Am I the only one here who uses Windows Media Player??

I like it - it's integrated and has a nice shiney cataloging system.
I like Foobar as well, but I use MP3s exclusively so I don't need the added codecs.

..and NO, I don't do my ripping with WMP. THAT would be irrational.

Foobar2000 for pretty much the same reasons as ssamadhi97. Except that I have not used the SDK yet, but I hope to have a go at that too sometime.
One thing I really love about foobar2000, is the ability to customize the playlist display and such. Still working on the perfect formatting for my taste and needs. This in combination with Replaygain makes it my choice.
For a long time I thought I would never replace Winamp 2.xx, especially after the disappointing Winamp 3. But some months back I proved myself wrong.
Foobar2000 just works well for everything I expect it to, and even more.
I guess there are plugins for Winamp that can do alot of the same as foobar does, but they seem to get lost among all the plugins I find useless.

I've tried many different players and like aspects of most of them but I seem to find myself coming back to Winamp 2 (Lite version) every time. I must admit that I like the variety of skins available (even if this doesn't have to do with sound quality) and the general ease of use and familiarity after using it so long.

And yeah, gotta love those llamas. tongue.gif

I tried foobar2k for a while because I heard it was more efficient and powerful than Winamp. But I did some tests, and with the most common formats I use (mp3, mpc), while minimized to the taskbar, Winamp2.91 used 3/4 of the memory foobar.667 did. As an exception, foo's ogg playback used considerably less memory than Winamp's, but I don't have many oggs anyway. Another point: foobar would occasionally jump the cpu usage up to 8 or 18% while decoding mpc and mp3. For winamp, it never goes >1%.


I didn't change any of the settings in foobar, left them exactly how they came. If you can think of something that would affect the above results, I would love to hear it.


Also, I like Winamp's media library plugin, and the fact that I can play video without resorting to a separate program. Moreover, if I need a plugin to do something specific, I can be almost certain that I will find one for Winamp. For instance, I have a 'Now Playing' plugin that works as a mini http server, and I run it all the time without a noticeable increase in memory usage. Personally, the skins don't really come into the issue, although it is an added bonus that they are so readily available.

Yet another poll that leaves off XMMS, the most popular UNIX audio player.

XMMS (rock stable, many plug-ins), if I have to use my Windows box I use Foobar 2k (no bloat, small and fast, all plug-ins I need except AC3)

I have tried or used MusicMatch 5/6, Realplayer 7, something with a bright big bulky interface whose name I forget now, The Xing player, Zinf audio player (the old name and new name version) ,several others on my crash box, WA 2.77 & WA3, but now I use Foobar for everything.
For the rare times I am in linux I use XMMS, but I am bit thickheaded in that environment and still need to figure how to get the APE support working there so I can listen to 75% of my music collection.
