I've been using Musicmatch Jukebox for quite some time, but have been
frustrated by it...I'm not sure why, it just seems to not feel right.
So, the last few days I've been using iTunes. Not much better...I think
a step backwards.
Any recommendations? I'll be nearing the 50 gig range when my CD
collection is fully ripped.
I rather like WinAmp 5's "Media Library". I currently have no problem
going through my 6906 MP3s at a whim, with easy searches based upon
artist, album, and track name at the same time.
I tried iTunes, and I wasn't impressed. It seems to like eating up lots
of screen real estate, and just felt counter-intuitive.
If you can bring yourself to using it, some like using Windows Media Player.
If you got really creative, you could use a Linux computer running mpd
(Music Player Daemon, http://www.musicpd.org /), which uses what Windows
people might call a "network service" to playback MP3s, so you could
easily control MP3 playback anywhere in the house from a web browser.
Further implementation of coolness with mpd is left as an excersise to
I however record all my MP3s to vinyl LP, and use those wherever I go,
especially when out for a jog or in the car. Because Analog Is Better(TM).
