I'm looking to demo some different CD playing programs. What I'm looking for is something very close to the default CD player program that comes with Windows 2000. I use this (along with Cool Edit Pro) to create short clips of songs for customers to demo on our website (this is a work thing). I just upgraded to Cool Edit Pro version 2 and one thing they left out of the new version was CD player controls. Because of this I have to run a CD player program at the same time as Cool Edit so I can start and stop the CD. I've been using the Windows CD player in compact mode (it has to be small and always on top to not interfer with the Cool Edit controls). The only problem I have with the compact mode of the Windows player is that there are no fast forward and rewind controls in this mode. You have to go to full mode to get these. I need this so I can skip to the portion of the track that I need to record. Does anyone know of a program (free or not) that has a compact mode that features FF/RW buttons as well as an always on top mode? Below is a capture of the space I have to have the CD player in to not cover up other controls..... Notice the CD player at the bottom left of the screen... I would just start downloading stuff from download.com or zdnet.com, but I've screwed my PC up more than once by randomly installing freeware like that over and over again. Any suggestions?
