Clementine 1.0 and its global search

One of the important sites in my country on GNU / Linux is that of a university (UCi, University of Computer Science). It is a real shame that this site can only be viewed from IPs in Cuba, as it has a lot to contribute to the web as such.

This time I bring you an article about Clementine 1.0 and specifically, its new global search function.

Here I leave them ...:

On December 27th Clementine's team gave us the long-awaited version 1.0 of this excellent multiplatform audio player. Among the novelties stand out the new global search engine, as well as integration with two of the most fashionable services to access music in the cloud, Spotify and Grooveshark. Support for working with audio CDs has also been improved, and audio encoding options between formats have been improved. But the most visible change is undoubtedly the global search engine.

Another search engine? why if with the two that he had was too much. Well, this is what the new one looks like:

that even offers us search suggestions "Look for whatever, for example Metallica".  

This global search engine integrates the results of searches in our music collection with the results of Internet music searches, useful if we use any of the Internet services that are enabled by default.

The difference is that it not only searches our music collection, but simultaneously searches the services we use on the Internet, and the other difference is in the way of returning the results, a list of all the matches appears, within which we can select what we are looking for, and of each element in which we have the focus it shows us a kind of pop-up with a description, if it is a disk, for example, we will see what songs are in that album and some keyboard shortcuts that we can use, this image will tell you more:

Previously, the collection search engine was more than enough, but this form of search is also useful, perhaps instead of adding another search engine, a small button would have been enough to modify the behavior of the collection search engine.

Those of Apple would have left only one or perhaps fewer search engines.

I think it is a bit confusing for some users to have 3 different search engines in the main interface of the application, but it is appreciated that the Clementine guys keep looking for new variants to distinguish their player from the rest.

    Huu I had loved this player after I made the system and did not reinstall it, the only weak point, it seemed to me, is that you cannot change the size of the letter panel, for example in Amarok I enlarge the font and let it run to see them better and do a kind of karaoke with friends 😀

    In windows it never worked for me, in Linux it is the best.

      If an application works on Linux and the same application doesn't work on Windows ... then it's obvious whose fault it is, right? LOL!!

    I hope they make one that says this:

    Look for whatever, for example Kalmah

    This is how you become and leave the regayton

    Clementine is my favorite player, closely followed by audacious, but since this one is gtk and I use Chakra it kind of doesn't fit ...
