So that's gonna be very interesting...
I sadly didn't have have space to include some other famous players I know of, just check the last option if you use one of them.

WinAmp2 because of MExp Plug-in and Adapt-X plug-in.

Embrace for impact! This thread will soon turn into fb2k mania heaven. ph34r.gif

I don't know what Windows Media Player Classic is.
There is Windows Media Player on one side. One the other side there is Media Player Classic.
And Media Player Classic has nothing to do with Windows. It is developped by Gabest. The only common point with Windows is that it really looks like Windows Media Player 7. That's all. But, Media Player Classic is just much better.

BTW, I use both fb2k for audio files and Media Player Classic for video files, but had to vote only once.

Yes, that's right, maybe I didn't made the question clear enough... Sorry.
As Windos-user seem to be the majority here, I found that quite fitting rolleyes.gif

Your are right about that, my mistake.

I'm using foobar2000, but somebody could say that my player is a rare hybrid of Winamp 2, Windows Media (6.4, of course) and foobar2000. rolleyes.gif

Perhaps there should be separate polls for music players and video players, because there's so many players around dry.gif..

I use XMPlay for music and Bsplayer for video.

A poll for audio player was already made last month:
http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=10369
Still, there were too many players to mention them all.

A poll for video players could be created @Off-Topic (or @Doom9), why not?

I'm the only one so far who voted for Windows Media Player...I'm not sure how to feel about that, like a standout or like a leper. laugh.gif

Anyway, I use it and dBpowerAMP for audio and Intervideo WinDVD Platinum for video (only because I get an ugly interference line down the right side of the window when viewing a DVD in WMP).

I've used WMP for a long time because it's easy. I originally let it do everything for me: rip, encode and manage. Now, I don't use it for ripping or encoding at all, but I still use it to manage. I know there are probably better tools out there, though. As a player, dBpowerAMP has more flexibility IMO, with more available plug-ins, so I'm using it more and more often. But I still prefer WMP's playlist management, as long as "automatic media info updating" is turned off to prevent it from moving my music around. blink.gif

I'd really like to figure out how to use FB2K since everyone seems to rave about it, but it just seems really cryptic to me. It seems like FB2K is to digital audio players what UNIX is to operating systems...very complex but very powerful. I'll keep trying at it...

Xmms for audio, and mplayer for video. My Windows using friends are jealous of mplayer because it plays more formats than anything else. tongue.gif

I am most definitely in the foobar2k camp - have tried many other players out there in the past few years and foobar has the best balance of nice GUI and functionality for me. (probably about what I posted in the last thread on this topic)

I use XMMS for the currently rare moments that I have linux up - I only have one monitor for both my win crash box and *nix system and the win box is normally using it recently.

foobar2000 because I can configure every detail to my taste, and it has no will of it's own to make strange things happen.
