Just curious- how are you doing this?
I gather you're not familiar with the Squeezebox and the Slimserver software that feeds it program material. The process is very simple. Let's say you put together a collection of jazz from a variety of different albums. You can save this or any other collection of songs as a playlist. The process is very similar to making playlists in Windows Media Player or ITunes. That playlist can be recalled anytime you'd like to listen to that group of songs again.
I am a little familiar with SS/SB. I was simply curious to know if it was common knowledge among new adopters of a Squeezebox that using iTunes as file/playlist manager is much (MUCH) more: versatile, efficient, user-friendly, aesthetically-pleasing than doing this in SS.
In short, I have found iTunes to be a beautiful piece of software. In fact, it is so much better than anything I have ever experienced from microsoft (SS, of course, is from SlimDevices) that I am now seriously considering switching from a PC to a Mac when I replace my computer in the next couple of months.
agree on all points. my wife and i looked into the apple laptops when we bought our last laptop in december of 2005. still a bit to pricey for what we use our laptop for ( web surfing, email ), so we went with M$FT. i am hopeful that on the next one we will be able to buy a MAC.
yep, that is pretty much it. i do use itunes, so i set my playlists up there and then setup slimserver to use itunes, which then means i have my playlists to use.
