What does Tomahawk provide that our existing players don't?

I have never used it, but from what I understand it can stream from a bunch of online services (mainly through plugins). YouTube and SoundCloud, for example, would be the most useful in my opinion.

I'd like to see this too.

It looks fancy and allows you to stream from various services while keeping the music library organised.

This software requires a large number of Qt4 libraries, which aren't currently provided by Solus. So it's gonna be a while, if ever.

Either the Qt4 dependencies will need to be provided, or the upstream will need to port to Qt5.

I would recommend moving this to either low priority or wishlist.

@SFaulken Yeah, that's true. The 0.9.0 release will finally move to Qt5 though.

I think it's probably better to wait instead of rushing out Qt4 version, so it would be a good option to just move it to "Awaiting Package Upgrades"

Following this.... Tomahawk is my go to on every platform.

Tomahawk pretty much ceased development. Though, the git version runs with Qt 5.7+, not sure why they never pushed out a release.
