Clementine Gets Grooveshark and Spotify Support and Transcoding

Amarok based, cross-platform and open source music player Clementine now stands at version 1.0. The player received a significant number of new features as it traversed from version 0.7 to just beyond the decimal point. The most notable ones among these changes is support for several online music streaming services including two very popular ones, namely Spotify and Grooveshark. Additionally, Clementine can now transcode music to a number of different formats including the lossless FLAC format.

The latest version of Clementine has added not two, but actually 4 new streaming services - and Digitally Imported, aside from Spotify and Grooveshark. The player already supports, Icecast, Jamendo, SomaFM and Magnature. You can listen to any of these services through Clementine. However, you need a Spotify Premium and Grooveshark Anywhere account for this.


Most of the Grooveshark features can be accessed from within Clementine - you can add songs to your favorites, create new playlists, add songs to a Grooveshark playlist or get a song URL for sharing. But listening to Grooveshark radio station is not yet available.

The player interface has undergone some minor changes – there is a global search feature that lets you search for music in library, radio streams, Spotify and Grooveshark, all at once. The Preferences section has also undergone a reorganization.

Another new feature is transcoding. Clementine can now convert music to MP3, OGG Vorbis, FLAC, AAC, WMA and Speex before you transfer them to your portable device.

Clementine version 1.0 is available for Windows, Linux and OS X platform.
