Nightingale MP3 + Browser

Does anyone know if Nightingale is open-source? I don't know how to tell, but I read it's a heavily modified Firefox clone. But I really love that app! MP3 and browser collide.

Songbird Fork

It's a fork of Songbird, which we make portable here: https://portableapps.com/apps/music_video/songbird_portable

It's also open source and will be portablized in the future.

Oh cool!

Oh, I didn't notice they had the same base. Cool.

...I just downloaded it and their homepage is down. Is that weird? And they had a bunch of plugins too, but they're inaccessible now that the site's down. Huh. I tried looking up the original version, and that's gone altogether except for illegal sites that modify everything (and infect my computer every time I even look at the page Blum ). Did the guy who made it shut down the site from lack of funding or something? I'm not saying we should drop it, but... what happened?

Folded

The company folded and their website is offline. Our portable package is completely clean, as always. Don't download software from random websites.

On that note, I'll probably remove the links to their homepage and put up the last know good download of the desktop software for folks looking for it.

Fix Songbird?

I'm just curious. I'm no coding expert, but I was wondering if since you can update the links, you could tweak it so it can run Nightingale plugins too?

...or were you saying you'd fix links to their site on the PA.com page?

Why would you run nightingale

Why would you run nightingale addons in songbird? Just switch to nightingale.

-------------
Anyway, does anyone have news about nightingale portable? Songbirds has a few bugs that are fixed in songbird, but i can't take nightingale with me to school Wink

Portable Nightingale would be great

Hello, i would also love a portable version of Nightingale - where you don't have to re-load library and change settings on each start. Thanks!
