Simple MP3 Players – We All Need It.

This is a catch up from a few posts ago – Simple MP3 Player.  After I shared the link on Facebook I got a few recommendations of Simple MP3 Players and here are the links:

* MacAmp Lite X – http://macamplite.com/

* Mint Audio 1.5 – http://www.tucows.com/preview/203998/Mint-Audio

* Audion (+ other apps) – http://download.panic.com/

Thanks for all the recommendations guys.

Simple MP3 Players

I have been looking for an application like this one that I’m about to share for a long time now.  It’s very straight forward so do not expect anything other than its ability to play music.  In this instance, the one benefit is that it plays music with style.

* Retro Player 1.7 –  (Free) – PowerPC friendly 10.3 or later.  It’s a simple music player that looks like a retro LP player, complete with on/off button and speed adjustor(33/45).  You also can “fast forward” into a specific part of the album by moving the arm and placing at your desired location.  You can also choose the amount of record noise you want to hear, and the program will insert the “snaps and pops” that you’d expect from an LP.

I have my conventional Vinyl Player and I’m always on the look out for adding classic Vinyls to my collection… but this app is awesome.  I’m always playing random MP3s with it.  The only thing I wish there was a way to open more than a just a single album. http://www.studio-kura.com/  Download here: https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/16405/retroplayer

Talking about Players, it’s your lucky day… I have one more.

* Cabrio 1.1 (Free) – PowerPC friendly 8.1 or later.  Yes you guys read that right Mac OS 8.1!?  This is a simple and cool MP3 player that is always good to have to play something that is not in your iTunes or library files. http://cabrio-os.en.softonic.com/mac

iConvertX Audio/Video PowerPC

It’s always important to have access to a good application that easily converts your video and audio.  iConvertX not only completes the conversion quickly, but anyone can figure how how to work it.  It’s as easy as drag and drop…so even your grandmother could figure out how to work it!

iConvertX 4.0.1 (Shareware $3.75) (First 5 times are free to try) http://joris-vervuurt.com/page4/page4.php  – PowerPC friendly, runs on 10.5 / 10.4 / 10.3 – Leopard / Tiger / Panther.

P.S.:  It seems Joris Vervuurt also developed iTubex, an application that allows you to download videos from Youtube.  As far as I can see, version 8.0 will work on PowerPC running 10.5, but unfortunately I didn’t find a safe source to download the application, to do my tests.  If you guys would like to share the results or links, please feel free to drop us a line to let us know how it worked for you!

List of format that will convert:

.mp4 / .flv / .3gp / .pct / .m4v / .avi / .dv / .mov / .flc / .qtl / .wav / .aiff / .au / .moov / .mp3 / .swa / .m1a / .mp2 / .mpa / .mpeg / .mpg / .m1s / .mpm / .divx / .mkv / .gvi / .vp6 / .vfw

 

Reggie Asworth’s Applications (AppDelete/VidConvert)

This post is supposed to be just about AppDelete, but when browsing the web, I noted that the developer also has another conversion app that works on the PowerPC so this became a double post!

AppDelete is shareware but it definitely does the job! If you are looking for a very easy to use “drag and drop” uninstaller that also allows you to browse your application, screensaver, widgets, as you uninstall, then I think this is a great option for you.  It properly uninstalls the applications without leaving any files behind. (Trial version will give you 5 uses)

AppDelete 3.2.8 ($7.99) PowerPC – 10.5 Leopard – http://www.reggieashworth.com/appdelete

AppDelete 2.2.4 ($5.00) PowerPC – 10.3/10.4 Panther/Tiger – http://www.reggieashworth.com/appdelete

VidConvert also follows the same layout, it’s very easy to use and the best feature is the “drag and drop”.  It will convert any type of video into one of the many popular formats of today. (Supported output – iPhone, iPad, iPod, Retina, Apple TV, QuickTime, .mp4, .avi, DivX, Xvid, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, DVD (.vob), Windows Media, Flash, Matroska (.mkv), Theora (.ogg), .m4a, .mp3, .aiff, .wav, .wma, .ac3) (Trial version will convert only 3 minutes sample videos.

* VidConvert 1.4.1 ($7.99) – PowerPC 10.5 Leopard – http://www.reggieashworth.com/vidconvert

MacSome: Audio Recorder / iTunes Converter

One of our latest post was about tunelyrics and I thought this application would be a good choice to mention as another option for iTunes lovers.

Macsome iTunes Music Converter 1.5.6  (The right version for PowerPC is 1.3.1 and can be download here http://download.cnet.com/Macsome-iTunes-Converter/3000-18549_4-11126093.html )(Demo – $39.95) converts any M4a to MP3, and even works with DRM, by converting protected music and various audio files into unprotected MP3, etc.

http://macsome.com/itunes-converter-mac/index.html 

One more application from MacSome that works very well on PowerPC is the Macsome Audio Recorder 1.1.0 (Shareware – $29.95) 10.4 / 10.5 (Tiger / Leopard). It’s a very powerful audio recorder that works with applications like iTunes, Skype or DVD Player.  It also records from microphones, etc.  It’s a very helpful application to have installed on your Mac.  http://www.macsome.com/audio-recorder-mac/index.html

Audio Player For Mac PowerPC

When we talk about players for Mac the first one that comes to mind is definitely iTunes.  iTunes is a great app but sometimes you don’t want to sync your music and are only looking for a fast and easy listen.  iTunes 10.2.2 still runs on PowerPC 10.5 or later, if you do have a PowerPC 10.4 you can use iTunes 9.2.1. For those that are still running PowerPC G3 can use 8.2.1. I have to confess that I decide to downgrade my iTunes to 8.2.1 because I had a few issues with 9.2.1 the (determining gapless playback information) was driving me crazy.

* VLC – I know many people use the VLC for movies only, but this is a powerful app, perfect to play your audio (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, …). If you are minimalist with your computer, you are not going to need any other app other than this one.  http://www.videolan.org/

* Cog – Simple but plays all the popular formats of audio (Ogg Vorbis, Flac, Musepack, Mp3, Shorten, Wavpack, AAC, and Monkeys Audio). Perfect for PowerPC 10.4.  It’s a light app to have installed in your computer just in case you need it.  As your default audio software, it will meet all your basic requirements, and looks good too!  http://cogx.org/

* Vox – It’s a small yet simple app that also plays everything that you are going to need, including FLAC, MP3, AAC, Musepack, Monkey’s Audio, OGG Vorbis, Apple Lossless, AIFF, WAV, IT, MOD, XM, Games Music and many others.  I recommend that all PowerPC users download this app, as it’s always good to have it.  http://www.voxapp.uni.cc/  Download available here: Vox 0.2.7.1 – http://cl.ly/151K2l2P1F2i

* Audion X – It’s not a popular player, but works really good with PowerPC 10.4.  It’s Easy to use and has some of advanced features ready to be discovered! It plays Audio CDs, MP3s, and streaming network audio.  Even hang with your iPod, light, simple, and powerful.  http://www.panic.com/audion/

* Taply – It’s is a simple soundfile player.  http://www.bluem.net/en/mac/taply/versions/

*SoundApp Reborn – Another simple player. http://thirdcog.eu/apps/soundapp
