Picard supports the majority of audio file formats, is capable of using audio fingerprints (PUIDs, AcoustIDs), performing CD lookups and disc ID submissions, and it has excellent Unicode support. Additionally, there are several plugins available that extend Picard's features.
When tagging files, Picard uses an album-oriented approach. This approach allows it to utilize the MusicBrainz data as effectively as possible and correctly tag your music. For more information, see the illustrated quick start guide to tagging.
Picard is named after Captain Jean-Luc Picard from the TV series Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Quod Libet easily scales to libraries of thousands of songs. It also supports most of the features you expect from a modern media player, like Unicode support, multimedia keys, and tag editing.
Ex Falso is a program that uses the same tag editing backend as Quod Libet, but isn't connected to an audio player. If you're perfectly happy with your favorite player and just want something that can handle tagging, Ex Falso is for you.
Ex Falso and Quod Libet have been tested on many GNU/Linux distributions, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and Windows. Anywhere with GTK+ 2.12, Python, and an OSS or ALSA compatible audio device should be able to use it.
