    Why is every MP3 player missing this???

    Hi Software Developers,

    I'm using 4am Music console because it uses a great option that you can see the covers of the albums in you libary.



    Why does none of the other players have that, because 4am Music console is a irritating piece of software.

    4am has an irri option when you click a number it puts the number in a que list, but I wanna play it when i press it, in the settings there is an option that when you click a number it plays. Yaaa, funny guys at 4am, it presses the play button so when you press a number from the songlist it just puts the player on Pause, and when yopu press again the number that was playing will play again. I just don't understand this option.

    I wanna use something else like Frodo Player, but I wanne see my albums.

    Frodoplayer shows album covers. (As of 1.0.9 that I know of.) Looks like 4AM has a database of covers or something. Normally they are embedded in the MP3 files.

    What do you find irratating about 4am music? I had a couple nit pics about it at first, but after making my own skin with larger buttons and getting rid of useless options (for me) its my favorite program for mp3 playback in my car. I made the "now playing" album cover a large minimize button. So I can minimize and drop to myHTPC (which is my shell) and launch GPS or anything else I need while playing music.

    Its all about personal preference though But I think more people should give it a try. Album covers are stored in album folders.
