Media Players

Post by Natan »

Inspired by psoTFX's post about Foobar.

What media player(s) do you use for your media?

I personally use QCD, which plays every single file type I'll ever need. I love it, and doubt I'll ever trade it for anything else.

I used WMP, but have recently changed it for iTunes. I don't know why, since I neither own an iPod, nor intend to buy music from it :?

Hi!

I prefer BSPlayer because of its features (choosable aspect ratio, subtitle support, multilanguage audio stream support) and nice look (skinnable but I like the default). :-) For previews of partially downloaded stuff I use VLC.

iTunes can now *beep* off.
Everytime I start it, my fileserver (with all my MP3's on) starts going crazy for no explainable reason at all.
WMP, whilst occasionally buggy, doesn't do things like that...

Never had a problem with QCD :)

It's re-examining the library to see if there have been any changes to it. There's a way to turn that off.
You can never go home again... but I guess you can shop there.

Winamp classic...

I just want to listen to my mp3s...no more, no less.

iTunes installed services that for ipod that constantly run...and since I have no ipod I found it irritating....almost as irritating as those Real services.

Foobar2000 for audio, mostly zPlayer (sometimes VLC, depending on the source) for videos.
