Won't rip in Parallels alas

iTunes sucks for Classical music fans. There is no decent way to edit the disk information if you disagree with CDDB.

So I tried WinAmp in Parallels. Alas, when you rip, it only records every odd track. The others all have just 2kb in them.

Parallels knows about this bug and has been "working on it" since April.

Winamp works on Leopard!

You can now use Winamp using Darwine (which is freeware). The latest versions of Darwine, 9.49 and 9.50 work on Leopard (after some testing, Winamp works better using 9.49, as 9.5 seems to have some kind of resource problem).

You can download Darwine by going to the Darwine Installer site here: http://thisismyinter.net/?p=29

If that page doesn't work google Darwine 9.49 and look for a link that has the installer.

Be advised, everything works, even plug-ins, so longs you stay with the classic skin. It doesn't seem to like the modern skins.

No, Winamp will only run natively on Windows but can be run in wine on other platforms.

winamp

Itunes sucks, can't handle a larger amount of mp3 songs, takes 10 mins to create a playlist, than unecpected crash down. the same shit like win media player. that's why i used winamp ever. is to deal even with 100 GB music.
still looking for something equivalent for my macbook

winamp substitute for mac

I've been looking for a substitute for Winamp, the app I most miss on Mac. Hell, I'd have settled for foobar2000... A couple months ago, a great replacement came out: Play (sbooth.org/Play/) (http://sbooth.org/Play/). It appears to be late beta, but it's powerful, user-friendly, and does only what it's supposed to do. Vorbis support, Last.fm, Growl, DSP effects, library...

Play's pretty good; it even has the Winamp feel to it somewhat. (seek backward/forward, etc.)

But I don't like the fact that it's a library-based player. You cannot play a song without having it added to the library. It's the same reason I do not like iTunes all that much.

I'd say the closest equivalent to Winamp for Mac OS X would be Cog.

cogx.org

It has a feature set similar to Play's: supports many formats (MP3, OGG, FLAC, SHN, etc.), Last.fm, Growl, global hotkeys, Apple Remote, etc.

But it uses Winamp's "temporary playlist" concept. Also, it supports video game music formats, tracker formats, cue sheets, and M3U/PLS playlists.

The latest nightly builds (Mac OS 10.5 Leopard only) also added seek backward/forward, a toolbar-only mode (a la Winshade mode), queuing, etc.

cogx.org/development.php

As a long time Mac user, I get fed up with iTunes at times too.

90% of the time I just use mplayer command line to listen to a directory of mp3s, an audio stream, or playlist. You can download the binaries from the ffmpegx site at http://ffmpegx.com/download.html. You need only the "mplayer binaries" package.

To play music in your Music folder, just fire up the Terminal and enter:
code:
mplayer ~/music/*.mp3

You could also just associate all mp3 files with Quicktime Player, too.

Mplayer? It's decent even if you have Windows. I would recommend getting one of its frontends/GUIs too.

i have been a winamp user for many years, and still use the original 'classic' skin for it because it is perfect, simple, and fast - all things i-tunes is not. it's clunky and inefficient, particularly when i had to copy over my 45,000 song library to my mac, and now when i want to put them all in itunes, it has to rewrite all those files into a new, stupid itunes format - which my 400 gig hd didnt even have enough room for!
i miss winamp, and i would pay good money for a mac version. just sayin'.

Can't believe there still isn't a good Winamp replacer for Mac computers.

Im so fed up with iTunes! I miss Winamp for all the great features, as just for the basic functionalities. Iv'e tried almost all the suggestions mentioned in this thread. And there's not even one program close to the comfort and easyness of Winamp.

I think there are a lot of people who are willing to pay for a Winamp version for Mac, cause iTunes just isn't that great. See the opportunitie Winamp guys! As there a more and more people using Mac's...

Please, can we have a Mac version? pleeease...

Correction: I got the iPod to pop up as a device in the Media Library, but it does not show up on the "Send to"-list. Drag and dropping files onto the iPod works, the percentage meter shows up, in fact, the files also show up in the iPod library afterwards. But the files seem to be deleted when ejecting the iPod, since they do not show up on the iPod, or in Winamp after connecting the iPod again.

Also, Winamp using Crossover must use a lot of machine power, since the heat fan accelerates to full speed.

Maybe the company behind winamp ahould start looking for an investor. That way you can bring on a development team dedicated to getting a version out. You would make money by charging a small fee. Would be lucrative solution.

How about VLC?

I'm also one of those who finds iTunes totally useless for my demands and miss winamp a lot. Unfortunately both Play and Cog was unable to play my favorite Internet radio station, AAC+ stream so I have installed VLC (videolan.org) and I'm happy to say that it has been able to play anything I have thrown at it, audio and video.

Not the nicest user interface I know, but a great player never the less.

I'm a former PC-and-Winamp user, and since I converted to Mac OS X about three years ago, I have missed Winamp a lot as well. However, while I am far from some Apple fanboy, I do feel compelled to address some of the perceived "downfalls" of iTunes:

remain: You do not, in fact, have to import songs to your iTunes library to play them in iTunes. Simply disable this feature in Preferences > Advanced > General.

rumi: I'm not sure I understand what you're talking about, honestly...playlist creation in iTunes is actually nearly instantaneous, and it can "handle" as much music as your hard drive can hold.

jarome: CDDB, Shmee-DB. Just ctrl-click on any highlighted song or songs whose info/tags you want to change, and click "Get Info". Then go to (drum roll) the Info tab and fill in whatever you want. Make sure to set a proper ID3 tag format (I recommend 2.3), also by ctrl-clicking.

Also, it's a common misconception that you must use AAC as your song file format in iTunes. You actually have numerous options, and can set this up easily by going to Preferences > Advanced > Importing. Once you do this, you can even convert existing files to your new file type of choice without having to re-rip or re-download them, just by cmd-clicking.

Anyway, it seems like a lot of people's problems with iTunes are problems that anyone might have with any type of program if they aren't willing to utilize its customizability and tinker even just a tiny bit. If you're going to hate on iTunes, at least do it for the right reasons (and there certainly are those!).
