Perhaps the most useful Songbird addon ever: The Exorcist

October 3rd, 2009 4 comments

Mad props (to use some ‘hip’ language) to the developers of The Exorcist, a Media View plugin for Songbird that does two things, and does them very well:

  • Finds and removes duplicate tracks from a Songbird library.
  • Finds and removes ‘ghost’ tracks (files no longer present on the filesystem) from a Songbird library.

These two issues are the most frequent contributors to “iTunes library rot” on my Mac – try as I might, somehow my library always gets desynchronized from the actual filesystem and it’s just easier to rebuild it every few months. The Exorcist looks like it’ll help me avoid this problem!




I am currently running various *BSD variants for this Experiment.
I currently run a mix of Windows, OS X and Linux systems for both work and personal use.
For Linux, I prefer Ubuntu LTS releases without Unity and still keep Windows 7 around for gaming.
