    Hi people, Just a quick question...

    I have a lot of new music on my laptop that i want to take a listen to before i either add to to my itunes or burn it.

    i like the quick view feature for playing them but find it a pain in the ass when i try and do other stuff on my mac while listening to it cause it just stops..

    Is there any other little app that will open fast and play my mp3s?


    Cheers for your help..

    There is also Cog, but they appear to be having Leopard issues at the moment.

    I'll second Cog, just use the .8 beta's... perfectly stable and no issues with Leopard. Very very basic player, but plays music just fine.

    Another Cog user here!

    Say, does anyone know any app that can edit ID3 tags of MP3 files? There are times where I want to clean up tags before importing the MP3s into iTunes.

    VLC's a useful media player to have around.

    It'll do just what you want.

    It can also play pretty much any video file known to the internet, while still acting like a fairly lightweight app.

    Why not add it all to iTunes and let it play, and if a song comes on that you think isn't good enough to be part of your library then delete it.

    Either that or just go through all your songs?

    I use Max for this and it works very well. It's also a very secure ripper and file converter.

    I agree.
    if you plan on adding it to itunes eventually, why not just do it now?
