What software are people using to play music on a computer? Forum poll limitations restrict us to 10, which means 9 actual selections and the "Other" marker.

Obvious candidates include:
foobar2000
iTunes
Winamp
dBpoweramp
J River Media Centre
Amarok
deadbeef
Windows Media Player
XMPlay

If I had to go with 9, it'd be these ones. Persuade me otherwise! smile.gif

The *nix section really has to include MPD, which can be taken to mean "mpd+client(s)". It's rather hard to imagine running MPD but no client, or trying to use one of its clients without MPD, so there isn't much point in either splitting hairs or in caring much which exact client is favoured. Anyone with both headless and GUI machines may well use two different clients; add tablets and phones and MPD's native http streaming server and a single user might use 3, 4 or even 5 different platform or desktop specific clients plus a plain www browser at different times, all in fact controlling MPD. Simply listing "MPD" is concise and sane.

mplayer is another application that probably should be in any list. The command line application is a useful player (can play gapless with a named pipe) and also serves as a back end for lots and lots of other players (see http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/projects.html). Again it would make sense imo for "mplayer" to mean all the various GUIs and front ends.
