If anyone would like help subscribing to the TR podcast on Foobar2k let me know. It took a little looking around. Either way EVERYONE should look around and subscribe and listen to the podcast. They're really good stuff.

There are components needing to be added to the new version and a podcast manager that isn't the easiest to navigate. Wasn't trying to be smug, Skyring. Just wanted to help some people convert their use from that bloated POS itunes media player to something that works for everything you want it to with a little tweak here and there called foobar2000.

Now c'mon Jack...every good geek knows that having iTunes installed is de riguer if you are into benchracing..er marking.
Having the fastest opening time for iTunes on Windows has almost reached cult status. :wink:

Some of us like iTunes because we don't have to dick around trying to figure out how to make something like foobar work :wink:

The newest package is really quite easy. just like any other install and you're virtually ready to go after adding your music folder. it's really simple and has a whole lot more usability than a lot of other music players. Ver. 1.0 makes it pretty easy to get going too. This is one of the default configs that ANYONE can configure in foobar just by clicking on some options in a window that opens when you open the program for the first time.Image

I never claimed iTunes was all that terrible by any means(just bloated POS). Now, if you want an alternative way to go about listening to music and other media on the computer, give foobar a try. Didn't mean to get under anyone's skin.
