My Mac at work has 2GB of RAM total, and I'm constantly using enough middleweight programs simultaneously that I wind up in Rainbow Circle Hell.
I've been using Songbird, but it frequently runs into "Not Responding" (and is usually the first thing to go among all programs when things begin to freeze up).
I'd like to use a different player.
This is all I want out of my music player:
- Mac OSX freeware.
- It has a file browser.
- It can play all music in a folder if told to play all music in that folder.
- It has a randomize function.
- It has an incredibly low system footprint. It will run when everything else on the system is freaking out.
- It needs to read MP3, m4a, FLAC and OGG files. This is less mission-critical.
I do not need to see album art. I don't need any "features" other than "play all the music in this folder" followed by it playing all the music in the folder.
Suggestions, folks? I've searched the forum, but other than this thread (which made it seem like Cog might be a contender) this seems like kind of unexplored territory.
EDIT: Oho! This thread also seems good. From two years ago, though -- any newer reccs?
