Good media players


#1

I need a good media player to play music/vids. What do you guys use and recommend?


#2

Use separate players for music and videos. VLC/Pure Codec Player for videos and Winamp for music or whatever works for you.


#3

Combined Community Codec Pack and Media Player Classic for vids
Winamp for music


#4

I like VLC and Media Player Classic. There’s also the K-Lite codec packs.


#5

I use kmplayer for video
and Foobar2000 for music, they are both very powerful and have lots of functions


#6

I use Media Player Classic coupled with FFDShow to handle all the various codecs.

I watch a lot of DVDs that have interlaced video and FFDShow has some amazing deinterlacing abilities.

If you don’t want to fool with a lot of settings, I suggest VLC. It usually plays anything without too much fiddling.


#7

GOM player for videos, and Foobar 2000 for my music


#8

VLC/foobar2000

I’ve had too many compatability issues with ffdshow to keep those bloody things installed.


#9

VLC
Amarok
MPlayer


#10

Same.


#11

VLC is an amazing movie player.
I generally listen to music through my 360 and my sound system so the only music player on my windows system is WMP11. I use Amarok on my Linux boxes. I’ve yet to find a decent light weight music player.

foobar2000 for music

media player classic or VLC for video
