Hey folks - was just about to go looking for Foobar, but wondered if there's any decent music players that I'd missed out on that all the kids are using these days?

I'm using Windows, dont want to use iTunes or Windows Media Player, just wondered what was 'cool and hip' these days?

I use WMP, everything else is just over-kill. Though I did use Winamp for a long time.

Windows: Foobar2000
OS X: iTunes
Linux: DeadBeef

Do you want a music player or music manager?
Music player = Foobar 2000
Music manager = iTunes, MediaMonkey, etc.

For the last year or so I've been using AIMP 3. It's an amazing music player. Light on resources, sounds great (better than foobar), and it has some really decent looking skins, that don't require lots of files to get working. It's like winamp, but better.

Just a player tbh, doesnt have to be flash, I just havent played MP3s on my PC in ages and figured Id probably missed out on something.

For Windows, Foobar 2000 just because it's stupidly flexible and I can tie it in to my LCD panel and notification system and I don't actually have to see the thing. (Media keys and/or taskbar controls, don't need all sorts of bling on the screen.) When I occasionally feel the need to fire up my BSD partition, Banshee, but it's a bit dusty.

Well, this is what personally works for me. If you like it, I could always upload my theme file for you so you can have a head start.

You can use WMP. It is nice and fullfill your need what you want. It is easy to use and many functions.

Winamps always been my favourite, I like FLAC so it does well playing that, its simple and does what I need whilst not being totally ugly like some others I've tried (foobar)
I like how I can have artists/albums and tracks all displayed at once with a playlist also.

I started using J-River for a while also, I quite liked that.
