    Itunes

    What front end is most like Itunes?
    The features i want in Rank-Order are:

    1. The ability to search, when i start typing, in the search feild it narrows down to songs that match what i have typed
    2. Larger type than itunes
    3. Be able to see all songs in a folder including subfolders in one screen, what I mean is that if i have a folder: 'c:\Music' and in it there are 10 songs and 10 folders, some front ends only show the 10 songs, i want to be able to see the 10 songs and all of the songs in the 10 folders
    4. The ability to "rate" songs
    5. A program that doesn't take forever just b/c i have 22000 songs/100gb
    6. i want to make new playlists, and smart playlists


    Should i just use itunes?

    Oh yeah i need a slider to so that i can quickly move to a letter in the alphabet, i have been playing with mediacar and it would take me 15 minutes to scroll to the n's for nirvana

    If you encode all your songs in FLAC or MA, then you're gonna take up a lot more space than with mp3s
