I seek a music player which will let me rate my music and later play highly rated ones. I am aware that rhythmbox can do this, but seek alternatives with better UI.

Other features sought:

  • Ability to add particular folder to a playlist with ease.
  • saving playlists to file
  • browsing audio collection by artist, album etc..

"better UI" is a subjective matter that you'll ultimately have to decide for yourself, but I would suggest Amarok which I believe does all of the things you are looking for.

In fact Amarok has its own automatic track scoring system, which can also be manually changed, whilst still offering the more traditional stars based rating system.

So install it and give it a go... you'll find all the details in the Amarok Manual and if you need a hand there's always the Amarok Forum.

Hope that helps! :-)
