Best media player for Mac?
Thanks for the warm welcome guys.
I have a G4 Mac mini but need to get a dvi to hdmi cable to connect. I was wondering what the best media player would be? I'm new to mac! I have itunes but most of my music is in flac format. I also have a small collection of 24bit hi res files.
I look forward to receiving the hiface Dave. Thank you.
You may find the G4 a limiting factor. Something like Plex requires an Intel processor.
Hi DanI use Pure Music on a Mac Mini and convert everything to Apple Lossless using DbPowerAmp. Flac is not well supported in the Apple environment - yes some programs handle it - but a few don't. I however find Apple Lossless plays on just about anything. I rip using Exact Audio Copy to Flac then convert to Apple Lossless on my main computer which is a Windows machine. I used to use the ripper in Itunes and on most disks it is exactly the same as Exact Audio Copy - but if it has a error it does not report it and on a few disks when you play it back you can hear some artifacts. The problem with EAC though is it does not know about as many disks. On those few I generally either copy the info from Itunes using the clipboard or make sure I clean my disk and use Itunes to rip it.ThanksBill
