As you can see, MusicPod consumes a lot more memory than the other music players under the spotlight. Of course, some of these music programs are command-line and therefore you’d expect them to be far more frugal. But there are a good number of graphical music players included.
Given that MusicPod offers limited functionality, its memory consumption is disappointing to say the least. It’s almost in the realm of Electron-based software with their bloated memory usage.
