Excellent Music Player. I like its simplicity. It reminds me of what iTunes used to be. Too bad they evolved into what they are today.

I love the application but have one issue. When dragging a list of pre-sorted files onto the playlist (unwanted) Cog auto-sorts these files in alphabetical order :( . Maybe this issue can be fixed by the developer?

FYI to other 10.6 holdouts, the builds above are for 10.7 and up.

Simple. Works. I keep my music arranged in folders and don't care to edit metadata. The left column shows me the list of folders, I double-click on one and it loads everything in that folder to the main playlist and starts playing it, including subfolders. So far it plays everything I've thrown at it. Much easier to use than Clementine.

I'm using Cog since years now and it's my preferred player for mp3 because of its simplicity, with just the essentials, but there is something strange about all those "little nice players" (including Play and Vox): while they play aac (.m4a) apparently correctly, they misunderstand tunes'durations (displaying something like 1:13:24 instead of 04:35). It might be boring if you have to go to a precise location in the song, when checking a converted song, for example. The only app displaying durations correctly (except for iTunes or Quicktime Player, of course) is VLC! P.S.: note than I have only checked on PPC :-)

A nice, light, no nonsense player that works with Last.fm, yet bypasses the bloat (and bugs) of iTunes and Songbird.
