What media player do you use? 2013-02-19 21:24:56 Reply

Right now I am using the media player that comes with windows7. However I hate the layout. I want to find a media player that is like the old napster. If anyone here remembers that or not. The layout in songs condensed together is what I am looking for, or very simlar to the XP windows version media player.

I seriously hate the media player I got, and I cant seem to customise so I like it.

Winamp for audio, wmp for video. Wmp works always works perfectly fine for me if I have good codecs.

This has nothing to do with hating Apple.

It has to do with supporting open source projects.

They work just as well as the other programs anyways.

Zune and still loving it. Can't wait to see what Xbox Music will bring in the next major release, though.

I'm surprised no one else mentioned VLC. I switched over to it a while back and have never looked back.

I dont need pointless features, and thats completely irrelevent.

The fact is that iTunes is clearly not the best unless you purchase music from it, and saying ALAC is better than FLAC is probably the stupidest thing Ive heard so far this year to the point where im stuggling to believe you arent trolling.

VLC or Windows Media Center depending on the file type.

VLC has been dicking up lately, though; I'll tell it to play a file and it'll take at least 5 minutes to open.

I usually use Windows Media Player.
For files that it won't run, I use VLC.

support on idevices

Flac is undeniably supported on far more things such as Android (natively).

the only advantages that flac files actually have are boring, useless (to me), technical details (integrated replaygain support! slightly better compression!)

Which makes flac better for most people who arent you.

You've said that for almost everything here. Your virus scanner is too fucking sensitive.

nice

You're an idiot if you don't believe that VLC is legit

Word.
Your scanner is either super sensitive, or a virus itself.
You'd think someone who's been here over a decade would know that.
Hmph.

Thats not true. The higher end phones are techically superior to the iPhone in pretty much every way. Its a very non-sensical argument considering how much the devices can differ and how closed the Apple equivelants are. And youre disgregarding the argument that more devices support it to voice your own irrelevent opinion on them.

and standardized metadata alone trumps any tiny technical advantages flac may have

Hardly, its not as if it has no metadata at all, and I find larger support and better compression to be more important.
Not to mention that FLAC is incredibly efficient and can be streamed and decoded quickly.
