    Rev Up Music Programs ... This is almost 2009


    Forgive me for posting a new message about something we discussed the other day. So sorry WMP12 isn't coming for now. I have tried Winamp and J. J. River and Real Player but none of them work right [appeal] for me. Winamp would be good if it played mp4 files, especially the ones I downloaded from youtube, via the keepvid site (good quality and works wikth VLC and many other media players). I can change the colours and tweak the settings. I even make my own skins. Can someone assist me in getting all my video files to work [within the main interface and skin]? I would appreciate it. If I can jump that hurdle then I am free to devote myself to Winamp, etc. Don't care much for J. River Media Jukebox and MC13. They just added a few stuff and are passing it off as new. RealPlayer 10 was good and was a major upgrade to Real Jukebox and Real Audio but really dull and not very creative. Zoom is okay I guess, not very impressive though. VLC is okay for testing files but it doesn't look good and is too simple. I tried Kantaris but didn't like it. Same as GOM Player. I am mainly looking for eye candy with great performance. One more thing about J. River is that it is very expensive. Big turnoff. If anyone knows what I can do to play all video formats in Winamp [latest] let me know ASAP. That is my best choice!

    You need to learn about "codecs". They are little bits of software that allow media players to learn new formats to play. Your best bet would be to go with something that plays the kitchen sink like mplayer or vlc AND has skins and a library. Try bsplayer (seriously!)

    Does anybody know if any of the Vista "codec packs" work in Windows 7?
