My name is DJ. I recently tested out the 0.5 release of Songbird, and realized how much potential the program has, however it is still incredibly slow. It is my personal belief that making a music player based off of a browser is just too large a bundle to work well together. I do however love the way it is designed, and wish that they had made it without being based off of firefox, because it surely would have rivaled itunes (what I use presently)
That being said, I would love to start a team project to create such a media player that would have all of the great features of songbird and itunes, but without all the added bulk (even itunes has gotten increasingly slow with all the added support for their new devices.)
I'm not a programmer, I am a graphics artist/web developer. If people wish to join the project or know somebody who does, you do not need to be a programmer. we will need writers, graphics artists, web developers, along with the many programmers. If anyone wants to be a part of the project, email me at carbide20 [at] gmail [dot] com
Once I get a good starting crew, we can discuss ideas and begin coding.
