OK, so what is your favourite media player? And why?
These are media players I have used. I know there are more, like AIMP, MediaMonkey and others, but I think these five are the most used anyway. You can still vote for the 'others', but please specify which one.
Like I said, I know all of these media players, but there's only one winner for me: Winamp. I like how it's so easy to use and I've used this program since its initial release on april 21, 1997. Coincidentally, same year and date as my little brother's birth.
Too bad they decided to shut it down... (Winamp I mean, not my brother).
So without updates (and it's given me a script error everytime since the shutdown) I'm willing to go for something else.
I've been using Windows Media Player for a few weeks now and it's better than I expected. A giant leap forward from earlier releases. For instance, the library function is pretty neat. But like with all things Windows, WMP has the bad habit of doing things to my system behind my back. Like secretly downloading album art and (even worse) deleting manually downloaded album art. This is a real pain.
The other player I still regularly use is VLC. But I use it only for playing video (avi's) and DVDs.
I'm very interested in what kind of audio player you use!
