Quote from: DJ Omnimaga on October 26, 2015, 04:18:22 amMy main issue is getting used to new interfaces and for music I really prefer the old iTunes interface (which shows a list of files like in Windows explorer when they are set as lists. In newer iTunes versions you can emulate that interface by creating a dynamic playlist of all your songs). I hate iTunes for everything else, though, but its old interface is the only reason why I still use it.

Quote from: Hayleia on October 26, 2015, 07:20:03 amI didn't think it was worth mentionning in my first post, but I actually always open all my files from the file browser, so Street, I "can't" use mpd from a GUI, and DJ, I agree about interfaces being annoying but I don't think that the old iTunes one would work for me.
Quote from: Streetwalrus on October 26, 2015, 10:45:10 amOh I see. Well I liked the old itunes as well with the library thingy, but I guess everyone does not. I just find things messy when I have to use a file manager to play music. Library-based players are more flexible too, for example you can easily listen to all the songs by an artist on shuffle with a couple clicks.
