    Ney MR with the sucess of my other thread I'd thought i 'd ask a question. I am looking for a program similar to winamp but for mac. More like the original one all i need it to do is play streaming audio and mp3's. I hate itunes and only use it because of the iPod. So if anyone can direct me to a media player like Winamp i would appreciate it

    ToolPlayer is still in it's infancy but is shaping up to be a nice audio player.

    Quicktime? Pretty basic, but gets the job done...

    Can't say that I know of any player out there similar to Winamp for the Mac, I use iTUNES for just about all my audio, no problems at all!!

    I use QuickTime, but VLC and RealPlayer will do it too. I'm sure there are more. Try VersionTracker and MacUpdate.

    I don't know why I do not like it, its just personal preference. I do not like MP3 Players that are that powerful I just want one that uses minimum resources but is simple and sleek

    Other Mac MP3 players . . .

    This is something that I've been wondering as well. I like iTunes, but I was wondering if there was a program that would play MP3s and also sync other MP3 players, besides the iPod, to the library.

    Right now, you should check out Audion, by Panic software ( It was developed at the same time as SoundJam, which would become iTunes. It's a great player, streamer, syncer. However, because of the dominance of iTunes, since it was adopted by Apple, Panic ceased further development of Audion. However, it still works great and a lot of the features on it are only now being implmented on iTunes. It's a simple and small interface, and well worth the look.

    You can still download it from the Panic webiste, and they give you a free registration key so that you can still use it.

    Here's the address:

    Hope that helps.
