Recently I mentioned about free replacement of iTunes for Windows. I got mails from many readers who wanted a similar replacement for Linux. Today I found one good free replacement of iTunes for Linux.
Gtkpod is platform independent graphical user interface for iPod. Gtkpod is completely free. It supports the first to fifth Generation ipods including the iPod mini, iPod Photo, iPod Shuffle, iPod nano, and iPod Video. iPod touch and iPhone are supported only if they have been jailbroken.
Here are some of the features of this free iTunes replacement for Linux:
- Import the existing contents of your iPod.
- Add MP3, WAV, M4A (non-protected AAC), M4B (audio book), podcasts, and various video files (single files, directories or existing playlists) to the iPod.
- View, add and modify Cover Art.
- Create and modify playlists, including smart playlists.
- Remove and export tracks from your iPod.
- You can choose the charset the ID3 tags are encoded in from within gtkpod. The default is the charset currently used by your locale setting.
- Browse the contents of your local harddisk by album/artist/genre by adding all your songs to the ‘local’ database. From there the tracks can be dragged over to the iPod/Shuffle easily.
- Sync directories.
- Detect duplicates when adding songs.
- Work offline and synchronize your new playlists / songs with the iPod at a later time.
- Write the updated iTunesDB and added songs to your iPod.
