I've had music players on Android (e.g. MixZing) that also have a feature to suggest music you might like based on what's in your library. I believe iTunes does something similar ("Genius"? Or that might be something else), but I've had too many frustrations with iTunes in the past.
Are there any high quality media library applications for desktop (Windows & Mac) that do this?
Key criteria are:
- Standard desktop music player / media manager features like ripping from CD (yeah, some people still like to buy CDs...), looking up media tags, browse by artist/genre etc, search, playlists...
- Some feature that scans your library and/or playing history and offers recommendations based on what other people with similar tastes are getting into
- Not iTunes. Minimal bloat.
- Bonus points if it can also create automatic playlists of your existing music based on recent listening (what MixZing calls "MoodPlayer")
I'm interested in both Windows and Mac, so bonus points if one app runs on both; but a good Windows option and a separate good Mac option would be great too.
So basically, something like WinAmp but with a recommendations feature for discovering new music (and available to download - WinAmp's in legal limbo at time of writing after being ditched by AOL, not expected to be resolved until late 2015).
