Windows 7: What is the safest music player to use?

What is the safest music player to use?

Hi! What is the safest music player to use? I never download music. So should I continue using Media Player to play music I listen to on YouTube? Or is there a safer one to use? My sound often gets turned off without my consent, and I don't like that!

If you say I should still use Media Player to hear sound and Youtube music, etc., then how should I configure it
without completely disabling it? Thanks.

You could use VLC Player [FREE] for Windows => VLC Player. It pretty much plays anything you throw at it video and music wise.

I hope this helps!

"Safest"? I assume you refer to the 'dark web', mwuahahahhaaa (the internet). Simply turn off the internet, use any player you like. You will be limited to music CD's/DVD's and any other music already on your unit.

Thanks for the advice! That's pretty much what others here said too! So it's confirmed!
