Other than Windows Media player and Musicmatch what is the best audio player?
Have you tried Winamp, very good audio player. Imo 2.90 is the best version as small file and fast access. The newer versions are slower and bulky.
Google your way to JetAudio -- it's FRee and also has a companion called JetCast where you can broadcast over the net to your heart content !!
Thanks for the info
I Have been using Jet Audio for almost a year now and it has a lot of nice features -- it can Convert -- RIP and BURN -- Record -- listen to broadcast on the JetCast network -- play Mp3's and the likes ...Play almost all types of movies. ~~

Always liked Sonique myself, been going through a bit of a rough time with corporate takeovers lately but Sonique 2 is close to release and is incredibly cool.
I like zinf pretty much! But I dont know how does it works on windows (im using linux right now).
For windows, i use Ashampoo. Its good enough and can record audio cds as well. It plays videos too.
the newest version of winamp is excellent. Hard to believe it's actually an AOL product!
You can watch video, listen to radio, there are even links to streaming music vids on winamps sites... of course you can also listen to MP3 and so on - but the best feature is ability to skin it. Truw a lot of players have this, but winamp has more skins than you've had hot dinners. It allows me to use a skin that take up little real estate on my screen. Perfect.
I used Sonique for a while too and it's also very good... but I still prefer winamp at the mo.
-Like yojimbo2k stated Winamp is a good audio player and like Windows Media player it also plays Video.
I have it since V.2.00 and it always has found a home on all the PC I own or build for others. It’s a good piece of Software. The Free version is good and the Pro ($14.95) is better not bad for a program that also burns audio CD and the number of Plug-in supported is big.
Give the Free version a try see if you like it.
well that’s my two cents.
I like dBpowerAMP audio player the best, it's free doesn't take up much cpu so you can always run it in the background, it doesn't take a long time to load big playlists and you can edit the tags while you listen. Doesn't convert but i just use another program for that.
I use the latest version of Winamp 5. It plays all my mp3 files & even flac files (lossless) once I found the plugin on the Winamp site.
The only thing I use WMP 10 (Windows Media Player) for is playing audio CD's (Winamp will do that too) & WMA files.
Been happy with Winamp since version .92 or so. Hated version 3 so I stayed with 2 until the new version 5 came out. It's great!
One moore. Foobar 2000. Not so nice looking but if there is little differents in sounds i like that.
Just a note to say thanks and what a great web site afterdawn is. I just got into the video burning and have learned alot by reading the forms (thx scubapete). I had always used musicmatch but the most recent will not work on my pc. Prob because I'm using ME. I went back to an ealier version and I'm gonna try Jetaudio.
Me likes Quintessential player
If you ask me winamp is just an average player.
I like my music to sound good and it can't do that.
I tried it for a few days and played around with the settings and it just couldn't compare to realplayer.
Used the latest version aswell.
I only use Realplayer for realaudio & realvideo files & yes I have the player thats paid for with all the extra bells & whistles.
I just prefer Winamp (the paid version) for playing mp3 files even though Realplayer (& Windows Media Player) will play them also.
Everybody has a favorite player. Mine's Winamp!
