Banshee 1.0 out n rockin’ !

I have long wanted a player in Gnu/Linux which could manage my libraries, play BOTH audio and video with ease. And here it is now fulfiled with the new Banshee 1.0 . Below is a screenshot of its library interface :

And with the help of the lyric plugin ( By available at Christian Martellini ) the lyric fetching is also incorporated.Screenshot of this plugin :

You can download the Banshee Lyric Plugin from here : http://gtk-apps.org/content/show.php/Banshee+Lyrics+plugin?content=64837

The Banshee 1.0 is not up in the Hardy Repos yet so get the app by adding these to your sources.list and download it.

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/banshee-team/ubuntu hardy main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/banshee-team/ubuntu hardy main

But I face some problems while playing videos ( I have to change to some other pane and back to ‘Now Playing’ to make the video persistent otherwise it all black – some bug I suppose ).Anyway this player is worth a shot, Do try it.
