    Gimme a New MP3 Player for my laptop

    Advertisement



    Okay, here's the background: I've been using MusicMatch Jukebox on my Dell Desktop for 4-5 years now, just because. Never liked WMP much for some reason. Yahoo bought it 2-3 years ago, and now you can't get the Jukebox without signing up for their subscription service. Pfft to that.

    So who uses a laptop media player besides WMP and iTunes. (I don't and never will own an iPod)

    Wadda ya think about others? And don't give me "WinAmp FTW" answers. I wanna know why you like it...

    Whoa, whoa, whoa. Why no iPod?? I just got the newest Classic to replace the old one, and it's amazing.

    Well, anyway... I use iTunes and my hubby uses WMP, so no go with that... But what about the VLC media player? I've heard people rave about it and all.. Usually about it being good for videos, but it stores your music as well. Why don't you look up the reviews on it??

    You said why you don't like WMP, but why not iTunes? And cant you set the subscription up for an e-mail addy you don't use, or is it a service where you have to pay??

    iTunes is just another Apple scheme. They want you to use their service with their device in their proprietary format, and buy it from their store. Which is bad enough, until you add the DRM crap they throw on it that locks the song.

    I want an app that lets me play the songs I already have. If I wanna purchase them in the future, I'll decide which format I want it in. Not Steve Jobs.

    Oh dear.

    It's that serious..that name calling is necessary?! I apologize that your poor player needs subscribers!

    Blu!... language!...


    VLC is for ALL platforms -- and with its own libraries, so you are not dependent on others' codecs.

    Irfanview is an old staple with some excellent features.

    Media Player Classic came with a codec-pack I installed ...

    Winamp is fine.

    Just DON'T use hogs/spies like current WMP... or Realplayer or Quicktime. BAD, BAD, BAD!
