This is POS of a player.

If you like winamp style audio player without all the garbage, Try AIMP, lightweight no nonsense that just work, plus it has tabbed playlist which is golden for anyone who like to listen to different genre.

Tried this, both lite and larger, because foobar is just silly when it comes to ease of use and configuration, though it does work well.

Tried Mediamonkey but it's way too much if a resource hog for what it does and tries to hijack all of your file associations. Even video files.

Well, this looks simpler but it ain't. Bloated, useless piece of crap with a prettified interface that doesn't work properly.

Not only that but when you uninstall this POS it's still trying to associate files. Don't you morons know enough to change the registry back properly? Idiots.

So, back to Foobar.

Winamp rocks!
This is the media player for almost all your needs. The only thing I don't use it for is DVDs (although there is a plugin on the Winamp site if you want to use it). If you have the codecs installed Winamp will play anything WMP will play (well so far for me, however doesn't play media in the web browser - I use Real Alternative Player for that). So you can get rid of WMP completely (remove it from your next Windows reinstall - google for nLite). Winamp is far less system hungry than WMP (10 anyway, I have't tried WMP11 yet), especially in oldschool (classic-v2.x) mode. My brother runs it (v5.22 I think) on his 1Ghz celery with no worries (plays continuosly even when doing other stuff). I used to play games like Quake4 and HalfLife 2 with Winamp playing MP3s in the background with no worries (try doing that on my computer with WMP! - not likely!)
