Naxos Problems

By , July 30, 2008 3:40 pm

The Naxos Music Library is in the process of undergoing some changes. The primary change is that they will be using a new music player beginning sometime in September. This is instead of using the Windows Media Player within their website. This is a good change, but until that happens, we will be having some problems with Macs playing the music in Naxos. Browsing still works, but actually playing the music is a problem due to some technical issues.

To solve this problem, Naxos has set us up with our own login. If someone from Butler is on a Mac (whether on campus or off) and wants to listen to music from Naxos, they will have to follow these steps:

1. Download Flip4Mac, which is a plugin allowing QuickTime to play Windows Media Player files. It can be downloaded for free at http://www.flip4mac.com/wmv_download.htm
2. Go to http://naxosmusiclibrary.com and log in with Butler01 as the username and the password.
3. Use Naxos as you normally would. Music should now play properly. (Please let Scott Pfitzinger know if there are any problems at this point.)
