"Scanning a music collection of about 700 Ogg Vorbis
files took around 3 minutes and a half, while adding all those
tracks to the playlist took about 3 minutes too on my Core 2 Duo
1.8 GHz and 1 GB DDRAM2.
"Exaile can become a little slow when there are several thousand
music files in the playlist, especially when adding and sorting by
custom columns. The playlist can be sorted by meta tags and other
rules, like title, album, year, genre, rating, bitrate, location,
playcount etc. Columns can be shown or hidden. You can shuffle or
the tracks and repeat the playlist endlessly. The collection
sidebar on the left can also be sorted by several rules, including
Artist - Year - Album. See the screenshots below."
