What's the best way to turn an iTunes (Mac) playlist into a self-contained Flash player that will play the music in that playlist? It seems like someone should have already figured this out and created some kind of script that can do it, but I haven't been able to find any such thing.

Is there a way that I can use Windows Media Player 11 as my podcast aggregator? I use Juice Receiver, but would like an all in one solution that will help sync up with my MP3 player.

Is there such a thing as a 'Free Audio Embed Player'?
I am wondering if its possible to upload an mp3 file to a domain and use some free audio player that has the embed options so I can use the player on other sites (myspace bulletins for example)
Thanks [more inside]

Last week I downloaded Windows Media Player 11, to complement Real Alternative and all the other MPs on my system. Now, every time it finishes playing a movie clip, it wants to go online. I could block it with Zone Alarm, but I want to stop the behaviour in options. Anyone know which option stimulates the player to do this, and where to switch it off?

My Creative MP3 players stopped working right after 1 year, warranty expired, credit card did not want to do anything for me, no real help from manufacturer... it really sucks that I paid $100 each (I got 2) and was only able to use them for a year. What are my options now? or I just have to eat the cost? [more inside]

Looking for a web-based FLV player (ideally want it to approximate the youtube one.) For-pay is fine. The usage has to be just 'pass your flv url to the player and it plays' (ie. not something that requires manipulation in Macromedia Flash to work.) Any pointers? Thanks.

I'm playing a certain flash game. I'd like to be able to pause when I like, repeat levels at will, and so on (the game does not normally allow this). What's my best bet? Any cool standalone flash players that will let me do this?

Is there any flash-based mp3 player that plays WAV files, has an FM tuner, records standard (44.1) WAV files from this FM tuner, has a 1GB or higher capacity, and is not much over $100? (I'm also grateful for any "almost" answers, since those might help me refine my Googling.)

I boght a 40GB Ipod back in the day when they were relatively new and, as such, I payed full whack. It broke down during warranty and I was issued with a new Ipod and now the new Ipod has broken down outside of warranty. I was gobsmacked to discover that Apple require ~£160 merely to look at the Ipod without guaranteeing the fixing of it. All this has led me to ask the question, are consumable electronics of this nature designed to have a short shelf life with the cost of fixture used to make you purchase the next generation? Am I wrong to feel agrieved at this? [more inside]

Can a CD damage a player? I'm not talking about a really dirty or greasy CD, but an OK-looking used CD with a scratch or some dirt I didn't notice? I hate to put used CDs in my car player (the last one broke during the first play of a good-looking used CD, but it may have just worn out), but don't know if I'm being careful or just nuts.

I'm looking to rip my 300 CDs on to my computer in preparation for an portable audio player. What is the best quality compressed format for music? I'm thinking MP3, as its universal - but as far as I can see there are different types of MP3 driver/convertor formats. Help me through the minefield!
(As a bonus question, what's considered the ultimate 20gig(ish) MP3 player at the moment?)

My DVD player (Sony DVP-NS325) hangs. The discs work okay on my computer. It's 2+ years old and is currently the source of a great amount of agita
in my life. My television is ancient, so I'm running the DVD player through a box that is supposed to allow me to connect multiple components (DVD, VCR, games) to a single television, although I don't have all the other components, so only the DVD player is running through it. Is it time for a new player? Will cleaning the discs help? How does one clean (um, and not DAMAGE) DVDs?
