Version 1.2 is, without a doubt, the best CD and MP3 player I have ever used. Makes you see just how bloated iTunes is. The visuals and such are nice with iTunes but if you just want to stick a CD in and listen to it qtplay is about as efficient as it gets. The new features in version 1.3 can only make qtplay better.

I just love qtplay. But it would be nice to have a quit option, rather than using kill to stop the process.

A DIY quit-option is "fairly easy" to make with standard *nix tools...

#! /bin/sh
kill `ps -acex | grep qtplay | grep -v grep | awk '{print $1}'`

if you copy these two phrases into a textfile and save it as, say, "qtquit", and you perform:

chmod 700 qtquit

on it to make it executable, you'd have a quit-command.
Leave it in your home-directory and you'd have to type "./qtquit" in order to quit, or even "~/qtquit" if you're in another dir; or you move it to a location where Terminal searches for commands (echo $PATH)
