So that's gonna be very interesting...
I sadly didn't have have space to include some other famous players I know of, just check the last option if you use one of them.

I use iTunes, MacAmp Lite X, Audion, and XMMS.
Guess though you're just interested in PC progs.

WinAmp2 because of MExp Plug-in (http://www.mexp.dk) and Adapt-X plug-in.

Embrace for impact! This thread will soon turn into fb2k mania heaven.

I don't know what Windows Media Player Classic is.
There is Windows Media Player on one side. One the other side there is Media Player Classic.
And Media Player Classic has nothing to do with Windows. It is developped by Gabest. The only common point with Windows is that it really looks like Windows Media Player 7. That's all. But, Media Player Classic is just much better.

BTW, I use both fb2k for audio files and Media Player Classic for video files, but had to vote only once.

Perhaps there should be separate polls for music players and video players, because there's so many players around ..

I use XMPlay for music and Bsplayer for video.

A poll for audio player was already made last month:
http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=10369 (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=10369)
Still, there were too many players to mention them all.

A poll for video players could be created @Off-Topic (or @Doom9), why not?

I'm the only one so far who voted for Windows Media Player...I'm not sure how to feel about that, like a standout or like a leper.   

Anyway, I use it and dBpowerAMP for audio and Intervideo WinDVD Platinum for video (only because I get an ugly interference line down the right side of the window when viewing a DVD in WMP).

I've used WMP for a long time because it's easy.  I originally let it do everything for me: rip, encode and manage.  Now, I don't use it for ripping or encoding at all, but I still use it to manage.  I know there are probably better tools out there, though.  As a player, dBpowerAMP has more flexibility IMO, with more available plug-ins, so I'm using it more and more often.  But I still prefer WMP's playlist management, as long as "automatic media info updating" is turned off to prevent it from moving my music around.   

I'd really like to figure out how to use FB2K since everyone seems to rave about it, but it just seems really cryptic to me.  It seems like FB2K is to digital audio players what UNIX is to operating systems...very complex but very powerful.  I'll keep trying at it...

I am most definitely in the foobar2k camp - have tried many other players out there in the past few years and foobar has the best balance of nice GUI and functionality for me. (probably about what I posted in the last thread on this topic)

I use XMMS for the currently rare moments that I have linux up - I only have one monitor for both my win crash box and *nix system and the win box is normally using it recently.

Windows Media Player for audio and Zoomplayer for video. Winamp2 only for the few MPC's I have. I hardly ever listen to MP3's or other lossy codecs anymore. Huge modern hard disks made lossy codecs obsolete for me. But they surely make sense in other contexts and for other people of course...

Should try Foobar...

Winamp 2.95 with Album List 1.42.

If Foobar could do what winamp Albumlist does (can it???) then I'd probably use it. But on my system there are no real advantages in using Foobar. Winamp does all I need and it looks much prettier.

I am using Winamp since version 1.45 and I still like it a lot.

Anyway, I saw people asking about the difference between Windows Media Player and Windows Media Player Classic: Windows Media Player is the program "wmplayer.exe", while Windows Media Player Classic is "mplayer2.exe".

Media Player Classic is an extremely light-weight media player for Windows. It looks just like the good-old Media Player v6.4, but has lots of nice extra features.
MPC has, for instance, a built in DVD player with real-time zoom, support for AVI subtitles, QuickTime and RealVideo support (requires QT and/or Real player), and lots more.
Definitely a great replacement for the huge and clumsy Microsoft Media Players.
Did you know that all Windows distributions still include the old Media Player v6.4? You can run it by clicking Start, Run and entering MPLAYER2.EXE

I think there is no more confusion now. We have:
- Media Player Classic (homepage: http://gabest.org/ (http://gabest.org/) )
- Windows Media Player (the program "wmplayer.exe")
- "mplayer2.exe" which is the old Windows Media Player v6.4 (but, why call it "classic"?).

Media Player Classic (the one by Gabest) for Video and foobar2000 for audio. It's that simple. Both currently represent state-of-the-art technology, have a rather minimal approach and their developers support/contribute to other projects as well..

Can you tell me how to do it then ...???

I have albums saved as Genre/Artist/Album/track.mp3 What I want is to be able to list albums based on their directory hierarchy, and *NOT* based on their tags. Winamp albumlist does this easily. So how can you do it in Foobar?

Something like this:

$directory(%_path%,3)|$directory(%_path%,2)|$directory(%_path%,1)|%_filename%
should do the trick (in albumlist settings / tree hierarchy).

Thanks zZzZzZz - it did the trick perfectly!
I wish the Foobar docs were a bit easier to get and a bit more newbie friendly. not being a programmer it wan't too easy to work this out for myself.

This is exactly why I love FB2K so much: it's incredibly flexible, but you have to take your time playing around with it. The album list is a good example: after experimenting with it for a while, I found out that I no longer need any other external media organizer.

