it does work. You have to have either win amp (I think that's what the other is...can't really remember since I don't use that particular program) or iTunes on before starting the function.

Once iTunes is started go back in-game and start the music player and you can hear whatever play list you have going.

I asked a dev about that in a PM. No one has been albe to answer yet on how it works, other than what I already figured out in-game.

Actually I personally find a bit of heavy metal serves better for blasting

Nothing like blasting Dark Moor and referring to it as 'Classic Earth Music'. :3

(They did a lot of power metal covers of classical music.)

you start up winamp or itunes and then go in game, the control in game just lets you control your player a bit.

works great with winamp.

Electro-Industrial is the best for space combat

Definitely.

My suggestion? "Laser Cannon Deth Sentence", by Dethklok. It's actually pretty perfect. When the Cardassians turn tail and try to flee as the "DUH-DUH-DUH-DUH-DUH-DUH-DUH-DUH-DUH-DUH-DUH-DIE!!!" begins, the effect is truly sublime.

In between combats, though, I've been favoring techno (anything Underworld, with Fatboy Slim's "Sunset (Bird of Prey)" for hunting Klingons) for in-system travel, and Stone Temple Pilots' "Interstate Love Song" for the long slog out to the nebulas.

Hi guys,

I use Winamp, but guess the process is the same for iTunes:

1, At your liesure, make a playlist in Winamp.

1(a), Start Winamp
2, Start playing your playlist (set repeat / random as you wish)
3, Start STO lancher and Engage!
4, Once you get past Log in and are playing, go to the audio options and select Winamp as your music (media?) player and save / exit options
5, Start the ingame music player and enjoy your playlist while gaming - music player allows playlist manipulation

As I do not have iTunes, I can only speculatet that you can adapt the process for said.

Hope this helps some of you.
