got it - if anyone has problems with M4A metadata just update to the nightly build

does anyone else have this problem? I added all my iTunes folder to Cog and all songs appear on the list, but only MP3s show metadata, AAC songs just show the file name and no title, atist, or anything else like 04 Mentira.m4a. does COG not support AAC metadata or what? I currently use Play instead of Cog because of this, but i'd like to get Cog to work too because it's nice. also, anybody knows if Cog and Play will be merged or something? that'd be cool!

Like a perfected version of Winamp for Mac OSX. I love it. Perfect compliment to iTunes when I need a slim music player to skim through an unzipped folder of music I found online.

Useful when you want to listen to audio files recorded in a format that is not supported by iTunes.

minimalist, simple. great software!

For those who don't like the factory icon, there a nice one here:

for anyone experiencing issues with Cog 0.07, there is a final bug fix release (for both tiger and leopard) which can be downloaded from here; http://cogx.org/unstable_builds/Cog-r717.tbz

If you don't like the way Itunes handles files for you, then Cog is the solution. I love cog - it's simple and it just works.

There's an interesting discussion about audio players for Mac OS X on hydrogenaudio.
