    Hi all,
    Is it me, or does Musicmatch just NOT show the track times for the tracks in the playlist? How could they possibly leave this out???? Is there a setting I'm not seeing?

    It's not there. Even on their web site it's not shown. Who the hell writes an MP3 player with no track times in the playlist?

    I hate to admit this in public but the new Windows Media Player 9 is becoming my mp3 player of choice. It's got a few quirks but overall I'm starting to like it better than WinAmp & MusicMatch -especially for playlists.

    camp -

    i still can't figure out how the playlist thing works for windows media. everytime i play a file, it seems to add another playlist? also, how the heck do i get my entire catalog into the dang thing?

    i'll probably stick with winamp (talk about simple) but i'm still curious...

    Tedd,

    It should have asked you where your files are stored when you first ran it. However, you can still do it. From the "Tools" menu select "Search for media files". It can also automatically level the volume for all your files (though if you have a large collection you'll want to do this overnight).

    Creating a playlist is pretty easy once you find it. (I did have to look for it at first)
    On the Windows Media Player taskbar, click on "Media Library". Assuming you've already told it where you files are located they'll all appear in the main window. There will be a button at the top left called "Playlists". Click that and select "New Playlist". You can also create your own auto-playlists which you can customize...you can do cool stuff like "play all four-star rated songs that I haven't played in the past 60 days".

    Any idea when WMP9 will go final? I don't want to install a beta on my system.

    Mike,

    I don't know but I've had no problems with the beta.
