winamp 5 rocks - such a lot of things in such a small package - and dare to show me another app that does all that wa5 does with such a small memory foot-print and HD space.

Of course, the pro features are another attraction.

have you noticed that winamp 5 no longer plays .asf files if you have the K-Lite codec pack installed ? (maybe the BSplayer of the pack interferes with wa5). Only WMP9 gets to play wmv and asf if you install the k-lite codec pack.

I gotta go with the new Winamp. Great plugin support. Plays all my monkey files and most everything else. Pretty good video in this version too. I use Real Alternative to play any real media I come across.

I use Media player 8 that came with XP. I like it and have some very nice skins with it. I have the Plus programme on the beast as well and it added some useful things to Media player.

I havent used Winamp since version 2? Maybe I should consider the new one? :)

I've always used Winamp since its first version!! :D
Too nice and reliable, even if the last version (5.01) is a bit slow instead of its previous version (but full of new features) :rolleyes:

I use WMP, I tried winamp, but it was too heavy and featureless IMO. Its a shame there aren't many decent skins for WMP

WMP 9 is great and will be integrated in SP2 :)

it lacks of good skins tough :rolleyes:
probably harder to make a user-friendly skin for WMP than for winamp

Itunes for me. If I need a quick preview, I use Irfanview.

:blushing: Personally I use Media Monkey for my libraryof mp3z.
But..... VLC is really excellent as it reads everything from DVD to music playlists.
Okay its not very pretty but the good thing is works.
Oh, and if I just want to listen to a song that I've just downloaded I use Picaview.

@dev2761 - you really dug out an old one here.

WMP for me (since the topic only covers music).

Winamp for audio. WMP9 for video.

I tried using Foobar2000 for audio a while back... just didn't have the right feel to it. Winamp 5.08e with classic skins, Global Hotkeys, and the Media Library just can't be beat.

WMP10 is just big a fugly... too much fancy crap in there. WMP9 with the classic skin is good enough for me.

I use Windows Media Player 10.

I also have used Winamp since v2. When 3 came out I didn't like it, took too much ram. So I never used it again.

Winamp 2 rocked, Winamp 3 sucked and Winamp 5 is back there rocking at the top!!

With the Tara plugin it'll play those quicktime and real media vids too and I found the cleanest skin ever. It's called Classix, It's a modern skin but all the buttons and text are highly readable without being bulky. Plus it comes with loads of different colors. The slate color match perfectly with my Codename: Opus Alpha XP visual style :)

The only problem I'm having at the moment is getting Launch.com videos to play. I don't think I can do it Winamp so I've been trying VideoLan and Media Player Classic but I keep getting a save this file prompt from firefox when it trys to open the medialog.asp file that comes from launch. Ah well a minor problem.

I'd just like to add that this set of 'lite' codecs really help when wanting to play everything in one player. E.g. no RealPlayer, Quicktime or Media Player.
