The PERFECT music playing app for Windows 8.

  1. #21


    Windows Media Player still can't do gapless playback of FLAC files. I own a fairly expensive DAC so, to me, it's a "PEBCAD" (Problem Exists Between Computer And DAC).

    don't see the need to download anything to just do the samething
    because some people want their music player to do more than just play music. if we just wanted MP3 playback, we could've stuck to the music player in Windows 3.11.

    And I want more with my audio playback, I want it to look pretty and immersive when I leave my music playing when I'm not in the room or doing whatever.

    Windows Media Player does not.

    Zune does, but the problem with Zune was that it took a LOT of system resource to run. Music Info doesn't.

    Yes, it had better look pretty when you aren't in the room looking at it. LOL

    I was just giving you a hard time. When I am listening to music, it's always an app in the background which is minimized. I don't see the point it looking at it. I don't look at my CD Player or amplifier while it's playing music.

    When your posts seem more reasonable and down to earth to me. You and I just seem to value very different things. You seem more into fit and finish, and I'm all about functionality.

    Hi there
    getting back on track -- Foobar 2000 is fine too - but I'm sticking with Winamp -- doesn't matter where the music is stored -- even on a micro sd card in your phone -- or you can sync the music (Flac files) on the phone and play in winamp.

    The whole Folders idea and not having to set up playlists is what I need plus a decent equaliser and FLAC playing. If other applications can do this --then fine -- like pparks1 if I have music when I'm at a computer then the music app is playing in the background -- I don't need pictures / graphic equaliser displays etc etc -- I'm WORKING not playing "Make believe D.J" in a "Virtual Studio.

    (Most of the time I find music when I'm at a computer working rather distracting especially if I'm making a presentation / working on a complex spread sheet or running complex post processing in photoshop-- I'm probably in a minority of ONE here but I like REALLY listening to music in its own right and not having it as "Background Musical wallpaper).

    Cheers

    Yeah, we each have our own music interests. I find foobar requires too much setup, and I personally don't have the interest in setting it up.

    I personally use Media Monkey and before that used Winamp.
