By Debjit on April 5th, 2010 

This article is continued from the previous part where we had told you about 8 add-ons for Songbird Media Player which will improve your Music experience by many folds. In this second part of the article we will tell you about 7 more addons. So here we go:

YABS - YABS stands for Yet Another Black Songbird. This is more of a skin rather than a add-on. Installing this add-on gives a black look to Songbird media player and many more tweaks that work.

Concerts - Using this add-on you can see when your favourite artists in your Songbird library are touring in your city. Concert and ticketing information is powered by Songkick's API.

MediaFlow - This add-on adds a new media view for your library and playlists. This works well with the FocusTrack extension with which the currently shown album will change when the track changes. If you would like the default album art image to look different you may want to take a look at the Vinyl Album Art extension

Fasterbird - This add-on allows you to tweak many network and rendering settings such as simultaneous connections, pipelining, cache, DNS cache, and initial paint delay thus increasing the dynamic speed. A popup blocker for popups initiated by Flash plug-ins is also included.

MTP device support - With this add-on, users will be able to transfer media files to MTP devices, delete and update files, create and manage playlists and manage multiple MTP devices at once. This add-on requires Windows XP SP2 and above with Windows Media Player 11 installed.

SHOUTcast Radio - This add-on provides a Songbird-native interface for browsing and playback of SHOUTcast Internet Radio streams. You can bookmark / favourite stations, filter / search, and view them by genre.

Hype Machine Site - This extension creates a web playlist based on the RSS playlist file on each Hype Machine page. It also adds the Hype Machine site as a search option.