Another reason why I love FB2K is the universal and transparent tagging and replay (album!) gain support for all formats (MP3,MPC,OGG,FLAC,APE,...).

Incredible work by Peter.

I'm a Foobar2k converted and use it on a daily basis. I enjoy the flexibility of its playlist, replay gain and the kernel streaming.

I still use Winamp3 sometimes for its Media Library, I do like this tool (despite some bugs...) and it is the only one working propely for *.ape files (my format of choice) thanks to Case plugin.

They use mplayer to decode, I was actually on about the whole audio pipeline - gapless, for example, doesn't really work with their model As a codec, mplayer is fine.

Winamp 2.95 can be found here (http://mirror1.winampheaven.net/).  It's not linked through Nullsoft's site, but they answer questions about it there, so it's "semi-supported", whether or not it's officially supported.  I used it for a few months before getting Winamp 5 pre-alpha...it works about the same as 2.91 does, as far as I could tell...no major bugs that I found.

I'm now using Winamp5_beta2 with Albumlist plugin for audio. I tried fb2k and quite liked it - it CAN do all I wanted it to do - but (call me shallow) the winamp aesthetics won it over for me. Given the relatively low quality of my audio equipment the difference in sound quality between the two players is negligible if at all noticeable.

For video (in Windows) a great alternative is Media Player Classic (http://sourceforge.net/projects/guliverkli)

Not prepared to follow the crowd, I use all three of the best players:

1: 1by1 -- the most overlooked piece of software ever created! Dammit, the latest version is only 47 kb to download! Does exactly what it should do with no fuss, plays back almost any format and uses hardly any resources at ALL.

2: QCD -- it does almost everything I need it to and does it very well.

3: foobar2000 -- great player, just a little too over-complex in the wrong hands for it's own good.

But that IS what the "crowd" uses (around here, anyway).  Not following the crowd would be to use Winamp.   

BTW...I voted (long ago) for Winamp2, but with the release of Winamp5beta2 my preference has changed to that.  My favorite features are:

-1- Comfort.  Yes, I know...not a seemingly valid argument for an audio player, but once you're thoroughly used to something, it's hard to let go.  I use a system-level hot-key plug-in to control it, so I hardly see the interface, and therefore operation is blindingly fast and second nature.  (I know foobar2000 is controllable via hot-keys too, but I can't pry myself away from Winamp...yet.)

-2- Milkdrop.  I assume this could work with any player, but it comes pre-packaged with Winamp5, and is by far the best visualization I've seen.  (Not a priority for personal use, but for parties it gets raves.)

-3- A butt-ugly interface (BUI).  I don't care for most skins I've seen.  foobar2000 may be called minimalist, but it's still nicer to look at than Winamp's classic skin.  And I won't use another skin because one of my critical plug-ins (MuchFX2) doesn't match other skins.  Sounds like I'm complaining, but I'm actually fond of Winamp's "BUI", because as said before, I'm used to it.  The few times I ever see it, it's strangely comforting...I can't explain it.  Mmmm...black and green...so soothing.   

As for any other feature/benefit...all these players are just too similar to really compare.  The ones I've tried the most (Winamp, QCD, fb2k) all play any format I use, all do playlist management, all have the other features I need, and all have the same sound quality.  So all that's left to compare is the menial stuff I guess.

I use both winamp (2.95) and foobar2k myself, but I voted for foobar because I use it somewhat more often these days.

Why do I feel like a unitarian?

Audio:
Winamp 2/5 because it's the only player with integrated monkey ass raping
Well, jokes aside, I like its handy interface and its loads of plugins for all possible needs. And sound quality isn't as bad as many claim. Peter did a good job ensuring that for some years with his in/out plugins.

Video:
a) BSPlayer: Nice interface, full-featured and ultra fast for my relatively slow (800 mhz) PC.

B) Media Player Classic: To play realplayer and quicktime content.

And what gave you the idea that input/output plugins (other than mp3 decoder maybe or resampling outputs on a soundcard with broken resampling) affect sound quality ? Your post is in violation of ToS #8.

Zinf seems like a nice MP3-player - if it weren't so awfully slow. For movie players - either MPlayer, xine or VLC would probably be your best bet. MPlayer is the fastest and most user-unfriendly player out there  (Even on Windows PCs.)

Unfair vote!!!!
HA hosts Foobar--Here users use it more than others. I think if you post this vote in CoolPlayer's or QCD's forum, they will choose QCD or CoolPlayer, Not foobar as their favorite player.

I'm using WMP 9, for the simple reason that I like the media library.  Do any of the other players that have been mentioned have a similar feature?  I like that I can simply set it to monitor a specific folder for new files when it's running, the automatically add them to the library.

Is WA5beta5 publicly available?  If so, wherewherewhere?

Or are you a member of a secret "Winamp beta-test society", and if you told me you'd have to kill me?

leave those remarks to yourself and don't type such bullshit in the future, it's uncalled for and unwelcomed.
