I finally was forced to upgrade to iTunes 11 in order to upgrade my iPhone's operating system. I think I can get a reasonable replacement to iTunes DJ with smart playlists, but the one thing that is killing me is the new MiniPlayer.
The two issues I have with it are that it doesn't show the time remaining in my track, and that it doesn't scroll long track names (except once at the beginning of the track).
Now, if it is indeed possible to do this, I'd love to hear how, but I am not very hopeful.
Are there any good MiniPlayer replacements out there? The only ones I found were for Windows. I'd just like some kind of small persistant window that shows me what is playing in iTunes.
