I'm new to linux, and currently running 10.04. I know I can run Itunes through wine, but like most people i love my ipod but hate itunes! Just wondering which media player is best?


I want to be able to pull the music off my ipod and then sync it with my pc (needs to play aac). If that media player is good enough that I only have to have one media player, all the better!

Thanks in advance!

I use Rythmbox to add /delete songs on my Ipod.
however the only problem is, that you can't save a playlist on the Ipod.
You can create one, but once you eject the Ipod, the playlist wont save.

For this, I use GTKPOD.
It's an Ipod manager. It wont play music, but will let you move things around, and create playlist without any problems

I use RythmBox :P simply drag and drop, or delete without any hassle

ive never tried to make a playlist using Rythmbox, i usually just make one up using the actual iPod :P i'll give it a go now and see if it saves to the iPod

Yes that would be correct #-o

you can create but it will not save the playlist to the iPod

That's what I thought. I was hoping there is a way to rename the playlist right on the Ipod itself.
However that GTKPOD tool is very useful until they fix Rythmbox.

Try http://floola.com I think it handles playlists.

Yep Playlists > On-the-go > press and hold center button on songs you want to add to playlist and screen flashes to confirm added to playlist
