Okay so, I've gone through a lot of music players but none really fit the mold I'm looking for. Wondering if you geniuses here have any ideas?

NECESSITIES:
Must be able to handle large library with little hitches --> ~7500 songs and growing
Direct tag editing capability, library directory, add files to library directory, organize files/library automatically
SUPPORT FOR ASIAN CHARACTERS/UNICODE
LIGHTWEIGHT
NOT MPD BASED.
-- that's it!

iPod sync support would be nice. Currently using gtkpod, but it runs very slowly with the number of songs I have, but it's an improvement over Banshee which doesn't write over Asian characters properly. Amarok doesn't work.. songs don't play back to me. Songbird is way too heavy for my system.

Help? :'(

PS Linux noob.

Hi,

Can you tell us what Linux distribution you are running so that we know what type of specs we are working with. That will really help us.

Cheers!

I don't have an iPod, so I can't quickly recommend any one program. However, this link might interest you: http://www.simplehelp.net/2007/07/08/10-al...ging-your-ipod/

EDIT: fixed grammar/spelling

I use rhythmbox with the good, bad, and ugly plugins. My library is 20,233 songs and had about 100 Podcasts and videos (i've since deleted the podcasts and videos). Handled all that with minimal strain. Handled Japanese characters fairly well (not that i could read them). At one time my Library spanned 3 Hard Drives. The only things it didn't do was rip/burn CD's and handle Coverart (that I ever figured out how to use).
