File-Browsing MP3 Player suggestions?!
      #1034562 - 21/02/13 05:18 PM
hey there!

Does anyone know of a MAC (OS 10.6 or later) MP3 player which allows me to browse directly from the folders in my computer? I would play my mp3's directly from my folders but i can't fast forward the previews - and can't do anything else on the computer while listening to the previews. ie. the moment I click on something else the preview stops! It'd be so nice to have a player which didn't ask me to make set-lists but just used the folder structure which i already have…

any suggestions?

many many thanks!!

ps. i've tried ITunes, Winamp and VLC already. Maybe there is a feature in these players which i haven't seen?!

I know you are looking for something to do playlists but you do know you can play the file from the Finder right? If you click on the file itself, it should play from the file - not preview.
