Re: Music organiser and player for mac

All,
thanks so much for your recommendations! As usually, I’m favouring open source, as they have a longer life span than commercial ones. I’ve been using nightingale since 2012 and I only had to give it up because of Catalina. Kodi is around since 2002 so it might be a safe bet.

I’ve got Kodi on my Amazon FireStick – does music cataloging as well as video (although I’ve not really used it). Might be worth a look, interface is quick slick.

!!! A quick search directed me to this tutorial. It’s a start, I’ll have to next see how I can make a custom playlist.

Doesn’t iTunes also do that to get cover art and lyrics and stuff?

Indeed, but it also reads your meta-data, and replaces tracks, to the ones in their library. I have some recordings I would not want replaced. This is the main reason, I was using nightingale!

Re: Music organiser and player for mac

Just in case anybody else may be interested in this, I found Kodi to be restrictive, especially its convoluted way of creating custom playlists. I’m now looking into jellyfin which is the open source alternative to emby.
