Exaile plugin...

Asked by Andrew Starr-Bochicchio

Considering that Exaile is the default Xubuntu music player, it would be nice to have an Ubuntu One Music Store plugin for Exaile.

From the Ubuntu One Music Store FAQ:

Q: What desktop application will include the Ubuntu One Music Store?
The standard Ubuntu music player, Rhythmbox, will be used for the music store. We know that people still want choice in their music player application so The Ubuntu One Music Store was developed as a plug-in that can be re-used in some other music applications. We have received approval from the music labels for the Ubuntu One Music Store to be embedded within Banshee, Amarok, and a few other applications. Please contact the Ubuntu One Music Store team for information about this process and implementation support.


Is Exaile an approved applications?

Hi Andrew,

We don't currently have plans to support Exaile ourselves but we'd love to work with you or anyone else who is interested in taking the open source music store client and creating an Exaile plugin. We are working with Jo Shields as he does similar work to create an Ubuntu One Music Store plugin for Banshee, so it's definitely doable.

Thank you,
