View Full Version : itunes update..ur thoughts

Oct 22, 2003, 04:18 PM
well i dont have an apple but i have decided to try out itunes for windows (i do have an ipod tho).

So far, i think its a great piece of software. I used to use Winamp but itunes has more features like cd-burning, ipod implementation, radio stations and smart playlist.

I guess some better features would be better visualizations insted of the default one. Also, it would be cool if I could add radio webcasts. I found a bunch off live365.com but i can't add them to a playlist or to the radio stations already listed which is annoying. Also, if i could play videos that would be cool, but thats asking too much ;]. What are your thoughts.

btw, does anyone know if you can add internet radio stations into itunes or is this feature not available.

For radio:
Advanced->Open Stream

I think you can even set Live365 to use itunes as the player, but since it probably thinks you're using WinAMP, it may be confused. I also don't recall how a live365 stream was formatted, but it's something like: http://www.live365.com/radio/1234567

For Visualizers:
It's possible, and they exist, although there aren't a lot for some reason. Here's one: http://www.2tothex.com/fractogroovalicious.html I don't know if that will work in Windows iTunes - those things are probably compiled apps, rather than cross-platform scripts.

Still no MilkDrop, however. Perhaps someone should port it.
