Hi, i really want a mac, but i dont want to use itunes for music. In windows i use windows media player. Is it possible to use quicktime for example instead of itunes on a mac? Can i set quicktime to be the defauld program for music? This confuses me.
#2
isn't quicktime an apple thing as well?
It's over simplified, So what!

Pretty sure it is.

Alternatively, you could try this neato program called Songbird, which should work on both OS

I'm on a mac and I use spotify, even for the stuff I'm not streaming.
Sometimes I accidentally hit the play button on my keyboard and itunes starts and I remember it still exists.

Can this be customized, or is it pretty much like itunes is always the default music app? I use spotify for streaming, but i make alot of my own music. The thing i dont like about itunes is that i'm only viewing the shortcuts to the files, and not the files themself. This gets annoying when you often replace files with updated versions etc. Then i think its best to just view the file.

if you still ever used FLAC you're the one that's, ahem, 'so edge'

ya maybe if you actively seek out flac, but sometimes it's the only thing available

I mean unless you actually buy music

Will you plebs calm down, he just doesn't want to use iTunes. He didn't say anything about Apple and the phrase 'I really want a mac' seems to suggest he doesn't have anything against it.

iTunes for OSX is just infinitely better than any version ever released for Windows. I think you'll be surprised when you start using it on your macbook.
Listen. I'm sorry.

You can just press option+click on an audio file (or the right click if you have one :P), choose "get info", and then set a default application to open that kind of audio files.

Or you can download fluke and have flac on itunes, it does work a lot better on mac.

Ecoute is supposed to be good though I have never tried it myself. And I will agree with somebody further up that iTunes works a lot better on a Mac than on a PC.

It's the software part of Apple that distinguishes it from Windows. If he bitches about the main programs of apple, he will be in for a shock when he realizes no good program runs on apple anyway.

Because it's a lossy format, unlike MP3 and M4A

FLAC is the format all the tunes I buy come in. Perfectly fine format

using flac just means you're trying really hard to be edgy and cool and not use mp3 or itunes or any of that other "pleb" shit

****ing edgy loser JUST USE APPLE
