Alternative to WMP ?

As the title, is there a good light-weight alternative to WMP?

I'm talking about RAM, speed, and visual likeness?

I don't like Winamp nor iTunes, and I've tried Songbird.

Thanks in advance

Well, I actually use VLC to watch videos, but I was looking for something similar to WMP

Thanks anyway

Media Player Classic looks remarkably like WMP. :)
