Default Best Music App

Since Itunes is a POS in Vista, I need a good player to play, organize, and compile my music upon.

I love Itunes, and will switch back once it works right (due to my ipod usage)
But in the meantime, i want a good player.

I dont really care to use WMP either, never liked it.

But if it is the best, i will use it. Thats why im asking you guys.

WMP is my choice but you don't seem to like it

Winamp and Foobar are a couple of other apps I have installed. Don't use much but they are pretty good.

Just curious....

Why can't you use iTunes? I'm using it in Vista x64 and it's fine...especially since v7.2 came out a few days ago. I haven't had any problems with it...

Hmm, that's weird...definately don't have that problem here. I'm running it in both x86 and x64 with no problems.

QCD hands down... Its been my main media player for years, and uses 0-2% CPU while playing music, and packed with more features you can shake a stick at.

iTunes could be nice way to organize your music library, but it is too slow and unresponsive even on my quadcore with 4GB of RAM. The best you can get on Vista is definitely WMP 11, especially its x64 version. Million times faster than iTunes, looks better, and more functionality.

WMP 11 is even better organizing music than iTunes, and can browse and play video as well, pictures, online streams, etc.

Microsoft did an extremely good job with this one.



Very nice and useful is also WMP11 toolbar integration:



Before, on Windows XP, I used heavily customized Foobar2000, not bad either:

QCD is so much better
Just look at their selection of skins
So many nice, simple, compact ones
Big, bulky players suck
