  • Songbird is developed by a band of experienced, dedicated software developers and designers called the Pioneers of the Inevitable, and it's mission is to incubate Songbird, the first Web player, to catalyze and champion a diverse, open Media Web.Songbird aims to unite a web browser, a media jukebox and an online media player into a skinnable, extensible, open-source application.
  • Songbird is a discontinued music player originally released in early 2006 with the stated mission "to incubate Songbird, the first Web player, to catalyze and champion a diverse, open Media Web". Songbird utilizes the cross-platform frameworks Mozilla XULRunner and GStreamer media framework. Songbird currently runs on Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS X. In 2012, an Android version and an iOS version was released. Songbird at one point also supported Solaris and Linux, but this support was dropped. As a result, users have forked Songbird and created a Windows, Mac, and Linux compatible derivative under the name Nightingale. Songbird announced on June 14th 2013 that it would stop all operations and shut down by June 28th of that year. The company was unable to fund further business operations and as a result all operations and associated services have been discontinued.
