I have a folder with music that synchronizes songs that I via a cloud service. I was using itunes but it turned boring and monotonous because I needed to scan for new music every time new music was added. Is there a music player that automatically adds music to its playlist as soon as a new song is added to the folder?

Or maybe some feature to scan folder every time the music player is opened? I couldn't find this option in itunes (Win 7).

Thanks

Have a look at Rhythmbox, Clementine, basically anything but iTunes I would think. Also have a look at our FAQ, sorry but product recommendations are off topic, voting to close. –  terdon Jul 6 '13 at 19:40
    
Thanks! Foobar seems to be very much what I am looking for. Sorry I am new at super user, what is wrong with my question, why the -1? thanks –  Eddy XP Jul 6 '13 at 21:02

That is interesting, Although any technology related question will be soon obsolete. –  Eddy XP Jul 6 '13 at 21:47
    
@EddyXP product recommendations are off topic, read the link I gave you in my previous comment. The -1 (not by me) reflects that. –  terdon Jul 6 '13 at 21:53

Foobar2000 does a good job with this. It will actively monitor the folders in your library.

It has a barebones look to it at first, but it's highly customizable and skinnable. You can see what people have done on sites like DeviantArt and customize.org.

Rhythmbox can watch your "library location" for new files.

Thanks but I believe this is only for Linux Distributions, I am looking for Win 7. –  Eddy XP Jul 6 '13 at 20:59
