skiTunes is a fast, extensible, open-source alternative to iTunes written in Cocoa and featuring Apple QuickTime and Apple WebKit. It may also use VLC, MPlayer, LAME, and cdrecord. It's target platform is Mac OS X 10.3 and later, however it may run on Mac OS X 10.2 as well.

It differs from Apple's offering in that it is written in Cocoa and uses native widgets, as well as supporting formats iTunes doesn't, such as OGG and WMA. Using native widgets will allow it to automatically match the rest of the OS when a theme is applied, unlike iTunes, which requires hacking in order to make it match. It will also offer a skinnable "mini-mode".
