Windows Media Player 12

I have discovered that wmp 12 is the best media software ever created pure and simple(with a few extensions).I have been in love with winamp but not anymore.not after installing K Lite Mega Codec Pack 7.9.0 and WMP tag plus,after that i have completely changed my mind(i have a large FLAC collection).And the audioerfect!!.
WMP 12 and SRS HD AUDIO LAB rocks my world it is a exceptional compination.
But it is off course ONLY my oppinion. Asser.

There is one player I know of that will play pretty much anything without codecs, it also supports a ton of streaming and network features.
VideoLAN - Download official VLC media player for Windows

I don't know why people hang on to using wmp. it's terrible. the only thing I like about it is it's library.
but for a player it's very limited and terrible.

VLC is by far the best player out there. I love how you can record parts of a dvd while it's playing.

Yeah, I use it for listening to Shoutcast streams. I bookmark the URL's for easy access to a bunch of stations. It's like listening to the radio, but mostly commercial free.

But, I agree. I don't use it for watching video. There are better alternatives.

Some people love it, some hate it. If you've ever pulled your hair out trying to get it to play a certain file, you'll know why many people hate it. When people have to resort to another player to play files, that's when they turn on WMP.
But I'm glad you enjoy it.
