Clementine is a free and open-source audio player. It is a port of Amarok 1.4 to the Qt 4 framework and the GStreamer multimedia framework. It is available for Unix-like, Windows and macOS operating systems. Clementine is released under the terms of the GPL-3.0-or-later.
Clementine was created due to the transition from version 1.4 to version 2 of Amarok, and the shift of focus connected with it, which was criticized by many users. The first version of Clementine was released in February 2010.
The last stable release of Clementine was in 2016, but development has since resumed on GitHub, with a number of release candidate versions published.
In 2018, a fork of Clementine named Strawberry Music Player was released.
Clementine has the ability to stream audio from services such as Spotify, SoundCloud and Last.fm (which also provides Clementine with album artwork), as well as other platforms. The software also has functionality to display information such as lyrics and statistics regarding the song currently being played, as well as mimicking iTunes functionality by interacting with users’ iPod players
Some additional features supported by Clementine are:
