I like the clean and minimalist approach of the native media-player, though there are several things the current version lacks in order to be decently usable with music archives. If I overlooked something, please correct me.

1. As it currently looks, the native media-player application only supports "Shuffle All" for a list of files. Can you please add a repeat option? Otherwise playing stops after all songs have been played. (edit: answered)

2. Would you also please consider extending the "Add to play queue" and "Add to playlist" options for whole albums as well as for artists? Right now it's only available for single songs, which can be a pain for compiling larger playlists (of e.g. newly discovered albums or artists). (edit: duplicate)

3.It seems the play queue is currently only visible in the lower part of the display, where the actual control buttons are located. Please create another view that's showing the queue in a way where it can easily be modified (delete one or more, add at position, reorder/move, select to play).

There's pull-up menu: while playing music, pull up control buttons area. There will be "Repeat all" and "Shuffle" options. And "+" button that probably allows to add currently playing songs to playlist (never used, so just "probably").

Thanks for the hint. That would make (1.) kind of obsolete. I still would appreciate it quite a bit if the players developers took (2.) and (3.) into account.

Would be nice to see, if a song already belongs to any playlist. Like the favourites in meego/N9.

I've strike out the two points not relevant (1. answered and 2. duplicate), I hope you don't mind. It will be easier to vote and track solution that way.

Also if single song repeat feature is added, it would be great too
