Alternatives to DivX? - Page 3

post #31 of 38
Not to derail, but IMO the question on the best video player is pretty cut and dry (VLC or MPC). But....what about the best audio/mp3 player? That's a much tougher, more subjective question. I use Audacious (Winamp clone for Linux), because I've been faithful to Winamp every since the very beginning.

I'm looking for something else, but can't settle for any of the other apps I tried. Didn't like Songbird, and I still can't see what all the hype is about over Amarok. Seems bloated for what it does, which is playing music.

Winamp lite. It's basically unchanged since like 1997, as it should be.

Winamp

Alright. Figured as much. I'll stick with Winamp/Audacious then. I just don't see the need or an audio player that scans your hard drive and makes libraries when I have an explorer window and well organized music directory. I don't even use playlist files. Just generate my own playlists dragging the mp3s into the Winamp list.

Foobar 2000 is sweet. At least have a look. Tabbed playlists, purdy customization options, etc. Also support for audiophile quality VST plugins. http://www.foobar2000.org/

I never got that either. And it's not like I don't have a terabyte of media.

I use:

Windows: Winamp
Linux: XMMS

People did not use VLC because they it did not do hardware acceleration until recently.
