I use :

MPC + ffdshow,

Plays everything, light, and only plays medias.

It can also record if you need.

MPC (official builds) : http://sourceforge.net/projects/guliverkli/

MPC (nightly) : http://ffdshow.faireal.net/mirror/Media%20Player%20Classic/

Also, MPlayer+MPUI (NB: gMPlayer for windows is official now)

MPUI is a frontend for MPlayer which is a command-line player, the best frontend imho.

MPlayer is able to dump stream, audio, video or both.

It plays even more than vlc.

It decodes and seek sooo fast, the only choice if you need a previewer for a P2P client.

Last it's really light.

Oh, and forgot : decoding quality is excellent.

MPlayer (official, mainly standalone but you may need so files from the official package) : http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/news.html

download : http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html

CVS builds (platform optimized) : http://ffdshow.faireal.net/mirror/mplayer/

MPUI : http://mpui.sourceforge.net/ (to be put in the same folder as mplayer.exe)

the only 2 media players that i use are foobar2000 and Media Player Classic. foobar2000 is what i use for my huge collection of music and Media Player Classic for videos and single music files. there is nothing better than the combination of those two :)

rulesPlayer looks nice.

But I'm wondering how old it is. Is it more than 2 months old ?

i use iTunes for my music collection, i always hated apple, but then before i got my iPod i started using iTunes and i like it. its easy to use. i just like the way it organizes my music, all in one list. its better than Win media player in that respect. Winamp has that feature, but im not crazy about the look of winamp anymore. iv gone off it it :unsure:

anyway, regards

Winamp 2.91 for audio

Winamp 2.91 for video using VID4WA plugin (+full dvd support)

Plays any audio\video as long as the codecs are installed.

Reason for winamp 2.91? Does what I need with low resource usage and zero complaints.

thats a great verrsion of winamp for older computers or if you just dont need/want all the extra stuff. besides, it does what winamp 5.1 does, plays mp3's right?

Latest winamp for music.

And another vote for ZoomPlayer for video (it TRULY blows everything else away in terms of playback configuration i.e. custom media playback mode; ffdshow for post-processing!) I also VLC and MPC occasionnaly... They're not bad, but it's not quite ZP.
