Hi, I'm running 10.5 on an upgraded G4 DA. For a variety of reasons (Ogg Vorbis support, non-iPod music player, etc.), I'd like to find a music player program to use instead of iTunes, with roughly that feature set (wma support, internet radio support, data base, etc.)

Songbird requires Intel; Amarok is still in beta. Atunes is only available as a tarball (although it runs on my PC-BSD system). Vox won't play wma's. Media Monkey is Windows only.

Has anyone else found something akin to Amarok that runs on PPC? Thanks in advance.

How about VLC Media Player? It's not really meant for media management, but it should play those formats.

VideoLAN - VLC media player for Mac OS X

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

As for your first issue, why not just add Ogg support to iTunes?

As for the second, KILL THE HERETIC!! YOU MUST BE ASSIMILATED!!!

All kidding aside, maybe there's SOMETHING out there that does what you're looking for (hasn't Winamp threatened like 20 times to make a Mac player?), but you're kind of up against a wall; any newer and supported projects like that are increasing going to be Intel only.

Pretty sure you can run Cog too, which will play everything and is quite decent too.
