    Looking for a good alternative to iTunes 12 or a way to make iTunes 12 useable....

    Currently I have about 1TB of music, which has rendered my iTunes library pretty unusable since I updated from iTunes 10 to 11 back in 2013(?)
    iTunes 12 is just more of the same.

    Finally getting fed-up of not accessing my library because of the immense lag time in searches and playback (average 3-5 second delay in every command)
    It's not like this if I have a small library on another computer.

    I have tried turning off features in iTunes which connect to the internet, but none seem to have helped.

    Also, a pain in iTunes 11/12 is that I can't double-click a playlist and open in a new window. Is this possible?

    I use iTunes to archive songs, create playlists for radio broadcasts and connect with RadioLogik software for Automation playback while on-air.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    This is what I get for trying to post from a small device.
    Sorry.

    I have been researching and asking for solutions about this for months. I've yet to find anything helpful.

    A very useful feature that was taken away.

    You have all your smart playlists dumbed down?
    They can be real time-eaters.

    iTunes 11 went single window, which is a big part of the reason I've stuck to 10.

    What about plex, does playlists also? Or VLC for playing of songs?

    Elmedia Player might be worth taking a look at. It does a lot more than music, but it's probably worth taking a look at. They offer a free and a pro version.
