    File tree based media player?

    Ok people. Everyone is always talking about AmaroK, and Banshee, and other media players. What I want, is a bit different then most.

    I'm looking for a file tree based player. I can't stand most databases, as most of my music is untagged. I guess you could say I'm looking for something like nautilus, except with automatic syncing with my Sansa e260 (which has rockbox on it), built in podcast support, and the ability to actually play music internally would also be nice.

    So, is there a player out there that can do this, or am I up a creek w/o a paddle? Thank you very much.

    You can browse and play music via the filesystem with Amarok. I'm pretty sure you could sync it from there too. But really you should tag your music, it makes much more sense. Amarok will guess at tags from the file name so will do most of the hard work for you

    +1, thats what I do when I want to look in my file browser to play one or two songs in a folder, not to mention nautilus has tree views.. so a combo of nautilus and audacious is a good idea imo
