Amarok 2 screenshot peview! :)

**Update**
Added some Amarok on windows screenshots :)

For those who don't know about Amarok, Amarok 2 is the free cross platform music player, with support for album art, lyrics, Wikipedia and last.fm integration.

Amarok 2 is not out yet as it is going to be released with KDE 4.2 sometime in January 2009 before KDE 4.2 :) in 1 to 3 months, Amarok team released beta 2 few days ago, Amarok 2 is cross platform i.e. available for Mac, Windows & Linux (:D).

It supports Last.fm integration, Jamendo, Magnatune, Shoutcast Radio service,Mp3tune service etc...

the best feature I like about Amarok2 is Dynamic Playlist.

for collection and statistics it uses MySQL embedded


Lyrics script fetches lyrics as soon as you play the song




Internet Services:

Last.fm




Shoutcast!
