View Full Version : What music/media player do you use personally?

Post what you use along with maybe a download link, free or not. Im just interested in seeing what you all use.
I personally found Foobar2000 about 3 years ago and have been using it since for my music management. I love it, basic, very very quick, allows for tabbed playlists which is a must for me. I love organization and Foobar2000 lets me have it. Plus its free!
For videos/movies/etc i use VLC. Great player also.

I use winamp on my phone and to transfer music to my phone, but I tend to use Spotify to listen to music while on the computer

Ah, nice. The new Winamp supports transfer to Android now correct?

Banshee for music, VLC for movies, MythTV for recorded TV.

I don't generally sit around and listen to music. For the ipod that I keep in the car, I've got iTunes set up for a few playlists and would use that.
For video, I use MediaPortal and have it play on the 42" across the room.

Spotify - PC
Spotify - Phone
Works great and syncs my playlists even when I'm not at home!

Aqualung on the PC/ laptop
Eltax car radio (takes SD cards - very handy :cool:)
Various little MP3/OGG players.
Not using the Android to play music

I still just use my iTunes, does the job for me with playlists etc.
12-18-2010, 09:50 PM
All I really listen to are podcasts, and I just use my iphone for that.

Since ditching my iPhone for a HTC Mozart 7, I'm so glad to be rid of iTunes for Zune instead.

It is funny, because 5 years ago, there would have only been 2 answers. The variety of solutions here is a testament to where technology is now taking us. What a ride!

I use winamp pro. I purchased it in 2007 and have been happy with it since.
12-19-2010, 04:38 AM
winamp for music + gom for video.
12-19-2010, 05:11 AM
I use VLC for video, and iTunes for audio.
12-19-2010, 11:43 PM
Video: Windows Media Player has come a long way.Alternatively VLC player.
Music: MediaMonkey great little program once you get used to it.
12-20-2010, 05:12 AM
Oh, I also use VLC for .mov videos. No more pesky quicktime.

For music and media entertainment buffs and enthusiasts I reccomend
J.River media center for pc or laptops. Most of my music 25,000 tracks so far, home movies and photos are played/viewed with J.River, it is also DLNA
certified with DLNA server, works better than others I have tried, I can stream photos over my network direct to TV or stream my music to my BD 5.1surround sound system.
It can interface with most phones, including Iphone and most mp3 players, it has a very flexible and comprehensive tagging system, easy to manage especialy for large collections/database. It isn't free, but is the best on the market and I have used it for several years.
music: jaangle (http://www.jaangle.com/download)
video: MPC (http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/)
both are simply simple.. and jaangle is quite light on memory usage. i only have 1GB of RAM anyway.. ;)

Itunes for music as it does the job for me. For everything else I use VLC Player.
12-31-2010, 09:40 PM
winamp for years but my music needs are pretty simple.
01-01-2011, 06:16 PM
I'm pretty conservative: Winamp for music (this baby has been around for ages) and VLC for video
01-01-2011, 07:13 PM
Winamp and Media Monkey

Media Player Classic Home Cinema, the one that comes with K-lite code pack.
Easy, simple, perfect.
Got my eyes on Spotify for music though.
