My favourite is Media Player Classic, I've been using it for a long time. Now I use the Homecinema version of Media Player Classic since that's the version being developed.

I just use the builtin WMP and had zero problems. Maybe I'm missing some exciting functions, but if you have never had anything else you don't miss it. Kind regards

Anyone who doesn't use VLC needs their brain scanned.

VLC cannot play Theora 720p. :( It crashes when I try to play this 1280×720 Ogg file: http://www.bigbuckbunny.org/index.php/download/ It can play 1920×1080. Here is another example: http://www.xiph.org/video/vid1.shtml I have sent crash reports, so hopefully they will fix it. ;)

Hi there languy99, I've never tried VLC, just for general watching of short videos from e-mails or web sites and playing cds would I get much benefit from using it over WMP. Thanks languy99 and Kind regards

a few things, it is lighter on the computer, it plays a ton of different files, it is more secure among others.

Audio: foobar2000 (player, CD ripper, transcoder)

 :-TU

I'm continually amazed at just how powerful Foobar2000 is.

I'm not fond of its ripping capabilities though. I prefer Exact Audio Copy for ripping.
