If a music manager can't even do that then it's use is forfeit. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, but it should be working, it's simply not.
As for functionality/preference options? Fantastic. I wish other media players had this level of control and customization, but as for the look of the player and it's current usefulness to me (zero) I'm not gonna stick with it.
Okay, so I realized that I was trying to insert the C drive music library which has no music in it. I needed to use my E drive..so now..it's attempting to insert my music, but the program is having a heart attack trying to do so.
Will re-examine the program and add details later.
All right, so I've gotten my music in the player after several minutes and it's playing well.
I had an issue with it at the beginning because apparently some of my music isn't tagged according to this program even though it's tagged fine in other players.
The skinning is absolutely easy. It already comes installed with several color variations which I find fantastic. You don't need crazy skinning most of the time and just a simple color change is more than enough for many people. Hands down this is the easiest skin for that straight out of the box.
However, if you really want to change the look of it, I'm not sure this program does that.
Resources wise, it uses about 20,000-30,000kb less than MediaMonkey which is fascinating.
It has a very simple WASAPI/ASIO/DIRECT-SOUND set up.
Built in CD-Ripping software. I think it's a good player.
I'm just not sure it's going to take over as my main player. I do like MediaMonkey..Edited by Simca - 9/23/12 at 2:37pm
