doesnt it do the same in itunes? thats what the playlist is.. its not meant to manage your music, its meant to play them in the order they are there... though i have all my songs in the playlist sorted by title... and i use jtfe to queue for special needs (hit q or alt click)
also... the media library is like itunes.. except instead of playing the music in the medialibrary, it insteads transfers whatever you choose in the media library (i think you can turn it, so it only plays/enqueues the song you click, but i prefer it to load the entire playlist/view i chose)
and how can you not use the medialibrary, its set up sorta like itunes... plus its the way you organize your music (all the cool editing things you want are in there) and unlike itunes, you dont have to add a file to your library to play it(if you just want to play a file and delete it, you can drag it to the playlist, if you did that in itunes, it would auto add it to the library and clutter up your library/views) thats one thing that i love about winamp.. but it would be nice to be able to mass edit from the playlist (though that would probably force feautres from the media library that some winamp users hate)
and yeah, that time thing would be cool... i would no longer have to make special cut files of songs, though i probably still would for playlists that i transfer to my ipod
also.. there is an option for it... "use modern skins" you cant turn it off because you wouldnt be able to use any classic skins, and if you make/get a modern skin that doesnt use it, then that works perfectly...
oh yeah, and i hate the way itunes play thing works.. if i ever want to restart a song i have to scroll to the beginning or double clicking, instead of just hitting play, but if you want it for your keyboard, go into global hotkeys, scroll to "playback: play/pause" and then i think if you hit that playpause button on your keyboard.. it should set it
also.. itunes can create views (right click on the tree thingy and click create smart list)
and they are basically the same thing.. i think the only diff is that the winamp has a few more list options (i dont think itunes lets you choose whats in the comment tag) but itunes is better for mixed cds, because you can say "smart list of 50 minutes" and then it will limit it to the song amount/time you set
also if you used the medialibrary (like itunes forces you to do) you wouldnt have to worry about deleting your songs from the playlist... because they would all be there, plus you would be open to so many new options
though could dro put that in jtfe... have an option "skip this song" and you hit s or something and instead of a number an x appears beside it, and you just hit s again for it to be allowed to play(plus there could be a seperate menu "skipped songs"
dont know if that would work, but it seems possible...
