im tired of WMP 10 for playing MP3s. What i want is something that plays audio files. Will show a list of songs you have in queue to play. And one that is free. And of corse the obvious stuff like a seek bar and what not... I know there are a million alternatives out there, which is why i take your suggestions over googling to find one.. I just want something real simple.

thanks in advance

Have you tried WMP11? Huge improvements. Beta 2 was released two weeks ago.

Well if you have some free time and don't mind a learning curve, Foobar2000 is an excellent player as well as many other things. Most people are thrown off by the default visual settings though.

I don't know why people dont search more, there are probably 1 million threads on this, on this site alone.

it's always between the WMP fans, Winamp, and Foobar....

winamp is my choice and is one of the more popular ones. It's great all around.

i didnt feel like googeling why would i do an osnn search? I was just lazy and thought it wouldnt be a problem for people to throw out sugguestions. Thanks for the ones that did.

iTunes for Music, Quicktime for movies. Realplayer for realplayer movies. WMP for Windows media movies. Or if on a mac, install Flip4Mac.

I've used Winamp for years really, meets all my needs and is relatively light on resources.

Even has a plugin so you can add stuff to your iPod without having to load iTunes :)

All what he says but you should try VLC player for avi/wmv ... It is pretty good and has a nice, clean appearence. The only thing I would NOT recomend is musicmatch jukebox. Winamp is really great and so is iTunes.

There are so many choices, cause there are 5 or 6 ones out there that will do what you need, and are great.

After using WMP11 I would never consider using WMP10. Huge improvements as I said in my first post. The library is much more organized and functional. Syncing with my device is a snap. It's just pretty.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
