it to a playlist, then this is where it gets tricky - I would like to grab all the actual mp3 files from that playlist and transfer them to my phone.

    I can add songs to a playlist in rhythmbox, but I cant grab all the mp3 files associated with that playlist.

    cheers

    Have you tried Amarok?
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install amarok
    It's very nice! I manage ~100Gb of mp3 with it... It will even let you drag and drop (holding CTRL while doing this so you copy the files and not move them) from the play list to anywhere as long as it can be mounted(i.e., removable disk, mp3 player or even your phone though I haven't tried it on the phone... )

    Amarok is the way to go. One of the best music programs ever made.
